Themes for 2018

Each week there is a different theme to the camp and the activities all relate to this theme. You'll get to use your creative side and have more fun than you can imagine! This year our themes were selected from suggestions and polling our youth through our Adventureland Facebook Page.  We encourage youth to bring along costumes related to their weekly themes.  Prizes are awarded for youth who bring along a creative costume to wear at our opening (arrival at camp) and during our Theme Night / Movie Night at camp.  

HARRY POTTER WEEK - July 2-6, 2018

Open your muggle eyes to the magical wizarding world all around us! Practice your spells, charms and potions to help you defend Hogwarts against the Dark Arts. Students will also be taught all about fantastic beasts (and maybe even where to find them). And remember, “happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

PIRATE WEEK - July 9-13, 2018

Arrrrr, Matey! Let your timbers be shivered as you set sail across the seven seas in search for untold riches. But your hunt will not be as easy as “X marks the spot”; you will have to fight off bandits, swashbuckle enemies, and even beat scurvy before you can hope to reach the treasure. Yo Ho, yo Ho, is the Pirate life for you?

SURVIVOR WEEK - July 16-20, 2018

Come improve your survival skills at Camp Adventureland. Learn how to survive in a wilderness or urban setting. Learn traditional Scouting skills including shelter building, fire building, orienteering and stargazing. Can you outwit, outplay and outlast in a week of friendly competition?

SPY WEEK - July 23-27, 2018

***CONFIDENTIAL*** Learn the basics of international espionage including stealth, endurance, aerial infiltration techniques, and marksmanship. Our specialized facility is a challenging and rewarding training ground. Do you have what it takes to not only succeed, but to excel?

Activities

Everyday is filled with great activities! Each village rotates to different events and spends time playing and having fun.

Please Note: Adventureland will start July 2nd 2018.

CLIMBING / ROPES PROGRAMS

Our climbing and ropes program is very popular. These safe and fun activities promote teamwork & strengthen personal and group goals. They allow participants to complete challenges by walking across ropes and cables securely attached and strung between trees. The climbing wall is 11 meters high with forty colourful handholds. Campers wear safety harnesses, a helmet, and are constantly attached to a safety line controlled by a qualified instructor.

MOUNTAIN BIKING & SPORTS

Adventureland has over fifty mountain bikes of varying sizes and design. A professionally constructed trail through the woods allows campers to participate in a two hour, guided trail ride. A novice course is available for beginners. A novice course is available for beginners.  Helmets are supplied although youth are permitted to bring their own. 

Our Sports programs include games such as beach volleyball, badminton, soccer and – BALL HOCKEY! An obstacle course is available for use.  Campers also love playing a game called The Web of Life (Predator and Prey) in our forested pen.

DAILY SWIMMING

Relax and rejuvenate in our camp pool while being safely supervised by our lifeguards. The pool is equipped with numerous activities and pool toys and also has a water slide. All campers will visit the pool once or twice daily. It’s also a great time to get clean. Each week, a camp wide pool fun day is organized with lots of fun activities for swimmers and non swimmers.

ARCHERY & TRAMPOLINE

Whether you're a beginner or the next Robin Hood, everybody will improve their skills. The best archers from each village compete against each other and the winner receives the prestigious golden arrow! Even if you've never picked up a bow before, our staff will teach you how to hit the target.

We also know that children love to jump. A trampoline program with enclosed netting and spotters allows campers to safely learn trampoline jumps and stunts.

CRAFTS & WOODWORKING

Enjoy designing and painting a different theme related craft or woodworking project such as birdhouses and magazine racks each week. Campers can also participates in other hands on projects such as beadwork during quieter time at camp. Other programs include gimp art and weekly theme related crafts.

OTHER PROGRAMS AT CAMP

Programs are planned within each sub camp that includes basic orienteering, basic fire building and cooking. (For example, each camper cooks a tin foil dinner in a fire built by the campers under direct adult supervision). Guest speakers are invited to camp to talk about such subjects as Astronomy and wilderness animal demonstrations are presented. Campers will participate in educational games such as Web of Life, Village Campfires, weekly Scouts Own and Fun Day rotational activities that may include activities such as parachutes, jumping castles, earth ball and T-shirt tie-dyeing. A weekly camp wide campfire highlights the week. Our tuck shop is OPEN twice per week (free of charge) and all participants can choose two items (candy bars, chips, ice cream, pop, juice, water, sour candy, etc).   Lastly, youth can choose their favorite programs at an advanced level during our electives program.  Choices include: swimming lessons, advanced mountain biking, advanced climbing, outdoor cooking and creative crafts.
