At Kettleby Valley, our summer camp philosophy focuses on developing confidence through promoting a healthy sense of independence.
Through the use of a few core values, our summer camp staff works hard to ensure that each camper is provided with the environment necessary for individual growth. We insist that each camper displays respect both to themselves and to others. Camp staff encourage campers to show determination in the things they choose to do. At summer camp, the children learn to take responsibility and show accountability for their choices and actions. Finally, our summer camp philosophy teaches children the importance of being independent while having the strength to admit when they need help.
With many families, both parents work. In other cases, families consist of one parent and the challenges associated with balancing work life with opportunities for their children can be difficult. We will go to every effort to provide a camp experience that assists families with balancing a busy schedule by offering a variety of programs and service options that are all close to home.
Our traditional Ontario summer camp has the feel of a northern setting without the three hour drive. We offer both day and residential programs. Weekly sessions are also available. We provide a variety of traditional camp activities and a 1:4 staff to camper ratio.
