It’s back! MYCamp2017!!! Join us for another wonderful weekend of Camping right here in our backyard!
Camping is a great way to connect with Allah subhanahu-wa-ta’ala’s natural creation. It is also an opportunity to disconnect from the digital and media world and bond with your family. MYRec is organizing it’s 3rd annual Family Camping Trip right here in Milton! Whether you are an experienced camper or a first timer, this is a perfect opportunity to spend a weekend outdoors surrounded by Allah’s nature! We have a team of volunteers working hard to put together an experience you’ll never forget! Check out just some of the highlights for this year’s camping trip!
Campfire & S’mores
What’s camping without marshmallows… Sit around a blazing campfire and cook some hot marshmallows! The kids will love it! Wanna hear the good news? MYRec will be providing marshmallows and S’mores so that all the kids get a chance!
Allah, subhanahu-wa-ta’ala has made this universe extremely beautiful for us to see and reflect! Enjoy peaceful nights with the sky lit up by gorgeous stars! See if you know their names and can identify the different constellations!
Sports & Activities
Do you enjoy Soccer, Cricket, Football, or Frisbee? What about an old school waterfight? There is lots of space to stay active and have fun with a mix of organized sports and activities for guys and girls! Not just that, we have an exciting FAMILY CHALLENGE lined up with a series of minute to win it games. Paddleboats, Kayaks, Canoeing are also available for an additional charge by the park.
Nature Walks & Hikes
Hike up the Escarpment towards Rattlesnake point as a group! This tour features a beautiful trek with breath taking lookouts from the top of the escarpment! More reasons to praise our Creator while enjoying a great walk through nature!
Catered Pakistani BBQ Meal
What’s camping without food? It’ll be a jam packed Saturday with lots of activities so we figured it would be great to come back from all the action to a LIVE BBQ experience! ONLY for Saturday’s dinner, we’ve arranged for an exclusive Pakistani style BBQ catered meal! Tikka, Kabobs, Rice, Curry & Naans! Mmm… mouth watering yet?
Story Telling & Halaqas
In all the fun and entertainment, it’s important to reflect and remind ourselves of the countless blessings we have been gifted with and to increase our knowledge about our Creator! Sit around the campfire and listen to some great stories and Halaqas. Special kids sessions organized as well!
Connect with our Lord outdoors and under the open sky in congregational prayers!

Q. Is there electricity on the campground?
A. No, there is no electricity. You will need propane stoves and batter operated flashlights etc.

A. Of course you can. You will receive a pass for your car and can go in and out throughout the day. However, if you truly want to experience camping, enjoy cooking with the rest of the families 🙂
Q. Will there be parking?
A. Yes, right in front of the group lots, we will be able to park our cars in an organized fashion.
Q. Will there be washrooms?
