Forever memories are made here!
Canterbury Hills Camp is a place of joy, creativity, adventure, and belonging. Our leaders model and create a culture where people are free to be themselves and accomplish more than they thought possible. Campers can take on new challenges because they have leaders who care for them and believe in them. With leaders who give their best in cabins, forests, fields, pools, creeks, and dining halls, campers thrive.

Every camper is unique, so our leaders work hard to find the unique hopes, needs and dreams of every camper and every group. This effort requires ongoing teamwork, patience, listening and creativity. Some moments will be full of joy and wonder. Some moments will be puzzling, challenging or difficult. Through it all, leaders bring positive energy, excellence and dedication. To the campers, leaders are heroes who leave a lasting impression.
