Our first week of camp has been completed! Throughout active leadership week, our campers engaged in various mindful and team building exercises, ameliorating their communication and interpersonal skills. This helped every camper become comfortable with their new environments and with each other.
We started the week off with a Scavenger Hunt in which our campers learned to work together in order to find many hidden objects around the school.
The kids had a blast swimming at the Centennial Recreation Centre pool. We then finished off this summery week with some wet fun, playing at the water park.
Even though this week has come to an end, we can look forward to next week! Campers will be taking part in several creative activities as well as going on a trip to SkyZone!
See you next week campers!

Miracles in The Bible Week was a success! On Monday Camp EDIFY campers and counsellors showcased their amazing talents on our very own edition of Camp EDIFY’s Got Talent. Andre and Miguel showcased their amazing Basketball tricks. While Haniah and Maleah performed a remarkable dance routine. This week, campers were given the opportunity to talk about the miracles they have experienced in their own lives. In addition, counsellors gave all the campers insight to the remarkable miracle Jesus performed. Jesus only had 5 loaves of Bread and two Fish yet, he was still able to feed thousands of people!
This weeks Trip Thursday was at Canada’s Wonderland!!! Campers enjoyed the rides and huge water park that Wonderland had to offer. At the end of our visit campers and counsellors enjoyed funnel cakes and ice cream. Overall, our trip to Canada’s Wonderland was such a great day of fellowship and bonding.

This week’s Trip Thursday was at Ever Green Brick Works, where campers discovered new ways to preserve energy and protect the planet! Furthermore, our lovely campers were given the opportunity to engage in a Scavenger Hunt, during the hunt they discovered historic buildings at the facility, and also enjoy the sunshine.

All the campers enjoyed Around the World week! During the first day of Around the World, campers were given the opportunity to share what their ethnicity is, and what languages they speak at home. In addition, campers learned how to count in Spanish and various other languages.
On Tuesday, campers completed a journal entry about where they would like to travel in the future. For instance, Henry-Lev wrote that he would love to fly to the Dominican Republic with his family!
For those of you who have been wondering where Camp EDIFY went for Trip Thursday, I’d like to announce that we went to….. The Royal Ontario Museum!! While at the ROM, camp EDIFY learned about historic events, and viewed the endless number of artifacts on display.
A lot of our campers enjoyed the Everyday Egyptians Exhibit which presented some objects the Egyptians left behind. Also, Camp EDIFY got a glimpse into the daily lives of the ordinary Egyptians.
Please stay tuned for the upcoming blogs that will focus on Sports Week!!

Animal Week has finally arrived! Jaguars, Polar Bears, and Elephants are only a few of the many endangered animals we used in a game of animal charades! All the campers did a great job using only gestures to demonstrate which animals they were portraying during the game. Our awesome campers also created animal mask during Arts & Crafts, and then made a skit which incorporated the mask they created. Camp Edify is excited for the many upcoming animal activities scheduled for the rest of the week which also include our trip to the Toronto Zoo on Thursday!

Creation Week was a success! Campers had the opportunity to create their own masterpieces using only their hands and a sheet of paper. Evan and Kemmell created a boat and airplane in less than five minutes!! In addition, our lovely counsellors created a skit which gave campers insight on how God created Heaven and Earth. Since this week was tremendously hot, campers cooled off at the Pan AM Pool. Finally, campers got to blow off some steam at Parkway Bowl.
Many of the kids got an endless amount of strikes in just one shot! This week was fun-filled, and we cannot wait until Animal Week! During Animal Week, campers will get the wild life experience at the Toronto Zoo. Who else is super excited for Animal week?
