Description: Mississauga Day Camps were originally developed in the 1950s under the care of former Recreation Director, Jerry Love. In the late 50s to early 60s the camp was officially named Camp Totoredeca (for TOronto TOwnship REcreational DAy CAmp), and was originally located in the Dundas/Mississauga Road area, now known as Erindale Park. Camp Totoredeca was located in six different areas until arrangements were made with the Credit Valley Conservation Authority. In 1962, the camp was moved to the McKee property, west of Hwy 10 on Derry Road. In the 1970s it moved to the north-east corner of Streetsville and then to a location near Etobicoke Creek, close to the Airport. In 1973 it was moved to 5th Line north of Hwy 401. For 12 years the camp was located on property owned by Markborough Properties, until it was moved to Meadowvale Conservation Park in the 1980s, at Derry Road and 2nd Line. It was officially opened there on August 18, 1982. In 1995, Camp Toto, as it was affectionately known, moved to a permanent location in the north-west corner of the City. In 2004 Camp Totoredeca was closed and the area is now a leash-free dog park. Day camps in the City are now located at various community centres and are called Children┐s Activity Centres. In 2017 Camp Totoredeca Summer Camp was discontinued. This photo is of a directional sign at the camp. Description as of February 2018.
