Cheers to an Incredible Session

The past 2 days have been so filled with camp magic, making the ending feel especially poignant. On Sunday the Senior Bears treated us to an incredible New York themed Cotillion banquet, followed by an amazingly written and performed production of their traditional staff parody play, Rustic Lounge. The night was capped off with a […]

Extra Extra Read All About it!

With only a few days left before first month ends, every one is packed with excitement and special activities. Today we had a super cabin clean up (for tuck of course), FADSUP special day (fitness on paddle boards), NOGA (nature yoga on top of Gibraltar), tie-dyeing at Arts and Crafts, and a windsurf race to […]

Vikings Vs. Romans

Today’s weather held out just long enough for the bulk of our special day to be in sunshine, and when the rain finally came at 4pm we took advantage of the shower for an impromptu puddle-jumping and rain-dancing party. The day started out normal enough, with boiled eggs and cinnamon buns for breakfast and the […]


Tripstars are back!

Why I Come Back to Camp

Our campfire last night culminated in this incredible speech from kitchen staff Ryan commemorating his 10th summer at camp: I have officially gone up highways 400, 11, and 60 ten times to reach the most close knit, friendly, aesthetically-pleasing and passionate place I’ve ever been a part of.  When I first came to Arowhon in 2013 I […]

Campfire Magic is Back!

Everyone at camp is thrilled with the great news that the fire ban is finally lifted! All around camp last night were the nostalgic sounds and scents of crackling of embers and roasting marshmallows. Seeing friends gathered around fires, arms around each other, singing and chatting, reminded us of what camp is all about: connection […]

Time flies when you’re having fun in the sun

We can’t believe it’s already time to say goodbye to our 2 week Juniors! It’s been an epic 13 days with them, culminating in an incredible performance of the Junior play (Matilda, the musical, which was hilarious, adorable, and impressively well-performed), a heartwarming Junior-Senior night (where each Junior got a senior buddy, dressed like twins […]

But what if it doesn’t work?

Today on the canoe dock, a 12-year-old got in a full-length canoe, by herself. She was there to eagerly learn three new strokes, an effort that took courage, skill and patience. Perhaps the new strokes wouldn’t get her where she was going. Perhaps it would take longer to learn than she anticipated. A few hours later, […]

Trip What? Trip YEAH!

Our first round of canoe trips have started to come back and we’re loving all the stories and pride coming back with the Bears and Owls. 2 nights ago the Senior Moose put on a wonderful production of Buck Lake – a satire play about the staff, performed by the kids dressed as staff. The […]
