West End Toronto PA Day Camps – Fall 2017

Classes and ProgramsCamps

The kids just got back to school, and already their first PA day is coming up. Don’t scramble to find a babysitter or worry about hearing them moan about being bored. And don’t let them lose the momentum of learning. PA day camps exist for every interest.

Here are a diverse assortment of PA day camps west of Yonge Street. Note that most camps offer extended care before and/or after camp hours, for an additional fee.

TDSB and TCDSB PA days for fall are October 6, November 17, and December 1.
