Context: Canterbury Hills Camp is located in the heart of the Dundas Valley Conservation Area. With over 60 years of camping history, Canterbury Hills has provided a place where forever memories are made.  Children and youth have an opportunity to explore nature, creativity, and personal development through our unique program.  Based on the philosophy of child-centered, unit based, and decentralization, campers at Canterbury Hills are able to tailor their own session with their unit, based on their needs and interests as they learn cooperation and leadership.

Following two summers of modified programs in response to the Covid-19 pandemic Canterbury Hills is looking forward to reintroducing overnight camp and adventure camp programs alongside our day camp program for summer 2022. The Head Staff Team works collaboratively with the Camp Director to oversee all aspects of the summer camp program.
