OUR NEW AND EXCITING WEEK 9 END OF SUMMER PROGRAMS
Looking for camp for your children between August 28th and September 1st? We are thrilled to introduce 5 AMAZING specialized programs for campers ages Nursery to Grade 7. Campers spend 1/2 day in specialty programming and 1/2 day in traditional camp activities.
Green Acres Swim Instruction Program (Grades SK-7)
Cedar Creek Riding (Grades 1-7)
‘Back to School’ (Nursery – Grade 1)
iCompute Multi-Media (Grades 1-7)
Learn-To-Bike (SK – Grade 2)
1-WEEK SPECIALTY CAMPS
Green Acres now offers over 25 one-week specialty camps in the areas of Performing Arts, Fine Arts, STEM and Outdoor Adventures. Campers completed grades 3-7 participate in their specialty camp in the morning, enjoy a recreational swim and then choose from a large selection of activities in the afternoon. Programs are interactive, challenging, fun and hands on.
GREEN ACRES INTRODUCES TOWEL SERVICE
Daily Towel Service is now included for all campers at no extra charge. Campers will be receiving a fresh towel for each swim. No need to load up your child’s backpack any longer!
Campers will learn to feel confident on a bike as they progress from training wheels to riding independently on a two-wheel bike. Our specially trained staff will teach riding and balancing skills through games and fun activities. Campers will ride twice a day, and receive both an instructional and recreational swim as well as participate in other Traditional Camp activities. Bikes and helmets will be provided.
This program is offered in weeks 7 & 8 as well as during our ‘End of Summer’ Week 9 program.
ONE FAMILY NIGHT FOR ALL – JULY 27 – 6:00-8:00 PM
This year we will be hosting one Fantantibulous Family Night! An opportunity for all July campers to introduce their parents to their counsellors, show them around camp and participate in many activities! Swim instructors will also be available. Campers starting July 31st can come and meet their counsellors before their first day of camp.
INTRODUCTORY E-MAIL FROM YOUR COUNSELLORS
Parents gave their feedback and we listened! Rather than playing telephone tag with your child’s counsellor, you will now be receiving an introductory email from them with tons of information that you need to know prior to the first day of camp. You will also receive a list of campers in the cabin (first names only) at this time. Attached to the email will be an “About My Camper” form that you can fill out with any important information about your son/daughter that you would like the counsellors to receive.
EXCITING NEWS FOR CAMPERS ENROLLED IN OPTIONAL INSTRUCTIONAL SWIM (All-Star, 1-Wk Specialty Camp, Cedar Creek only)
Campers enrolled in the optional instructional swim will now also get a recreational swim. You no longer need to choose between Instructional Swim and Recreational Swim as campers will get both!

Building good character is an important part of Camp Green Acres. We have been proud supporters of the SickKids Campership Program for many years and continue to do so. We want to help our campers understand the importance of giving back to the community. Therefore, every Tuesday, we encourage you to send your child with a toonie or other spare change which we will donate to the Ronald McDonald House on your behalf. Every unit will choose to fundraise in their own fun and special way.
THE GREEN ACRES TUCK SHOP IS NOW OPEN!
Campers completing grades 5 and older will now have the opportunity to purchase snacks/drinks from our Tuck Shop. All items cost between $1-$2 and will be available for purchase during lunchtime. Everything is peanut/nut free. Options include bagels, ice cream, chips, yogurt, bars and more!
