Camps for Teens offered at Ontario Pioneer Camp
Genesis (Ages 14-17)
A weeklong co-ed program designed to take you out of your comfort zone and into the wilderness as God created it. The small group setting of Genesis creates a more intense program that puts a focus on community and teamwork. Campers will have the opportunity to go mountain biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, rappelling, and horseback riding throughout the week.
Crew 252 (Ages 14-17)
This unique week-long or two week-long co-ed program that combines working at camp ( prepare food, clean, and maintain the grounds) with lots of opportunity to get out and play (rock climbing, high ropes swimming, and biking). Campers get the opportunity to grow in leadership from an experiential standpoint and while doing so, collecting credits that count towards the OSSD’s required 40 hours of mandatory community service.
Woodlands Challenge (Ages 15-17)
Woodlands is not your average camp experience!! These four weeks will challenge you physically, build lasting friendships and learn more about God amidst his creations. This camp includes our longest canoe trips, so get ready to be immersed in the wilderness sleeping under the stars and cooking over a fire!
