Camp U of T Welcome

Welcome to Camp U of T, an innovative range of programs designed to promote healthy, active lifestyles for 
children and youth. As part of the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education (KPE), Camp U of T boasts a quality of instruction unmatched by other camp programs. Our sport instructors include senior KPE students and members of U of T’s intercollegiate teams. Our Mini University instructors are senior undergraduate or graduate students in education or the field of study in which they are instructing. All of our staff members are committed to providing campers with the experience of a lifetime. Camp U of T offers a safe, fun and inclusive environment that gives campers a broad range of experiences and opportunities to try new things, make new friends and learn new ways to enjoy sport, recreation and play. The University of Toronto is also proud to be venue for the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games with field hockey, archery and Parapan football being hosted at the St. George campus. This means that Camp U of T will not be held at Varsity Centre and that some camps will not be offered in 2015. We’re looking forward to cheering on the athletes who are competing and to 2016 when Camp U of T will be back at Varsity Centre and expanding into our new facilities on Back Campus and the Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport.


 Camp U of T will be hosting a variety of Pan Am/Parapan Am activities where campers will have opportunities to learn about different Pan American and Caribbean cultures while gaining an appreciation for healthy, active living in their sport leadership or Mini University camps.

We are all looking forward to a very special 2015 summer here at Camp U of T. See you at camp!

Manager Children & Youth

Camper Information Package

Registered in camp for 2015?  The Camper Information package will be posted in early June.We ask that all parents and guardians review the information package for information about packing for camp, getting to and from camp,  swimming, health forms and other important information.

Inclusion + Support
Camp U of T teaches fundamental movement and sport skills to children & youth. We strive to make camp an enjoyable and physically active experience for all campers. Campers are expected to be able to participate in the full camp experience with minimal adaptation or an aide may be required. If, during camp programs Camp U of T staff feel that a camper requires support in order to ensure a safe and positive camp experience, for that camper and other campers in the group, the parents will be requested to provide an aide or alternative arrangement. Parents are encouraged to complete the Camp U of T intake form in order to assist with preparing for your child to attend camp. You will be contacted by a member of the Camp U of T administrative team to discuss the information. Information is kept confidentially and only shared with instructors and assistant instructors as needed. We appreciate your full disclosure in order to provide a safe environment for your children.

If your child requires or would benefit from an inclusion aide there are three options available:

Aide provided by parents:

The parent can provide an inclusion aide/support worker. The aide will be required to review a code of conduct, expectations and emergency procedures. A signed agreement is required. There is no additional fee for aides supplied by parents.

Aide provided in partnership with Reach for the Rainbow
Camp U of T partners with Reach for the Rainbow, www.reachfortherainbow.org to provide opportunities for children to participate in Camp U of T. Please contact Reach for the Rainbow for details including intake, costs and registration.

Aide provided by Camp U of T
Parents/guardians have the ability to register and request an aide from Camp U of T. These aides are assistant instructors with an interest in inclusion and some additional training. There is a partial cost-recovery fee for this service of $200 in addition to the registration fee for a five day camp week (based on $5/hour for 40 hours). Children of U of T students will pay a fee of $100 for a five day camp week; proof of student status is required.
