We don't want you to have any worries.

It's natural for you to have questions.

Sending your child off to camp is a big deal, especially if it's for the first time. Camp is an exciting and fun-filled place with new friends, new adventures, new skills and new experiences. Not to mention, it's a completely different place with new beds, food, and routines!

Here are answers to the top questions parents ask about camp, based on our 64 years of overnight camping experience.

Missing Home

When campers are away from home, they may go through a period of homesickness as they adjust to camp. Our camp staff know how to detect early symptoms of homesickness and receive training on how to help children feel comfortable and respond to their individual needs.

Being Safe

All of our counsellors are certified lifeguards and have current First Aid and CPR training. During camp activities, staff carry first aid kits to ensure that bumps, scrapes and bruises can be taken care of immediately.

 

Fitting In

Camp Henry is a positive space, where people of any background, belief, ability are welcomed and respected. Our staff are trained and experienced in providing high quality care for our campers and ensuring that the needs of each camper are met. 

Feeling Comfortable

While camp offers opportunities for close friendships and new group skills, young people can react to these changes in many different ways. At Camp Henry it is our goal to provide a safe, comfortable and supportive environment for each camper.
