The Ideal Location for a Canadian Summer Camp
Just over 2.5 hours from Toronto, the South Bruce Peninsula is the perfect location for campers to escape the city and truly experience an Ontario summer camp experience. The Elite Camps Outdoor Leadership Centre is a 75 acre property and has it all; basketball courts overlooking the lake, a stunning waterfront, newly constructed air-conditioned cabins and an assortment of outdoor land and waterfront activities
Our beautiful waterfront is nestled in a bay of Berford lake, giving us a natural shelter for our busy waterfront, where campers swim, kayak, paddle board, canoe, water ski, play beach volleyball and hang out with friends.
The Dining Hall
The Dining Hall serves as our social center and dining room. Meals are provided by professional caterers who specialize in serving the summer camp community. Our chef prepares well-balanced meals that are served family style and are all you can eat.
The majority of our basketball programming takes place on our five brand new outdoor courts that overlook the lake. The courts are equipped with state-of-the-art surfacing and top of the line nets with glass backboards.
Indoor Athletic Centre
Our Indoor Athletic Centre ensures that our basketball programming can continue indoors in inclement weather.
Outdoor Activity Facilities
There are a number of outdoor land activities spread throughout camp including our climbing wall, beach volleyball court, designated swimming/beach front areas, archery, yoga pavilion, and a large playing field used for a variety of activities.
Campers live in our newly constructed cabins housing between 12-14 campers. Each cabin is supervised by two to three coaches who sleep in the cabin. Every cabin at Elite Camps has washrooms with flush toilets and hot and cold running showers. All cabins are equipped with air conditioners to keep our athletes comfortable.
The water for the entire camp is filtered from the lake through a commercial UV water system and is very safe to drink. Water testing is done daily to monitor chlorine levels and ensure the water’s safety at all times. In the event of a power outage, the facility has a generator backup for the main dining hall and kitchen facilities, as well as the treated water system and main camp office. The entire water system is inspected by the Ministry of Environment (MOE).
Located at the Elite Camps Outdoor Leadership Centre, our Hoop Dreams Overnight Camp offers a premier basketball experience in a beautiful summer camp setting.
