Welcome to Camp Hurontario – celebrating 74 years in camping!

For over seventy summers, Camp Hurontario’s small group philosophy has built lasting friendships, self-confidence and strong personal skills, in a unique non-competitive outdoor environment.

Hurontario boys

Camp Hurontario’s spectacular location in the Thirty Thousand Islands of Georgian Bay, two hours north of Toronto, offers the ideal setting for a wide range of outdoor summer activities, including canoeing, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, swimming, rock climbing, ropes, archery, range shooting, fishing, biology and arts.

Our philosophy is designed around growth and development, so that there is always a new and appropriate challenge at each age level. Our small groups and non-competitive atmosphere provides an opportunity for a more flexible approach to learning than that of a school setting. Boys from all over the world are able to develop strong personal skills, great friendships and a wonderful sense of community.

Camp Hurontario offers a variety of sessions from 7 days to three and a half weeks, for boys aged 5 through 16. Sessions are tailored for different age ranges and levels of experience. Camp sessions begin at the end of June in 2021. Please refer to our dates and rates page for more information.

Registration update

Registration for the summer of 2021 is open! We are very excited and look forward to welcoming everyone to Hurontario for summer in the outdoors.

As these COVID times are unsettled, Hurontario’s opening will be based on the directives passed along from the Public Health and Government authorities. The health and safety of our campers and staff will remain our first priority. Further, should there be a decision from these authorities that overnight camps are unable to open (and we remain very optimistic that we will be able to open), all deposits for 2021 will be refunded or credited to a registration(s) for the 2022 season.

Hurontario will continue to be in touch with our camp community as we move forward. As more information becomes available that is important to Hurontario’s summer planning for the summer, we will be sure to keep you informed.

Why Hurontario?

Friends…

Hurontario’s unique small-group philosophy leads to great friendships and a wonderful sense of community while building self-confidence and strong team skills.

Skills…

Building life-long outdoor skills from swimming, sailing, and canoeing to nurturing creative sparks at art and woodcraft, Hurontario offers boys opportunities to excel and grow.

Experiences…

Whether it’s a 5-day canoe trip in Georgian Bay or a 3-week whitewater trip to the Arctic, Hurontario campers share exciting outdoor experiences impossible to find in the city.

What our campers and parents say…

Heading to Hurontario is the best way to spend a summer! Whether on a canoe trip in Labrador, sailing on the Georgian Bay, or watching a sunset with your friends, camp allowed me to develop life skills that I simply couldn’t have found anywhere else. 

At camp, I met some of my closest friends, gained confidence in who I am, and developed a deep appreciation for the outdoors…

I’m a 16 year old incoming CIT. I’ve been at camp Hurontario for the last 9 summers and loved every second of all those summers. When my mom first asked if I wanted to go to camp as a 7 year old boy I didn’t know what to think.

And then she mentioned canoeing, sailing, and archery. Let’s just say I was hooked. After my first summer it quickly became the highlight of my year. Which is why I’ve gone back every summer…

Hurontario has been a key part of our extended family for decades. My brothers and my husband all grew up at the camp, now followed by our two sons and my nephews.

The back to nature, rustic approach of Hurontario is exactly the break our boys need every summer from screen-filled city living...”
