What is a typical day at knox camps?
Our days are full and fast-paced, with time for kids to choose the activities that they enjoy most! We begin with group games, songs, stories, and skits. After lunch, we have instructional time (learning a new skill like drama or floor hockey, where you pick the same thing to work on all week) and choice activities (which change every day - everything from baking to balloon animals to bowling in Knox's very own bowling alley!). We end the day with more games, team time, and snacks.
Do you offer financial assistance?
We know that even with our low costs, camp is out of reach for some families! Thanks to generous friends of Knox Camps, we have bursaries available. These are given on basis of need, are given in various amounts, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Bursary applications open in November 2018.
What are the trip days?
Every Thursday, we head out from Knox Church for a day of fun in the city. Sometimes, we go to nearby attractions like High Park, the ROM, or the Aquarium. Other times, we take a transit ride to Ashbridges Bay, the Toronto Islands, or other great parks. Whatever we do, it is an adventure!
Who leads knox camps?
Our leaders are caring, enthusiastic teens and young adults. Many have been campers at Knox Camps in the past! They are a diverse group of Christians with an interest in serving the community. Your child will be in a group (called a "squad") with the same leader all week, so they'll have a chance to get to know them and the kids in their group really well.
