Overnight Campers

Overnight campers sleep in same gender cabins of 8-12 campers with at least 2 staff members. Campers sleep on bunk-beds. Washroom facilities are nearby. Campers are assigned to small activity groups with which they participate in typical camp activities. A regular day at camp starts with a dip in the pool and a balanced breakfast. Throughout the day, campers play two large camp-wide games and participate in 5 group activities such as archery, orienteering, crafts, and pond study. In each day there are two musical sessions and a time to reflect on the values and teachings of the United Church. During the week, campers will also go canoeing, climb the high ropes, receive tuck, and have a camp-out night under the stars.

Christian Education:

Campers are introduced to God in a new and exciting fashion. We recognize that children come from a variety of backgrounds and we strive to provide them with a safe environment to learn about God. Children participate in daily sessions where they sing contemporary worship music, led by a worship band. They also watch an age-appropriate drama that runs the span of the week. After session, children take part in small group discussions and activities where they are encouraged to ask questions and recap what took place during the daily drama. Each day ends with vespers. During this time, campers are led in more worship and participate in skits about God.
