We remain very positive and hopeful we will get to see all those City Scouts smiles in person this summer. Both the provincial and municipal governments are beginning to indicate to the public whether day camps will be able to operate this summer. As of right now, City Scouts is on! However, the situation is always changing and we are preparing ourselves for all scenarios. We do expect some changes will be made to the program this summer. We are going to keep our front page up to date as more information becomes available.
Please do not hesitate to call or email us with any questions

What is City Scouts?
City Scouts is an urban adventure camp for boys and girls aged 10-13. Our mission to teach campers how to navigate and appreciate everything their city has to offer. Kids explore, learn, taste, play, compete, and build wherever they go. By the end of each week, City Scouts have developed the confidence and knowledge to explore many areas of Toronto, while at the same time, embrace the wonders of the outdoors within an urban environment.
The campers are split into small groups. We welcome all kids 10-13-years-old and weekly rates range from $320 to $395.
City Scout Camp headquarters will be at the Church of the Holy Trinty at Bay and Queen this summer. We will send instructions on drop off prior to camp.
"We often think of camp as synonymous with the presence of a lake, some forest, canoes and campfires. Of course, camp isn’t that. You could even have all those things and still not have camp. A better definition would be this: counsellors who work to bring kids together to have fun, to grow, to experience new things, and to build friendships, skills and resilience. And, while City Scouts may not look like the camp stereotype, it nevertheless provides all of those things in abundance.
Riley Millican founded City Scouts in a belief in the power of counsellors’ ability to build great relationships, and in the understanding that the urban jungle, in and of itself, is a fantastic place to explore. This isn’t about going to attractions—the ROM one day, the AGO the next, and Wonderland at the end of the week—but really digging in and experiencing the city in and of itself. Which, frankly, kids love, as well they should.
The city is a vibrant place that they often only see while on their way somewhere; they lack authentic opportunities to interact with the spaces and the people they find there. City Camp is, for many kids, a unique opportunity to slow down, even within the urban rush, and to explore their world in a new way with a bunch of other kids just like them, and all wearing the same t-shirts. For parents, it’s a great, eminently cost-effective option, right there on your doorstep."
