Campsite Locations

There are close to a thousand summer campsites Canada-wide. About a third of them are located within the province of Ontario, where there is a strong tradition for university students to Work as role models for children / youth in an outdoor setting during the summer months; many other camps are scattered across the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec, mainly.

Most of the campsites are located in remote areas, deep in the forest. Although most of them have phone lines and internet access, the possibility of spending long hours in front of a screen is limited.
