"Our sons have matured in their faith as independent, compassionate young men and we are confident that Ontario Pioneer Camp has played an important role their development along the years."
We have offered enriching, adventurous experiences for campers in beautiful Muskoka for over 90 years. With more than one staff for every three campers, we provide a highly personal, safe and relational camp experience. Along with exciting themes and special events, campers choose skill development options such as swimming lessons, high ropes, biking, sailing, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain boarding, arts & media and much more. Relevant, age-appropriate Bible discussions give campers the opportunity to explore their faith and grow in their relationship with God alongside caring staff. We love seeing campers grow in confidence, friendship, leadership and character while outdoors with friends at camp.
Ontario Pioneer Camp is one of nine InterVarsity camps located across the country. The camping program was begun 1929, an expression of InterVarsity, an association of campus ministries intended to bring Christian values and awareness to young people, and support their spiritual and social growth. The camps were part of the initial vision, designed to create a unique opportunity to bring young people together around the unique challenges that a camp setting can provide. That remains perhaps more true today than ever. At camp they unplug, and turn their attention to the community they find there. The activities facilitate a greater understanding of campers’ talents and abilities, as well as the Christian values that inform the programming. The camp has grown over the years, adding new activities, including family camp sessions, all of it furthering the initial goals.
It will be pure joy to welcome campers back in 2021!
If 2020 has taught us one thing, it's that we need to stay flexible. As a result, we've:
-planned with flexibility in mind -updated health and safety protocols -explored reduction in camper capacity -modified activities
Safety and training have always been a priority for us, but in 2021, they take on a new dimension. Here is what we are doing to ensure camper safety: -public health guidelines will be met or exceeded -staff training will include enhanced health and safety training -COVID-19 and symptom management and care measures will be established.
We are looking forward to creatively welcoming campers back on 2021. We will keep camper families and registrants updated as plans progress.View recent COVID-19 updates from InterVarsity Pioneer Camp Ontario
