NOTICE: Vandalism at Bolton Camp
In mid-March, during construction of the accessible Baseball Diamond, a series of vandalism incidents took place at Bolton Camp, causing extensive damage to a number of the important historical buildings in the upper camp area.
Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is proud of the significant amount of work done by the many dedicated youth, volunteers and community partners that have led the charge to reimagine Bolton Camp as a place for everyone to enjoy. While these destructive incidents are disappointing, we recognize that they do not reflect the community as a whole, and remain steadfast in our commitment to see this worthwhile project to fruition, bringing the vision for a new Bolton Camp to reality and working to restore the damage done by the vandals.
Over the coming months, we plan to continue to engage the community in programs and activities at Bolton Camp that take steps towards achieving the vision for an open and inclusive Bolton Camp, while at the same time working with the OPP and local officials to identify the individuals responsible for these acts of senseless vandalism.
If you have any information about the recent acts of vandalism, please contact the Ontario Provincial Police Caledon Detachment at 905-584-2241.
Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) purchased the Bolton Camp property in 2011 and has developed a concept plan for re-purposing the site from its previous use as an overnight summer camp to a community cultural hub.
The new Bolton Camp will be a destination where people come together to learn, play, create, explore, and share in unique experiences.
A Community Centre Turned Inside Out
Imagine a community hub where a dynamic mix of arts and culture programs, health and wellness activities, start-ups and businesses share the same space.
Located 40 km north of Toronto, in Caledon, Ontario, the Bolton Camp site boasts 254 acres of greenspace, and a collection of 65 historic buildings.
Set against this natural backdrop, the new Bolton Camp will be designed as an adaptable space for a wide range of interests and events that encourage creativity, innovation and learning. This multi-faceted space will host pop-up retail shops, yoga classes, hike and bike camps, inter-generational cooking classes, outdoor festivals, maker spaces and more
