Kempenfelt Conference Centre is a natural beauty. Tucked along the shores of Kempenfelt Bay on Lake Simcoe, the Centre sits just south of Barrie and about 45 minutes above Toronto. Its private, 15-acre setting includes 1400’ of private shoreline. The year round conference centre, which is owned by Georgian College, boasts lakeside accommodations and tasty meals in the Lakeview Dining Room and Lounge, as well as ten meeting/classrooms, ten seminar/breakout rooms and a 180 seat Centre Hall.
The Centre's four main buildings include the CTMC facility which encompasses 36 bedrooms including two suites as well as four main meeting rooms and six seminar breakout rooms, the theatre/auditorium, dining room and lounge, games room and lakeside patio. The Bayview Building features 24 bedrooms, an exercise room, hot tub and whirlpool and sauna room, a large fireside TV lounge, four meeting rooms and three seminar/breakout rooms. The Centre also features a 13 bedroom lodge and the cozy Foster cottage that includes six bedrooms. Kempenfelt offers very competitive all-inclusive residential rates as well as day meeting rate.
Kempenfelt’s dining room and lounge has a Certified Chef de Cuisine and an extraordinarily talented team. Breakfast and lunch are ‘Station-Style’ buffet and dinner is a three course table service with 3 entrée selections offering guests a choice of fish, fowl or roast.
The Centre also offers a Team Building/Challenge Course, a seven station low impact course that takes approximately 90 minutes to complete. Each station encourages participation, cooperation and the chance to work on group dynamics and decision making and leadership skills.
