Camp Presqu'ile

2021 Camp Closed Due to COVID-19

Camp Presqu'ile is closed for the 2021 camp season due to the COVID-19 situation in Ontario. It is a difficult situation, and although we will miss seeing all our campers this summer, the safety of our participants and staff is our utmost priority. Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times.

The Owen Sound Rotary Club has worked in partnership with the YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce over the past 60 years to develop and deliver this overnight summer camp for youth aged 6-16. Generations of people have made wonderful memories at Camp Presqu’ile, as campers, staff and visitors.

Located North West of the city of Owen Sound, Camp Presqu’ile covers 14 acres of beautiful land on Georgian Bay. Amenities include a swimming pool, 500 meters of water front, a fleet of water craft, low ropes challenge course, archery range, soccer pitch, comfortable cabins and washrooms, and a dining hall that seats 200+ campers.

Camp Presqu’ile is accessible to all.
We are proud to welcome campers with unique needs. With one-on-one support buddies, campers have the freedom they need to enjoy their experience with the safety and security of a friend right beside them. Please contact the camp if you are considering this program and we would be happy to assist you in the registration process.

At the YMCA, we believe every family should be able to send their kids to camp. Financial assistance is available. Registration, dates, fees and more details can be found on the website.
