Kids Thrive at Camp

For decades Lumsden Beach Camp has provided fun and friendship through our summer camp programming. Memories are made, children grow independent and confident, and a community is built because LBC is able to offer subsidized camper fees for hundreds of children each summer.

This is made possible because of you.

Your, tax creditable donation goes directly to keeping children swimming, singing and learning in a safe space, cared for by exceptional staff.

You will agree that all children - regardless of religion, sexual orientation, gender expression or financial situation - benefit by spending time outside, in community, challenging themselves and having fun.  

Children who attend Lumsden Beach Camp benefit in a variety of ways. Not only do we witness this in campers each summer, but it is backed by research (read more about the Canadian Summer Camp Research Project).

Thank you for your generosity in supporting this life-changing work. Your donation goes directly to offering great programming and improving infrastructure, as well as reducing financial barriers so all kids can camp at LBC.


Eating is more than just fueling up, and this is especially true at summer Lumsden Beach Camp. Campers sit family style, passing bread, and building community. Meals are prepared to be healthy, delicious, and to please discerning young palates. At any given meal there will be singing, silliness, and friendships being forged. Many camp traditions and events are food-focused, which has led to the dining hall being the center of camp life.

At Lumsden Beach Camp we are proud to welcome children, youth, and families to our site regardless of race, economic status, religion, gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity. Our inclusive programs, the focus on building strong leaders, and LBC's truly beautiful location in the valley are some of the reasons our camp is growing! Which is why we need to replace our current dining facilities.

The current building is over 70 years old and has reached is structural maturity, plus our growing camper numbers mean that the community no longer comfortably fits in the space. The new building, will be nearly double the size and include amenities like air conditioning, modern appliances, and a dishwasher.

Your gift to this project will helps this new building become reality.
