We work hard to deliver exceptional outdoor programs for children of all ages. We want to help open doors…to bring children from the inside to the magic and wonder that can only be found in the natural world.
You can help by:
- Sponsoring a child to attend summer camp
- Sponsoring an inner city class to attend our outdoor education programming
During our Summer Camp, children participate in a variety of outdoor pursuits from canoeing and sailing to climbing and archery. Our senior programs emphasize leadership and personal responsibility. This is accomplished through our leaders in training program, our eight day canoe trips in Algonquin Park and our challenge and adventure program. It is the sense of fellowship in a beautiful outdoor setting, which has left an enduring legacy to so many campers.
If you or someone you know needs financial assistance to attend summer camp, please fill out a subsidy application form and return it to the Camp. All information is kept strictly confidential.
Our Outdoor Education programs capitalizes on a child’s inborn enthusiasm for outdoor learning. We use drama, storytelling, games and hands-on activities to make learning engaging and meaningful for students of all ages. Our programs are carefully crafted, innovative and linked to the new Ontario curriculum. For example, students can practice hunting insects as they crouch on our 18-foot spider’s web. Or they can listen to bird songs through our 4-foot replica deer ear. Our 25 nature and science programs teach students about the animals, birds, plants, insects and natural communities that can be found in this region.
Students can also participate in our Historical programming by becoming partners in the North-West Company in our Fur Trade Program. Or dressed as Voyageurs, students paddle replica North Canoes, singing songs and listening to stories from this remarkable period in Canadian history.
