Summer Camps

SUMMER 2019

Ages 5-13

Summer is for exploring a world of creative possibilities. Embracing collaboration and change, we believe that small actions make for big impact. A child's realization of self and their place in this world will always be fostered at Kid Kind.

KidKind L.I.T Program (ages 11-13)

Leadership + mentoring are key concepts to the formation of strong and cohesive teams + communities. KidKind offers the unique opportunity to benefit from all of our programming: creative arts exploration melded with community outreach, while receiving leadership mentoring and training from our main staff.

 
 
 

The KidKind Difference

5:1 Camper to Staff Ratio

We ensure a safe learning environment by implementing a manageable child to staff ratio (5:1) This allows our staff to provide ease of care along with detailed attention for every camper. We'll all be working as a team to make the most fun out of each day!

Qualified Educators and Arts Professionals

We employ OCT (Ontario College of Teachers) and Certified Arts Educators, who hold up to date First Aid Training and Police Check referencing. 

Goal-driven Programming

Course leaders will facilitate all activities within the values of Growth Mindset Principles (GMP) and Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). We cultivate your child’s attitude of gratitude, empathic awareness of others, while supporting their self esteem in a welcoming learning environment.

Engaged Kids

We invite professional artists within our community to share their talents and engage directly with our kids.

Runnymede Health Centre

The Intergenerational 
Experience was a highlight for both residents and campers.  After a successful PA Day visit, we returned over the March Break with some of our kind kids to assist with their Spring planting.

Feed It Forward

Chef Jagger Gordon invited our kind kids to Toronto's first "Pay What You Can" grocery store. Their educational outreach team exposed our kids to the importance of this new initiative.

Golden Gecko Coffee

More than just a coffee shop, Golden Gecko invited our kids to collect clothing donations for Wish & Give and Sistema Toronto. After donating their items, the kids enjoyed "Paying it Forward" by surprising patrons with free coffee.

Ve'ahavta

Small hands can do BIG work. Aprons on, our kids made 60 sandwiches for the Ve’ahavta Van, helping to feed the homeless on the streets of Toronto.  Ve’ahavta (meaning:  "and you shall love") is looking forward to working with our campers again this Summer.
