About our March Break Camp

Our March Break Camp is a week-long camp program focusing on exploring the winter forest and ravines around Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto’s Lower Don Valley. Campers will embrace the winter landscape like no other camp in the city!

 

Our campers will spend time tracking animals through the snow, learning about winter outdoor survival strategies from the local residents of the valley, building fires, shelters and forts, splashing in muddy puddles, crafting with ice and snow, reciting stories and singing songs about the signs of spring around our campfire at Evergreen Brick Works.

 

Each March Break Camp day will bring a renewed sense of wonder, respect, and admiration that will be fostered throughout the camp day by our highly skilled and passionate outdoor educators as our camp is designed to provide age-appropriate experiences for all campers to have a fun, safe and wild time.

 

Join us in the valley as we venture out to explore the wilder side of Toronto!

Do you provide inclusion support for campers attending camp?

Our priority is to provide a positive camp experience for all our campers. Our camp staff are dedicated to creating an inclusive, safe and educational program for all campers. If your camper has special needs or requires accommodation at Evergreen Day Camps, please email camp@evergreen.ca to ensure our Camp Inclusion Team can give your camper the best experience possible.

 

The Program Manager will discuss supports available and our team will reach out with the best available options and suggestions. We recognize that we cannot meet every camper’s needs, however, we will do our best to prioritize a safe and successful camp for all involved.

Do you have a Lost & Found office?

Our Camp Office is our lost and found! The Camp Office is in the alleyway leading up to the Children’s Garden. Please write to camp@evergreen.ca if your camper has forgotten or lost any item at Evergreen Brick Works. See here for our visitor map.

 

Please note, we strongly encourage campers to avoid bringing items deemed as valuable to camp. Evergreen is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Is there an extended after care program?

Yes, we are pleased to offer an extended aftercare program from 3:30-5:30pm for an additional fee of $100/week for weekly camps or $20/day for day camps. Pro-rated options are available. You can add extended after care through our online registration portal, Camp Brain, any time prior to your registered camp session.

 

If you’d like to add extended after care to your camp registration, we strongly encourage you to contact our camp office at least 14 days in advance to your registered camp session. This gives our camp team enough time to accommodate for any late adjustments or changes to our camp planning.

Does camps and clubs run in inclement weather?

We’re outside as much as possible! That being said, in the 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 having 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.

Can my camper be in the same group as their friend?

Building a fun, friendly and accepting group of campers is a key goal for Day Camps, and to ensure this, we accept friend requests only if the campers are in the same age group and camp session. We limit the requests to one per camper. Friend requests that are not in the same age group and camp session will not be considered.

 

If you’d like to share a friend request, we strongly encourage you to contact our camp office at least 14 days in advance to your registered camp session. This gives our camp team enough time to accommodate for any late adjustments or changes to our camp planning. Please include your camper’s full name and 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.
