Family Camps

Please note: All June and July events (including Children’s Camps and Youth Programs) have been cancelled. Please read our COVID-19 Statement here.

A family camper enjoys a refreshing dip in one of Unicamp’s streams.

Family Camp is a time for families to enjoy campfires, hikes, Talent Night, Comedy Night, swimming, our famous Wednesday Candlelight Dinners and much more.  Parents: relax while your children aged 3 to 12 enjoy 2.5 hours of staff-led programming from 9:30 to noon ($15 per child per morning, includes a snack). This can be booked, at least a week in advance, through our online booking site, or by e-mailing If you require additional childcare, talk to the staff member at the Welcome Centre or email Camp Director Michelle McComb at

Unicamp is an affordable place for families to vacation and we offer great family discounts in our dining hall. Families taking meals get a 10% discount with their second child and subsequent children eat free. Meals for children under 5 continue to be free.
