Questions? Sending your child to camp can be a big step, especially if it's for the first time. Camp is an exciting and fun-filled place with new friends, spaces,  adventures, and experiences. Here are answers to the top questions about camp, based on the Y’s 70 years of camping experience. 

Being Safe

All of our counsellors have current First Aid, CPR, and YMCA Healthy Child Development training. During activities, staff carry first aid kits to ensure that bumps, scrapes and bruises can be taken care of immediately.

Fitting In

Camp Henry is a positive space where people of any background, belief, ability are welcomed and respected. Our staff are trained and experienced in providing high quality care for our campers and ensuring that the needs of each camper are met. 

Feeling Comfortable 

While camp offers opportunities for close friendships and new group skills, young people can react to these changes in many different ways. At Camp Henry it is our goal to provide a safe, comfortable and supportive environment for each camper. 

Missing Home

Campers may go through a period of homesickness as they adjust to camp. Our camp staff know how to detect early symptoms of homesickness and receive training on how to help children feel comfortable.
