Specially designed for first-time campers, our Tadpole Session offers 3 nights of summer camp fun with extra staff support to ensure our youngest campers have a positive summer camp experience!
Our Junior Sessions offer a 5-night classic summer camp experience including swimming, canoeing and kayaking, out-tripping, faith exploration, sports and games, arts and crafts, and more!
Camp Kidston is thrilled to offer two senior programs this summer!
Our Classic Senior Session offers 5 nights of Kidston fun - swimming, canoeing, kayaking, out-tripping, sports and games, arts and crafts, faith exploration, and more - but with extra adventure and leadership options added in to best suit teen campers!
Our Wilderness Senior Session focuses on outdoor education and leadership skills. Daily programming centers around out-tripping (camping) skills, canoeing/kayaking, swimming and water activities, leadership and team-building, and environmental awareness. This includes the opportunity to plan and participate in extended overnight out-trips (weather-permitting) to campsites across Kidston's property around Long Lake. Of course, this session still includes Kidston favourites such as sports and games, arts, campfires, and faith exploration!
Our CIT Program is designed to develop leadership skills and confidence in working with children, and includes skill development, team building, and unique opportunities to learn to lead programs and work with younger campers!
More information and detailed FAQs on the CIT Program can be found here.
