A Very Rustic Riverdale

Energy was buzzing today through the silver sunshine as the Senior Girls worked hard all day transforming the Main Lodge into a retro diner that Pop Tate would have been proud of, complete with milkshakes on every table and individually-labelled Jughead crowns for every camper. The food, however, was a few steps up from burgers […]

Superstars on Stage

As the month draws to a close we’re winding up, not down, here at camp. Awards are being achieved in incredible volume, speaking to the dedication and drive of our campers.

Alien Invasion and More!

Fun with Alums!

We were sad to say goodbye today to alumni visitor Katie Canoe who spent the last week helping out at the canoe dock and leading “philosophical crafting circles” but we were quickly consoled by the arrival of both last year’s Junior and Inter Boys Section Heads Jonah and Ruben who have brought a whole lot […]

It was a bittersweet morning as we said goodbye to the 2 week juniors. We’re sad to see them go but it was heartwarming seeing the joyous reunions and we’ve been getting fabulous emails all day telling us about all the fun camp stories that were told on the car ride home and around the […]

To Neverland and Beyond

It was another perfect weather day in Algonquin Park: sunny but not too hot, a nice steady breeze, and skies so clear that the stars tonight are (literally) stellar! But the real stars of the day are the Junior Girls and Boys who performed in the first play of the summer: Peter Pan! It was […]
