The outdoors can feel far away when you live in a city, but it doesn't have to. There are adventures waiting just around the corner. ActiveDays is creating a community of people with a passion to get outdoors, explore, learn and have fun together. Our philosophy is simple; to disconnect from city life, for a moment, and get outside. We provide programming to get you to discover new places, build skills and meet like-minded people in a collaborative environment.
ActiveDays encourages you to try something new, expand your comfort zone and/or engage in something you already love. We welcome people of all ages and experiences. We will be exploring, hiking, paddleboarding, canoeing and climbing through the parks of Ontario. We are creating a community of outdoor enthusiasts who are curious to explore and thankful for the natural world that exists around them.
Come with us and share your passion for the natural world.
Below are some of the trips we planned this year! Do you have an idea for an outing you'd like to see? Suggest a trip!

MEET ACTIVEDAYS COORDINATOR: WALKER KITCHENS
Walker Kitchens is ActiveDays Program Coordinator, and he loves learning outdoors. Childhood summers spent outside in Ontario and Newfoundland fostered a deep curiosity within him that continues to grow. This desire to explore led him abroad. After two years of working as a facilitator in Cambodia and India, Walker has returned home to Toronto keen to venture back into the Canadian environment.
Knowledge sharing and community building energize him and he is excited to help build a community that is eager to share ideas, stories and skills in a collaborative way. When you see him, ask him to tell you a story and make sure to share with him a passion, skill or story of your own.
