Surf the Greats and MEC Outdoor Nation invite you for an unforgettable day camp in TO Surf City. Join us for an afternoon of fun in the sun in one of the most well kept secret islands in Toronto. With our stunning city skyline in the background, we are going to disconnect from our urban lives and connect with our natural environment in a truly meaningful way.

The adventure starts with a boat ride to the island, leaving the hustle and bustle of the city behind. We will begin the day by giving back to our environment by rolling up our sleeves and doing a beach clean-up. After the clean up, you can play some Frisbee, take a Standup Paddleboarding lesson, have a picnic or just chill with your old and new friends on the beach.

Towards the end of the day, we will have an unplugged music jam lead by ‘Ryan Bonner’ from local surf band ‘Ry & Jess’. If you play any portable music instrument, bring it with you and join in on this sing along session by the lake!

The adventure will end with an energizing and restorative Tidal Flow yoga session to make you come back to the city feeling like a million bucks! This Vinyasa flow was developed by Surf the Greats mixing traditional postures from Hatha Yoga, dynamic movements from Ginástica Natural, conditioning movements from surfing, as well as breathing and meditation techniques.
