Day Camp (Ages 6-10)

Day Campers play and flourish in a beautiful and expansive natural environment. There is room to run, explore and create adventures. Though the camp is only minutes away from Ancaster, Dundas and Hamilton, the setting feels like it's hours away from the city.

Day camp unit groups are divided by age with each group containing 12 campers and 2 unit leaders. Day camp sessions operate Monday - Friday with the exception of the short week following the August long weekend (Tuesday - Friday).
