    Toronto Met Day Camps answered our questions

    Who are you as an organization?

    Toronto Metropolitan University has offered safe and fun day camp experiences since 1984. We welcome campers age 6 - 17 to Toronto Met's beautiful downtown campus for a program that is renowned for high-quality instruction and caring camp staff. Our camp programs are organized into three branches: Sport Camps, Discovery Camps, and Leadership Programs. Our Sport Camps aim to foster positive associations with sport and physical activity, building fundamental sport skills in a fun and supportive environment. Our Discovery Camps connect curious campers with the best our university has to offer, from architecture to science. Our Leadership programs prepare youth to be leaders in the classroom, on a team, or as a future Camp Counsellor.

    • Special needs: Yes, mild support.
      A few of our campers have special needs.
    • LGBTQ+ friendly community

    What do you do differently or uniquely well?

    "Campers at Toronto met Day Camps get to take advantage of everything our university has to offer. This includes programming in state of the art facilities, coaching from nationally ranked coaches and athletes, and instruction from students and professors who are experts in their field.
    There are not many camps where you can get tips from a national champion basketball player one week, learn Adobe Illustrator from a university professor the next week, and get hockey coaching from an Olympic gold medalist the week after that, but that's life at Toronto Met Day Camps!"

    Who are your staff and counsellors?

    "Staff at Toronto Met Day Camps reflect the full diversity of expertise and backgrounds at Toronto Metropolitan University. Our Camp Instructors are each an expert in their field, whether that is an academic subject (at our Discovery Camps) or a varsity sport (at our Sport Camps). Alongside them are our Camp Counsellors, most of whom join us from TMU's Child & Youth Studies program or as long-time campers at the Toronto Met Day Camps program.
    All staff complete mandatory training that focuses on ensuring campers are supported and safe, including emergency procedures, equity & inclusion, and more.
    All staff complete a criminal background check, and must hold valid certification in Standard First Aid throughout the summer."

    What do families need to know about registration?

    "We've endeavored to make registration as simple as possible while ensuring we collect the information necessary to support your camper during their time at camp.
    To register, just head to torontomu.ca/camps and click the blue "Register for Camp" button on the right side of any page.
    Unlike other camps, all campers are accepted into Toronto Met Day Camps; there is no application process, interview, or tryout.
    Registration opens mid-February, and full details are available on our website."

    COVID-19 Response 

    At Toronto Met Day Camps, the well-being of our campers and staff is our top priority. Our camp is committed to following the most up-to-date Ministry of Health guidance on providing safe programming to children & youth.

    By adhering to these requirements, we can protect our campers and focus on what camp is all about: having fun!

  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Toronto Met Day Camps

    our take

    There are some distinct benefits to camps run, as this one is, by a world-class educational institution. The resources are rich and ample in ways that, understandably, other kinds of camps could never replicate. Science sessions are held in world-class, fully equipped lab settings; sports are conducted in professional-grade facilities. That's true of all offerings, which are varied and unique. There are News Academy camps, where kids learn about journalism while participating within a professional news gathering and broadcasting setting. There’s a bit of imagination to it all—kids who dream of being on camera news readers, for example, will be living the dream—but not much, given that, well, it’s all real and it’s all happening, with real equipment. For the right kids, it's literally a dream come true. Less obvious at first glance, but equally true, is that camps are run by staff who are at the same level, and who are themselves looking to careers in the areas that they teach within, if not having already achieved that. The location is a draw, to be sure, in the heart of the city and easily accessible by public transit. The camps have been run since 1984, and are administered with expertise and experience.

    • I'm Sure They Will be Back Next Year!

      “I just wanted to say thank you to you and your wonderful staff and volunteers. My children attended the Multi-Sport and Multi-Fun Camp last week and had a fabulous time. This was (my son’s) first day camp experience and he loved it! They were sad to leave. I’m sure they will be back next year!”

    • Full Marks for Camp!

      “Another awesome summer camp – you have a done a fantastic job. This is the second time (my daughter) attended the Eureka Camp, and she gave your camp full mark! She keeps talking about how much fun it was and how friendly the teacher was. A great experience, and we will be back for sure. Next year her brother will also attend!”

    • My Daughter's Counsellor

      “I wanted to write you to let you know that my kids had a very positive experience at sports camp. I really appreciate all that the counsellors and organizers have done to make this such a positive experience for the kids.

      I can’t say enough about (my daughter’s) counsellor, and how great she is. (My daughter) thought so highly of her counsellor that she asked if she could be her public school teacher this September for Grade 5!”
