Bridge Camp (Ages 7-12)

New for 2022 Bridge Campers build confidence and independence in this program that “bridges” the day camp and overnight camp experience. Bridge camp is the perfect step for campers who love our day camp program and are curious about what overnight camp has to offer.

Bridge camp unit groups are divided by age and include 8 - 12 campers and 2 unit leaders. Bridge campers spend the first two days of their camp session following a day camp schedule with daily pick up and drop off. The second half of the bridge camp week transitions to an overnight camp experience with drop off on Wednesday morning, two sleepover nights at camp, and pick up on Friday after dinner!

A Bridge Camp week at a glance:

  • Monday: morning drop off, afternoon pick up
  • Tuesday: morning drop off, afternoon pick up
  • Wednesday: morning drop off, sleep at camp
  • Thursday: regular "overnight" camp day including pizza dinner, evening game, and campfire, sleep at camp
  • Friday: regular "overnight" camp day, afternoon pick-up

Vaccination Policy

Canterbury Hills Camp staff and campers will adhere to all provincial public regulations, in addition to any health and safety policies established by its board or the Anglican Diocese of Niagara. All camp staff will be expected to be vaccinated with a full series of an approved COVID-19 vaccine, as recommended by Ontario's Ministry of Health.

All campers must be vaccinated with two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, prior to the start of their session at camp, unless an exemption has been reviewed and granted. Submission of proof of vaccination will be required at least 14 days prior to starting camp.

Online Registration

Bridge campers sleep in comfortable log cabins with their group of 8-12 campers, supervised by at least 2 staff in an adjoining room. Each cabin has its own washroom, shower and common area. Bridge campers will have the opportunity to participate in a cookout campfire dinner and will sleep indoors in their assigned cabin on both sleepover nights.

Regular evenings at camp include a creative camp-wide evening program hosted by one of the cabin groups. After a snack, all campers and leaders gather around the campfire for skits, songs and lots of laughter.

On the first morning of camp, groups learn about typical activities, brainstorm creative activities, express what activities they are most interested in, and craft a unique schedule for their group. Parents receive a copy of their camper's schedule at pick-up on the first day.
