The Our Kids review of Seneca College King Day Camp

 

King Day Camp is located at Seneca College, King Campus in King City, Ontario, within the Oak Ridges Moraine. The location, frankly, couldn’t be better. The camp rightly describes it as a “taste of the north in your own backyard,” and they’re not kidding—in so many ways it really is. The site includes wetland, a lake, extensive forest and an equally extensive trail network. The resources available there are vast, including indoor spaces, a swimming pool, mountain bikes, and world-class high- and low-ropes facilities. It literally has all the amenities that you might find in the best equipped overnight camps, though offering it all to day campers. The staff is large and experienced. There’s a lot to love, to be sure, in what is a very unique offering.

Camp is life!expand

Enter story here... "Camp for me, describe my life. It has been a big part of making me who I am. I have been a part of camp for my whole life. As a kid I attended different camps and when I was too old to be a camper I made sure to stay associated by getting a camp job. Camp was with me when I was growing and learning about relationships and accepatance. Camp has given me confidence, ambition, empathy, enthusiasm, coping skills, relationships and most importantly, a safe place to express who I am..I LOVE CAMP! It is funny because so many of my friends that never attended camp did not undersatnd the camp family and the commitement that comes so easily towards it. Camp taught me the type of person I wanted to be and also led me to exploring new experiences. Camp introduced me to people with special needs which is now my chosen career path. I owe camp so much; a debt I will repay by always remaining part of the camp family. Camp makes the world a better place with the lessons and e xperiences it teaches and allows for. Thank you camp for all you do! " Christine, camper and staff. ...
