The United Youth of Canada summer camp was started in 2006. Founders Andrea Tull and her husband hoped to use creative means to provide kids with opportunities to learn and grow in a different, creative way. The camp offers a variety of arts and craft activities as well as sports and trips for kids ages 6-12.

United Youth of Canada summer camp runs from July 7th to August 8th from 9am to 4pm. While at camp, kids are placed in different groups each week not only to meet other campers but so that they can learn how to work as a team with any set of individuals. Each team earns points for daily competitions and low-organized games, with the team leading at the end of each week being awarded a small prize.

A wide selection of activities is offered weekly, with each day being assigned a specific theme: Monday –Acquaintance, Tuesday – Nature, Wednesday – Drama & Dance, Thursday – Cultural, and Friday – Trips.

The different activities at camp help the children to gain self confidence and also build leadership skills at such a young age. The camp also encourages independent work so that the kids can showcase their creativity and talents.

  1. This is excellent, sounds like a great program!

    It is wonderful to know that the TCDSB Focus on Youth Progam was supporting such an amazing camp!

    All the best, take care and have a great weekend!
