Clowns and Acrobats and Jugglers Oh My!

Well we sure shook things up today!!! After a week of regular programming everyone was wondering what the next special activity would be, and nobody was disappointed! This morning at breakfast there was a strange announcement from Mike the Mighty Midget (who turned out to be Jo and Leon dressed up as one person) teaching […]


Campfire Magic

Energy was high and spirits were up around camp today with another perfect weather day. Now that we’re past the 2 week mark and everyone is starting to feel more comfortable with the routine, we’re working on keeping things fresh so nobody gets bored (is that even possible at a camp with 18 activities?). The […]

Fun with Alums!

We were sad to say goodbye today to alumni visitor Katie Canoe who spent the last week helping out at the canoe dock and leading “philosophical crafting circles” but we were quickly consoled by the arrival of both last year’s Junior and Inter Boys Section Heads Jonah and Ruben who have brought a whole lot […]

It was a bittersweet morning as we said goodbye to the 2 week juniors. We’re sad to see them go but it was heartwarming seeing the joyous reunions and we’ve been getting fabulous emails all day telling us about all the fun camp stories that were told on the car ride home and around the […]

To Neverland and Beyond

It was another perfect weather day in Algonquin Park: sunny but not too hot, a nice steady breeze, and skies so clear that the stars tonight are (literally) stellar! But the real stars of the day are the Junior Girls and Boys who performed in the first play of the summer: Peter Pan! It was […]

Super Special Sunday

For our first sleep-in Sunday of the summer we went all out! After a fabulous buffet brunch that got a rave review from critic Joanne Kates, campers had 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 a notch from […]

Buck Lake Bonanza

Our 2018 season of Rustic Lounge performances started with a bang tonight! The Senior Boys have been working tirelessly since they arrived at camp to prepare their 100% original (not to mention wildly hilarious, creative, and good-spirited satire) play about camp life. The boys dressed up as different Arowhon staff members (and pets) and gave […]

Windy day of learning

With temperatures back to normal levels the energy in the camp has sky rocketed. We can once again run and play and learn without worry of the heat. Not only did temperatures cool down a bit but the wind is showing up as well. Sailing and windsurfing were the place to be today. Campers flew […]

We finally had a break in the heat today and everyone here is overjoyed! Halfway through 3rd period the skies opened up and the most refreshing rain came pouring down providing us with much-needed relief from the crazy weather. Never before have we seen such a positive response to silver sunshine – campers faces lit […]

No Power No Problem

There are many things that make the Arowhon mentality unique and one of the things we’re most proud of is that when challenges arise, we don’t shy away from them or moan and groan – we embrace the opportunity to try something new and feel proud of ourselves afterward. During pre-camp, we played a game […]
