Welcome to Camp Hurontario – celebrating 76 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.

Registration for the 2023 season now open!

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, 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. Please refer to our dates and rates page for more information.

Please call or email the camp office to schedule an info session with Dave Freel, our Managing Director. Get answers to any questions about Camp Hurontario that you (and your camper) may have.

Looking back at summer 2022 – and forward to 2023

The summer of 2022 was so exciting as we welcomed the return of campers and staff to camp island. The energy and enthusiasm were contagious as we all greeted old camp friends and met new cabinmates! What a joy to be back at camp. Every day, groups were paddling to an island for a biology cookout or a game of camouflage with another group. The winds blew and sailors harnessed the breezes out on Twelve Mile Bay. Everyone was keen to whip down the zip line and jump off the top of the big water slide! The fun went on and on.

Hurontario’s long established tripping program returned in full force in 2022 – with white water trips to James Bay; river adventures on the Coulonge and Dumoine rivers in Quebec; senior trips to our North Camp in Missinaibi Provincial Park, which were only some of the adventure-of-a-lifetime trips.

Why Hurontario?


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


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...”
