Day Camp

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 from 9am to 5pm. A hot lunch is provided, plus a morning and afternoon snack. Campers age 7+ by the end of the year may participate in a sleepover on the Thursday night of each session. This special evening includes pizza and ice cream plus a camp-wide event and campfire. On that day younger day campers may stay until campfire ends, at 9:00 pm. Extended care is available for day campers: 8-8:30am OR 5:30-6pm for an additional $25 per session week or register for 8-8:30am AND 5:30-6pm for an additional $50 per session week.

Unit groups are divided by age. Our three youngest groups make home base in one of our cabins (Beach, Birch or Elm) and our two oldest groups make home base in Farrell portable (Butternut). The small group nature of our program and the personal attention paid to each camper, makes Day Camp an ideal choice for first time campers, and often serves as a stepping stone to Overnight Camp.

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.
