Your children can enjoy a wonderful day camp on our 100-acre private site that blends nature, recreation and traditional camp activities for children ages 4 to 15 years! IMPORTANT NOTICE: New Ontario legislation requires children to be four years of age to attend a summer camp program. Your child will have enthusiastic counselors on a 1:5 ratio for children four to five years and a 1:7 ratio for all other ages. In addition, there are program specialists who will help ensure that your child experiences a camp program that will teach new skills and build self confidence in a fun and supportive environment.
The camp day starts at 9:00 am and finishes at 4 pm. Before care is available starting at 7:00 am and after care is available until 6:00 pm.
Red Cross group daily swimming lessons and a camp-t shirt are included in the camp fee.
A forest, a clean-flowing stream and pond, heated swimming pools, shady retreats, sports fields , barns, mountain biking trails, playgrounds and a wall climbing gym are just the beginning of their adventure. Every day at Willowgrove presents a new experience… they won’t want to go home!
