Don’t Cry Because it’s Over, Smile Because it Happened

It’s been a bittersweet day on Planet Arowhon. Campers and staff spent their last day crossing items off their summer bucket lists: marshmallows were roasted, songs sung, final dips in Tepee Lake and early morning paddles in the mist.

Going Out With a Bang!

We could not have asked for a better last day of programming for 2016! The wind was roaring, windsurfers and sailboats were flying across the lake, riding took out a final cross country trail, and beautiful plaques were completed at A&C that will forever mark the amazing memories that were created this summer. At Rest Hour […]


Oh What A Night!

Rustic Lounge Productions blew us away again with another FABULOUS theatrical spectacular! Mamma Mia was it ever a great show!

Back to Business!

Today was another amazing example of why Planet Arowhon is unlike any other place on earth. The last two days have been a whirlwind of activity and you would expect that given the huge amounts of cheering, running and singing demonstrated by our campers and staff during this year’s council games, today would be a […]

Let it Rain, Let it Pour, All We Want is Colour War!!!

Pour it did, all afternoon, but that didn’t stop us from having an INCREDIBLE day 2 of Colour War! Land and Sea this morning had every single camper either running around on land or cruising the lake in boats trying to get as many hidden blocks as they could out to the voyageur canoe which […]


The Search for Nemo is on!

We couldn’t have asked for a better first day of Colour War! The weather was perfect (sunny but not too hot, a great breeze to propel the sailing and windsurfing competitions) and everybody’s spirits and energy were through the roof. We started the day with a fierce game of Scavination (a great camp wide game […]

Mini Camp! Mini Camp!

It was a wet but wonderful day on the planet – we didn’t let the rain get us down! In fact, we put on our rain gear and jumped in the puddles and showed that Arowhon campers keep going through rain or shine and always find the silver lining in our Algonquin clouds. Despite the […]
