Welcome to Camp Sheldrick!

(Located in Winchester, Ontario)

Camp Sheldrick is located on the Nation River at Hess Creek North, and is suitable for all age groups! The property is 55 acres consisting primarily of a meadow with a small wooded area, and groomed sites on the south side of Hess Creek (which flows through the site) each with their own firepit.

There is wilderness camping on the north side of the creek with water access to the Nation River (via Hess Creek) for canoe tripping. Camp Sheldrick also offers a dining shelter, an outdoor chapel, a large council fire circle, kybos, and a camping area.
