Get into overnight camp! This program is a great introduction for campers wanting to give overnight camp a try. Located at Lake St. George, the overnight site is close to home but feels miles away. Campers will gain confidence and independence through traditional overnight camp activities like fire-building, canoeing and low ropes, as well as indoor and outdoor activities.
In partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), Harbourfront Centre Camps is pleased to offer overnight camp experiences at TRCA’s beautiful Lake St. George Field Centre in Richmond Hill. The TRCA is one of Ontario’s leading outdoor and environmental education providers with more than 50 years of history and experience. The Lake St. George Field Centre occupies a 120-hectare site on the ecologically significant Oak Ridges Moraine.
Each of the overnight experiences will be run in partnership with the staff at the Lake St. George Field Centre. Campers will participate in a variety of programs, including but not limited to lake ecology, biodiversity, orienteering, canoeing, wilderness survival and team-building. Campers will be supervised by experienced Harbourfront Centre Camps staff.
At Lake St. George Field Centre, campers will be housed in the Bond House dormitory, a climate-controlled facility with washrooms and showers, classroom, lounge, kitchenette area, ping-pong table and mudroom. Each day, campers will be provided with three healthy and delicious home-cooked meals and a snack in accordance with the Canada Food GuideRequest information
