Camp Arowhon

Mini Camp

Saturday August 11 to Sunday August 12, 2018: A great weekend for younger children to find out what Arowhon is really like

Mini Camp is a weekend "taste of camp" for children ages six to nine years old, who are interested in checking out camp and not ready for a longer experience.

It's a fun weekend with our most nurturing staff welcoming Mini Campers...a warm and safe introduction to camp to build comfort for future overnight camp experiences.

Parents can drop off/pick up Mini Campers at camp (and get a camp tour) or use our supervised bus transportation between Toronto and camp – a three hour ride.

Buses leave Herbert Carnegie Centennial Centre parking lot Saturday at 7:30 am and return there Sunday at 9:30 pm.

Please review our Mini Camp Transportation details. A map and directions to camp are available here.

Staff who are trained to work with younger children lead this jam-packed weekend of fun and introduce our Mini Campers to great camp activities including:

  • Canoeing
  • Horseback Riding
  • Rock Climbing
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Swimming
  • Sailing
  • Archery
  • Zipline
  • Cookout
