Glen Mhor Camp is a traditional-style summer camp program located in the heart of Muskoka on Echo Lake, just outside of Baysville, Ontario. Glen Mhor has been operating for over 85 years.
In order to develop a sense of community and foster friendships, campers will participate in most camp activities in their cabin groups. This allows the counsellors to develop a strong relationship with each camper in the cabin and be able to provide the best care for them at all times of the day, including mealtimes, our Talking and Learning in Christ Bible study, during activities, and when going to bed at night.
Each cabin has 12 bunks, sleeping up to ten campers and at least two counsellors. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are eaten in cabin groups in our Lodge. The maximum capacity is 96 campers.
At the beginning of the week, counsellors will ask their cabin what they are most looking forward to about the week at camp. With their campers’ wishes in mind, the counsellors will schedule their cabin’s activities for the week. Counsellors may decide to prepare special activities for their cabin above and beyond the traditional camp sessions.
Every evening, the whole camp participates in an unstructured play time called Funnengames, then comes together to play a camp-wide game. We end the day as a whole camp with singing, skits, and a end-of-day reflection around the campfire.
Each week at Glen Mhor has its own unique theme, which is introduced to campers at mealtimes by different characters. There is often a special time set aside in the weekly schedule for campers to delve further into the theme of their week.
Glen Mhor also offers an integration program for campers and adults with differing abilities and needs. Participants who come through our integration program are paired with a 1:1 counsellor who will be with them all week to ensure their needs are being met. Campers will be placed in a cabin with other children, and participate in daily activities with their cabin group. Adult Volunteers, along with their support counsellors, will help with tasks around camp, such as baking, and watering and maintaining our gardens, and also have the opportunity to participate in camp activities.
