Who doesn’t love stopping in to say hello to some adorable cats and dogs?

A spectacular hidden gem offers a lovely view of the city. We also stop by the old Don Jail.

Sidewalks labs showed us the ways in which technology is going to change the future of urban living and the possible changes that could be coming to Toronto’s waterfront.

We end the day with 20 minutes of free time to walk through the Distillery unaccompanied by counsellors to explore the shops and sights of old Toronto on their own.

Homemade Jamican patties. Chicken, beef or goat? Enjoyed in the beautiful Bellevue Square Park.

Food day is navigated by our campers. We give them a map and assist them as they figure out our route around town for that day.

These delicious cakes are made with an impressive conveyor belt system!

Tucked among the TD skyscrapers is one of the city's most vibrant spaces.

We learn anything and everything from experienced Transit enforcement officers. Even our counsellors learned some new safety tips.

The PATH challenge is our most difficult and beloved game of the week. Campers are split into groups and given two hours to find and complete as many questions as they can from all over the path.

Teams are either blue, green, or yellow after the subway lines (Counsellors are purple). Flags were judged on their subway references. 

Basketball, foosball, rubberband shooting and map reading are some of the mini-challenges that team members can compete in.

Using just north, south, east and west your team must navigate through the city to beat the other teams to the final destination first!

Surprisingly, 10-13 year-olds struggle with not talking for an hour.

Your team is given a map to navigate through the park and figure out where different pictures were taken.

After a week of walking through the whole city who doesn’t want a relaxing beach day?
