Camper & Staff
Stay in touch
We know you want to stay in touch with camp friends throughout the year so we've compiled an address book with mailing addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and birth dates of each camper and staff who were at camp this past summer.
Want to see all the fun that happened this July and August?
Here are the slideshows for you to smile along with.

If I get homesick what will my counsellors do to make it better?
Your counsellors will stay with you and cheer you up. If it’s at night they’ll sit on your bed and comfort you till you fall asleep. If it’s during the day, they’ll hang out with you and help you make a new friend, and take you to fun activity and help you focus on that. Before you know it you’ll be having so much fun you’ll barely remember you were homesick.
Do I have to go swimming? How do you place me in a swim class?
Every camper has to do swim class every two days – it’s an important skill! We teach Red Cross swim levels and kids are placed in a swim class by the skills in these levels.
Do you have “nice” counsellors and do they live in the cabin?
They’re super nice! They love being camp counsellors and hanging out with kids… and they live right in the cabin with the kids.
How many campers and counsellors are in a cabin? Can I be with my friends?
There are usually 10 campers and two or three counsellors in a cabin. If you request to be with your friends, we will do our best to make that happen.
How long are the canoe trips? Do I have to go?
We’re lucky to be in the heart of the Algonquin Park wilderness and canoe trips leave right from our dock, so everyone except our two-week Junior Campers goes on a canoe trip. Trips are three or four days for Juniors, four days for Inters and five days for Seniors…. And longer if you want
I love to ride horses. Can I ride three times every day?
Maybe not three times, but everyone gets to do their favourite activities every day if they want.
