About this Camp

Albion Hills Field Centre
 

A nature-focused day and overnight camp in a conservation park. Trail biking, camping out, swimming in the pool, catching crayfish in the creek and just being a kid are all part of this child-centred camp. Cozy cabin rooms, delicious food and caring professional staff. We help your child build confidence and independence through adventure, leadership & teamwork.


The Our Kids review of Albion Hills Field Centre

 

Located at the headwaters of the Oak Ridges Moraine, Albion Hills Conservation Area is a natural heritage site comprised of more than 1200 acres of mixed-use green space. Founded in 1955, it's the first conservation facility of its kind in Ontario (as well as home to perhaps the largest breeding colony of herons in Southern Ontario). As such, the property has been a focal point of environmental stewardship for upwards of half a century, and the summer camps were begun in order to extend the work of the field centre. The facilities are exceptional, with all the mod cons and then some. The resources are many and varied, and the camps make good use of all of them. The trails are extensive, and the natural heritage is as well, and the camps seek to allow time engage actively with the habitat and the wildlife populations that it supports. The human resources are notable as well, and campers enter a setting of expertise, interacting with nature with those who have invested their lives in promoting environmental awareness and conservation. The camps are relatively new, though the setting, facilities, resources, and culture are long established and exceptionally managed.
 


The 2020 Experience at Albion Hills Field Centre

UPDATE: TRCA 2020 Summer Camps Posted Thursday, May 21, 2020

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority’s (TRCA) leadership have spent the last two months talking to experts about the constantly evolving landscape in which we are operating. It has become abundantly clear that TRCA’s in-person program offerings cannot realistically be delivered in the current COVID-19 environment, as our number one concern remains the health and safety of our staff and participants.

TRCA’s has a low-risk threshold when it comes to the well-being of our participants. Erring on the side of health and safety for all the right reasons, social distancing creates too many challenges for our dedicated staff to overcome in order to appropriately care for your children.

This announcement is obviously difficult for all those involved, as we can’t imagine a summer without children running around our facilities enjoying the stimulating programming put on by our staff. However, we do know that we are making the right decision, as health and well-being remains our number one priority in these trying times.

We encourage families to take part in TRCA’s #AtHomeWithNature series on Facebook and other virtual programming, including cultural and education offerings, which are all listed on our event calendar www.trca.ca/events

Director's Message

Diana Wilson, Supervisor, Albion Hills Field Centre

Hello!

I'm proud to be part of the team at Ontario's oldest outdoor education centre, Albion Hills Field Centre. I'm always meeting adults who tell me they visited Albion Hills Field Centre 10, 20 or even 40 years ago and they still remember every minute they spent here. What an honour it is to be the keeper of Albion's history and to be sharing the outdoor experience with a new generation of campers. This generation deserves to have the experience of being immersed in nature - losing track of time while you turn over rocks looking for salamanders, singing songs around a campfire, looking up at a sky full of bright stars - I hope your child will join us at Albion Hills for a summer of indelible memories and essential life experiences. 

Since 1963, tens of thousands of children and youth have spent their first nights away from home in a caring place, immersed in nature. The Field Centre is located within a 1,200 acre destination Conservation Area, with more than 50kms of trails for mountain biking, hiking and exploring. Albion Hills Field Centre has its own dedicated trail system for hiking, biking and games - kind of like a wading pool for outdoor recreation and adventure. 

Our camps are led by dedicated and experienced outdoor education specialists and camp counselors, who are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment for your child. All staff have training in child development, anti-bullying and outdoor recreation safety. Albion Hills Field Centre camps are all about discovery, nature-connection and developing self-confidence.

Whether your child is a first-time camper or a seasoned outdoor explorer, Albion Hills Field Centre Overnight Camps will make this summer special. 

Yours in the Outdoors,

Diana Wilson
