Black Creek Pioneer Village offers a safe environment staffed by caring people who are experienced in delivering group programs for young children.
Pioneer Day Camps - Unleashing the pioneer spirit in every child
Black Creek Pioneer Village Day Camp is a summer camp with a difference! Children ages 8 to 12 will go behind the scenes of Toronto’s favourite living history site to experience life as it was in the 1860s.
During the one-week program, campers will dress, work and play pioneer style! They will cook on a wood stove, make unique arts and crafts, take part in farmyard chores, take natural history hikes and participate in old-fashioned fun and games.
For kids ages 8 to 12, one-week sessions
