Our History

Camp Weredale has a long and storied history which began in 1934 when the camp opened as “a summer home away from home” for the boys of Weredale House.

In the 1980s, it became a special needs camp for both boys and girls from the Youth Horizons Reception Centre.

In the 1990s, it began to operate in the winter as well and for the first time offered programs of support to foster children and families in addition to the regular camp programs.

Today, Camp Weredale no longer offers a winter camp, but it still caters primarily to the Batshaw Youth and Family Centres during the summer months.
