Our Facilities

Our camp offers the best of both worlds: a country environment in the heart of the city. The secure, leafy campus of Bayview Glen Independent School give us all-day access to a wealth of facilities while the wonders of our ravine keep campers close to nature every day. Our natural setting lets campers safely experience the great outdoors while inspiring them to respect nature.

Our Caring Community

More than a camp; we are a community. What makes Bayview Glen Camp such
a special place are the connections formed between campers and counsellors. Every summer, we welcome more than 1,000 families from the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.

Our Staff

We carefully select 450 experienced staff each year, including counsellors, lifeguards, specialists, supervisors and nurses. Our staff go through a diligent screening process which selects for critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication, problem solving and a genuine interest motivating and inspiring children. Our caring, nurturing staff helps ensure that camp is always safe for our campers and that their experience is nothing short of amazing.
