Teen Camp

Each summer we have one week of Overnight Teen Camp with lots of fun activities every day including dynamic games and group activities, our Bible lessons, nightly campfires, and afternoons at the beach with an opportunity to go swimming, play volleyball, chill out or go boating and try tubing. All meals are included, and the food is healthy and delicious. The camp is for children age 12 and up, and registration opens in January.

青少年夜宿夏令营。我们将负责交通、一日三餐和安排每天有趣的活动日程,其中包括各种互动游戏、分组活动、圣经学习、每天晚上的篝火晚会、下午的海滩活动包括游泳、排球、划船、划轮胎、滑水等等。

Detailed Information about Camp

Camp Details

Teens will be divided by gender into groups of 7-8 campers with 1-2 counsellors for each group. Males and females will be separated in different areas of the campground. Mutual requests for campers of the same gender to be in the same group can often be accommodated. We will be providing a large tent as accommodation for each camper group (campers must bring their own sleeping bags and pillows). Our common times for meals and Christian education will be in a nearby pavilion, and our common time for activities will be at the nearby beach.

Daily Schedule

In addition to lots of fun, we will be learning about God, Jesus and the Bible and how we can start and develop a relationship with him. Our teaching will also involve various issues of life and faith. The following is our daily schedule at teen camp:

Transportation

You may drop your camper off directly at the park where our staff will be waiting, or you may utilize our transportation. If you need transportation, you must arrange this ahead of time with us by selecting the appropriate option on the registration form. The pick up location is Sir Alexander Mackenzie SR PS (33 Heather Road, Scarborough). We will depart around 9AM Monday July 17, so be sure to arrive early (by 8:30AM), and we will return around 5PM Friday July 21.

Food

We will provide healthy, delicious and kid-friendly meals. We cannot guarantee a peanut-free environment, but we do not knowingly serve peanut products, and we ask that campers do not bring peanut products. We encourage the drinking of water to prevent dehydration.

A menu will be available in early June.

Medical Care

Safety is our highest priority, and we train our staff to provide a safe environment. A complete copy of our protocol for working safely with children and teens (called “Plan to Protect”) is available here. We have a nurse on staff to assist in any medical issues including delivering required medications or over-the-counter medications, bandaging and caring for minor injuries, providing first aid, and accompanying a camper to the local hospital (the Orillia hospital is only 10 minutes away). All medication must be given to our medical staff and not stored with the campers.

Please do not send your child to camp your home has a bedbug issue. Please check your child for headlice before coming to camp. Everyone will be inspected for headlice upon arrival, and any camper with headlice will not be able to attend the camp (a 50% refund will be made).
