Program Information

The program is open to boys and girls aged 8 to 11 as of June 1st. Participation is limited to a maximum of 20 campers per session. Applications are reviewed to ensure they are complete, and that applicants meet the eligibility criteria. All criteria being met, campers are selected and assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. Successful applicants will be notified by the end of April. They will receive a confirmation letter, a "what to bring" list (also available below), and a health history form.

Participants stay in one of our 19th-century residences. These buildings have been outfitted with period furnishings, but also contain modern washroom and shower facilities.

Campers eat in a dedicated dining hall separate from the public area of the site. Our camp kitchen and dining hall are nut-free; however, the children spend significant portions of their day sharing spaces with the general public where contact with food is beyond our control. Please also note that while we make efforts to accommodate dietary requests, we cannot guarantee that all requests can be met. For more information, please contact us at UCVyouthprograms@parks.on.ca

Round-the-clock supervision and direction are provided by camp staff and interpretive staff working in Upper Canada Village.

Below is a helpful packing list of what to bring to the camp and tips on what NOT to bring to camp.
