About this Camp

Toronto Kidz
 

We offer a wide range of camps for children 5-12. Our multi activity camp follows a weekly theme - Pirate & Mermaids, Underwater World, Dinosaurs, Animals- while our specialized camps focus on Science, Fitness, Outdoors, Arts, etc. Kids look forward to experiences to keep mentally and physically active, encourage team play and leadership. Weekly field trips take us to Toronto's main attractions.


The Our Kids review of Toronto Kidz

 

Brigitte Gallegos, founder and director of Toronto Kidz Summer Camp created the camp to make the most of what the city has to offer. She wanted to allow kids to explore areas of their city, and to let experience the full range of what it has to offer. The programs—a series of weekly day camp sessions offered throughout the summer months—have been designed to access those possibilities. Each session is built around a specific theme, and the entire city is a programming resource: Pirates Week includes a cruise around Centre Island; Animals and Nature Week includes a trip to High Park Nature Centre; Pokémon Week includes a visit to Fort York. It is run out of a space within the St. Martin-in-the-Fields church, just north of High Park and in the heart of one of the city’s most varied urban communities. The location, in any way you care to look at it, has a lot to offer. There are private green spaces and a wealth of indoor activity space, all of it providing a welcome break from the bustle of the city. Each day at camp includes crafts and drawing, and stimulation with music and dance. The course of each day includes all of that, from running games in the park, to sitting quietly to record the day’s events in a journal.


The 2020 Experience at Toronto Kidz

We continue monitoring the situation in Ontario and following guidelines provided by the Provincial Government and Public Health. At this point day camps are yet to be allowed to open for the summer and once this decision is made, we will review the provided restrictions and guidelines and then hope to open the camp for in-person programming, even just for a few weeks.

In the meantime, we make a decision for each week with 1 month notice. Currently we are hoping to being able to open as early as July 13th for our 3rd week.

While we know that virtual programming can never replace an in-person camp experience for a child, we want to give especially working parents the peace of mind of a high-quality and engaging virtual program to sign their kids up for. That's why we are offering our Online Summer Stay Camp which offers half days (mornings or afternoons) and also full day options. The program will be as varied as our very popular regular summer program and will offer children a platform to spend time with peers and our counselors in a valuable and meaningful way.

Reviews & Testimonials


My girls had an amazing time
Michelle - a parent — Parent

"... I wanted to thank you and your staff. My girls had an amazing time. They were very nervous about starting the week and knowing no one. By the end of the first day they were asking if they could come back next Summer and going on and on about camp. By the end of the week they were asking if we could move to Toronto part time. Thank you again for offering a wonderful camp and embracing my kids."


my son told me he LOVES Toronto Kidz
Nicky - a parent — Parent

“I just wanted to share that my son told me he LOVES Toronto Kidz camp, after his first day today. He says it’s the best camp he’s been to so far…Sending a quick note to say thank you for all that you and your team do.”


Absolutely LOVED this summer camp last year
Melissa - a parent — Parent

“Absolutely LOVED this summer camp last year and so did my son! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my daughter is going to be able to experience it as well this summer. Brigitte and her team are simply spectacular. They go above and beyond in the programming and quality of the arts & crafts and the kids have a blast…”

Director's Message

Brigitte Gallegos, Director

We are passionate about the urban family life in Toronto and raising kids in this versatile city. We believe that living here offers children the opportunity to grow into independent, open minded and global citizens. With TORONTO KIDZ we want to offer families in Toronto children services that are accessible, affordable and a lot of fun! Our summer camp is the first one of many services that we’ll offer to support busy families in Toronto.

Brigitte, the Camp Director has always been passionate about kids and how to raise a caring child who goes through life seeing its endless possibilities. Working in the travel industry with Youth trips and lately for WE, a charity that empowers youth to change the world, she has witnessed how interested and caring the next generation is. With TORONTO KIDZ, she hopes to contribute to raising the next generation in a meaningful way.

Stories


Exploring the city with Toronto Kidz

“It’s such a great city for kids,” says Brigitte Gallegos, founder and director of Toronto Kidz Summer Camp. Certainly, she created the camp for precisely that reason: to make the most of what the city has to offer. She wanted to allow kids to explore areas of their city, “to let them see that there are so many possibilities, so many things that they can explore and do.”

The programs—a series of weekly day camp sessions offered throughout the summer months—have been designed to access those possibilities. Each session is built around a specific theme, and the entire city is a programming resource: Pirates Week includes a cruise around Centre Island; Animals and Nature Week includes a trip to High Park Nature Centre; Pokémon Week includes a visit to Fort York.

 

Finding a balance

 

It’s as much about getting out and seeing the world as it is about making connections between communities, ideas, and people. Gallegos comes to all of that honestly, having worked as a travel director for adult and youth groups, most recently as part of the Me To We staff.

Toronto Kidz is run out of a space within the St. Martin-in-the-Fields church, just north of High Park and in the heart of one of the city’s most varied urban communities. The location, in any way you care to look at it, has a lot to offer. There are private green spaces and a wealth of indoor activity space, all of it providing a welcome break from the bustle of the city.

Though, of course, the bustle is good too. “We know how great urban life can be for families.” For Gallegos, it’s about finding the right balance. “There’s a balance between being active outdoors and indoors,” as well as that between fine and gross motor skills. Each day at camp includes crafts and drawing, and stimulation with music and dance. The course of each day includes all of that, from running games in the park, to sitting quietly to record the day’s events in a journal.

In all, each day at Toronto Kidz is a pretty good day. Learning, growing, and building on personal strengths. “I like the way that children explore the world,” says Gallegos, “and I want to help them do that. It’s so nice to see kids be passionate about something.” She’s right of course. It really is.
