Evergreen Adventure Camp program offers one and two-week camp sessions where campers aged 6–14 will explore the greener side of Toronto through new discoveries and adventures in the urban wild.

With more nature than any other city of its size in the world, Toronto offers children and youth an ideal environment in which to uncover the wilderness that lies beneath the urban landscape. We’ve seen how outdoor play activates the body and engages the mind, inviting Evergreen Adventure campers to develop a new relationship with the natural world and inspiring a new generation of environmental stewards in the process.

Can my camper be in the same group as their friend?

Building a fun, friendly and accepting group of campers is a key goal for Evergreen Adventure Camp, and we encourage all campers to build new friendships. 

To ensure this, we accept friend requests only if the campers are in the same grade program and session, and we limit the requests to one per camper. Friend requests that are not in the same grade and session group will not be considered. We are unable to guarantee friend requests. 

What do you do in inclement weather?

We’re outside as much as possible! We love the outdoors at camp and spend as much time outside as we can. That being said, we do have access to indoor space at all times and can spend some time inside in extreme weather, such as thunder, lightning, hail, extreme heat.

My camper is too old for your camp. What other opportunities are there at camp for them?

We have a Leaders-in-Training program designed for ages 12-14. As well, we are always looking for volunteers to support our camp program! Please contact our camp office if you’re interested in volunteering.
