At Camp Henry, your child is sure to learn new skills, build confidence, and create memories to last a lifetime.
Sleep in style!
Plus, Camp Henry is newly renovated and has state-of-the-art facilities that are fully accessible to ensure your kids will always be comfortable! Think glamping for your youngsters.
oTENTik’s, which are unique to Canada’s National Parks, are a cross between a large cabin and a tent. That means your child will have the fun experience of sleeping in a tent, with the added comfort of a bunk bed, plus each oTENTik is equipped with a heating unit for cooler weather and a large deck (including storage space for personal items).
The camp’s closer proximity to home means younger campers can still enjoy an overnight camping experience and will alleviate some of mom and dad’s worrying. Not to mention the Y’s most trained, caring staff and role models will be there to support your child in their new camping experiences.
Each oTENTik sleeps 6 campers and 1 counsellor, meaning 24- hour supervision.
Each day, your camper will receive a hearty breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus yummy snacks. Our menu is designed to meet the nutritional needs of growing, active campers. We also can accommodate dietary restrictions – just be sure to let us know!
Meals are an important part of camp, as it is a time for a cabin to sit down together and share stories with one another.
Fun Fact: All of our meals are done “family-style”, where campers eat with their cabins for the entire meal. Campers help with setting and clearing their table, and bringing food back and forth from the food window. At the end of every meal we have a set of announcements, which help prepare campers for the rest of their day. More often than not, skits, songs and interesting characters will make appearances during the announcements as well.
Our kitchen team works hard to ensure there are options at each meal so everyone can find something they like! Typical menu options include:
Breakfast: oatmeal, cold cereal, and yogurt will always be available, along with a hot food meal such as bagels, pancakes and sausages, bacon and eggs, waffles, etc.
Lunch: grilled cheese, chicken caesar wraps, perogies, mac & cheese, hot dogs, chicken burgers, etc.
Dinner: lasagna, chicken parmesan, burgers, stir-fry, pizza, tacos, etc.
Lunch and dinner will include either a soup or salad option in addition to the hot meal!
