Come explore the great outdoors while swimming, wall climbing, doing archery, playing sports and much more! Great opportunities will also be there to learn more about God’s love and discuss what a relationship with Him looks like.

Program Descriptions:

Our Launch program is designed to mentor young teens (ages 12 -14) in the areas of leadership and responsibility.  While at camp, they will have an opportunity to serve others by either babysitting or dishwashing, as well as deepening their understanding of Jesus’ teachings.  They will also have opportunities to enjoy fun camp activities like swimming, rock climbing, high ropes and biking.  Hours served at camp can count toward community service hours required for Ontario high schools.

This is an application based program.  Applicants will be required to complete an online application, provide references and participate in our interview process.

So, when did scrubbing pots and scouring bathrooms become such a fun summer learning experience? Come join IMPACT, a newly , relaunched “sweat & study” program for youth 13 – 16 (high school). Discover for yourself what living and serving in Christian community is all about. IMPACT is a place where the beliefs of the Christian faith are explored. Camp chores, work projects, relevant Bible studies, activities and leadership opportunities are all part of this exciting program that will start you on the journey of leadership through service.

Impact is offered at both Boys Camp and Girls Camp where you will sleep in chalets, connect as a small group and also be involved in the program activities of either camp.  Hours served in the IMPACT program, count towards community service hours required for Ontario High Schools.

Take the Challenge, you will never forget it!

Woodland Challenge is a four-week, co-ed program for campers who have completed Grade 9. It includes our longest canoe trips, so get ready to be immersed in the wilderness, sleeping under the stars and cooking over a fire!
Each route of our 11-day canoe trip is tailored to the needs and skills of the campers. Before we leave, our experienced tripping leaders will teach you the skills and techniques necessary for safe travel through the rugged wilderness as well as good stewardship of creation.
Woodland Challenge also includes an introductory 3 day trip, adventure activities, and of course the famous Eco-Challenge where small teams compete in a full day Adventure Race! Woodland Challenge is a unique experience not only because of the outdoor adventures, but because of the chance it provides youth to have discussion about God and His creation, explore scripture and enjoy community in a small group environment.
Minimum swimming levels are mandatory for this program. Campers must achieve a blue lanyard in a swim test upon arrival at camp (including swimming 200m continuously (100m face in), treading water for 5 min and jumping into deep water). Basic canoeing experience is helpful but not a prerequisite. Some outdoor adventure clothing/gear is needed — a specific packing list will be provided upon registration.
