TYPES OF CAMPS 

Camp Forward offers four camps at our Cambridge location with a bus from our Kitchener location. 

 

Kindergarten Camp – Campers in Junior and Senior Kindergarten in the 2023-2024 school year.  Kindergarten camp will be divided into groups.  Each group will participate in the same program.  If you are registering with a friend or a sibling and they would like to be together, please ensure you select the same group for them.  Please note that it is not a guarantee as the groups are subject to change. 

 

Elementary Camp – Campers in Grades 1-5 in the 2023-2024 school year.  Elementary camp will be divided into groups.  Each group will participate in the same program.  If you are registering with a friend or a sibling and they would like to be together, please ensure you select the same group for them.  Please note that it is not a guarantee as the groups are subject to change. 

 

Adaptive Camp – This camp is specifically designed for children who would benefit from additional support.  Examples could include special needs, physical disabilities, mental health, and trauma.  Campers in this camp will have a program specifically designed for them and their needs while also spending some time in the mainstream camps.  Please note this camp is taking the place of the 1:1 support we have offered in previous summers, as this new structure will allow a better experience for campers who need some additional support and allow us to help more families.  If you would like your child to be fully included in the mainstream camps, you are welcome to provide your own 1:1 support staff, who must be pre-approved by Camp Forward, and your camper will come for free.  Please note that a spot in Adaptive Camp is not guaranteed as Camper safety is our top priority, and we do have staffing limitations as to the number of adaptive campers we are able to support.  Also, this year, if your child will be mainly in Adaptive Camp, there will be an age limit of 14 (born in 2010).

 

Youth Leadership Camp – Campers in Grades 6-9 in the 2023-2024 school year 

This camp is for young leaders who want to grow as leaders, gain camp experience, and have fun.  This camp is a requirement for youth volunteers who want to volunteer at Camp Forward and have not previously completed Youth Leadership Camp. Youth  

Leadership Camp will run July 2-12 and cost $150 (covers both weeks). Scholarships may be available upon request.
