About Us

  • Located on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula, Camp Celtic is 200 acres of playing fields and wilderness. With these facilities, as well as access to a pristine sand beach on Lake Huron, we deliver superior quality programs in land and water sports, media and performing arts, outdoor adventure, environmental education and leadership. Established in 1984, we are a family-run, non-denominational camp for both boys and girls from the ages of 6-18. We and our dedicated staff promise exceptional care and instruction for campers in an outdoor, technology-free, safe and accepting environment where great memories and friendships abound.

    Our full-time endeavour is to provide top-notch instruction and leadership for campers from around the province.

    The adventure of attending camp presents a great opportunity to grow. It is important then, that Celtic and other camps go a bit beyond their instructional role and try to increase campers’ insight, awareness, and appreciation of self and nature.

    Our promise to parents and coaches is that we will provide Celtic’s campers the very best camp experience possible.


    The Camp Celtic campground is 200 acres of playing fields, buildings, forest, rock and wetlands. Surrounding Celtic in all directions is undeveloped wilderness forest. The beach facility is Sandy Beach which is found within the boundaries of the Black Creek Provincial Park. The clean, sand bottom beach is an ideal location to swim and learn to sail or paddle.

    Our facilities include modern, serviced bunkhouses, central washrooms, a quality kitchen and dining facility large enough for the entire camp, and a well equipped infirmary with a registered nurse.

    Our sports facilities include full size outdoor basketball and tennis courts, an indoor facility for all-weather playing, a regulation soccer pitch, seventeen turf volleyball courts and sand courts, a ropes course and climbing walls, an archery range, and a driving range.

    Our watersports programme includes CL 14 sailboats and a fleet of Kayaks and Windsurfers with undersized rigging for the beginner.

    We also have an outdoor stage, a radio broadcasting station, and a resource hut for environmental studies and camp crafts.

    Faculty and Staff

    Celtic’s instructional and counselling staff are selected for their leadership ability, skills, and experience. Where applicable, our programme directors are professionals who have achieved provincial and national recognition in their fields.

    Pre-camp training for counselling staff deals with common problems experienced by campers, especially younger and first time campers. We place great emphasis on our staff’s ability to set a good example and to become close friends and mentors to the campers entrusted to their care.

    Our registered nurse works closely with in-cabin counsellors to ensure camper care and safety. Celtic is located within minutes of medical care at Lion’s Head Hospital, 10km from camp.
