Del Active Sports Camp was founded in 2009 here on the spectacular grounds of De Le Salle College ‘Oaklands’. Our first year was such an incredible experience for all involved. Our staff were ready and eager, but our enrollment was low. The kids who came seemed to love what we had planned and even with a few quiet weeks, we considered the feedback and joy of our campers a huge success. Summer after summer, we began to grow as word got around about our camp. Campers were returning for additional years and were bringing their friends with them, excited for a new summer.
We constantly attribute our success to the dedicated staff we hire year after year. The one thing we have always firmly believed in is hiring staff who are here for our campers, dedicated to the programming and fulfilment of spreading summer joy as their top priorities. Our team here has always consisted of people we’re so proud of and can guarantee this will continue in the years to come! Our ever-growing and energetic staff contribute new games and creative initiatives every day to make sure our campers are enjoying their time with us.

By seeing our transformation and growth as a camp from year to year, we truly believe that we have embedded ourselves into the downtown community and become a safe, summer haven for many Toronto families. It brings us joy to welcome back “veteran” families as well as adding new members to our community each year. Although we are always sad to see our summers come to a close, we are looking forward to the 2019 summer as we are sure it will be the best one yet!
Del Active Sports Camp is proud of the facilities we have on our campus that help us to bring our programming to life. The addition of our FIFA approved turf field a couple years back has provided our campers with the space to play all their favourite open-field games. Our sport court is a camper favourite, not only do we use it as an area to play games in the mornings and afternoons for drop-off and pick-up, but it’s seen some of the most intense basketball, soccer, wiffleball, and tchoukball games in all our years. The school’s gymnasium is another great area used for many different activities. We use it throughout the day and it’s a great way to continue to stay active, but also get out of the sun for periods at a time. Our upper field is perfect for our Del Games, and with lots of tree coverage, it’s a cool place to find shade on those scorching summer days. We encourage families to come check out our gorgeous campus and all the facilities we make use of each summer. If you have any questions, please just let us know!
In addition to our fun activities and traditions, our facility has recently renovated its field, creating a brand new turf pitch that adds more space for our campers to participate. As well as our field, we have an outdoor sports court equipped with basketball nets and court lines where games such as basketball, ball hockey and tchoukball can be played. Our indoor gym is operational with six basketball nets and removable volleyball and badminton nets. In the gym, we are able to play games such as badminton, cricket, and dodgeball. Finally, our hockey campers get full access to the arena that includes NHL approved ice, pucks and nets.
