Summer Day Camp
Kettleby Valley is a traditional summer day camp in the heart of York Region. We are situated on 60 private acres with forests, fields and waterfront. Our day camp offers the amenities of a northern summer camp without the three hour drive. Our day camp hosts approximately 240 campers each week throughout July and August. Many of these children grow up with us here, choosing to return to Kettleby Valley each summer. Our camp is large enough to have the energy and enthusiasm to make kids feel like they’re part of something special. Yet we are small enough to be able to get to know and understand each individual child. We feel that there is a connection between independence and confidence. Our approach to day camp aims to leverage this connection. We provide the help and support that each camper needs, while giving them the room to develop a healthy sense of independence. Safety is a priority for our day camp. Kettleby Valley is an accredited member of the Ontario Camps Association. The OCA provides strict youth camps standards and guidelines that Kettleby Valley meets.
We are committed to providing each camper and their family with a quality summer camp experience as outlined on our website, our Parent’s Handbook and other camp literature. It must be understood that camp is part of a community made up of parents, campers, and staff and there are requirements asked of each of these parties. These requirements must be met in order to maintain the safety and satisfaction of everyone involved.
Those who wish to put their needs above the needs and safety of others within our community are not welcome. Verbal abuse, operating a vehicle in an unsafe manner while on camp property, requesting exemptions to camp rules, making demands that are outside of the services outlined in our literature, and general behaviour that prevents us from serving others within our community cannot be permitted to occur.
We are eager to hear from you if you feel that we are not living up to the services that we have agreed to provide. We will make every effort to correct mistakes that are made. However, this process cannot jeopardize the safety of others. We reserve the right to terminate our services and future services at any time.
