Where Mindcamp Happens

YMCA Cedar Glen



Mindcamp takes place at the YMCA Cedar Glen Outdoor Centre, a 263 acre site 30 kilometers (18 miles) north of Toronto Pearson International Airport.

YMCA Cedar Glen was our original home from 2003-2011. It offers space to connect in nature, with (rustic) accommodation, meeting facilities and experiences such as high ropes, wall climbing, and swimming. It is also located close enough to a number of hotels and Bed and Breakfast establishments to make sleeping offsite a viable option for those who don’t like “rustic”.

YYZ Toronto Pearson International Airport is our main portal to the world, the airport most convenient to Cedar Glen. You can rent a car there, or simply hire a taxi. We are looking at options for some kind of Mindcamp shuttle and will keep you posted about that.

YTZ Billy Bishop Airport (informally known as “The Island Airport” as it’s on a small island in Lake Ontario near the city centre), is good if you want to spend time downtown, but it’s not as close. If you are NOT planning to spend time downtown, flying into YYZ Toronto Pearson makes more sense.
