Our Camp welcomes children and teens of all religious, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. 

COVID-19 Update:

Posted May 19, 2020,

Last Friday the Province announced that the current emergency measures, including the need for social distancing, will continue until May 31st.

In addition last week, the NS Provincial Health Officer, Karen Wong-Petrie, Director, NS Environmental Health & Food Safety send a letter to NS Summer Overnight Camp Operators to provide an update on whether or not the Province will allow their camps to open this coming summer. She indicated that,

“Given the nature of recreational camp activities and operations, which includes several nights of accommodation for staff and campers, it would be very difficult to maintain the current public health measures that are in place.” and that, “it is not likely that recreational camp programs regulated by the NS Recreational Camp Regulations will be able to proceed for the 2020 season.”

However, she also indicated that a final decision on re-opening summer camps will be made later in May or early June.

So, at this point, it seems highly unlikely that we will be able to open and operate our Camp this coming summer. This is indeed sad news as all our staff was so looking forward to seeing all our campers again this summer at our new camp location.

So once we receive the final decision from the Province, we will immediately let all our campers’ parents and guardians know what that final decision is and if there is any chance we can indeed open and operate later in August at our new camp location near Digby, NS.

In the meantime, we hope and pray for the safety and well being of all our campers & staff as well as their families during these difficult days.

And please call us at 902-220-3280 or email us at camp@venturepartner.ca if you have any questions!
