Unlike many big box camps, our focus is helping our campers build self-confidence, promoting self-esteem and developing positive peer interaction with a Christian environment. Lambton Centre is the place where kids learn about who they are, and are challenged to strengthen themselves in both body and spirit. Lambton Centre provides one of the finest, most affordable and fun camping experiences in Southwestern Ontario! We blend traditional programs – swimming, archery, crafts and campfires – with new activities like low ropes, claymation and GagaBall! All programs focus on discovering the natural world while helping young people learn more about themselves.

Founded in 1962 as the Lambton United Church Camp, Lambton Centre Summer Camp is affiliated with the United Church of Canada but all of our summer camp programs are open to the public regardless of religion or spiritual beliefs, race, class, gender, sexual orientation, or physical ability.
