Exploring the wild wonders of Toronto’s lush ravine systems in the heart of the Lower Don Valley.
Build friendships and environmental passion through outdoor play.
Our Adventure Camp activities will invite campers to develop new relationships with their peers and the natural world as they spend each day building with natural materials, exploring habitats and trails, identifying plants and animals, sharing stories and ideas, crafting with clay and natural materials or maybe even observing the resident beaver in the quarry!
Our camp programs are designed to inspire a new generation of environmental caretakers, as we strongly believe in the power of outdoor play and how that activates the body and the mind.
Evergreen’s Adventure Camp offers both one and two-week camp programs, focusing on exploring and connecting with nature through inquiry-based outdoor play and learning. Campers aged 6–14 will get up close and personal with nature through new discoveries and adventures in the urban wild.
With more nature than any other city of its size in North America, Toronto offers young naturalists and campers alike an ideal and unique opportunity to uncover the wilderness that lies within our ravine systems in the Lower Don Valley!

Yes, campers who wish to stay back or are not yet ready for hitting the bike routes will be paired with our experienced bike camp counsellor who runs our Learn-to-Ride program. In this program, campers will gain confidence in pedaling, balancing and bike knowledge.
If your camper is not comfortable participating in our Learn-to-Ride program, they are welcome to partake in other activities such as arts and crafts or join another group
If a camper falls ill while at camp, they will be placed in an isolated area with camp staff. Caregivers will be contacted to pick up their camper immediately. The caregiver will be asked to take the child to a COVID-19 assessment center to be tested. If a negative result is confirmed the child will be allowed to return to camp once symptoms have resolved for 24 hours.
Please reach out to email@example.com to notify the camp team should your camper be staying home due to feeling ill or sick.

We’re outside as much as possible! We love the outdoors and spend as much time outside as we can. That being said, in case of extreme or unexpected weather such as thunder, lightning, hail, extreme heat/cold, we will be moving camp programming in a sheltered space or indoors for campers to continue to have fun while staying safe.
In case of flooding at Evergreen Brick Works, or other unforeseen circumstances, Evergreen has the right to cancel camp programming as weather conditions may change unexpectedly, cancellation may be issued after camp programming has started.
Building a fun, friendly and accepting group of campers is a key goal for Evergreen Adventure Camp, and we encourage all campers to build new friendships while at Evergreen Brick Works.
To ensure this, we accept friend requests only if the campers are in the same grade program and session, and we limit the requests to one per camper. Friend requests that are not in the same grade and session group will not be considered.
Please write to email@example.com with your friend request with your camper’s information as early as possible including their full name, registered camp session along with their friend’s camp information. We will try our best to accommodate, however, know that we are unable to guarantee friend requests.
Evergreen’s Day Camp programs offer registered camp families a free parking window in all parking lots at Evergreen Brick Works from 8:45am-9:15am and 3:30pm-3:45pm for each day of camp.
