This is our 15th year of offering quality day camp programs to our community, and we are looking forward to another exciting summer at CGC Camps! This summer, Calvary Adventure Camp (ages 4-13), will run for 7 weeks, beginning July 2nd. The Adventure Zone, our camp for junior high teens aged 11-15, runs from August 6-9, and is packed full of exciting trips and activities.

We have carefully selected our camp staff based on their experience working with children and their commitment to running an excellent camp program. Several of our staff are college-age students or young adults who have chosen to work at camp because they love kids and want to be a positive role model for them. Staff training is extensive, and includes training in first aid and child safety.

We are now accepting registrations for camp and will continue to do so until the camps reach their capacity. You may register your child for camp by printing off a registration form from this site.

Standards of Behaviour Policy
Our goals are to provide a safe and loving camp environment, and to offer an excellent camp program. We want every child's camp experience to be a positive and enjoyable one.

What to Bring to Camp
Each day, campers should come to camp with: a lunch, snacks, drink, hat, and shoes in which they can run. In addition, please send your child to camp with sunscreen on, as children will be outdoors during the day.
Please check back here on our camp website frequently during the week(s) that your child is registered for camp. We will use this site to communicate reminders and potential program changes should the need arise.
