Outdoor Camps at Black Creek Pioneer Village

Young imaginations come to life in the historic surroundings of Black Creek Pioneer Village, an authentic recreation of a 19th century rural Ontario community.

In groups of 10, campers will enjoy a safe and fun-filled experience in their very own private area of the Village!

Participants receive an information package upon registration to help them prepare for their adventure — including instructions for how to put together their own 1800s outfit, and how to pack lunches and snacks that would have been eaten long ago.

Registration for Black Creek’s 2022 summer camps is now open. Please be sure to sign up for TRCA’s camp newsletter to get all the latest updates!
