At Pearce Williams 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.

World Camp & Farm Camp Programs

World Camp & Farm Camp

Experiential education that will change the world

World Camp

Poverty in our own backyard. If our children are our future, they are the cycle-breakers this world needs.

World Camp is a ground-breaking program that will allow participants to experience what poverty looks like around the world and how to start to change the effects poverty can have.  This immersive experience places participants in huts and buildings from different locations around the world to show how others live. This creates a new, empathetic, perspective on how they can help others both locally and globally. For children, youth and adults – this program will change the way that they see the world and their place in it.

Every week, Pearce Williams campers have the opportunity to experience our Immersive Night program. For an entire afternoon, campers experience first hand the importance of food-security, cultural connection and global cooperation. Time and time again, campers tell us that this program was the highlight of their entire week.

World Camp Week will be held again during the Summer of 2018.  Be one of the first to experience this amazing look into poverty around the world.  This was a great success last year and the campers who took part said that it changed their lives.  


World Camp is a program that every child/person should experience.

Farm Camp

For most of us, growing food seems unattainable due to lack of land and resources. Farm Camp teaches participants and community members how to grow their own food and become more self-sufficient.  Farm Camp is a community experience – offering teaching and learning opportunities to the entire community of Elgin-St. Thomas and beyond.  Through sharing of the knowledge it will enable the community to learn and grow.

We use small scale methods of growing food like forest gardening, square foot, straw bale and container gardening. Our teaching gardens serve as a model and resource to teach our campers and community members as well as returning biodiversity to our area.

The food our campers grow in the gardens is used throughout our camp program. From snacking on fresh snap-peas in the salad bar, to making home-made currant jelly, to crunching into a juicy english cucumber, Farm Camp at Pearce Williams is truly a "Farm to Table" experience!

Whether you live on a Farm, in a house, or In An apartment. Farm camp can teach you to grow your own food.
