Overnight Camp (ages 7-14)

Overnight Campers explore and thrive in a beautiful and expansive natural environment. Nestled in our log cabins, campers form strong bonds with cabinmates while enjoying outdoor adventures and creative programs.

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

Overnight camp unit groups are divided by age with each group containing 8 - 12 campers and 2 unit leaders. Overnight Camp drop-off takes place Sunday from 6:30pm – 7:30pm and pick-up takes place Friday from 6:30pm – 7:30pm. You will receive an email one week prior to your camper’s session outlining which time to drop-off and pick-up (this is to reduce traffic in the parking lot as parking on the road is not available and you will receive a ticket).

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

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

One evening/night is set aside for a camp-out with sleeping in tents and eating dinner around a campfire. With leaders, groups plan and enjoy special activities and adventures in and around their site.

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.

On the first night of camp, cabin groups learn about typical activities, brainstorm creative activities, express what activities they are most interested in, and craft a unique schedule for their group.
