The Camp George Landscape
Camp George is located in the scenic Muskoka Region of Ontario, known for its beautiful lakes, historic Canadian Shield, and lush forests. We are situated on a unique peninsula, allowing us to offer a diverse range of programming.
Being at one with the amazing Northern Ontario terrain helps to make the Camp George experience unforgettable. Beautiful woodland, extensive hiking trails, a sparkling waterfront, glorious sunsets, and starry nights along with 200 acres to run and play, makes Camp George a summer wonderland.
With more than 30 buildings and various outdoor spaces, there is always a space for everyone at Camp George!
The main lodge is home to our main offices, program office, tuck shop and infirmary. Senior staff and faculty housing is located on the second floor in 15 double and triple occupancy shared rooms each with twin size beds, a desk, a dresser and a three-piece bathroom. In the offseason, the main lodge services our conference centre as a 30 room hotel.
Chadar Ochel (Dining Hall)
Our dining hall can accommodate the entire camp community for three meals a day. With an excellent view of the lake outside every window, this large one-of-a-kind building provides the perfect programming space between meals and in the evening. Adjacent to the Chadar Ochel is our kitchen which prepares over 1200 meals a day.
Beit T’fillah (Outdoor Chapel)
One of the most beautiful and peaceful spots on camp with a picturesque panoramic view of the lake, this is the ideal setting for our daily services. Under the shade of the surrounding trees, the Beit T’fillah also serves as a perfect spot for small group discussions, programs, and presentations.

What would camp be without a campfire? The “Point” is the perfect location for sitting around the campfire and watching the sunset. During the summer we gather as a camp community at the Point for campfires and havdalah.
Our newest building, the Pavilion, is an open-air multipurpose facility for sports, art presentations, services, and everything in between. We are excited that the Pavilion will be making its debut for Summer 2021!
