Fabulous First Day!

Watching the first day of second session I was overcome with pride in the growth our staff have undergone in the last 4 weeks. We all know that the best way to learn is by doing, but it’s always a bit unnerving at the end of June staff training sending the novices into the field […]

Don’t Cry Because it’s Over

Smile because it happened. That is our traditional last day of camp flagpole quote, and I couldn’t help smile as I watched the sun rise over Tepee Lake at 5:30 this morning.

Mama Mia!

Here we go again! The second play of the summer was even more EVERYTHING than we could have hoped for. It was fun, funny, creative, touching, and full of heart and soul from all involved. All the hard work the camper cast and crew put into preparing over the last weeks paid off and the […]

Super Sunday

It was a SUPER special Sunday today with our traditional sleep-in and buffet brunch, compete with tropical fruit, chocolate croissants, smoked salmon, and eggs to order. The delicious food gave campers plenty of energy to do a super cabin clean up and distance swims (thanks to all that hollandaise-flavoured fuel). Then we took it up […]

What camp does to kids

From a grateful parent: “I wanted to let you know that [my child] had a great time at camp. She has been chatting non stop and in great detail all about camp cheers, friends, activities and evening programs. She only remembers being homesick “at the beginning”. She loved the scrambled eggs and was proud that […]

Where has the time gone!?!

While we love seeing smiles on children’s faces, we were incredibly touched by all the tears that were shed by campers and staff alike as we said goodbye to the 2 week Juniors. The confident, independent, connected kids boarding the bus were a stark contrast to the faces we greeted 2 weeks ago and the […]
