Get out the Calendar


The first step when it comes to planning a fun and successful summer is to keep and update an agenda. Whether you have a family calendar, personal schedule or daily planner, it is important to keep record of everyone’s activities in one place to prevent double booking and over scheduling. Write down any events currently scheduled including doctor’s appointments, summer camps, family vacations, sports schedules and national holidays. If you are looking for summer camp options for kids, check out the City of Toronto website for a full list of day camps available in Toronto. The most important aspect of successful planning is to keep a detailed plan of events and possible openings so you can make the most of your precious summer time.


Get Input


Once you have filled you calendar with pre-existing dates and commitments, it’s time to gather some input from friends and family for summer ideas! Ask your family what they would like to do this summer. This might include play dates, weekend trips, cottage visits, summer festivals and more. Write these ideas down and look at possible dates that might work. Once these dates are confirmed make sure to add them to the calendar. For a comprehensive list of popular summer activities and events in the city of Toronto check out the following list from ‘’, which includes a list of beautiful parks, museums, shopping and more.


Plan Vacations Carefully


If you are planning on going away for vacation this summer it is important to hold a ‘pre-meeting’ for any trips planned with others. Make sure that everyone is on the same page about things like budget, accommodations, dietary restrictions, etc. This simple step will go a long way in ensuring an effortless and easy summer vacation.


Try Something New


The summer is the perfect opportunity for you to try something new and get out of your comfort zone! Facing a fear or learning something new will make you feel great, boost your confidence and fill your calendar with adventure. If you are a thrill seeker who loves heights, try the CN Tower’s EdgeWalk, an exciting activity that involves walking on and around the roof of the CN Tower’s main pod, 356 meters up in the air. The CN Tower is located less than a 20-minute transit ride from Greenrock’s Village Green community.
