SUMMER CAMPS FOR KIDS

Evergreen Brick Works - 550 Bayview Ave Toronto, ON M4W 3X8
All camp programs are based on the STEAM principles: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math!
5 day camps @ $425 + HST
This summer we are offering our summer camps at a second location: the Evergreen Brick Works! Built in 1889, the Brick Works is a former quarry and industrial site located in the Don River Valley. Since the closure of the original factory, the Brick Works has been converted into a city park and environmentally focused cultural centre by Evergreen, a national charity dedicated to restoring nature in urban environments!
Camp days are dynamic and full of a range of mixed arts, science, and technology activities with outdoor time and team building exercises. Kids at The Brick Works experience a wide range of activities and disciplines that are delivered in a fun, responsive environment to encourage learning and curiosity! Our kids summer camps are open to kids grades 2-6 as of the September 2019 school year!
