Families can attend any of the weeklong sessions from July to August every summer. Modern cabins, washroom facilities and buffet style dining set in a rustic setting with a connection to nature. Unplug, unwind or be adventurous and go canoeing, kayaking or hiking with one of our skilled instructors.
Children attend morning programs, divided into close age groups, encouraging creativity, discovery, appreciation for the natural world and plain old fun. Parents have mornings off to relax, read a good book, hike, take a trip to town etc. You can follow all of our planned activities or simply do your own thing. Afternoons are for families, with supervised swim time, sports, crafts and games. Settle around the fire in the evening for campfire songs or the daring night games for kids.
Children gain independence and confidence on Overnight Night. With three levels, kids can grow from year to year in their camping skill.
