Bushy Hill offers four unique camps to children ages 5-16. We believe that as people grow in their understanding of the natural world, they, in turn, grow in their understanding of others and, ultimately, of themselves. Located on 700 acres of mixed forested land, Bushy Hill features miles of maintained hiking trails, an eclectic farm, a mile-long, spring-fed lake, and a brand new nature center.

Activities include exploring the natural surroundings, pond probe, hiking, team building, group games, swimming, tracking, safe fire making, plant/animal identification, and more!

Camps run 8:30am – 4:00pm with bus transportation, before and after-care available upon request.

Bushy Hill Day Camp fosters a child’s curiosity and love for nature in a responsible, caring, and non-competitive manner. Two-week sessions; ages 5-12.

 Bushy Mountain Camp is for teens that are ready to take on responsibility and use cooperation and communication with peers to complete team building activities and projects. Two-week sessions; ages 13-14.

Counselor in Training Program offers teens the unique opportunity to learn and develop skills as a counselor, including conflict resolution and group management. Two-week sessions; age 15.

ABO (Aboriginal camp) teaches the indigenous and native skills and knowledge used by our ancestors to live with the Earth. One-week sessions; ages 13-16.
