For over 75 years, Camp Woolsey has played host to thousands of girls from the Ottawa area and beyond. Located on the Ottawa River in Woodlawn, Woolsey is the perfect place for your camper to play-play-play in our safe surroundings. Girls don't have to be a member of Girl Guides to join in the fun!
Woolsey’s 100 acres of mixed forest lays host to an extensive trail system for campers to explore. Our cabins are surrounded by open grassy area’s which allow for girls to play and enjoy being outside. Our waterfront is a great place to cool off with a swim, play on the water trampoline or learn row boating, canoeing, kayaking or boardsailing.
Delicious meals and snacks are served daily and campers help with a portion of the preparation and clean up.
Campers stay either in indoor or tent accommodation. Here is what those are like at Woolsey:
• Indoor - campers sleep in bunks or on mattresses in buildings that are set up with large rooms.
• Tent - each tent sites offer three-season nylon tents which sleep up to 4 campers. Our tent sites also have a site building complete with a kitchen and running water.
Our staff team is a happy, qualified and safety conscious group of young women who will ensure that every day is exciting, rewarding and packed with fun! We're sure your camper will come home with lots of positive comments about these friendly role-models.
Awesome things to do... Campers will participate in age-appropriate activities that may include: archery, boating activities, dance, daily swimming, nature photography, drama, hiking/geocaching, crafts, visual arts, camp-wide games, and the water trampoline.
Most overnight campers at Woolsey attend our traditional camp programs these programs are excellent ways to fit in all that the camp has to offer. The program is different every year based on camper’s ages. These are our most popular programs with the most availability and the best pricing!
