This camp is designed to build the following character traits:

  • Independence: Leaders in Training are encouraged to show self-initiative and make decisions based on their own intuition. Through the guidance of our counselors, LIT's learn how to be independent and resourceful leaders.
  • Interpersonal skills: Throughout the program, Leaders in Training develop strong relationships with the campers in their group. LIT's learn how to successfully resolve conflict, and communicate effectively to lead their campers.

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority's Leaders in Training (LIT) Program at Tommy Thompson Park provides youth ages 14-16 with an opportunity to develop leadership skills in a beautiful wilderness day camp setting - all while having fun! In this one-week program, LITs will spend their days in a leadership role, helping to develop and conduct Nature Camp activities for younger campers. Mentorship and guided training activities will provide LITs with the skills that they need to excel in a leadership capacity.

Spaces are limited, ensuring that participants will have meaningful growth experiences through the program.

July 4-7 | July 24-28: WILDLIFE ADVENTURES

Wildlife thrives in Toronto’s Urban Wilderness! During our Wildlife Adventures camps, campers will adventure through forests, wetlands, and meadows to learn about the flora and fauna (plants and animals) of Tommy Thompson Park. We’ll take a closer look at these residents, learn how to identify them, and have fun gaining a new appreciation for their incredible diversity. 

July 10-14 | July 31- Aug 4: SCIENCE ON THE SPIT

There’s always more to discover about the natural world! During our Science on The Spit camps, campers will use microscopes, magnifying glasses, and more to take the first steps into scientific discovery. We’ll take part in science experiments, collect specimens, and discover Tommy Thompson Park from a new perspective – all while getting outside, playing games, and having fun! To attend, all you need is a love of nature. 

July 17-21 | Aug 21-25: ART IN NATURE

Let’s get creative! During our Art in Nature camps, we will draw inspiration from the natural world of Tommy Thompson Park. Campers will design their own ephemeral art, practice photography skills, create sustainable art using recycled materials, and more! We’ll hone our artistic skills and learn how to view the natural world from new perspectives. 

Aug 14-18 | Aug 28- Sept 1: BIRDS IN THE CITY

Tommy Thompson Park is a birding hotspot! During our Birds in the City camps, campers will discover the bird species that call The Spit home. We’ll explore for birds, learn about bird calls, and visit the Bird Research Station to see birds up close before they’re released. Campers will be provided with binoculars and field guides to use during the camp week.
