Types of Camps
Camp is a place where campers and staff have fun in a community/activity focused setting, spend time in nature and develop skills for life. With more than 50 camps across Canada and every camp is unique.
Most Canadian camps are traditional camps. These camps blend a variety of sports, wilderness, creative arts and special activities into their programs.
These camps have a focus on their wilderness tripping program that involves canoeing to a new campsite every night, and can spend anywhere from 3 – 52 nights on these trips. You’ll spend a certain amount of time teaching and training your group at a base camp before embarking on your adventure.
Girl Guide Camps:

Operated by Christian or Jewish organizations, these camps provide a broad range of outdoor activities within the framework of promoting positive life values. Daily prayer, worship and religious study are not the major camp activities; however, they may be part of daily camp life.
Physical Disability Camps:
Children with physical limitations are provided special attention and facilities making it possible for them to enjoy a range of camp activities. May include adult campers.
