Best illustrated by one of our camper's "My favourite memoire at camp was when my entire cabin went tubing together. It was my first time at a residential camp; I had the best time and made the best friends!" ...
Beautiful private island in the wilderness lakes region of Temagami that provides acclaimed programs to children from around the world. We feature an incredible line-up of camp activities in our Traditional General Camping Program. Children can also choose to specialize if they wish, in the Trampoline, Gymnastics, Aerials or Wakeboarding & Water Skiing Programs.
The Canadian Adventure Camp has a focus on gymnastics, including some very skill-based and frankly difficult activities, such as silks, which was added fairly recently. “We’ve also added hoops, these are all kind of like cirque, or circus elements,” says Justin Gerson, admitting that “it’s quite a difficult sport.” Still, even though a majority of campers don’t attend for the gymnastics program, they all try it, as they do the full range of activities, many of which—such as the gyro—are provided precisely because they are atypical. Campers are encouraged to get out of their comfort zones, to some extent, in order to grow into a better understanding of their strengths, talents, and capabilities. There is an attention to skill development, though character development is a goal of the program as well. Set on a private island in Temagami, with the full range of camp traditions, there’s certainly a lot to love. Staffing is sport specific, with experienced coaches in all of the activity areas. Leadership of the camp has also been consistent, with Skip Connett at the helm since he founded the Canadian Adventure Camp in 1975.
