Overnight Camp (Ages 7-15)

A small camp atmosphere and a child-centred approach offer campers a safe environment to try new things and grow as individuals.

Overnight campers sleep in comfortable log cabins with their group of 8 campers, supervised by at least 2 staff in an adjoining room. Each cabin has its own washroom, shower and common area.

Eating, living and participating in daily activities together will encourage campers to learn responsibility for themselves and consideration for others as part of a caring community.

Canterbury Hills Camp Is…

Child-centred

Our program is centred around the campers. Our staff listen to their needs, encourage their ideas, and provide opportunities for adventure and challenge. All aspects of a camper's development - physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual – are taken into consideration.

De-centralized

Each camper is a part of a group with 8-10 other campers and at least 2 leaders, called a "Unit" that designs its own program and participates in some activities within the larger camp community.

Unit-based

The Unit will make decisions together and plan its own schedule. The Unit relies on one another as they do all their activities together throughout their time at camp. Staff encourage and facilitate the Unit to make decisions about their daily activities and build on life skills such as co-operation, listening and respect.
