Pioneer Camp Ontario is an overnight Christian summer camp for kids ages 5 to 17. Voted the “Best Residential Summer Camp in the GTA” by readers, Pioneer Camp offers camp programs for children and youth as well as specialty programs in leadership development and adventure.

With more than one staff for every three campers, Pioneer Camp provides an experience that is fun, safe and highly personal in a strong community context. Our goal is to provide a fun, safe and valuable camp experiences for every camper.
