Located on the rocky shores of Beausoleil Island in Georgian Bay Islands National Park, YMCA Camp Queen Elizabeth (CQE) is a leader in providing quality camping experiences for youth in a positive, supportive environment (since 1953). Through a wide range of activities, we encourage campers to challenge themselves and develop friendships that last a lifetime. Central to our program philosophy is the belief that spending time and having fun in an outdoor community creates an environment that allows participants to develop our five core values: Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Honesty, and Inclusiveness.
