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.

Sessions operate daily with staggered arrival times and pick-ups depending on your campers cabin assignment. Arrival time will either be between 8:30am-8:45am, or 9:00am-9:15am. Pick-up time will either be between 4:50pm- 5:10pm, or 5:15pm- 5:30pm. You will be notified of your cabin group and scheduled arrival and pick-up time ahead of your camp session. All campers are invited to attend an extended evening on Thursday night where they will receive a pizza dinner, play an evening game, and participate in a group campfire. Pick up is set for 8:30pm. Due to Covid-19 restrictions there will be no extended care offered this year.

Unit groups are divided by age. Each week we will have 6 day camp groups assigned to a cabin on main camp as their home base (Beech, Birch, Elm, Maple, Oak, and Pine). We have extended our age range of our day camp program to serve children between the ages of 6-12. The final week of day camp, August 23-27 will have the age restriction pushed back to serve all youth between the ages of 6-14. Each group will have a maximum number of 10 participants per cabin, and 2 unit leaders. To see our indepth Covid-19 response and policies, please click HERE

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.
