Trips

Camp Day Trips

Trip day is every Wednesday of the summer (except for Week 5 – August 5).

* Trips are tentative at this time and subject to change as we may change dates or add some new destinations this year. Please check back in mid-late May for firm plans. Even when finalized, there are times when we need to change a trip (e.g. we find out swimming won’t be available at Binbrook Conservation Area). If that happens we will inform you with as much notice as possible.*

** We do not offer alternative programming on trip days. For swimming, the whole camp swims together. Counsellors are always in the deepest part of the pool or swimming area, and form a perimeter around the campers. Our camp takes a part of the pool where there are not many people (or no one) and we all stay together, so campers are under constant supervision. The youngest campers are limited to a shallow part of the swimming area. If campers do not want to swim, there is lots of beach and/or grassy area for them to play games! Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. **

Binbrook Conservation Area

Potential Dates

Binbrook Conservation Area offers a tremendous variety of outdoor activities for campers to enjoy. Binbrook has a beach, hiking trails, playgrounds, and more. “A day at Binbrook is like a day at the cottage, but close to home. The swimming beach, spray pad, play area and picnic facilities make for a full day of fun. Explore nature on the trails and from observation platforms and see if you can spot some of the local wildlife.

Bronte Creek Provincial Park

Potential Dates

Week 3: July 20 – 24, Week 7: August 17-21

No summer at KidQuest Camp would be complete without a visit to beautiful Bronte Creek Provincial Park. Bronte Creek is a place full of colour, activity, and life. At Bronte Creek, the trails are numerous and unique in their flora and fauna. The play barn provides an excellent opportunity for children to run, climb, slide, and play in a barnyard setting. There are goats to feed and pet, ducks to observe, and an outdoor pool to swim in. No trip to Bronte Creek is complete without our annual LEGENDARY HIDE N’SEEK game.
