Planting Station

Our Spiral Garden is a one of a kind destination dedicated to hosting hundreds of kids throughout the summer. It is an integrated outdoor, art, garden, and play program that welcomes participants with and without special needs together to foster an inclusive community. Kids grow their imagination, confidence, and inspiration for a future of endless possibilities. Come experience what it's like to go to Spiral Garden camp and find your spark! 

Pumpkin Patch & Carving Stations

Our Music and Arts programs are so important to the kids at Holland Bloorview. Whether it would be part of therapy or just for fun, we always love to get into the spirit! Hosting this block party close to Halloween has us thinking pumpkins are a perfect patch. Pumpkins will also be on sale, with proceeds going to Holland Bloorview!
