Camp U of T Scarborough

Camp U of T Scarborough looks different this year, but fun is still our goal! Our experienced staff have been hard at work adapting programs, workshops and activities into virtual options for our campers. Children between the ages of 5-12 will have a positive virtual experience in a variety of arts, cooking and science programs that closely resemble the traditional in person camp experience. We also offer a Youth Leadership Certificate program (Leaders-in-Training) that provides comprehensive workshops and character-building techniques.

PROGRAMS OFFERED

Our multifaceted virtual programs for children are offered weekly between July 5-30, the programs offered are STEAM Lego, Robotics, Science, Indigenous Culture, Magic Show & Workshop, Baking, Cooking, Afro-Caribbean Dance and Visual Arts. We also offer complimentary registration for “Friday Special Events” (Game Craze) for all registered camp participants.

What is Game Craze?

Envision your children participating in a fusion of online board and card games in real time, moving from one fun-filled game room to another using many cool features the Zoom platform offers that makes learning fun!

Friday Special Events are free for campers who are registered for at least one 5-day virtual camp.

TESTIMONIALS

VIRTUAL SPRING BREAK CAMP (APRIL 12-16, 2021)... 

Great program, my 7 year old truly enjoyed all the sessions registered for including Lego, robotics, art and cooking. 
The Lego and Cooking camps were amazing!
Thank you for offering these classes. My children really enjoyed the classes they entered and they were very engaged.  I also listened in, and I thought the hosts did an excellent job!
Compared to some of the other virtual programs we had our child enrolled in, these were some of the best. It was the right mix of engagement, participation and guidance. The organizers were wonderful.
