Did we fool you parents too? We really pulled one over on the kids by “cancelling” Circus Day due to the rain on Friday… Best “fakeout” ever, right? It was a way better excuse than “there’s not enough cups in the ML” and it came as a huge surprise when we brought everyone together for […]

The sun came back!

We were happy to the sun show its face again on Teepee Lake today. After the crazy dance party we had last night, the whole camp was buzzing with energy all day! We have 2 beloved alumni (Sam Fergus and Jake Yanowski – both former Inter Boys Section Heads) visiting and doing extra fun activities […]

Magen Boys Rocked Rustic Lounge

We had to postpone Circus Day because of the rain, but that didn’t stop the Magen Boys from coming and hosting an EPIC dance party in Rustic Lounge!!! Juniors, Inters and Seniors rocked out together and we’ve never seen so much energy or so many awesome dance moves in one place at one time! The […]

LIT Power!

It was a crazy day on Teepee Lake! The wind was HUGE and sailboats and windsurfers were flying across the lake. Campfire cooking made BLT’s and the wind carried the delicious aromas all around camp. We welcomed some Inter Boys back from their canoe trips and look forward to seeing more of them tomorrow! The […]


Behind the Curtain

So sorry I didn’t blog last night. We had a Senior Staff meeting that went on quite late. I’m telling you about it because once, when my own kids were young and we were on one of those necessary visits to DisneyWorld, we were lucky enough to be riding the monorail mid-day, at a quiet […]

Juniors Juniors Everywhere!

The Juniors have really been rocking the camp for the past couple of days! Last night they treated us to an incredible production of The Jungle Book – for such small people they sure had a big stage presence! They’ve been getting awards galore, and tonight is Junior Senior night for the girls (the Junior […]

15 years at Arowhon, by Jonathan Newman, Program Director

Two nights ago, at the first campfire of 2016, where the entire camp gathered to sing songs and listen to each other perform songs and skits both soulful and funny, Jonathan Newman was honoured with the gift of a half an Arowhon canoe made into a bookshelf. He made a speech about his 15 years […]

The Sun is Back!

The sun came out to play again on Teepee Lake… as did the wind! It was a great day for sailing and surfing and the lake was full of campers learning head dips and flare jibes. Everyone was rejuvenated after the sleep-in and did a great job at their super cabin clean-up fueled by Hollandaise […]

First Campfire!

It was another rainy day in Algonquin Park but that didn’t stop Arowhon campers from doing activities and having a great time! Campfire cooking moved into Versailles and made delicious tacos (including corn tortillas from scratch!). We also had a special guest (Max’s partner Kash) teaching jewelry making – a big hit with the Inter […]


Buck Lake was a Banger

Today we had our first rain storm of the summer and it provided a much-needed cool down after days of hot, muggy weather. It was great to see how our campers and staff found the silver lining in the “silver sunshine” and kept playing with smiles on their faces! Soccer turned into mud soccer, puddles […]
