Camp Davern

Camp Davern is located 20 minutes west of Perth, in Maberly, Ontario. Nestled on 100 acres of pines, hills, cedars and trails this all-girls overnight camp provides the perfect space for girls to develop the necessary decision-making and life skills to grow into confident young women.

Mentored by enthusiastic and charismatic staff, our campers are engaged in fun activities that challenge them to think critically and creatively, make thoughtful and caring decisions, and be agents of change. The Davern experience shapes girls who will respect differences, live with compassion, explore the natural world and realize their role in it. 

At Davern, campers can try new things, explore hidden talents and experience new challenges. From learning how to set up a shelter, paddling a canoe or kayak, singing at the campfire, or acting in a play on our outdoor stage - there is something for every girl at Davern.

It is our belief that every child and youth should have the opportunity to experience summer camp. The National Capital Region YMCA-YWCA is a charity and through the generosity of our donors we provide opportunities for children and youth to participate in summer camps that they might not otherwise be able to afford.
