Crestwood Valley Day Camp is recommended as the Number One Day Camp by many Toronto families. Crestwood provides a strong foundation in camping within a nurturing and dynamic environment for children between the ages of 4 and 15 years old.
Parents are encouraged to talk with any member of Crestwood’s Team of Directors to discuss the camp programme, their child’s particular needs and their child’s progress throughout the summer. Crestwood creates a positive experience for young and first time campers. For the eldest campers, Crestwood develops their leadership skills and confidence through the many performances and special events in which they participate. Exciting camp options such as sports, nature, performing arts and aquatic activities enhance the programming and offer greater challenges and choice possibilities.
