About Our Camp
At Zodiac Day Camp, our goal was (and still is) to provide campers with a unique, nurturing specialized program. Our camp was the first to offer shorter (now, one week) sessions. Also, while younger campers in our Adult & Tot, Zodiac Day Care, Pre Kid-Vantage and Kid-Vantage programs enjoy a multi-faceted, variety-based, age-appropriate program, older campers get to experience our unique specialty program. Each session, 7 to 12 year old campers choose a focus area (from among our sports, arts, S.T.E.A.M. and Zodiaction streams), while still getting exposure to a wide variety of other activities. Zodiac Swim School’s instructional swim program is a centerpiece of every camper’s day. Our renowned leadership program for 13-15 year olds provides a terrific training experience and transition to becoming a Zodiac staff member!
Many Zodiac families also enjoy an amazing experience at our beautiful Muskoka overnight camp, Camp Tamarack. With a large number of children participating in our day trip and weekend introductory experiences at Tamarack, and others becoming full-fledged campers, we are excited to have another unparalleled experience that Zodiac families can enjoy for years to come.
Camps, swimming and so much more…we love helping children (and adults!) develop skills, build self-confidence and make memories to last a lifetime. The confidence that Zodiac families demonstrate in us is never taken for granted and is appreciated more than it is possible to express. We are parents of three amazing kids and plan for, care about and treat other people’s children as an extended part of our family. Some people wonder how we do what we do, how we sleep at night, etc. The answer is that we work and plan and hire an amazing team of people who make our dream a reality. This includes our multi-talented and amazing co-Director, Danny Goodman, as well as the rest of our leadership team. We truly love what we do.
