Huron Church Camp is a sacred and joy-filled place. We provide children and youth with a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment in which to encounter and celebrate the wonder and adventure of themselves and God's creation.
Established in 1946, HCC is owned and operated by the Diocese of Huron, part of the Anglican Church of Canada.
We invite you to come and see the camp in all its summertime glory! Located just south of Bayfield Ontario, we enjoy a site that offers grassy fields, shady woods, leafy ravines and a sandy beach on the sunny shores of Lake Huron. What an awesome place to experience God's abundant gift to us in creation!
When campers arrive at 4 pm on Sunday, our friendly staff, including two registered nurses, greets them. They are welcomed into their cabin by at least two counsellors who will live, work and play alongside them during their week's stay. After just enough time to pick a bunk and meet the other members of their cabin group, they are off on a journey of learning and fun as they participate in sessions like sports, games, arts and crafts, Journeys (our Christian education component), beach, archery, canoeing, nature and outdoor adventures!
See the heavenly image above? Believe it or not, it was photographed over the camp by our friends from the Kitchener-Waterloo Royal Astronomical Society, who last fall came to marvel at our starry night sky! It is called the Veil Nebula and it is found in the constellation Cygnus, 1470 light years from earth. What a wonder to behold! Many and great are God’s works!
See the sandy beach below? For over 70 years campers have dipped their toes into the sparkling waters of Lake Huron, gathered to live and work and pray and play together. How exciting to imagine who we will meet at HCC this summer! What a wonder to remember those who have gone before us, those who are with us and those still to come, walking together, companions in Jesus’ name.
Here we are at the beginning of a new camp season, a new adventure, a new chapter in the never ending story of God’s love for us, a story as old as the stars above us and the sands beneath our feet, a
Tale as Old as Time
Come, be part of the story!
