While the focus is always on fun, what makes our camp unique is the exceptional level of skill training offered by our expert coaches who bring both a wealth of experience and a high degree of expertise to their chosen programs. Alongside each expert coach will be qualified counselors who have been carefully selected based on their knowledge of and experience in their respective program, as well as their enthusiasm for working with kids.

Not only do campers receive three to four hours of skill training each day, they have an opportunity to explore CDS’ beautiful 100-acre campus. With a temperature-controlled sports dome, three full-sized gyms, four tennis courts and ten playing fields, even a rainy day is an active day at CDS Summer Camp! Daily lunch is provided.

Summer Camp FAQ

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • Where is CDS Summer Camp located?

    We are located in King City at Dufferin St. and King Road. During the camp season, we use the entrance of the Junior School, clearly distinguished by the coaches welcoming campers each morning.
  • What are camp hours?

    9:00 am - 4:00 pm
  • Are lunch and snacks provided?

    Yes! You will be sent a lunch menu with your welcome package at the beginning of June, as well as on the Monday your child begins camp. We are a nut-free camp and do not allow outside lunches or snacks within our dining hall. When registering, it is crucial to make note of any dietary restrictions or allergies so our Dining Hall staff are made fully aware.
  • I am trying to register but no sessions are showing up for my son/daughter?

    Please ensure that your camper's age is entered correctly in the system. Camps will be available based on their age. Also ensure that they are entered as a “camper” not as a “parent”.
  • If my child successfully completed LIT camp, have they completed their community service hours?

    No. Once they have completed LIT camp, they are welcome to apply to volunteer at the camp. If they successfully complete the application process, they will receive 20 hours for a full week of volunteering.
  • Is busing available?

    Sorry, not at this time.
  • Do the campers go swimming?

    Yes! We go swimming on Thursday afternoons at Oak Ridges Community Center. We do not have a pool on campus. Campers under the age of 6 will remain on campus at this time with staff, playing a variety of interactive games.
  • What is the refund policy?

    You are eligible for a refund of fees, less a $100 administration fee if a child withdraws up to 30 days prior to the start of the camp session. Withdrawal requests for medical reasons must be accompanied by a doctor’s note. Refunds are not available if a child is absent.
