General information

Canterbury Hills Camp is an Ancaster based summer camp that has been operating for over 50 years. Our unique camping experience provides opportunities for children and youth to build community, engage in experiential learning and increase environmental awareness. Camper groups are given the opportunity to plan their schedules for the week based on their personal preferences and unique ideas, making every week at camp new and exciting!

Christian Community & Discovery

Our nurturing Christian environment provides the support needed for campers to explore their own spirituality, develop their self-esteem and enrich their faith. Each session the entire camp joins together for the Eucharist celebrated in the Anglican tradition. Canterbury Hills is excited to invite campers of all faiths and religious backgrounds to participate in our camping program.

Safety and Wellness

Our site, activities and social environment are designed to pay particular attention to the physical and emotional safety of all campers. A local physician is on-call and the camp is located close to the city of Hamilton and its emergency services. Well-balanced, nutritious meals are provided, and snacks are available throughout the day.

Children with Special Needs

Canterbury Hills welcomes campers with a variety of special needs. Our partnership with Reach for the Rainbow provides staff support for campers with special needs in order to encourage meaningful participation in the camping program.
