The Lion Max Simms Memorial Camp is to be known, as the place where all challenged individuals will receive an enriching and rewarding camping experience. 

Lion Max Simms Memorial Camp

Nestled alongside the beautiful Exploits River on Route 360 in Central Newfoundland, you will find the Lion Max Simms Memorial Camp.


We are a full-service accessible facility open year round for various user groups. 

Initially the camp was developed and still services the special needs community during the summer months of July and August. For the remainder of the year, the camp is available for rentals such as business meetings and retreats, church and youth groups, and family events such as reunions and weddings. 


Celebrating over 40 years of delivering Special Needs Camping in Newfoundland & Labrador for physically, mentally and cognitively disabled children, the staff and board of directors at the Lion Max Simms Memorial Camp strive to understand each camps specific needs to fully support them and ensure an enjoyable time at camp.  

The Lion Max Simms Memorial Camp remains undoubtedly the largest project ever undertaken by the Lions family of Newfoundland Labrador. Many hours of planning and work and many fundraising ideas initially and throughout the years have developed this unique unsurpassed facility.
