Group Retreats

YMCA Camp Pine Crest is located on 650 acres in beautiful Muskoka. Just a two and a half hours from downtown Toronto, it is the perfect backdrop for groups to experience the outdoors! Whether you are looking for teambuilding, leadership development or some outdoor fun, we offer year-round outdoor programs. Programs are scheduled in advance and our team will work closely with you to create a customized schedule that meets the needs of your group. All our programs are delivered by a highly trained group of experienced and enthusiastic Outdoor Education staff, dedicated to making a positive experience for each participant. Some of our programs may be impacted as we help contain the spread of COVID-19. Please contact us to find out about availability.

Day & Overnight Trips

We are ready and excited to host your group for a day or overnight visit! Typically, a Day Trip runs from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm with all meals included but we can be flexible depending on what works for your schedule. If you are looking to stay a little bit longer but are not quite ready for an overnight, we have an extended day option with a departure time of 9:00 pm.  An Overnight Trip is a great way to escape the city, have fun and create a lasting bond amongst your group. Whether you are looking for a quick 24hr trip or a week-long visit with plenty of outdoor programming, our team will work with you to plan a memorable experience, again, with all meals included.

Leadership and Team Building

Our challenge courses and activities provide an excellent environment for groups to work together, build trust, and develop communication in a safe setting that promotes personal growth. Through targeted games and activities, your participants will be encouraged to work together to succeed! Our staff will work with your group to design a specific program that meets your desired goals and outcomes.
