The year-round Mission of Cave Springs Camp, Retreat & Conference Centre is to provide opportunities for personal growth in a natural setting.
What is Cave Springs Camp?
Cave Springs Camp is a United Church Camp, offering a unique summer camp experience since 1951. In more recent years, we have broadened our offerings to suit greater community needs. We are pleased to offer year-round community rental space
The camp is guided and supported by a dedicated group of volunteers that form the Board of Directors; highly qualified and enthusiastic summer staff; and volunteers from the local community and area churches. Cave Springs Camp is an accredited member of the Ontario Camping Association (OCA) and the United Church of Canada Outdoor Ministries (UCOM).
Cave Springs Camp is located on the Niagara Escarpment in Beamsville, Ontario which is 20 minutes from St Catharines, 40 minutes from Hamilton and 1 hour from Toronto. Additionally, we are nestled in the midst of the beautiful Carolinian forest with a trailhead access to the Bruce Trail. We also offer a canoe program which runs out of Jordan Harbour.

Summer Camp Programs
In the months of July and August, we offer 7 weeks of camp programs including Overnight Camp, Bridge Camp, Day Camp, Integration and SLP (Servanthood Leadership Program).
We offer exciting school trip options for students in kindergarten through grade 12. Our trips are customized to suit the ages of the students as well as the wants of their teachers. We offer activities that teach students about nature, navigation and team building. Students can also participate in physical activity such as hiking, sports or games. A school trip with us is a great way to combine fun and learning in an outdoor setting!
School trips can either be day trips or overnight trips where students will sleep in our on-site accommodations and eat meals provided by our kitchen staff. For more information, visit the School Programs section of our website.
