June 23, 2020 City of Toronto registration for CampTO programs begins tomorrow
Registration for City of Toronto CampTO programs begins tomorrow for Etobicoke/York and Scarborough districts and on Thursday for remaining districts. The City is offering summer camps across Toronto beginning July 13 as part of its CampTO initiative, following the Province of Ontario announcement that summer day camps can operate during the Province’s Stage 2 reopening.
CampTO programs details are available online: http://www.toronto.ca/camps.
Registration for CampTO will take place beginning at 7 a.m. on:
- Wednesday, June 24 for Etobicoke/York and Scarborough districts
- Thursday, June 25 for Toronto/East York, West Toronto/York and North York districts
The quickest and easiest way to register is online at https://efun.toronto.ca. Phone registration will also be available at 416-396-7378. As Civic Centres and community recreation facilities remain closed, in-person registration will not be available.
Residents can call 416-396-7378 Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for help preparing for registration. Extended hours of operation from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. are offered today.
CampTO will offer more than 32,000 registered camp spaces for children between the ages of 6 and 12, over eight weeks of camps at approximately 150 locations across the city.
To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, CampTO programs will meet health guidelines designed in consultation with Toronto Public Health and in alignment with provincial health guidelines for day camps. Guidelines include smaller groups and lower capacity, physical distancing, mandatory health screening and enhanced facility cleaning.
CampTO will offer traditional day camp experiences, including dance, drama, music, arts and crafts and active games. In addition to camps offered at Parks, Forestry & Recreation locations, CampTO will also be offered at six Toronto History Museum sites and one City art centre.
Information on free programs and subsidies for recreation programs is available at http://www.toronto.ca/lowcostrecreation.
Approximately 68,000 summer camp registrations were cancelled in mid-May due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
