Our camps provide opportunities for campers to learn and grow. Campers will learn new skills, develop greater self-confidence and create memories that will last a lifetime. As Summer Camp, we provide a healthy, safe and secure environment for all participants. We are a fully integrated Summer Camp that values diversity and the differences that form our camp community .
Campers develop outdoor skills such as swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and archery. They learn about ecology and have fun with creative arts. Campers enjoy structured group activities during the day and choose additional supervised free time activities in the evening such as playing and or singing contemporary music. Recognizing the help we provide, The Camp has partnered with SSVP to provide access to youths we sponsor at reduced rates for us. http://ontario.anglican.ca/wp/camp-hyanto/

CPHC Senior Services
CPHC have partnered with St. Vincent de Paul to provide transportation services to those who need assistance. if a client within our service area needed a ride where a CPHC drive would take him or her, but could not afford the CPHC cost for the ride – and if CPHC had no monetary subsidy (which they have in a few cases though not many) – the client could apply to us for help. The call could originate with either the client or through CPHC, using our help-line in the usual way. He or she would fill out a form, submit it, and we would judge whether we can help, as we usually do with regular requests. www.cphcare.ca
