Welcome to the world of overnight camp! This program is designed to introduce and prepare young campers for an overnight experience away from home. Campers will spend the first week at Harbourfront Centre building confidence and learning a variety of skills while also participating in general camp activities such as arts and crafts and active games. The second week will be spent at Lake St. George where they will further develop their skills while participating in outdoor activities such as orienteering, fire building and canoeing. Come and see what overnight camp is all about!
