Welcome to Camp Hurontario – celebrating 75 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, 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 5 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 2022. Please refer to our dates and rates page for more information.

Meet Dave, who will be be leading the CITs and heading down the Kesagami River this summer, his 15th! Dave's favourite relay quote is "A kite flies highest in the wind". He loves camp because he gets to inspire people the same way his counselors inspired him and because camp makes everyone the best version of themselves. Quick note though, the version of Dave you'll see when you arrive at camp might have a different hairdo than the one in this picture! 😜 ... See MoreSee Less

Meet Graeme, who is also celebrating 10 years at camp this summer. He'll be leading the Hamelin section in July, then heading out on a big whitewater trip. Graeme says, "I love camp because it allows me to connect with nature. My father used to take me on canoe trips as a young child, and ever since I have fallen in love with the beauty of Ontario, with all the wildlife, and with the quiet serenity that you can’t find in the city. I believe that friendships created in this setting are much stronger." ... See MoreSee Less

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...”
