Daily Lunch and Snacks

Transportation

Our camp is conveniently located at Havergal College, on the corner of Avenue Road and Lawrence Ave. We are fortunate to have a central location perfect for driving, carpooling, walking or biking!

At The Ivy, we have the privilege of beginning and ending each day connecting directly with caregivers and staying true to our core belief of engaging caregivers as partners.

We are committed to a hand to hand arrival and departure experience, as it is one which provides for a close connection with our families and camp community. We strongly believe this positively helps integrate and transitions children into camp life; ultimately, enhancing their summer-camp journey.


For your convenience and to offer the same holistic opportunity for connection, we offer an optional before camp program (7:30am – 8:30am) and/or after camp program (4:00pm – 6:00pm). Both optional programs include an early morning and afternoon snack, and a continuation of our high quality activities!

Our before and after camp program is perfect for parents who require flexibility in their day!
