Our host camps - Kilcoo Camp for boys and Camp Oconto for girls - have incredible facilities.  Access to a wide range of activities both on land and on water allow campers to try something new and challenge their perceived limitations at their own pace and at their own level of ability. 

Every day is different and every camper has the opportunity to try all the available activities, regardless of experience. The camp staff will teach and guide campers step-by-step.

During their session at camp, each camper will also have the opportunity to take part in a canoe trip where they will learn to paddle a canoe, pitch a tent, and cook over a campfire.  The length of the canoe trip is dependent on the age and experience of the cabin group.
