Day Camp

237 youth registered for our day camp program, designed for students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. Daily activities include arts, crafts, sports, swimming, field trips, drama, dance and creative writing. Many of the students in our largest cohort have been campers in our program for several years.

Leaders in Training

19 grade 7 & 8 students participated in our L.I.T. group, a comprehensive 6-week program where students practice and develop leadership skills. Each morning began with a group exercise class, followed by goal setting and planning activities. Most of our L.I.T. students are former day camp participants.

Our L.I.T. group also organized the camp Talent Show and Sports Day.


25 high school students volunteered over 1,000 hours collectively throughout the summer. The students supported daily summer camp activities and helped to maintain a safe and clean atmosphere for campers.




Camp GTA has had a positive impact on this community over the past 7 years. We are proud that many of our senior staff and counselors are former campers and leadership students. The community has received our program positively, and I strongly believe we still have the support of the parent community although the administration change at the school has been a challenge.
