ABOUT OUR CAMPS

Albion Hills Field Centre has been delivering overnight education and recreation programs for nearly 60 years, teaching children from the Greater Toronto Area about nature, adventure, leadership, and teamwork.

Every day, all year round, we meet children who are sleeping away from home for the first time or trying a new outdoor activity and taking the first steps towards transforming into the person they will become.

We take our responsibility as guides on this journey seriously — which is why all our staff are trained in child development and are experienced in making the outdoors a safe and welcoming space for every child, student, or camper who comes through our doors.
