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 […]

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 […]

It was a super hot and humid day on Teepee Lake and everyone wanted to spend it in the lake! The campfire cooking program continued to be a big hit, featuring a grilled vegetable salad with arugula from Joanne’s garden, and the Junior Girls had a blast seeing how many of them could fit in […]

More sunshine and first ETB

We can’t believe the campers have been here for almost a week already! After 5 great sunny days of playing hard at activities, everyone was ready for our first ETB (Early To Bed) tonight. We are so impressed with how ambitious and driven our campers are already – they are receiving an unbelievable amount of […]


Introducing… 5th Period!!!

Our 3rd day of programming was even sunnier and hotter than the previous two, making water sports extra popular today and swim classes a refreshing breeze. The wind was great for sailing and surfing, and campers were achieving 3rd class awards like crazy! Campers were excited to receive mail and tuck after lunch, and even […]

It was another beautiful sunny day in Algonquin Park – perfect for sending out our first round of trips: the intrepid Senior Girls! They left with huge smiles and positive attitudes like the great role models they are, and we can’t wait to hear all the stories of their adventures when they return. In camp […]
