  • Summary Profile

    Kettleby Valley Camp answered our questions

    Who are you as an organization?

    Kettleby Valley is a day and overnight summer camp offering traditional camp activities such as canoeing, climbing wall, archery and swimming. Kettleby Valley Camp has the look and feel of a traditional northern camp that’s just north of Toronto. We don’t believe you have to put three hours between you and your children to have a quality summer camp experience!

    Who are your staff and counsellors?

    "Each year, we assemble a unique team to work at KVC. Here are a few qualities that we look for in all of our staff, no matter the position:
    1 - they must know the importance of making everyone feel welcome at camp.
    2 - they must be here at camp to contribute to their camper’s experience wherever they can. They all understand that their social needs are secondary to those of our campers.
    3 - they must understand the link between the demands of the job and achieving the rewards. Working at camp has its challenges, but there are few jobs that come with the satisfaction we receive through helping campers grow during their time at KVC. If we want to feel fulfilled with our working experience, we must all be willing to put in the work."

    What do families need to know about registration?

    "Our registration opens at 7:00 AM on November 1st and most of our spaces are filled right away. Families can cancel until April 30th (cancellation fees may apply) so submitting your request to be on the waitlist is an important step as changes do occur."

    The Our Kids review of Kettleby Valley Camp

    our take

    It’s a truism, but worth repeating, that at camp there is more than meets the eye, and Kettleby is a great example of that. It’s a traditional camp, with all the traditional activities, from canoeing, to swimming, to hiking, to arts and crafts. There are some updates, too, including paintball. But, as director Peter Truman says, “all the activities really are a medium for us to help kids understand that trying new things isn’t a big deal.” And with that comes a lot of social, emotional, and physical growth and development, something that the Kettleby program actively brings to the fore. There has been a camp on this site since the late 1950s. The cities to the south have grown, and it’s not as far from the urban environment as it once was, though that brings a nice plus as well: it’s close to home, something that both parents and campers appreciate.
