Since 1948 Rideau Hill Camp has offered a fun-filled camping experience in a Christian-based environment.
A volunteer Camp Council administers Rideau Hill Camp. The property is in trust to the Seaway Valley Presbytery of the United Church of Canada. Campers from all denominations are welcome to attend. Although there is a Chaplain on the premises, there are no church services held during camp. Vespers and Discovery Time, are the standard.
Our camp is located at 3560 Rideau River Rd. RR 5, Kemptville, Ontario. The 18-acre site includes wooded areas with trails, grassy fields and river frontage.
The purpose of Rideau Hill Camp is character enrichment through living, sharing, and developing within a Christian based environment. Our carefully chosen staff includes health staff, chaplains, a canoe instructor, qualified lifeguards, and a cook. Nutritious meals and snacks are served in the dining hall with provisions for our vegetarian campers.
Five to ten campers age 6 – 16 stay in spacious cabins with an activity leader and one other staff. Parent & Tots/Family Campers share cabins with their family or their friends. Our daily staff to camper ratio while not in cabins is between 1:5 and 1:8 depending on age. Some of our facilities include a recreation hall, dining hall, swimming pool, beach volleyball court, and trails throughout our managed forest to name just a few. Campers enjoy activities such as arts & crafts, track & trail, discovery time, vespers, canoeing on the Rideau River and swimming in the pool as well as archery and other organized games that keep bringing our campers and a good number of staff members back year after year.
