March Break is fast approaching, and if you’re wondering what to do with the kids, we’ve collected up a few of the coolest camps going. Whether it worms or circus or robots that your little people are into, there’s a camp for that.
There’s five days jam-packed with hands-on science and art exploration at Action Potential Lab’s Science + Art March Break Camp. Camp activities will cover subjects from 3D printing, screen printing, sculptural installations, food science and much, much more! They’ll also have visits from professional scientists and crafts people from all around Toronto. For Junior Kindergarten up to Grade 3.

The Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems has two really cool LEGO Robotics camps this March Break. I particularly like that they’ve broken out the 5-8 age group and designed a simpler set of projects for them. Working with pulleys, gears, motors, and sensors to create programs and build robots. The 9-17 age group works with the more powerful LEGO Mindstorms EV3 system, specifically designed for robot builders with no coding experience.

Have a monkey on your hands? Give them a week of proper parkour training – though it probably won’t curb their desire to jump and hang off every single obstacle they see. This camp is of kids aged 9 and up, and teaches kids the basics of parkour in an 10,000 square foot indoor/outdoor obstacle course.
100 Symes Rd, Toronto
Explore fossils, wiggly worms, pond scum, cooking with fresh herbs, dyeing silk with plants, and more with the March Break camp at the Toronto Botanical Gardens. This is great flexible full-day camp option for ages 6-10, where you can book for one or two days, or the full week. Discounts for members too.

YPT lets kids get really deep into their imaginary worlds, encouraging them to build an entire theatrical experience around their fantasies. These week-long camps include taking a performance of Goodnight Moon (or free theatre ticket, depending on which location you choose), and the chance to work with proper theatre people and put on a show on a real stage.
165 Front Street East, Toronto & 36 Greenfield Ave, North York
If your little person has been transfixed by Cirque du Soleil, enrol them in circus camp for March break. TSCA’s camp program is open to kids five years and older at varied levels of ability. Students spend an active, fun-filled week learning acrobatics, silks, hoop, flying trapeze and more in a stimulating, non-competitive environment.
