If your child is registered for one of these camps, they will enjoy the fun and excitement of camp life with their peers in an age-appropriate environment. These camps follow a daily routine of waterfront time, recreation, arts & crafts, and Living and Learning sessions. Camp-wide games, campfires, singsongs and exploring McDougall's natural surroundings are some highlights! Campers will become quickly familiar with these activities.
Whether Scamper, Junior or Intermediate campers, they will be provided continuity of programs and time for adventure, including the assurances of healthy meals and appropriate sleep time routines.
Teen Camp for youth ages 13-15 will appreciate what a typical camp day offers, including waterfront, recreation, and arts & crafts sessions, along with some opportunities to make informed choices as to where their interests draw them. Teens will be introduced to some leadership opportunities to build self-confidence and independence. In the Living & Learning sessions, youth will explore how they connect and contribute to the community and the world around them.
We are introducing the new Family Camp Week!
A new opportunity for families to spend a week together! While this camp is less structured, it offers many typical program sessions and unique adventures to help frame your day, including arts & crafts, bog walk, games, living and learning; water activities like swimming, canoeing, fishing; songs, skits and campfire. Bring your talents to share, and create new memories and lasting friendships! Every family assists with daily duties. Parents are fully responsible for the care of their children.
Teen Skills Camp - August 13 to 18
Are you interested in identifying plant species - would you know what tree bark or needles make a great tea? How about survival skills and shelter building? Perhaps you enjoy learning new art skills? Using a wood-burning kit, watercolour, or charcoal sketching? What about writing and directing some camp skits?
Maybe your interests are learning to make different knots or a fancy fishing lure! You may also be interested in learning culinary skills - perhaps working with a team to make a camp meal from scratch.
Teen Skills camp offers a wide variety of skills development in addition to appreciating what a typical camp day offers, including waterfront and recreation. Teen Skills offers opportunities to make informed choices as to where their interests draw them.
Teens will also be introduced to leadership opportunities to build self-confidence and independence. In the Living & Learning sessions, youth will explore how they connect and contribute to the community and the world around them.
