FOCUS ON ABILITY
Camp Gencheff is located in Stratford, Prince Edward Island. We are situated upon 22 acres that overlooks the beautiful beach. This allows us to provide fun activities on site such as: going to the beach, campfires, outdoor play, and nature walks. Our facility is fully accessible for wheelchair users and provides dorm style accommodations to our campers. In each of our dorms, we have ceiling lifts above the beds, washroom and shower/changing area that allows campers who wheelchair users to safely use with trained staff. We also have standing lifts that can be moved in and out of the facility.
Fun in a Safe Environment!
Our camper to counselor ratio is 3 to 1. We provide this ratio for the safety of our campers. We have junior and senior counselors who work at camp during day and overnight. We also have health care workers who are at camp 24/7. Health care workers must be nursing students and working on 12 hour shifts. We have site supervisors who oversee staff and programming and work day to day with campers and staff. Finally we have cooks to cook nutritious meals provided to our campers, a maintenance person and camp manager to oversee all camp operations. Finally we have a board of directors who volunteer their time to work with management and oversee all aspects of Camp Gencheff.
"It is this kind of quality care from each position at Camp Gencheff that allows us to give campers the best camp experience."
We offer 8 weeks of summer camp that is designed by age group and are 6 days and 5 nights in length. Our campers arrive at 9:00 am on first day of camp and are to stay until 5:00 pm on the final day of camp. Our campers are organized by specific age, for example: one camp would be for ages 6-14 and another camp would be for ages 48-55. Campers are able to challenge themselves and become inspired by others through our creative and interactive programming. While we do maintain programming each day, we allow flexibility with each activity so campers always feel comfortable but also try to challenge themselves with something they may have never done before, ex: canoeing, swinging a baseball bat, hanging out with a friend. To some of our campers these are big milestones, and we are fortunate to be able to see campers accomplish things they may have never thought they could do before.
"We have programming designed to meet the needs and age groups of each of our campers."
