Welcome to Glen Bernard Summer Camp for Girls
Glen Bernard Camp is one of Ontario's premier summer camps for girls and Outdoor Education Centres for co-ed school groups. Located just north of Huntsville and 6 km west of Algonquin Park in Ontario, GBC is ideally situated on 700 acres of land with a kilometer of safe shoreline along the east side of Lake Bernard.
Glen Bernard was founded in 1922 and has an established reputation of helping girls develop self-confidence and independence. Each day is filled with opportunities to challenge campers of all ages and skill levels. Our wide variety of activities creates endless possibilities of new choices. Campers participate in the following activities: canoeing, kayaking, sailing, boardsailing, theatre, rock climbing, high ropes, low ropes, mountain biking, horseback riding, trampoline, canoe trips, arts & crafts, tennis, archery, golf and more!
Glen Bernard is a leader in environmental education. Our significant commitment to teaching environmental sustainability is demonstrated by the use of solar energy, composting toilets, energy efficient lighting and a solar boat. Our earth education program and activities take place in state-of-the art, solar powered buildings which allow campers to interact and learn about sustainable technologies and our relationship with the natural world. We feel it is important to help young people understand our impact on the earth and to learn how to take action to use it wisely. Our slogan "live lightly" applies both to the atmosphere of fun and the commitment we share to care for the earth.
