About True North Sports Camps

True North Sports Camps offers year-round sports programming for boys and girls ages 4 to 14 throughout mid-town Toronto. We offer baseball, flag football, basketball, soccer and multi-sport summer day camps as well as after-school and weekend programs during the fall, winter and spring. At True North, we believe that recreational sports are an important part of every child’s development and we make it our top priority to deliver a truly memorable experience.
