    COVID-19 Response 

    There is so much in life that is uncertain right now but Medeba is planning to run a "normal" Summer Camp in 2021 and will be working hard to make it a reality. We don't know what is going to happen in between now and the summer, but we know that Medeba will be offering a Summer Camp Program!

    Register early to secure your spot! For the upcoming summer, we are only asking for a small deposit to secure your space. (The remainder will be due prior to arrival at camp.)

    This deposit is fully refundable in the event we can't run overnight camp.

    If we can't run overnight camp, then we will run Day Camp, Cottage Rentals and another season of the successful Medeba-in-a-box which is our custom made box sent directly to your child to bring camp to their homes! We plan on making this decision by May 1st.

    We know that this has been a difficult time and that your children need to get out and connect with their peers. This is what we can offer and we are excited for what is in store in 2021!

  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Medeba Summer Camp

    our take

    Medeba was founded in 1952 in order to provide a traditional camp experience, one where campers can enter a community of peers who share an engagement within the Christian faith, fostering spiritual growth. The programs are based in the traditions of camping, though have been updated over the years, including the development of rock climbing and mountain biking programs. Additional sessions to the summer camp extend the programming into the shoulder seasons; attention has also been given to the various age groups, with clear, sound programs developed for the various ages and stages. The focus of the camp is on inclusion and personal development, and all the activities have been carefully added and maintained in order to further those core goals

    With approximately 200 acres of property in a near wilderness setting, Medeba has first-rate facilities and extensive adventure-based activities that are designed to build community, trust, cooperation, and teamwork. Using adventure and community as teaching tools is our passion and we want to facilitate an experience that goes above your expectations. Adventure Learning The first goal of our school programs is to help students develop patterns of behaviour that enable them to be effective community members and well balanced individuals. Adventure Learning allows change in students' lives to occur naturally. Community The second goal of our school programs is to model and demonstrate the benefit of being in an effective community, to stimulate learning and growth. We believe that healthy communities, once developed, will promote individual wellbeing. Outdoor Recreational Activities Finally, we want our school programs to introduce young people to unique recreational activities that they could adopt as part of a healthy lifestyle. They are exciting, non competitive and environmentally sensitive.

    • Best in Ontario
      Grew up going to Medeba since I was 5 years old. Best summers with memories lasting a life time. LIT program is best in Ontario! Now my kids love it!
    • Recommending Medeba
      I am recommending Medeba Camp in Haliburton. Three of my grandchildren went this past summer and had a wonderful experience. There are so many activities to choose from and the cabins are new and beautiful! I suggest anyone who wants an exciting time this summer 2012 to call early and sign up for the different events!
    • High Quality Adventure Experiences
      Medeba has a long history of providing high quality adventure experiences that empower individuals and groups to explore personal transformation and a down-to-earth christian spirituality. They were one of the first Christian camps to do this and you can count on both their seasoned staff and their new leaders (Prosago) to operate with integrity and passion.
    • Medeba's the Place for You!
      If you want to attend a summer camp, come on a school trip, have a youth retreat, or be a leadership student, Medeba's the place for you! My first experience was 20 years ago as a camper (and I fell out of my bed twice that week!) and now I've been here for over 3 years and it's been quite the journey!
