If you want to send your child to an affordable, week-long overnight camp on a beautiful property where they will experience tons of fun and learn about the amazing love of Jesus, then you’re in the right place!
At SMC, we know how expensive it can be to send your child to camp. We also know the amazing, life-changing experience that camp can be for kids. That’s why it’s our goal to offer camp to families within the GTA, despite the financial restraints that may exist for them.
We accept campers through an application process that is based on income. All the registration spots available are highly subsidized so, if upon registering for camp, you qualify for the subsidy, we will let you know. Then you will be able to complete your registration and pay your nominal fee.

Scott Mission Camp is located about one hour northwest of downtown Toronto in the beautiful town of Caledon, Ontario. When it comes to transportation to and from camp on the first and last days of camp, families have 2 options:
For those located in the city, we have a bus pickup located Downtown, Toronto near the Scott Mission. Here, we do check in and then load the buses to head up to camp for the week!
For those interested, parents/guardians can drop their kids directly at the camp located in Caledon at 3852 The Grange Sideroad. Check in at camp begins at 11:30 on Monday mornings.
We operate on a 4:1 child to counsellor ratio. There are eight children in each cabin with two counsellor leaders. Our counsellors are all at least 16 years old and most are in university, college, or high school. They are all interviewed and screened before working at camp. In addition to our counsellors, we employ a dynamic senior staff including a licensed nurse, a program team, and child management supervisors. We also have a team of certified lifeguards and high ropes instructors. Hospitals and health clinics are only a short drive time away.
To further ensure the safety of our campers and staff, all campers are required to agree to and follow our Camper Code of Conduct.
At camp, we are committed to providing great meals for your children. We hire two cooks each summer, along with five kitchen assistants, who work hard to provide great meals to keep campers fuelled up with enough energy to get through the fun filled days! Each day we provide children with three full meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) with a nice dessert included with lunch and dinner! We also provide an evening snack.
We are conscious of different dietary needs and restrictions and do our best to accommodate any requests made. Please make sure to include specific dietary needs and restrictions on your application. We are usually able to accommodate but if, for any reason, we are unable to, we will let you know.
