Camp Kidston Logo

Camp Kidston, established in 1964 by the Halifax Presbytery of the United Church of Canada, is a year-round facility located on Long Lake. The facility is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors. We have been offering summer camps for children aged 6-17 since 1966. Situated on over 500 acres of woods and water in the northeast corner of Halifax Regional Municipality, it is the ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life!

Our summer camps include:

  • Lakeside supervised swimming and water activities
  • Canoeing
  • Campfires
  • Outtrips
  • Sports and Games
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Christian Development Program

To maintain the highest camping standards, Camp Kidston is accredited by both the United Church of Canada and the Camping Association of Nova Scotia. All our summer staff are hired by the Board of Directors and undergo thorough screening and training to ensure our campers have the best camping experience possible!

I was raised to volunteer: nursing homes, clinics, church nurseries, school, everywhere that could use help. It’s such an intrinsic part of me, to use my life to help improve the quality of others.
