  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Canadian Adventure Camp

    our take

    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.

    CAC made her independent and self confident
    Elise (Parent)

    As much as I consider my daughter independent and self confident, part of this is probably a contribution to her many years at CAC. The camp allows her to totally be herself without judgement or needing to keep up with the "Jones'". She loves being active in sports and CAC keeps her happy doing all the things she loves to do, not what she is forced to do. The friendships she has made with campers and mainly many staff have formed who she is and is one of her favorite things about each summer. The administration at CAC and communications from camp are top notch. CAC keep doing what you do best. It is a camp with no pretension, and amazingly simple fun and adventure for their campers. Thank you for so many years of the best experience any child/teen could have for their summer ... Read More

    So happy
    Lea (Parent)

    Julien was so happy with his 2 weeks at CAC that we are sending him back but this time 4 weeks next July. Julien really improved his English while meeting great people coming from all over the world and doing a lot of sports which is found off ... Read More

    The best experience he ever had
    Karen (Parent)

    I cannot say enough about this camp! My son said it was one of the best experiences he has ever had. He returned home with a confidence, energy, and excitement that I have not seen in a long time. The only drawback was that he was sad when it was all over and had to adjust to his regular routine upon his return!! He loved being disconnected from technology and said that he was kept so busy and engaged he did not miss anything about his phone!! We would recommend this camp to anyone and thank you for providing a life changing experience for our son ... Read More

    An excellent level of gymnastics and trampoline
    Vincent (Parent)

    Great first experience from both our sons who loved it... and want to come back. The level of Gymnastic/trampoline program and installation were great. Amazing attention to detail from all the staff and management.

    Director's Message

    Skip Connett and Justin Gerson, GREAT LEADERSHIP TEAM

    Our goal every summer is to help young people grow into responsible, well- rounded citizens by expanding their skills and knowledge within the fun and friendship of a warm camp atmosphere. At the end of their camp experience, we want campers to leave not only with fond memories and firm friendships, but also a variety of valuable life skills to lay the groundwork for their future.

    By providing a strong character-building atmosphere where campers develop the capacity to set and work towards personal goals, we help them to gain an increased sense of confidence, a ‘can-do’ attitude, improved social skills and the ability to live successfully with others.

    Senior Camp Director

    F.B. (Skip) Connett is a full-time camping professional who has been leading youth in camping and outdoor activities for over 40 years. A former long-time Director and Board member of both the Canadian and Ontario Camping Associations, he is a holder of the Award of Honour from the Canadian Camping Association, is an Honourary Life Member of the Ontario Camps Association and is a Fellow and former President of the Society of Camp Directors. Skip is the founder and president of Canadian Adventure Camp.

    Camp Director

    Justin Gerson B.B.A. is a long time member of Canadian Adventure Camp. His background in gymnastics originally brought him to C.A.C as a camper and then as a coach. After several years as Head Gymnastics Coach at Canadian Adventure Camp, Justin began working fulltime for camp in 2005 and was appointed Camp Director in 2008. He leads by example and fosters mutual respect which results in a motivated and engaged staff team. His love for working with children drew him to camping as a career, and the children remain his first priority. He is committed to building a positive relationship with each camper.

    Sports Director

    Tom Zivic, Professor Emeritus in Sport and Recreation at York University was one of the most successful coaches of the Canadian National Gymnastics Team for over 25 years. He enjoys international renown as a Gymnastics Coach, Teacher and Judge. In his role as our Sports Director, Tom is involved in all aspects of camp sports activities. He was our Gymnastics Director at C.A.C. for 22 years until his current appointment as our Sports Director.

    STAFF

    At Canadian Adventure Camp, we know there is nothing more important than the health and safety of our campers, and this is always our number one priority. With this in mind, CAC staff are carefully hand-picked by our Directors, and provided with superior training to ensure they are well equipped for the job and ready for the role of a lifetime!

    We pride ourselves in the high quality of our staff and the fact that many return year after year, from countries all around the globe! A good number of our staff have been campers themselves, and completed our esteemed Leader in Training program before joining the Staff Team. 



    Stories

    • Cabin Tubing!
      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!"
    • Banquet
      A special night that is loved and never forgotten by all of our campers. Campers are treated to an amazing night of great food and awards. The night is capped with a rocking dance that you don't want to miss!
    • Evening Programs!
      Just a taste of what an evening might involve for a camper. Campfires, Barge Cruise, Talent Shows, Record Breakers, Cabin Feud, Movie Night, Casino Night, Banquet and many more!
    • Pan-a-smugglican Games!
      Every session campers participate in a camp wide competition. Campers compete in a fun variety of activities, all within a theme for the day. Past themes have been Harry Potter, Super Heroes, Movies, Olympics, Pirates, and more!
    • Summer Memories!
      "B R A V O! Cabin's 1
    • Q
      Q - In a broad sense, did we fulfill your expectations of us this summer? A - Yes. Our daughter loved it. We were very satisfied with counsellor/camper ratio. Excellent Staff! Q - Would you recommend us to your friends? A - Congratulations - we are happy to recommend to others
    • First Experience
      "For our son, his first experience at an overnight camp was amazing and we thank you for that! You have a great program, great staff and a great site."
    • Providing Excellence
      "We feel it was a privilege to be able to provide our granddaughter with this experience. After camp she took part in a trampoline seminar and showed excellent ability, more than the other participants. This gave her a real big boost in her self-esteem and self-confidence. All thanks to C.A.C."
