Check out the YMCA's awesome camp at Point Pelee National Park!
The first of its kind in the area, Camp Henry is a place where kids can be themselves, make new friends, and tackle new adventures. No matter their interest or ability, Henry has something for everyone. Around the campfire and on the hiking trail, your child will build memories and confidence that lasts, supported by the Y's highly trained and caring staff.

COVID-19 Updates for the 2021 Season
It is with a very heavy heart that we are announcing we must cancel all YMCA Camp Henry summer camp programs for 2021. This includes both our overnight and day camp programs.
Our first priority at the YMCA has always been to keep our campers, families, staff, and communities safe, and this remains the primary focus in all of our decisions. Being this close to the summer season with current provincial guidelines not yet permitting overnight camps to operate, the logistics of opening and preparing our site and programs, as well as managing other obstacles caused by the pandemic, it is now clear that we are unable to deliver a traditional camp experience this summer to our campers. This is a huge loss to all of our campers, families, staff, and community. We understand how much camp means to all of you and we know the disappointment that this decision brings. We share your disappointment and want you to know we have not made this decision lightly.
We are proud to share that with our Camp Henry spirit we have developed the following plans to ensure we are still there for you.
For our campers: Join us online for activities, videos, nature resources, and more throughout the summer. We will be posting on Facebook and Instagram twice a week to keep the camp spirit alive.
For our leadership participants: We will be offering a 4-part Leadership Challenge Series throughout the summer. Stay tuned for more information about signup, program details, prizes and more.
oTENTik rental through Parks Canada: We have arranged a special opportunity with Point Pelee National Park for camper families to rent one of Camp Henry’s oTENTiks for a self-guided experience in the National Park. For more information about oTENTik rentals and visiting Point Pelee National Park please check out their website.
