About this camp

Harbourfront Centre Camps
 

Since 1979 Harbourfront Centre Camps have fostered an inclusive learning community that encourages long-lasting connections to contemporary arts, culture and ideas. We are committed to creating a safe, inclusive and diverse community that allows our campers to learn and interpret the world through dialogue, social interaction and hands-on activities. 

For the third year in a row, we will be linking our programming to Harbourfront Centre's BRAVE festival. Our theme of INSPIRATION will be used to help shape the camper experience. Campers will engage with concepts such as: What inspires you? Who inspires who? How can you find inspiration? What does it mean to try something new and go outside of your comfort zone?


The Our Kids review of Harbourfront Centre Camps

 

Some camps are up north, in the bush, away from the all the hustle and bustle of the city, and one of the great strengths of the Harbourfront Centre programs is that it isn’t: it’s nearby, close to all of the resources of the city. Because of that, it offers a greater range of activity that you’ll find anywhere, including everything from theatre arts, to sports, to digital storytelling, and on and on. The staffing benefits from the proximity to the city, with instructors bringing a rich range of experience and expertise. Campers enroll within areas of interest, and in so doing enter a setting of peers who share that interest, an experience that in itself can be transformative. Most of the programs are day programs, though not all are—there are overnight options as well, including during the March break. There are PA day sessions as well. Now entering their fourth decade, the Harbourfront Centre programs are as established as any you’ll find anywhere, inclusive of a unique culture and approach to learning, doing, and having fun.

Reviews & Testimonials


TheatreKids
Jenny O. — Parent

My kids had an awesome time at TheatreKids Camp. I was truly amazed at how wonderful the play was with only one week of practice. The best part was that, right away, my kids said that they really wanted to go back again.


Most enthusiastic camp counselors
Carole B. — Parent

My son attended Canoe and Basketball camp. He had a blast at both and enjoyed the counselors. He has attended other camps and, by far, Harbourfront Centre has the most enthusiastic camp counselors, is the most organized (the parking arrangement is wonderful) with good security. I would recommend it to anyone.


First-time camper
Parent — Parent

Our first Harbourfront Centre Camps experience was wonderful! Our 4-year-old first-time camper jumped off the bus at the end of each day full of stories about friends, games, and her camp leader. She is eager to return to camp next summer!


Great option for young and older kids
Parent — Parent

My son spent four weeks at various summer camps and the programming is so varied he was never bored, and he especially learned water sports skills and safety. If you live or work in the downtown core, it's a great option for both young and older kids.


Bursting with excitement
Parent — Parent

Both my kids absolutely loved their camps at Harbourfront Centre and were bursting with excitement for the entire time they were there. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you Harbourfront Centre — we'll see you next year!


Eager to try these recipes at home
Parent — Parent

My son came home from Culinary Camp and is eager to try these recipes at home, and my other son in Mad Science is ready to install the bird feeder in the backyard and know what seeds to select to attract his favorite birds.


Highly recommend
Parent — Parent

My daughter really loved her camp. She was quite excited to share all her art work with us. She learned about different techniques of painting and craft work. I highly recommend the camp for kids who love to experiment with art!!


1:1 fabulous
Parent — Parent

My son has autism and he is a saying this was his favorite camp by far, the 1:1 was fabulous.


Circus, Fashion and Theatre!
A.N. — Camper

I participated in three camps: Circus, Fashion and Theater. I loved them because the instructors where very experienced and knew a lot about the thing they where teaching. All three camps challenged me because they taught me things I didn't know in many fields. For Circus it is my second year and I am in the advanced group, I do really cool things. I gained many new friends throughout the summer. For sure I will come next year again.

Stories


Feedback from our 2016 Season!

"Everyone loved everything about camp"

"He had a fantastic time and always enjoys the great counselors and activities"

"My son absolutely loved the Camp.  He went for one week without a friend and could not have been happier.  I found everything about the process easy."

"All the programs were fantastic. They loved the variety of activities that were planned each day, the counselors were very helpful and fun."

"He loved the whole experience and talked for weeks after about coming back."

"My son had a great time at canoe camp - he spoke highly of his counselors and the activities"

"She LOVED her Camp experience. She thought it was a good mix of fun and challenge"

"Totally loved it. Wished they had started coming 2 years earlier (their own words)."

"My son loved his counselors.  The two counselors had a huge impact on my son.  I cannot even begin to describe it.  I had registered him for 2 weeks and he asked for one more week to be with these two incredible young men.  As a parent, I am thankful that he had the opportunity to spend time with these two.  Very positive influence!!"

"My daughter came home every afternoon speaking very highly of her camp counselors."

"Yes, so much! Everyday we picked her up was "the best day ever"."

"The choice of camps for older children was amazing!  I had trouble looking for things to do this summer with my new 14 year-old and Harbourfront Centre Camps gave her an opportunity to DO something instead of just sit at home.  There was an amazing variety and I was so pleased to  have been told by my friend!  I find most camps only focus on younger children but kids between the ages of 10-14 need to be active and stimulated too.  Thank you for making her summer all that much more interesting during the day when parents need to be at work."

"She had a wonderful time, and is already looking forward to going next summer."
