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. Many group events take place on a daily basis affording our student body with the structure to connect and interact with their peers. Along with the many outdoor athletic activities including archery, trapeze, football, soccer, basketball, ball hockey, tennis, gold, 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 time we eat together as a family. The camp signals the kick off to our House Competitions highlighted by a spectacular night-time opening ceremony to the TPS Games. Our students reconnect with some familiar faces, and definitely make new and hopefully lasting friendships.
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.
