The Great Camp Adventure Walk

Event Day Planning

Getting ready for your great adventure?


The 5th annual Canaccord Genuity Great Camp Adventure Walk is taking place at Fort York on Saturday, September 23, 2017.


The adventure starts and ends at historic Fort York in downtown Toronto, at 100 Garrison Road.

The Walk

The walk is a challenge-by-choice adventure, which means that you can challenge yourself to walk 5 km, 10 km, 15 km or 20 km. However far you decide to walk, our Camp Crew will be there to cheer with you and celebrate your accomplishment. Once you return to Main Camp, you will receive your official Finisher Badge and find many more family-friendly activities to enjoy.


New to the 2017 walk: Carrot Rewards!

We are excited to announce that, in partnership with Canadian wellness app Carrot Rewards, we are bringing a new experience to this year's Canaccord Genuity Great Camp Adventure Walk.

Together, we will be enhancing your event-day experience with fun Toronto trail tips and by giving you opportunities to earn your favourite rewards points, like Aeroplan Miles or SCENE points, at various campsites along the route.

The Campsites

Campsites are found every 2.5 km along the walk, each with its own unique theme and activities to offer:

  • Great games to play
  • New skills to learn
  • New badges to collect
  • New friends to make

The Camp Crew will be waiting on-site to keep the good times rolling, and if you get hungry, need a bandage or if nature calls (or all three), we have you covered. Nutritious food, bathrooms and medical supplies are all on hand.
