Day One! Game on!

It was a great first day of 2nd session: Hot and sunny, and EVERY single camper passed their swim test… This morning Brent boys were training, portaging and paddling laps… After dinner tonight we had a gorgeous skit to announce the Junior play: Sleeping Beauty.. The skit was a costume extravaganza with Prince Charming on […]

They’re here!!!

2nd session started off great (not one camper crying at dinner, and lots of smiles!), and we’re off and running. As the sun sets pink and golden over Teepee Lake, evening activity is winding down.. It was by sections tonight, so campers could start to get to know their section staff and learn their section […]

High School Musical

The Inter Senior play, High School Musical, just ended… A cast of 90, very cool sets, great singing and dancing….

The Tooth Fairy, The Sandman, Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny got together in great costumes of course… The campers were divided into four teams to represent the […]


Keep your AC, we’ve got the lake!

The mercury hit 32′ C today but we had a nice onshore breeze coming off the lake… and many swims. At breakfast we told every camper to wear their bathing suits, and every land-based activity ended 10 minutes early so that all the kids could go for a dip every hour – the best way […]

Why camp?

from the American Camp Association:


The long trip is back!

Nine days ago six Senior Boys and three staff (two seasoned trip leaders and a counsellor) left camp and paddled eastward literally the entire breadth, all the way across Algonquin Park to the Barron Canyon. They paddled and portaged for nine days, braving huge winds, unmarked portages – and the sheer challenge of a 173 […]
