About this camp

Hidden Acres Mennonite Camp

Our trained staff care about children and provide a fun, healthy, stimulating and safe experience for your child. A "device free" week in a natural environment provides a healthy pause in a hectic technologically driven world. Call or visit our website for more information.


The Our Kids review of Hidden Acres Mennonite Camp

 

Hidden Acres was founded in the early 1960s in a desire to create a values-based setting where both young people and adults can spend some time away from the daily grind, involving themselves in peace and fellowship. They began with tents on what had been a farm property, though it’s grown considerably since then, both in terms of facilities and purpose. The camp programs are the portrait of what traditional camping is all about: time away from the bustle of the world, a place where kids can spend their days in nature, taking part in camp craft, exploration, and outdoor activity. It’s a device-free environment, which, rightly, for many families is a draw. The core values give life to the programs. A special needs session is a highlight, one of the few available to families in this region. Leadership programs, too, offer a nice breadth to the offering.

Director's Message

director

Chris Pot, Program Director

My wife, Amanda, and I have been a part of the leadership team at Hidden Acres since 2010, and along with our children Hana and Ben, are blessed to call it home.

We value the opportunities we have at camp to provide fun, safe, challenging and often-times life changing experiences for the campers and staff that come each summer. Our hope is that campers will enjoy the silliness of the campfire skits, learn and master new skills, begin new friendships and grow and develop in all areas of their lives.

If you have any questions about any of the camp programs that we offer, please do not hesitate to give me a call or send me an email.

Reflections From Our Summer Campersexpand

"Thank you! Camp was awesome! I loved camp because we got to go canoeing, swimming, rock climbing, hiking, and many more fun things! The best thing at camp was meeting new people and making new friends. My favourite activity was playing a real life game of clue. We also had a campfire every night and we had a snack before we went to bed. We did tug of war and the rope snapped right in half. The talent show was also fun. Thank you once again! Camp was a blast!!!"

 

"Thank you. I loved camp it was very fun! I enjoyed all the activities, rock climbing, canoeing, swimming, hiking and lot’s more! The campfires were really fun I loved all the songs, and the snack at the end. One of my favourite things at camp was having an opportunity to meet lots of new people and making new friends! I loved when we played a game real life clue. I also loved the talent show we had it was amazing. On the last day we had tug of war and the rope ripped it was funny. Thanks a lot again I loved camp!!"

 

"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to go to camp. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you for helping pay and helping get everything ready for camp. At camp, my favorite thing was the camp fires and all the new songs we learned. Everybody was nice and kind to each other. People treated each other like they were brothers and sisters .We all learned something new at camp! Once again THANK-YOU for help!! :)" - Helena
