United Church Camps

About the United Church Camps

Camping is an important ministry in Canadian Shield Regional Council and The United Church of Canada. For over 85 years, people of all ages have come to United Church camps to develop leadership skills, experience the outdoors, have fun, build community and deepen their faith in God. It is part of the larger Faith Formation Ministry within the region and works to connect camps with campers.
