How do we top Summer 2016? We are thrilled and gratified by how many happy campers and parents have asked us this question. Incredibly positive feedback and constructive suggestions will help us to make what was a wonderful, memorable and enriching Summer 2016 even better in Summer 2017! Camp spirit..concern for each individual…professionally run and exciting specialties, programs and activities…top-notch equipment and supplies…state-of-the-art facilities at our Leo Baeck Day School (South Campus) Campsite and beautiful adjacent Cedarvale Park…central, accessible location near Bathurst & Eglinton…great transportation options…committed and caring staff…strong and effective specialty/program affiliations with experienced, expert and reputable individuals and organizations…singsongs, dress-up days and other awesome theme programs and special guests…overnight camp flavour is a day camp setting…supportive parents…and, of course, happy campers! This is truly the formula for an enjoyable and memorable summer for campers, staff, parents…and three pretty thrilled camp directors! Unbelievably, Summer 2017 is not that far away and we are already hiring, planning, programming and getting busy! Much appreciated feedback from Zodiac families about our program and helpful and constructive suggestions about transportation, activities, parent communication and so much more have been indispensable in shaping the 2017 program and services. Leo Baeck’s awesome indoor and outdoor facilities allow for unlimited opportunities for fun and excitement for Zodiac programs! In the end, though, it’s the people – teachers, counsellors and, of course, campers – who make Zodiac such a special place.
We are also very excited about Zodiac’s other very special place…Camp Tamarack, our beautiful overnight camp on a private lake in the heart of Muskoka. We introduced many happy Zodiac campers to Tamarack in Summer 2016 and look forward to exposing many more Zodiac campers to Tamarack’s great facilities, multi-faceted program, fun and spirit in Summer 2017. Our three-day, two-night Taste of Tamarack weekends provide for 6 to 11 year old campers with an amazing and non-threatening introductory overnight camp experience. Many Zodiac campers, in fact, are planning to be part of Tamarack’s 10, 11, or 14 day introductory (or even longer) sessions, while still enjoying sessions at Zodiac Day Camp. Check out www.camptamarack.info for more details! Please also check out our new City/Country Combo Discount which provides a substantial discount simply by registering your camper(s) for awesome session (s) at both Zodiac Day Camp and Camp Tamarack.
Sounds like a pretty awesome Summer 2017. We look forward to your family being an integral part of it!

Zodiac Day Camp Directors
Since 1978, Zodiac Swim School has earned the confidence of thousands of families in building swimmers’s skills, self-confidence and love of the water. The name Zodiac not only stands for quality and caring in aquatics, but also in the camping field. Since 1998 (with Summer 2017 representing our camp’s 20th anniversary!). Directors Ellen and Rick Howard and Danny Goodman have taken Zodiac’s winning formula in the swimming, recreation and camp contexts to make Zodiac Day Camp the logical destination and best alternative for your child’s summer experience. Zodiac Day Camp has a unique, challenging and fun premise that is simple and obvious in its appeal to kids and parents. We want to provide our 2.5 to 15.5 year old campers with a fun, exciting, memorable, age-appropriate, unparalleled summer camp experience. We offer a uniquely fun, challenging, safe and enjoyable environment in which we strive not only to expose the camper to an amazing blend of experiences and to develop skills, but also to build each child’s self-esteem, confidence and trust. Each camper is dealt with as an individual with unique needs and goals./span>
