Director's Message


Grayson Burke, Camp Director

Hello Campers and Parents, My name is Grayson Burke and I am proud to be a founder and Director of Cedar Ridge Camp. In 2005, Cedar Ridge was founded by Peter Ruys de Perez, who wanted to create a camp where children could develop both life and outdoor skills, while making new friendships and memories. Having grown up as a camper at Camp Mazinaw in Bon Echo Park, Peter understands the value and impact that camp can have on a child’s life and is committed to making this this experience possible for others. Cedar Ridge truly has a family feel, as almost all of our staff has grown up here as campers and Leaders in Training. I have always felt that camp is a great place to get away from the city and connect with the natural environment, all while learning a variety of new outdoor skills. At Cedar Ridge we focus on skill development in areas such as canoeing, swimming, horseback riding and climbing. Since 2005, it’s been a pleasure to watch the Cedar Ridge community grow and I look forward to another amazing summer in 2016. If you have any questions about the camp, please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime.

Happy Camping,  

Grayson Burke

Stories & Testimonials


Camp Activities

Cedar Ridge campers participate in a full range of activities including canoeing, rock climbing, horseback riding, kayaking, archery, sailing, arts and crafts, woodcraft, swimming, and a wide variety of sports. Campers are encouraged to try every activity on a rotational basis, and lessons are catered to interest and skill level. Our location also offers excellent opportunities for more adventurous forms of recreation such as mountain biking, white water canoeing, and climbing/hiking expeditions. Each camper gets to experience an overnight camping trip guided by experienced and qualified staff members. Trips range from 1 to 6 nights depending on age. In addition, there are many special events such as camp games, regattas, and talent nights.

Swimming Program

At Cedar Ridge Camp a large portion of our activities are located on or around our beautiful waterfront. As such, we believe that each camper should work towards developing strong swimming skills, partnered with a deep knowledge of water safety and waterfront rules. Upon arrival at camp, camper must participate in a mandatory swim evaluation to determine their ability and place them in a swimming class. Swim instruction occurs daily with campers working towards Lifesaving Society Swim Levels, eventually working towards earning a Bronze Cross certification.

Camp Location and Philosophy

Cedar Ridge Camp is located 28 km east of Bancroft, Ontario, close to the Little Mississippi, York and Madawaska rivers, while only 30 minutes from Algonquin Park. The site is a secluded bay with 3400 feet of beautiful beach shoreline on 150 acres of private terrain bordered by a 900-acre parcel of crown land. The private setting is an ideal environment for Canadian camp living and activities. Our site's diverse landscape offers opportunities for canoeing, climbing,swimming, biking and hiking. Cedar Ridge opened in 2007 as a traditional summer camp for boys and girls ages 6 -16 emphasizing personal development and team building skills. Our professional staff communicate these values through active participation in various outdoor activities.
