At Bayside Camp we want our campers to feel safe and comfortable during their stay. All of our cabins are staffed by a Senior and Junior Leader to guide them throughout the week.
These leaders are specifically chosen and trained to create lasting memories together as a cabin group, leading in activities, discussion and facilitating the Bayside Camp experience.
All of our staff undergo an extensive interview, training and appropriate record checks prior to being hired.

Theres so much to do at BAYSIDE CAMP!
Each of our beautiful cabins has two bathrooms so there’s no late night walks!
Facilities and equipment are inspected constantly and kept in check with all applicable regulations.
At Bayside Camp we welcome guests from all faiths and walks of life.
We aim to create a non-threatening environment where your child can explore questions of faith and discover the story of God’s amazing love for them.
Each day features a Worship at the Cove session with upbeat engaging music and age appropriate teaching.
There is also Cabin Connection time where cabin groups can ask questions about what they’ve heard or experienced during the week.
At Bayside Camp, health and safety is a top priority. We want each child to feel safe and secure so that they can fully enjoy their time at camp.
We ask each camper to fill out a detailed medical form, as well as check in personally with our trained First Aid and Nursing staff upon arrival.
Prescriptions, medications, allergies, and any other concerns are taken care of so that you can rest easy, we believe in keeping very open communication with parents regarding any health or behavioural issues.
Food is always one of the most important parts of camp and we believe in providing quality food and plenty of it! Following the Canada Food Guide healthy and delicious home-style meals are prepared daily and served cafeteria style.
Vegetarian and gluten free options can be provided, and we seek to meet special needs.
While we cannot guarantee a nut free facility, Bayside makes every effort to be nut-free in our kitchen and tuck shop and asks all guests and campers to help by not bringing any nut products on site.
While we make every effort to honour multiple cabin mate requests only one cabin-mate request is guaranteed.
**Please note mutual requests must be made by both campers at least two weeks before camp.

Bayside is a non-profit, year-round Christian camp and retreat centre conveniently located minutes just outside Halifax. As a Christian ministry, we believe the Bible offers relevant truth for everyday life and that’s why it has been the source of our teaching for almost 60 years.
We also believe people need to hear this truth from friends in the midst of a caring, safe environment and that’s why we pay close attention when selecting each member of our staff team (from those counseling to cleaning and everyone in between).
Each summer we welcome hundreds of campers from all walks of life to experience the wonder and adventure of a week at camp with us.
At no point will your child be pressured to profess Christian faith; however, we do incorporate biblical principles and age-appropriate teaching into all programming.
