A Bittersweet Evening
It was an unusual day on Planet Arowhon today as we prepared for our biggest junior camp travel day ever. We’re sad to be saying goodbye to 130 of our amazing campers, but are glad to have been able to provide a shorter intro to camp experience for older first timers this summer. Their last […]Continue
We were all excited to finally see the sun come out this morning! Campers and staff alike woke up refreshed after an ETB leading into the first Sunday brunch of the month. Campers enjoyed their chocolate croissants, smoked salmon, and eggs to order while soaking up the rays of sunshine on the ML steps and […]Continue
First Class Fun
There are a lot of “firsts” that happen at Arowhon. For many it’s the first time they will ride a horse, windsurf across the lake, skipper a sailboat, catch a frog, or get to the top of the high ropes course. These “firsts” are powerful learning experiences. To do something new brings tremendous growth. To […]Continue
One of the most magical times on Planet Arowhon is the hour before breakfast. I was invited to watch an Arowhon A class (a prestigious award in style swimming and diving), this morning, and to be honest when my alarm rang all I wanted to do was roll over and go back to sleep. However, […]Continue
We’re only a week into the session but our campers are already making us proud with their ambition and drive. We know that Arowhon is known for the high level of skill that our campers achieve in their activities, and the past few days have proven that true. The weather hasn’t put a damper on the spirits or […]Continue
The Show Must Go on!
In the city, we might call it ‘Hump Day’ – that day of the week where no magical number of double espresso’s will help you feel like the day will ever end. As a kid, it’s those long Friday afternoons, when the hands on the classroom wall clock seem to move backwards en route to […]Continue
More Sun and More Fun
The weather gods have been on our side this week as the streak of hot, sunny summer days continues. The lake was full of energy and laughter today as campers paddled, sailed, surfed, and swam under the Algonquin sun. We had the first sailing race of the summer at Rest Hour, and have started the August tennis […]Continue
Today was what you can only describe as the perfect camp day. The weather was perfect, and I mean perfect! There was just the right amount of sun, just the right temperature, a slight breeze, not to hard that that canoeists and kayakers got blown around but enough for the sailors and surfers to have […]Continue
Day 2 Down and Going Strong!
We’ve hit our groove already for what we know is going to be a great rest of the month on Planet Arowhon! It’s truly feeling like summer now and the heat’s got us pumped to get on and in the lake. Windsurfers, sailboats, canoes, kayaks, and paddle-boards converged on Tepee Lake today in a flotilla […]Continue
