Camp Aliquam is back! Camp Aliquam logo

We will be offering summer camp programs for campers ages 4 to 13 years. What is Camp Aliquam? Camp Aliquam is the Town of Orangeville's summer camp program, just with a fun name.  What does Aliquam mean you ask?  From the Latin origin we have interpreted the meaning to reflect “that to a large extent our camps are fun and awesome and have been for a long time!"

Registration is open now!

A Camper Information Form is required for all campers.
