    The Our Kids review of Camp Couchiching

    our take

    Couchiching isn’t the oldest camp in the country, but it shares a tradition with those that are. The camp has also long been at the leading edge of what camps can offer, and who they can offer it to. Cooch was perhaps one of the first to go entirely co-ed, which it did in the 1960s, though it had offered girls’ programs prior to that. Soon after, the administration sought to reach kids with special medical needs, and established the Ontario Cystic Fibrosis Camp. The idea, in that and other like programs that followed, was to allow kids to get beyond their exceptionalities: the camp provided the supports they needed, within a community that didn’t see them as exceptional. Today, that model is common throughout the world of camping, though at the time it was fairly groundbreaking. And while times have changed, the values haven’t, and Couchiching rightly prides itself on bringing kids together in order to grow, build friendships, and participate in a values-based community. The camp community extends well beyond the summer, or even youth—the relationships begun here continue into campers’ adult lives, as demonstrated in part through an involved community of camp alumni.

    User reviews of Camp Couchiching

    Great staff team
    2022 parent (Parent)

    All the staff were positive and fun, they truly had a passion for what they do and it really shows

    A great choice
    a 2022 leadership participant... (Camper)

    You get to choose your activities as a camper and the leadership program were the two best months of my life. I would never have met so many of my closest friends if it wasn’t for camp and I can’t wait to see what the future brings for me as hopefully a member of the staff team next year ... Read More

    I'm excited for our 77th year at Camp Couchiching as I am super proud to be a part of such a special place and I've worked here for 15 years.

    Camp Couchiching is a traditional summer camp that finds its success through the connections we make to our campers. Often coined a "community camp" the Cooch experience is ideal for kids who are interested in the development of social skills. 

    A camp of up to 150 campers, this challenge by choice program encourages campers to engage in programs with different groups throughout the day. 

    Like the thousands of people who have Camp Couchiching as a special part of their life, please join us to  "Catch a Smile" at "Cooch".


    • To all the camp staff
      Thank you to everyone at Camp Couchiching for giving my grandson such a great time. He talked for 2 hours straight about what he did. He kept saying "Oh, yeah and ....." He was so happy and he was very touched by all the hugging everyone did saying good bye. He said "that was really kind of cool, Nana." Thank you to all your staff for me please, you really made his summer.
    • Thanks Camp Couchiching

      I picked up my daughters from camp today. They both had a fantastic time!!! They talked about all of the fun activities - 'big boarding', kayaking, making sandcastles, campfires, skits, theme days, games, rock climbing, high ropes and more! They also talked about making new friends and how much they loved their counselors. As a parent, I could easily see how much my daughters liked their counselors and how the counselors positively interacted with the children. The counselors (and other staff members) were also very approachable, friendly and helpful when we were dropping our children off and picking the girls up at the end of the session. We would like to say thank you very much to you and your staff for providing such a fun, safe and enriching experience for our daughters!!!! Have a wonderful fall, winter and spring! See you next summer!!

    • The Bus Trip
      Sitting in that parking lot. Waiting for the bus. Your van acting as an oven. But then the coach pulls into that lonely corner of the lot. The doors open and the bags come out. Your heart accelerates. Faces old and new to you appear. Parents say their final good byes and before long the bus has rolled out. The journey takes you north. It is slow but finally in the distance you see the old rundown general store. The bus turns and you are about to arrive at a place where discrimination is the only thing discriminated against. Where you're so tired after your day of running about, that foam bedding is heavenly. A land where candy is legal tender. You get off the bus with a sigh of relief because you know after the long journey, you've finally arrived home again.
