Camp Heidelberg   |   9 - 12 years

A.R. Kaufman Family YMCA, Kitchener
Stork Family YMCA, Kitchener

Heidelberg campers participate in a variety of traditional camp activities such as archery, games, and outdoor challenges.  Heidelberg campers can be dropped off and picked up at both our Stork Family YMCA in Waterloo as well as the AR Kaufman Family YMCA in Kitchener.  Each morning at 9:00am the campers are bussed from their home YMCA to our Heidelberg location just outside Waterloo.  Our large open field space, pavillon and forest area allows this older age group to explore the outdoors.  Campers are bussed back each day to their home YMCA for an hour of swim time.  

Note:  Campers who are 8 years old turning 9 years old in this year and entering Grade 4 are welcome.

Thursday nights, families are invited to Camp Heidelberg to see the site and participate in a counselor-led campfire.  This optional evening program will include songs, skits and smores for the whole family. Meet the counselors and see the site between 7:30-8:00pm with campfire to follow.

Attention returning Heidelberg Campers and Parents: Due to a decrease in sleepover participation numbers over the past three summers, we have made the difficult decision to remove the optional sleepover at Camp Heidelberg. Campers and their families are still invited out to our Thursday night Campfire to meet our counselors, tour the site, sing camp songs, and enjoy s 'mores!
