SUMMER CAMP ACTIVITIES

Kettleby Valley Camp is an outdoor summer camp near Aurora, Ontario where campers learn to be more self-reliant and supportive of their fellow campers and the staff that lead them. This is accomplished in part through the use of fun and exciting camp activities like, Red Cross swim instruction, canoeing, climbing wall, ropes course, arts and crafts, drama, nature, archery, cross bow and bouldering.

 

OUR CAMP STAFF

Our Camp staff, many of whom have grown up at Kettleby Valley, work together with the campers to create a friendly and fun filled environment. Each year, staff members take part in our week-long staff training prior to the beginning of Camp. This gives us the time to set the expectations for the summer, while providing camp staff with the tools necessary to meet them.

Our beautiful 60 acre camp setting is an ideal place to spend the summer.
