We are proud to have created a unique atmosphere where everyone is considered family and friendships and memories last a lifetime!

our goals

We believe in the importance of being a kid. Campers at Canyon Creek will feel supported to be their true selves and explore the world around them without hesitation or scrutiny. We offer a uniquely personal camp experience through dedication to our camp families, and steadfast commitment to our campers.


Canyon Creek Summer Camp provides a safe, non-competitive environment where boys and girls build confidence and independence, learn teamwork, and develop problem-solving skills.
