In partnership with Fort York, on August 22 and 23, we'll be inviting a limited number of families to join our Homegrown Park Rangers for a night of camping on the grounds of the national historic site, located in the heart of downtown Toronto. Scroll to the bottom of the page for photos of last year's event!

The cost for the Homegrown Jamboree is $30 per adult and $15 per child, which includes meals, kid-friendly activities, campfires, photo booths, ghost walks and more. Some financial assistance is available to those that need it. Please contact Megan at if you're interested in applying.

Each family will need to provide their own tents and sleeping bags. Equipment can be rented from MEC, or better yet, borrowed from campers in your networks.

If your family is interested in participating in the Homegrown Jamboree, please fill out our simple registration form below. As the Homegrown Jamboree will have a limited number of families, we encourage you to apply early — and be sure to let us know why you think your troop of happy campers is keen to join us! Registration closes July 24.
