Trent Excalibur Camp
Welcome to Trent Excalibur Summer Camp!
Trent Excalibur Summer Camp is an excellent environment for children to learn about teamwork, fair play and to grow as individuals and teams!
We are more than sports... we offer a unique and energetic summer experience of fun, friendship and adventure! We are an “Ontario Camps Association” accredited day camp at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. Since 1993, we have been a leader in providing traditional and innovative camp activities, caring leadership, and meaningful experiences to grow as individuals and teams.
Our camp is located on Trent University’s beautiful Symons Campus, along the banks of the Otonabee River. The natural setting of Trent’s approximately 1,400 acres of trees, open fields, streams, and lush forests provide a unique learning and recreational environment. The Athletics Centre is the hub of activity for all campers. Our air conditioned indoor facilities include a full-size gymnasium, 25-metre pool, large change rooms, squash courts, a climbing wall, a fitness centre, two dance/fitness rooms, a classroom, a rowing/paddling tank and our health care centre.
Trent Excalibur Summer Camp is more than just fun. Here at TEC, we believe camp can develop important skills including decision-making, problem solving, independence, teamwork, responsibility, and interpersonal skills. At TEC, we work hard to ensure that each camper has the opportunity to learn, grow and play each day.
WHY IS OUR CAMP DIFFERENT FROM THE REST?
We are an “Ontario Camps Association” accredited day camp and we are Camper Focused! It is a simple philosophy: we are here for the kids. All of our activities and programs are planned and delivered with the interests and needs of the campers in mind. We have accepted a very important responsibility. Parents want responsible role models for their children, campers want fun and enthusiastic counsellors who care about them, and other staff want supportive and caring colleagues!
Our Outstanding Staff: Many of our counsellors and instructors are enrolled in Trent University’s Bachelor of Education, Social Work, Nursing, and Biology Programs. All are certified in First Aid/CPR/AED, SafeTALK, and many are National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) certified in their sports. Our counsellors and instructors have extensive training and experience with sports, arts, sciences, and outdoor education. They all have strong backgrounds in the leadership of children and youth, and are committed to a safe, caring, and fun-filled camp experience. Additionally, our staff bring a strong sense of responsibility, professionalism, and commitment to their positions at camp.
Professional Camp Leaders: At TEC, we work on camp business year-round. Camp is our job, and we work hard at it each and every day! Our Director works full-time at the Athletic Centre at Trent University, so drop by for a visit or tour anytime.
Time to Learn and Grow: Campers need time to become comfortable with their surroundings and their leaders, and lots of time to learn and practice different skills. Therefore, our camp programs are two weeks long, which differ from traditional one week formats. Our two-week sessions provide campers with the time they need to develop relationships with staff, make friends, and learn and master new skills.
Modern Facilities in a Natural Environment: At TEC you get the best of both! Here at the Trent Athletics Centre, our indoor and outdoor facilities make up a wonderful camp environment. Campers enjoy clean and well-maintained buildings, and approximately 1,400 acres of forests, trails, and fields. Trent University is located outside the city core, and the Otonabee River provides a beautiful environment for water-based activities at our camp.
We are proud of the amazing reputation we have in the area of being THE summer camp of choice and are happy to answer any questions and talk to you further about why to choose TEC for you and your family.
