In this travelling, off-site adventure, campers discover the triumphs and thrills of wilderness camping, hiking, rock climbing and canoeing.
Adventure Camp is an exciting opportunity to develop outdoor awareness, camping skills, and leadership in the context of a small, supportive community. It's a time to explore, take risks, learn and grow under the guidance of our experienced and passionate leadership team.
The schedule includes camping out at Canterbury Hills, tent camping at Conservation Areas (Kelso, Pinehurst Lake, and Brant), rock climbing at Rattlesnake Point and a multi-day/night canoe trip on the Grand River.
The daily schedule includes group-building activities, food prep and clean-up, games/fun, swimming, campfire and reflections related to themes of eco awareness, character, leadership and spirituality.
Pre-camp prep includes a leader/parent/camper meeting and a detailed packing list that is demonstrated at the pre-camp meeting. All group equipment is provided by Canterbury Hills.
After registration, campers are required to submit an online personal application that includes one character reference. An interview may be requested. Program acceptance is conditional on confirmation of necessary skills for safety and successful participation. If program acceptance is not confirmed, a full refund will be granted.
