Hot Times on Tepee Lake
Hi families! We’re excited to be back with our first blog post of summer 2018!!! It’s been a sizzling start to the summer with 30+ degree heat every day! Swim tests were a breeze and we’ve never heard cheering so loud for ice cream sandwiches for dessert. We’ve decided to modify our camp schedule a […]Continue
Green Team to Victory!
Colour War 2017 went out with a bang! The day could not have gone any smoother for the grand finale of a fantastic council games! The morning dawned bright and sunny – perfect weather for the legendary Land and Sea game. Watching it from the tower it looked like a well-oiled machine, with runners finding blocks on […]Continue
To Infinity and Beyond!!!
What a day!!! Today dawned beautiful and sunny and we were treated to the beautiful sight of mist rising off the lake as we lined up for breakfast. The perfect summer weather continued throughout the day with a nice breeze pushing along sailboats and windsurfers and keeping ballers on the land nice and cool as they […]Continue
The rain today didn’t stop us from having a grand ol’ hoe-down for the annual Sadie Hawkins run and dance. In fact the lightning provided a great backdrop for the Magen Boys’ special effects – a natural lazer light show! Electricity was in the air and the Main Lodge was buzzing with energy. The evening […]Continue
Need for Speed

Our campers’ energy and ambition continues to inspire us! Every Rest Hour and Staff Hour is packed with races, tournaments, 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
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
The Sun Sets on First Month 2017
The cold wind outside today only served to make the inside of the cabins cozier as campers and stuff snuggled in together to enjoy their last day on The Planet. Packing went smoothly and we spent the rest of the day doing warm fuzzies and cabin bonding activities. Many a marshmallow was roasted, bus letters written, […]Continue
