Summer Fun for children at Toronto Athletic Camp

My children have been part of Toronto Athletic Camp (TAC) for a few years now, and they have loved their enriching positive summer camp experiences! TAC has seven convenient locations in the GTA, check their website for details on the programs offered at each of the locations. 
Camps for children 3.5 to 16 years
Campers age 3.5 and 4 to 5 years will get the opportunity to experience different sports at the Adventure Camp. Campers 6 to 12 years can choose the full day option with two sports or half day with one sport for the week. They also have leadership in training for teens 13 to 16 years. Since the camp groups are set up with children in similar age groups, children will be able to make friends quickly and connect. As a parent, I like that TAC ensures to have a low coach to student ratio that lets campers get the attention they need to develop skills. 
STEM themed programs
They offer STEM themed programs partnering with LSA (Lifetime Skills Academy). These hands-on learning STEM themed programs such as LEGO Robotics, Creativity Unleashed, and others are designed to exercise children's mind and creativity. More about these programs and its benefits on this post (coming soon). 
Lunch and snacks
The fees for full day one-week camp include lunch and two snacks, where campers are provided with a hot lunch prepared in a peanut free environment. They also meet different dietary restrictions. This is convenient for parents too since we don't need to plan lunches for the summer!
Overnight camping in the city
This summer TAC is offering overnight summer camp. This is a great opportunity for our children to have the experience of overnight camp without leaving the city. The camp is aimed for children 9 to 14 years. 

Children will get the opportunity to spend their nights at Tyndale campus dorms, learn and play soccer and basketball at Glendon campus with trained experts to reach their complete potential. Boys and girls will be in separate rooms and 2 campers will share a room.  
Campers will be treated like they are part of a professional sports team, as they will be getting to go on bus excursions, be part of game nights and play ping pong, strategic gaming where they will get to watch footage of their sports, enjoy video games tournaments, and end the week with a tournament. All campers will get feedback and performance tracks. They will also get an opportunity to either go to a sporting game or a training facility during the week. 

The campers will be provided with nutritious high quality meals. The overnight camp opportunity will start on Sunday afternoon and end on Saturday morning after breakfast. Overnight camps are a fabulous way for children to gain independence, learn to develop social skills, and an opportunity to practice their leadership skills, take initiative and make friends. 
It is best to plan the summer days early, and register our children soon to these exciting experiences that will help them gain valuable lifetime skills.
