  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Albion Hills Field Centre

    our take

    Located at the headwaters of the Oak Ridges Moraine, Albion Hills Conservation Area is a natural heritage site comprised of more than 1200 acres of mixed-use green space. Founded in 1955, it's the first conservation facility of its kind in Ontario (as well as home to perhaps the largest breeding colony of herons in Southern Ontario). As such, the property has been a focal point of environmental stewardship for upwards of half a century, and the summer camps were begun in order to extend the work of the field centre. The facilities are exceptional, with all the mod cons and then some. The resources are many and varied, and the camps make good use of all of them. The trails are extensive, and the natural heritage is as well, and the camps seek to allow time engage actively with the habitat and the wildlife populations that it supports. The human resources are notable as well, and campers enter a setting of expertise, interacting with nature with those who have invested their lives in promoting environmental awareness and conservation. The camps are relatively new, though the setting, facilities, resources, and culture are long established and exceptionally managed.

    Director's Message

    Diana Wilson, Supervisor, Albion Hills Field Centre
    20 years of camp experience, B. of Ed in Outdoor and Experiential Education, O.C.T. Teacher

    Hello!

    I'm proud to be part of the team at Ontario's oldest outdoor education centre, Albion Hills Field Centre. I'm always meeting adults who tell me they visited Albion Hills Field Centre 10, 20 or even 40 years ago and they still remember every minute they spent here. What an honour it is to be the keeper of Albion's history and to be sharing the outdoor experience with a new generation of campers. This generation deserves to have the experience of being immersed in nature - losing track of time while you turn over rocks looking for salamanders, singing songs around a campfire, looking up at a sky full of bright stars - I hope your child will join us at Albion Hills for a summer of indelible memories and essential life experiences. 

    Since 1963, tens of thousands of children and youth have spent their first nights away from home in a caring place, immersed in nature. The Field Centre is located within a 1,200 acre destination Conservation Area, with more than 50kms of trails for mountain biking, hiking and exploring. Albion Hills Field Centre has its own dedicated trail system for hiking, biking and games - kind of like a wading pool for outdoor recreation and adventure. 

    Our camps are led by dedicated and experienced outdoor education specialists and camp counselors, who are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment for your child. All staff have training in child development, anti-bullying and outdoor recreation safety. Albion Hills Field Centre camps are all about discovery, nature-connection and developing self-confidence.

    Whether your child is a first-time camper or a seasoned outdoor explorer, Albion Hills Field Centre Overnight Camps will make this summer special. 

    Yours in the Outdoors,

    Diana Wilson
    Supervisor, Albion Hills Field Centre
