General Information

YW Kitchener-Waterloo has operated a traditional, nature-based day camp for children in the Region for more than 80 years. Campers are bused daily to Camp Clover, which is located in the countryside outside of Bamberg on acres of property owned by the K-W Optimist Club.

Campers enjoy traditional camp activities:

  • Canoeing, kayaking, and swimming in the natural, spring-fed pond
  • Building sand castles and creature questing at the waterfront
  • Archery, campfires, sports, and games in the field
  • Hiking and exploring in the forest
  • Learning camping skills and camp songs
  • Making new friends and having fun!

In addition to these core camp activities, our camp leaders chose weekly themes and plan additional activities to add extra fun to your child’s camp experience. The themes can be found here: 2019 Camp Clover Themes 

Campers are divided into groups according to age:

  • Seekers – 5 years
  • Explorers – 6 to 9 years
  • Adventurers – 10 to 11 years
  • Navigators – 12 to 13 years

All YW Camp Clover staff are over the age of 18. Like many of our campers, many of our staff return year after year!
