At Pearce Williams Christian Centre Summer Camp & Retreat Facility, our aim is to provide the best summer camp experience for your child.  Pearce Williams strives to do this in a non-competitive, caring way, allowing your child to discover the world around them, while promoting success, self-confidence and self-esteem in a safe, secure and stimulating environment, while living and growing within our Christian community.

The emphasis is always on participation, effort and attitude!  We feel that camp is a unique place where every child can be a winner.  We provide campers with the opportunity to become part of a family, where they can take healthy risks, get rewarded for successes and develop self-esteem and life skills.  In the meantime they will learn about independence, interdependence, tolerance, responsibility, friendship and loyalty.

It is at summer camp that they learn to take risks, learn to resolve conflicts in a natural manner, learn to appreciate and protect our environment, learn to stay healthy, learn to be responsible for their personal belongings, and learn to have fun with unabashed enthusiasm.

Teacher Resources

Dear Teachers

We are so excited that you are looking into coming out to Pearce Williams Christian Centre for a day trip or an overnight trip.  The staff here at PWCC are always excited to see both new and old faces, especially after a long winter away from camp!

Our programs run rain or shine.  Do not think that your class will miss out on an experience because of the weather.  Our staff do their best to follow your program selections no matter the weather.  So come prepared to have fun no matter what the weather is doing!

Here at PWCC we often “take to the woods”.  If you have a student who has special accessibility needs, please let us know in advance so we can plan your program appropriately. 

We want to help you through your planning process as much as we can.  Please call the office at 519-764-2317 and we will gladly answer any questions you have!

Please read below to find your program selection sheet, expectations, and other notes.

LUNCHES AND SNACKS

If you are attending a day program, please note that PWCC does not supply lunches or snacks.  If you wish to cook your lunch over a campfire, we can accommodate that.

If you are attending an overnight program, PWCC does not supply lunch or snacks on the first day.  You can check out our menu options here.

EXPECTATIONS

Our goal is to provide everyone with an amazing experience.  In order for this amazing experience to happen, we need help from teachers and volunteers.

If attending a day program it is the responsibility of the teachers and volunteers to:

  •  Handle behavior issues – the PWCC staff is there to lead programs for the entire group.  If the program is disrupted by one individual, the PWCC staff is responsible for ensuring the program continues to run.  They are not responsible for that one disruptive individual
  • Supervise at the lunch break – the PWCC staff will provide students with balls, Frisbees, etc., but then must go eat their own lunches and ensure that program equipment is set up for the afternoon activities.
  • Have a vehicle on site in case of emergency(not required but suggested)

If attending an overnight program it is the responsibility of the teachers and volunteers to:

  • Handle behavior issues – the PWCC staff is there to lead programs for the entire group.  If the program is disrupted by one individual, the PWCC staff is responsible for ensuring the program continues to run.  They are not responsible for that one disruptive individual
  • Supervise at the lunch break – the PWCC staff will provide students with balls, Frisbees, etc., but then must go eat their own lunches and ensure that program equipment is set up for the afternoon activities.
  • After 9:00 pm the PWCC staff do not run program – teachers and chaperones are responsible for students during the night.  There are no separate sleeping quarters for teachers/chaperones.
  • Stay on site – as stated above, teachers and chaperones are responsible for behavior.  If any  teachers/chaperones leave, this requirement is not being met.
