About Camp Quin-Mo-Lac
Located on the shores of Moira Lake (north of Belleville, between Madoc and Tweed) and affiliated with The United Church of Canada, Camp Quin-Mo-Lac is an overnight summer camp for children of all faiths, aged 7 to 15 years. Seven 1-week camps are held over July and August to give 1,200+ children and youth an affordable experience of living together in a caring, camping environment that promotes diversity, acceptance, and inclusivity. Activities include hiking, swimming, canoeing, archery, rock wall climbing, high and low ropes, orienteering, overnight out-tripping, crafts, music, campfires, cookouts, singsongs, camp-wide games, special theme days, talent shows and vespers to encourage physical activity, personal growth, and building community and relationships with others in an outdoor setting. An outdoor education program for nearby elementary and secondary schools is held over May and June. Many of the same activities are offered to these school groups and tailored to meet their specific curriculum objectives for outdoor activity and education. Weekend rentals and events take place in the shoulder seasons, September to April, giving groups access to outdoor activities and community building within their group. And lastly, an active alumni community continues to grow and disperse around the world.
