The TCAG runs a full day camp program during all school breaks and nine weeks of the summer. 
Camps are organized according to age group for children from 5 through 10 years of age on a full-time basis. 

What Is Camp Like?

Each week of TCAG camp is carefully planned by our staff team and counsellors, and is designed to encourage exploration, creativity and social skill-building. Camp weeks are themed, and often include a field trip, guest workshop, or special theme day!  
Here’s what a typical summer camp day looks like:

7:30 – 9:00am Morning Extended Care
9:00 – 9:15am Group Opening Circle
9:15 – 10:00am Program 1
10:00 – 10:30am Morning Snack
10:30 – 11:15am Program 2
11:15 – 12:00pm Program 3
12:00 – 12:45pm Lunch
1:00 – 2:00pm Swim  
2:30 – 3:00pm Afternoon Snack
3:00 – 3:45pm Program 4
3:45 – 4:00pm Group Closing Circle
4:00 – 4:30pm Free Time Play
4:30 – 5:30pm Afternoon Extended Care

While we strive to be a fully accessible facility, we currently do not have the staffing to support campers on a 1:1 basis. 

For this reason, and to help ensure a successful camp experience for each and every participant, it is important that all campers are able to cope in a busy, highly populated, stimulating environment and are able to follow directions. 

Some independence is required for campers to be successful in our camp environment. In addition, for safety reasons, any camper that displays consistent difficulty following the rules of camp, the direction of camp counsellors or refuses to participate will be required to be picked up by a parent/guardian. 

We believe in the importance of camp for all kids – if you’d like further information about our partner organizations and finding a camp that might be a better fit for your child, please give us a call at 905-227-0545 ext. 26

Our Camp Leadership Team is comprised of an exceptionally qualified staff. 

At TCAG, we invest in a months-long hiring process, consisting of rigorous screening and interviewing, to ensure we have a dedicated team keen and skilled to deliver the best possible summer experience for your campers. Many of our counsellors are experienced educators, or are pursuing studies in teaching, outdoor education, and other related fields! 

Our devoted and enthusiastic team of counsellors are motivated to create an environment that fosters growth, empowering campers to explore their natural abilities and understand the value of teamwork and collaboration. Our ultimate goal is to offer an enjoyable and thrilling summer experience that inspires our campers, instills them with courage, confidence, and a strong sense of self, wherever their future takes them.
