Our Principles 


The beautiful natural setting of Shade's Mills Conservation Area (a thriving ecosystem close to home) lends itself well to activities focused on nature and the environment including hiking, nature crafts, canoeing, fishing and swimming. YWCA Camp staff work with Grand River Conservation Area staff to deliver fun and educational, environment-focused programming.


Subsidized spaces are available to ensure that all children can enjoy camp.


An Inclusion Facilitator is available to ensure that children who need a little extra support can enjoy camp.

Healthy Development

As a High FiveĀ® registered camp, our programs integrate essential Principles of Healthy Child Development, including caring adults, friends, play, mastery, and participation. For more information about High FiveĀ®, visit their website
