And Why We Love Camp
Founded in 1939, Forest Cliff Camp has been providing unforgettable and life-impacting camp experiences for over 70 years.
Forest Cliff Camps Inc. is a registered non-profit Charitable organization governed by a Board of Directors.
Forest Cliff Camp's vision is to be a pioneering ministry and indispensable partner in changing young lives.
More Than Just Camp!
Forest Cliff draws kids away from the routine of daily life and puts them in a new environment with unique experiences that offer growth, independence and discovery.
We focus on building intentional, caring relationships between our counsellors and your kids.
It’s through these encouraging and motivating relationships that kids develop a sense of belonging, learn more about themselves and God and grow into their true potential!
