The Our Kids review of Ways of the Woods Day Camp

 

It’s a traditional camp in all the best ways, with the one exception that campers are home for dinner each night. Hosted by Conservation Halton, the camps make the most of a network of properties in and around the Niagara Escarpment. The resources include those of the various conservation areas, from extensive green space—wetlands, streams, forests, significant geological formations—to those associated with the natural history and regional heritage, such as the raptor centre at Mountsberg and the Iroquoian village exhibit at Crawford Lake. (Notably, Crawford is a meromictic lake and in the running to be the golden spike for the Anthropocene, which is more exciting than it sounds.) Theme weeks keep things kid-centred and vibrant. Environmental stewardship is a core goal of Conservation Halton, and awareness of nature, and our place within it, is an aspect of the camp offerings. But, yes, fun is also a goal, and engaged staff and theme weeks keep things kid-centred and vibrant.

The WOW Camp is a great camp! This was our son’s third year and he had a wonderful time yet again! 

The counsellors are great, the locations are amazing and the games played even better!

Great memories for the kids.

See you next year.

Camp Experiencesexpand

My kids have been to a variety of camps, but this was their first year for WOW Camp. Our boys are 7 and almost 9 and this was by far the best camp experience they’ve had. My older son is singing camp songs in the shower that he learned through the week and can’t stop talking about the sleepover last night. Our younger son was beaming when he brought home his tie dye shirt yesterday.

Our hope is to send them to residential camp in the future and this experience has given them a great start.

Please thank your staff for a wonderful week.

Camp Experiencesexpand

The camp experience provides an opportunity for kids to shine. I'll never forget when a young boy in my group rose to become a motivating leader while learning canoeing techniques. He began as the one in the group that made trouble, but from the moment we went out on the lake, his leasdership skill were all I noticed. I always loved seeing the smiles on the campers' faces as they emerged from the cave at Mount Nemo. The pride and excitement of conquering such an obstacle, made caving a favourite activity with the kids. Catching frogs, dragonflies, and crayfish are not only fun activities for the campers, but they also instill a respect and admiration for the natural environment that cannot be matched.

A Typical Day?expand

Every day at Ways of the Woods is a new adventure. Boating, hiking, caving, archery and pond studies are just a few of the activities that campers (and staff) get to experience. You never know what you might learn while exploring and having fun at camp. Kelso's stream studies always presented new and interesting creatures to be discovered. One day in particular the kids found an insect that looked prehistoric! On hikes we've been lucky enough to spot garter snakes and porcupines.
