Day Camp Program Details

Camp McLean is the place to be this summer! Our Day Camp is an outdoor focused program, which emphasizes the development of outdoor skills, environmental awareness and wilderness exploration on the camp’s 50 acres plus we are surrounded by Campbell Valley Parks with many trails. The Day Camp is for youth ages 5 to 11 and has space for a maximum of 60 campers per week. Youth are placed according to age into a camper group supervised by trained counsellors.

Our daily program is very well balanced. The activities are selected to build outdoor skills, self-confidence, respect for others and the environment, teamwork, and of course because they are fun. Each activity is age-appropriate and takes into consideration skill levels of the youth participating. Each camper will enjoy activities within their group as well as visiting our many sites on the property including McLean Pond where campers participate in canoeing and paddling.  In our craft area, campers will have the opportunity to make wooden crafts and other creative crafts, all of which make a wonderful memory of their time at summer camp.  Camp McLean also offers a great outdoor pool (with lifeguards) where our campers hone their swimming skills or enjoy playing in the water with friends.

We pride our program on the emphasis of outdoor skill development, including but not limited to fire and shelter building, hiking, orienteering, archery, and more.

NOTE: Activities may vary based on weather conditions and age appropriateness.

Camp Rules, Guidelines and COVID-19 Safety

The rules and regulations of the camp will be discussed with each camper on the first day of camp. Campers are not permitted to wander off unsupervised or leave camper groups without permission. We reserve the right to dismiss/suspend any camper who continually displays disruptive or unsafe behaviour. This is to ensure the utmost safety of all participants.

If medication is required, please ensure that this information is on your child’s registration form. It must be in a secure package (e.g., Ziploc bag) and delivered to the staff at camp. The medication is to be labelled as follows: Camper’s name, program/dates, type of medication and dosage, treatment, and reason for medication. Medication will be stored with our Day Camp Director and will be given as you have directed. Please advise us if there are any changes to medication during your child’s stay.

All Lost & Found articles will be stored until the end of each week. Please check the Lost & Found on Friday afternoons. After the camp season, lost & found will be sorted and only those deemed valuable will be kept at the Summer Office until the end of summer, at which time any unclaimed articles will be donated to a charitable organization.

Measures that will be in place to ensure a safe and healthy camping experience include but aren’t limited to:

  • Scouts Canada mandatory vaccine policy for all staff & youth 12+
  • Staff roles dedicated to routine cleaning and equipment disinfection
  • Sign-up systems and limited capacity in group settings for programming & activities
  • Outdoor programming as much as possible; designated indoor locations for each cohort in inclement weather
  • No food services
  • Masking indoors & distancing requirements (as determined by Public Health)
