Unfortunately due to the ongoing pandemic and current government regulations, we have made the heart-breaking decision to cancel the summer camping program for 2020. Have a safe and healthy year, and we will see you all in 2021!
To find information about our summer camping program for 2020, click one of the links below. Some general information about the camping program is also included on this page.
The Burry Heights Camp and Retreat Center was officially opened on March 21st, 1982. It is located approximately one kilometer south of the Trans-Canada Highway on Salmonier Line (Exit 35). Each summer the Burry Heights Board of Directors organizes a series of camps which are supported by the United Church, however campers from all denominations are welcome to attend. All camps are 5 days long, beginning on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. and ending at 12:00 p.m. on Friday.
These camps are an excellent way to make new friends, enjoy the outdoor experience and just have fun! For information on camper, volunteer, or staff applications, as well as the summer camp schedule, please click the links above.
Camp activities may vary from age to age, but generally includes activities such as:
Arts and Crafts
Sports and Large Group Activities
A Talent Show
and LOTS more !
What to Bring
Each camper is responsible for the following:
Enough Clothing for a Week
In addition, campers can bring supplies for the talent show and themed meals as they please. Each camp also includes a special dinner and dance; please feel free to bring items needed for these events as well.
What NOT to Bring
These items can create difficulties for the counselors at camp in terms of security, as well as pose a threat to individuals with allergies. The prohibition of these items is strictly enforced. Burry Heights is not reponsible for loss or damage to any item that is brought to camp.
Burry Heights is also a tobacco, alcohol and drug-free facility. Individuals caught with either of these will be sent home at the expense of the parent/guardian without a refund.
The Camp Director (with permission from the Board of Directors) reserves the right to dismiss a camper, who in his/her opinion, has displayed unacceptable behaviour and/or has not complied with the rules of the camp.
