at Camp Arowhon
To wed at camp is to make your special day even more special – a destination wedding in the wilderness magic of Algonquin. We “rough it smooth” at camp weddings.
Your ceremony can be:
- Outside under the breathtaking Algonquin sky, on the verdant shores of Tepee Lake.
- In our “Rustic Lounge” theatre, featuring the classic hallmarks of summer camp culture.
- In the warm glow of our gorgeous new all-log Main Lodge, a modern, elegantly rustic, sunlit hall.
- Among the pine trees in our outdoor theatre, surrounded by nature.
- Our courteous, helpful staff can assist you in decorating whichever space you decide on to create the perfect ceremony you've always imagined. Rain or shine we'll do everything we can to make your wedding everything you've ever dreamed of.
“ Getting married in a gorgeous place, surrounded by your friends and family, is a feeling that sticks with you forever. I couldn’t imagine a better location to dedicate myself to the woman of my dreams than Camp Arowhon.”
Josh Darrach, married September, 2017

Reception and Cocktails
Enjoy a signature cocktail on the steps of our Main Lodge, the company of loved ones around our elegant flagstone campfire, and dance the night away under the Milky Way
After the ceremony, sip champagne and cocktails on our covered Main Lodge porch, while watching the sun sink over the far shore of the lake. Keep the evening going while enjoying your favourite collection of beers, wines and spirits around the camp fire.
Our full service kitchen will cater your reception for up to 250 people, designing a menu to fit your needs (and budget!), from goat cheese stuffed chicken breast to prime rib au jus.
Following your reception, you can dance the night away inside our Main Lodge - band or DJ, your choice! - while enjoying the twinkling Algonquin stars, and echoing calls of loons.
Getting married at camp is a weekend of fun
