The Our Kids review of Medics Camp


There is truly a camp to meet every interest, and Medics Camp is a great example of that. It was founded by Amanda Farris, who brings a wealth of experience, including some gained at the venerable Johns Hopkins University and medical school in Baltimore, Maryland. Play and roleplay are important aspects of the sessions, with kids diving in to their new identities as practicing physicians. There’s a strong curricular element as well, providing kids with a foundation in the medical arts, sciences, first aid, healthy living, and personal safety. Staff are vibrant and attuned to creating an interactive inspiring atmosphere. Before and after care is offered at all three locations, something which families understandably appreciate.

Reviews & Testimonials

Medics Camp-Great from Start to Finish
Maria — Parent

My daughter had a phenomenal time at the Mini Medics Camp in July. From the very first day she was excited to tell us all about what she learned about germs. She came home on that first day and had to make a ‘home’ for her germ, which she took into camp with her each day the rest of the week. She learned about lungs, the heart, breaks, sprains, choking and much more in a positive an interactive way. She has asked to go back next year. As a parent it is wonderful feedback. This is truly a wonderful program and I am super thrilled to have come across the ad for this camp. The Mini Medics Camp is definitely going to be on our list of camps for next year. Keep up the terrific work. My daughter loved it! - Maria

Delighted and Impressed
Marnie — Parent

"What a delightful, educational, comprehensive and exceptionally run camp!! We were impressed from beginning to end, every day a new learning experience and opportunities to grow as a mini medic and empathetic camper. The counsellors were wonderful & fun and the impression and knowledge you left my son with was unmatched by any other camp he attended this summer. Weeks later he is still incorporating his learning & terminology in his day to day and enthusiastically sports his camp medics shirt and badge any chance he gets ;) Superb teaching! Thank you Amanda & Team, we’ll be back!"

Excited about Learning
J.K. — Parent

My 9 year old son came home excited everyday to tell me what he learned. It inspired many discussions about health and disease, genetics and professions that are related to medicine. This camp was ideal because it combined involved and enthusiastic staff, fun activities and a multitude of learning opportunities. We are already looking forward to next year!

Kid Approved
Kristine — Parent

My 8 year old daughter absolutely adored this camp. She wasn't sure at first whether she'd like it, but she had a blast every day and on the last day raved about all the fun activities. Definitely recommend it!!

Different, Rewarding and FUN!
J.M. — Parent

My kids (9 & 7) attended medic camp a few weeks ago. They had the BEST time. The kids did something new every day and they came away from camp with so many valuable learnings. The camp was very well organized. Amanda was great! The instructors were very nice and fun. We will be back next year! I’d recommend this camp to any parent looking for a camp that’s different and rewarding.

Director's Message

Amanda Farris, Owner, Creator and Director of Medics Camp

I'm pleased to announce the launch of online registration for our 2019 summer camp season and we've expanded!  This year, Medics Camp will be available in Newmarket, Aurora and Richmond Hill.  In addition to our "Mini Medics" and "Jr. Medics" age groups we're introducing "Munchkin Medics" for 5 & 6 year olds.  Now kids ages 5-12 can participate in the Medics Camp experience. 

The Medics team and myself are committed to providing each and every child an amazing camp experience that starts from the time they walk through the Medics Camp doors in the morning until we say goodbye to them at the end of each day.  If you're looking for a camp your child will talk about all the way home, this is it.
