Three concurrent camp programs will run throughout the summer at Discover Day Camp: our 4-6 year-olds program, our Grade 1-6 program, and our Leaders In Training (LIT) and Counselor In Training (CIT) Programs for students in Grades 7 to 9. Our wide-ranging and well-balanced programs give campers plenty of choices and opportunities to learn, grow and express themselves. Whether you are 4 or 14, whatever your skill level or needs, you will find a wide range of amazing activities to captivate you.
Program information and SAMPLE day-schedules can be found below. More detailed information will be added throughout the Spring as we get closer to the beginning of Camp.
4 to 6 Year-Old Program
Campers in our 4-6 year-old group will enjoy an outdoor-focused day-camp program that will take place at TMS and leverage the school’s incredible Lower School campus amenities, as well as surrounding ravine area. Daily programming will include sports, creative arts, science and nature with activities like: basketball, soccer, arts and crafts, dance (e.g. hip hop), magic, yoga, computer coding and swimming.
Grade 1 to 6 Program
Our Grade 1-6 campers will receive an incredible program that combines a wide variety of specialty activities that will take place at our TMS Discovery Day camp location, and also experience an amazing outdoor educational program in partnership with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. Two days of the week, campers will visit Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area and Lake St. George Field Centre. While at these facilities, they will participate in programming such as learning wilderness survival skills, canoeing, pontoon boat rides, ropes courses, campfire building and more! The combination of these two programs will give the campers a sense of being away, while just steps from the city!
Leaders In Training (LIT) and Counselors In Training (CIT) Program
For students who have completed Grades 6, 7 and 8 (Leaders in training), and Grade 9 (Counsellors in training), we offer a program that will allow them the opportunity to work alongside experienced counsellors, specialists and instructors in cabin groups throughout the day in order to gain valuable hands-on experience in a variety of areas such as team work, communication, problem solving and skill development.
While participating in weekly placements, students will work on setting goals for themselves, plan and implement programming for younger campers alongside their peers, as well as learn behaviour management techniques and strategies to motivate campers. These life-long learning skills will benefit students throughout their life no matter what path they choose.
Throughout the program, students will take part in workshops, team building sessions and fun programming, enabling our LIT’s/CIT’s a memorable camp experience within their peer group. Our LIT/CIT coordinator will work closely with students ensuring that relationships are built, and memories are made for a lifetime. Students in either program will receive a certificate of completion and will also be eligible to receive up to 40 volunteer hours.
