We are a Registered Charity, who own 73 acres of beautiful forest in the Midhurst area.  We have been working for almost two years to open a youth/seniors/family campground on the property which features six themed campsites.  Kanata, which has five teepees, Georgian which his five military garrisons, Prospector with five Yukon cabins, Adirondack which has five trapper shanties, Pioneer with five covered wagons, and Wendake with three magnificent longhouses.  We also have a site for ordinary tent camping, or overflow, and a renovated school portable which contains fridges, stove, an office, and is the camp Emergency Shelter and first aid headquarters.  There is a landline phone, wifi, a computer and heat/air conditioning in this building.  Our purpose is to celebrate Canada’s rich cultural heritage, and our beautiful natural environment.  We aim to teach respect for all things living green, and for nature all around us.  Teaching respect for the past and the present will naturally carry forward in the minds of our guests to make great citizens of our communities in the future.
