Hand in Hand, Faith in Action
Located in Bartibog, NB, (20 minutes outside Miramichi) on 150 acres overlooking the beautiful Miramichi River, Camp Sheldrake boasts two waterfronts, and several kilometers of woodland trails. We are a residential outdoor adventure summer camp for youth and teens.
As a Catholic-based camp, affiliated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint John, our program bases itself in Christian values and often focuses on the theme of Social Justice. Our days & meals begin with prayer and we end our days around a group campfire based on Spiritual and Social Justice themes.
We welcome campers of all denominations.
We are a non-profit charitable organization and strive to provide the best possible experience for all our campers.
