Our Mission

At the Cairn Family of Camps, we don’t think it’s enough to just offer fun programming. We’re involved in camping because we believe that camp is an amazing life-changing experience. Our mission is to grown leaders by providing all campers the opportunity to build confidence and courage within a supportive environment.

For 85 years through adventure, creativity and play, Cairn’s qualified staff have provided an atmosphere which fosters the personal and spiritual growth of every individual. Cairn is a place where lifelong friendships are formed, leadership skills are learnt, and all people are welcomed into an inclusive community.

We believe that every child should be able to experience the life-changing power of camp. Through your donations we will be able to ensure that happens.
