    What do you do differently or uniquely well?

    "Adventure Valley is unique in how we approach camp: we are first and foremost, a community. We purposefully develop a sense of belonging in all of our campers, their parents, and our staff. And, it doesn't just stop at summer! We run community events year-round to upkeep our connections and friendships. Having a community is important to us because it is only when a child feels safe and loved that they can truly learn and grow. Our mission is to grow great kids, with the life skills they need for their future, like leadership, compassion, perseverance and confidence. "

    Who are your staff and counsellors?

    "Adventure Valley recognizes the importance of strong summer staff in the delivery of an unforgettable summer camp experience. It’s our staff, who cultivate cooperation, kindness, and friendship, who build the foundation of a strong camp community.

    As a team, our staff continues to challenge itself: how can we make each day unforgettable? How can we bring our campers closer together? We know we’ve done our job if our campers never want the day to end, never want the summer to be over, never want to lose the feeling they belong – just the way they are.

    We treat our staff like family and support each other all day, every day. We know that our staff, more than any other single factor, make AV the incredible camp that it is."

    What do families need to know about registration?

    "Welcome to Adventure Valley! One of our main values is that planning for summer should be EASY - and boy, do we deliver! Our fees are all-inclusive: every registration includes two snacks, a hot lunch, and bussing from one of our convenient neighbourhood stops. Our registration is quick and easy, with only a deposit ($300/child) needed to confirm your child's spot at camp. The balance of our fees are due by May 1, and families can choose to pay monthly or in one lump sum.

    Cancellation or changes are easy with the best policy in the industry: Cancel or change your child's sessions with no penalties up to seven (yes, 7!) days before your session start date!"

    The Our Kids review of Adventure Valley

    our take

    Adventure Valley provides a true camp experience with the benefit of being close to home. The variety of programs is broad, including all the most traditional camp experiences, though the sense of community is as well--kids have a sense that they belong to something unique, and it is. The camp is run on the campus of St. Mildred's Lightbourn School, which is exceptional in all the best ways: facilities, location, and accessability. Lunch is included with camp fees, which might seem like a little thing, but, frankly, for busy parents, it's a delight. The program is very established, with strong staff who dedicate themselves to the culture of the camp as well as the activities offered. 


    Questions for the Director of Adventure Valley

    Ashlee Woolfson, Camp Director

    View transcript

    Transcript of our interview with Ashlee, Camp Director


    What is unique about Adventure Valley?

    At Adventure Valley, we believe in the power of community. We believe in making sure that every camper feels like they truly belong. Through the relationships we build between our campers and our staff, our campers feel safe to learn and to develop and grow the soft skills that they can then use outside of camp.

    What type of child is successful at Adventure Valley?

    At Adventure Valley, we meet every camper where they are. Our low camper-to-staff ratios ensure that every child is known as an individual, not just as a number. We get to know our campers, and we make sure that each of them can be successful. At camp, we teach life skills like empathy, perspective-taking, perseverance, self-confidence, and more.

    Is your schedule structured or is it more open?

    Adventure Valley runs eight one week sessions to provide maximum flexibility for our camp families. We do encourage our campers to attend a minimum of two consecutive weeks. We do this so that our campers can fully experience our family feel and our camp community. Only when campers truly feel safe and feel like they belong can they really grow and develop.

    How do your staff deal with behavioural issues?

    Our staff are trained to approach all behavioural issues with empathy and to consider the feelings behind every behaviour. Staff are told to talk to each camper individually and really understand where they're coming from, and use each moment as a learning experience for the future.

    What do campers value most at Adventure Valley?

    The number one thing that our campers value are the relationships they build at camp. I can't tell you how many camp parents have told us about lifelong friendships that their kids have made while they were at Adventure Valley. Campers talk about their counsellors year-round and return year after year to see them.

    What message do you have for new campers at Adventure Valley?

    All of our counsellors have crazy camp names like “Spooky” and “Sparrow” and “Batman” and “Piglet.” Every single day we have a camp-wide dance party where we do the camp dance together and sing the camp cheer. Sometimes we have crazy competitions between staff where they have fun making fools of themselves to make our campers laugh. And every Friday we have a theme day where all of our campers and staff come dressed up in the most awesome costumes. You have to be there to believe it.

    "The smiles and laughter are instantaneous"

    Our children have been going to Adventure Valley for several years, and love every day. AV has excellent facilities with a wide variety of activities, access to beautiful outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces for those rainy days. As an added bonus, the location doesn't require a long ride north to attain the facilities. But none of this is what makes AV special. AV's greatest strength is its people. The great people start at the top, with caring management that goes above and beyond to make sure each camper has a fantastic summer. This attitude filters down to their carefully selected staff who go all out each day to make camp fun. We are reminded about the great team each year on welcome night. When our children arrive at camp, they run in every direction to high-five and hug all of their old counselors who they missed all school year. The smiles and laughter are instantaneous, and we know that a great summer is around the corner ... Show More

    "The staff is exceptional, kind, understanding and caring"

    Adventure Valley Day Camp is absolutely incredible! My kids have been going there for 3 years now and to say they love it is an understatement. The experience, fun, excitement, and pure joy my kids felt everyday was unbelievable. They couldn’t wait to get up in the morning to go to camp and loved Sunday’s because it meant Monday was a new week at camp. They talk about their camp experiences, friends, counsellors, and activities ALL YEAR LONG, and count down to a new camp season every spring. My kids absolutely flourished there every summer. Every day they came home beaming with joy, full of amazing stories to tell us at dinner. The staff is exceptional, kind, understanding and caring. I recommend AVDC for everyone looking to send their kids to camp this summer. If I could give more than 5 stars I would ... Show More

    Something for Everyone!

    Excellent range and pace of activities - something for everyone. The councillors bond with the kids quickly, are open-minded and kind. Our camper came home happy each day and looked forward to days ahead, so much so that we booked an extra week. Highly recommend ... Show More

    "Your children will be welcomed into the Adventure Valley family with open arms"

    AVDC has been an enormous part of our family for the past 5 years & has played an integral role in helping to teach both of our young children to be adventurous, curious, kind, silly, creative & fun. We are truly devastated to learn that the relocation of the camp will unfortunately be too far for our children to attend going forward, as it truly is a unique & special place...with amazing staff, who truly care. To those fortunate enough to live in the vicinity of Burlington, Milton, Etobicoke, Mississauga and Oakville, you are blessed to gain such a wonderful gem of a camp. Your children will be welcomed into the Adventure Valley family with open arms, & experience what our children were so lucky to have. Wishing AVDC the best of luck...we will be with you in spirit! ❤ � ... Show More

    Director's Message

    Ashlee Woolfson, Camp Director

    Welcome to our small and family style camp! I believe camp should be a place where every child feels secure and appreciated for who they are. 

    We go beyond summer fun to provide experiences that foster growth and develop the whole child. We focus on building life skills, like confidence, determination, kindness, and positivity.

    We embed our values of trust, community, fun and curiosity into everything we do. We go where our campers can discover new experiences in a safe environment, giving them the freedom to explore who they really are, play in an inclusive zone, and find out what it means to be a friend.

    And we always go to a place where campers are embraced by the spirit and values of our camp community.
