Getting to know each other!
At the start of every new school year, Toronto Prep School heads to camp where students, teachers and staff have fun and get to know each other. Camp provides us with the perfect opportunity for our new students to bond with our returning student body.
Camp gives our faculty the chance to get to know our students and for our students to appreciate the multi-faceted individuals who teach their classes. Along with the many outdoor athletic activities including archery, trapeze, football, soccer, basketball, ball hockey, tennis, golf, zip-lining, canoeing, fishing, swimming and ultimate frisbee, the students take part in valuable leadership exercises, survival training and cooperative exercises.
The students share living quarters, and at meal times, everyone eats together as a big family. Our students reconnect with familiar faces and make new and hopefully lasting friendships.
Camp also signals the kick-off of the TPS Games (our House competitions) with a spectacular night-time opening ceremony celebration.
Events such as the Egg Toss, the Smarties Pass, Capture the Flag, Biggest Burp, Best House Sign and Origin Legend, Cupcake Drop, Tug of War and a half-day Obstacle Course are some of the highlights of the House competitions contested at camp.
