Pearce Williams strives to do this in a non-competitive, caring way, allowing your child to discover the world around them, while promoting success, self-confidence and self-esteem in a safe, secure and stimulating environment. We strive to have all campers live and grow in a Christian community environment.
At camp the emphasis is always on participation, effort and attitude! We feel that camp is a unique place where every child can be a winner.
We provide campers with the opportunity to become part of a family, where they can take healthy risks, get rewarded for successes and develop self-esteem and life skills. In the meantime they will learn about independence, interdependence, tolerance, responsibility, friendship and loyalty. It is at summer camp that they learn to take risks, learn to resolve conflicts in a natural manner, learn to appreciate and protect our environment, learn to stay healthy, learn to be responsible for their personal belongings, and learn to have fun with unabashed enthusiasm.
Who Works with the Campers?
Our Summer Camp staff live by the philosophy that “We need to do what needs to be done to show our summer campers the most amazing summer camp experience”. Our staff are trained to work and provide program for campers of all ages. Each staff member brings their own unique personality that helps create the Pearce Williams Summer Camp environment.
How Safe is Camp?
The well being of our campers and staff is of the utmost importance to Pearce Williams Christian Centre. We are accredited by both the United Church of Canada and the Ontario Camping Association. Our accreditations ensure that we meet the highest standards for safety, leadership, programs and administration while following the accepted best practices in camping. We strive to be a peanut-safe facility. Our facility is also wheelchair accessible.
What Will My Camper Do at Camp?
At Pearce Williams Summer Camp your camper will do it all. Campers go swimming, play a variety of sports, learn about the environment, and create mini-masterpieces in arts & crafts. Each camper will also get to “Choose Your Own Adventure” (CYOA) each week – our staff lead daily sessions sharing their passions (cooking, writing, building, sports etc.) and campers select one CYOA to attend daily for the week. Campers choose their own adventure session on arrival day.
New programs continue this summer: World Camp & Farm Camp Programs.
Other activities at camp can include: swimming, nature/ecology, sports, geo-caching, sport stacking, low ropes, initiatives, arts & crafts, archery, chapel, drama, singsongs, hiking, sleep-outs, cook-outs, rocket building, Battle Stilts and much more.
