2019 Camper Sessions
COUNTDOWN IS ON TILL THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER CAMP!
At Kwasind we use the theme each week to create memorable experiences for each camper through which they will have many “WOW” moments. With some of the best and most creative staff, we will be having a new theme each week of our camp program which will be revealed through challenges, activities, meals, worship, chapel, and wide-games. Campers will meet new characters and have fun adventures throughout the week!

Summer Camp Details
- BUS TRANSPORTATION:
Bus transportation is provided for an additional fee either one-way or round trip from Toronto.
** not available for LIT, EXPLORERS or Celebration Weekend
- STAYOVER PROGRAM
We are running a special program on Saturday for campers who are registered for two consecutive sessions. What this means is that campers will now have the option to stay-over at camp between sessions (Sat afternoon to Sunday afternoon) for an additional fee in which we have camp staff running a unique stay-over program catered specifically to that group of campers.
Laundry Services (Optional)
If registered for two consecutive sessions, campers have the option to purchase laundry services to have their clothing washed over the weekend between camp sessions.
- EMAIL YOUR CAMPER SERVICES (Optional)
We are using BUNK1 camper email service to have their parents, family and friends send some short emails which will be delivered to the campers during the weekly sessions. Close to camp session time, parents will be sent instructions on how to sign up for the service which will include access to all session camp photos (free) and, as an option, the ability to email campers (for a modest cost).
We do ask for parents’ and family discretion in sending emails to campers as it can actually trigger homesickness, not only in other campers who do not receive any mail, but also in the camper him/herself. We ask that emails are kept short, positive, without stressing how much they are missed or what they are missing at home. Focus on excitement to hear stories of all the camp activities once they get home from camp will help the camper stay focused on enjoying camp and staying connected with leaders and campmates.
We respectfully request that parents do not leave packages to be delivered to camper during the camp session as cabin leaders find that it disrupts their cabin time with campers, and also triggers homesickness in others.
At Camp Kwasind each camper will participate in the 2 same morning electives of their choice throughout the whole week they are registered. Camper’s select their top 3 preferences for these 2 morning electives throughout the week and we do our best to have each camper in their top two selections. Elective Forms* can be filled out by logging into your account here and submitting your camper’s Elective Preference Form.
* NOTE: Elective forms typically are available by end of May – mid-June; all parents will be notified by email when they are available to be completed and submitted in each camper’s online account.
Elective options typically include (though subject to change):
Aqua Skills n’ Sports – a fun way to stay cool while working on your skills and confidence in the water! Each day there’s different water based activities and games depending on the campers skill level and enthusiasm.
