About this camp

Camp Presqu'ile
 

YMCA - Rotary Camp Presqu'ile is a unique summer camp located in South Western Ontario. Through low camper staff ratios, campers are able to be members of a community that focuses on fun, fair play and building relationships with fellow campers and staff. From a Water Trampoline to Archery to Music and Arts and Crafts, we have a little something for everyone.


The Our Kids review of Camp Presqu'ile

 

Camp Presqu'ile was founded in 1929 to reflect the YMCA ideals, and it’s done that ever since. Spirit, mind and body remain the focus, as well as an overt attention to not only having fun, but also developing stewardship, community, and ethical leadership. The staff are drawn to the camp because of the values that they share, which in turn contributes to a strong, inspiring camp culture. The programming beautifully reflects the core traditions of camping in Canada, from active living to personal and interpersonal development. The facilities have been sympathetically updated, including a new dining hall in 1999, and an update to the mod cons in 2005. It nevertheless retains the feel of what camp is about: singing songs, getting out on the lake, and making lasting friendships.

Camp Amazingexpand

The group of counsellors at Camp Presquile were very amazing at helping my son meet other kids. It was his first time every away and I really appreciated the attention that they gave him on his first day. Even when I called the camp after the first night “Andy” was great at checking in with the cabin counsellors and making sure that he was adjusting to camp. I am very impressed by the staff with their energy and dedication that they have in making his experience great. Our son is very excited to return back next summer. He even said it would be great to go for two weeks next time.

It was a long week for us (parents), not having him around, but knew that it was an experience that would help him grow and expose him to different things. I feel great that I had chosen the right camp for our son. Camp Presquile will be forever a positive expirence for our son. A special thanks goes out to “Rambo” (camp name) and Andy.

Thank you,

Jonathan Hanian

Personal Growthexpand

Scott really enjoyed his week and when I asked him why, his comments always go back to the energetic and happy atmosphere and all of the counselors are friendly and supportive."    He particularly enjoyed the team building sessions. We noticed a maturing in Scott over the summer and feel his time with Presqu'ile helped to contribute to his development.

I love Campexpand

This is my sons second year attending and had the time of his life once again. This year he invited a friend that has never been away from home before and loved it. Now my daughter wants to go seeing how much fun and new friends you can make. I love the idea of being able to send emails to him. It is a sense of keeping them updated of what is happening at home that is important to them (how dad was doing in the fishing derby, our dog was having pups etc). I loved how my request for CJ to be placed in the same cabin with 2 other friends was accommodated and meds were given to him during the week. He said the food was amazing and that is something to say for a somewhat 'picky' eater. When I asked CJ what the best part about camp this year was he said,' playing the games, talking before going to bed, and jumping on the water trampoline.' I have to admit I did miss him a lot, but knew that he would be very busy with all the activities that were planned each day and that he would be safe there with all the experienced staff. So...... thanks again for making many more happy camp memories for CJ
