Our Summer Programs 


Family Camp

This 2-night session allows the whole family (including parents) to share the Kidston experience at the same time. There is lots of choice for kid-only, adult-only, and everyone-together activities. Families can request to bring their own tents or trailers, or can stay together in one of our cabins. Our single registration fee covers food, materials, and activities for all family members.


This 4-night session is tailored specifically for the youngest campers who need a little more care and attention. Staff ratios are higher than with our multi-age sessions (maximum of 1 staff: 6 campers) and activities are simplified to help ensure every camper experiences success. 

Multi-age Sessions

Multi-age sessions can help simplify a busy summer by allowing all children in a family to attend camp at the same time, Or, if your children would rather have a bit more independence from their siblings, there is still the option for them to come to different sessions. Choose what works best for you.
