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.Visit camp's website

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".
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!!
