Youth Camp 7–10yrs
The perfect intro to overnight camp, our programs offer our youngest campers a chance to discover the magic of Silver Lake during a 3, 4 or 5-night stay. As this may be your camper’s first-time away from home, we focus on creating a safe and exciting environment for children to discover new outdoor adventures such as canoeing, archery, giant camp games and eco-exploration (just to name a few), topped off by evening songs and hot chocolate around the campfire!
All Ages Camp 8–16yrs
‘Unplug’ your kids and get them back to nature. We pack 6 days of non-stop outdoor action, challenges and exploration through camp classics like Logger Olympics, archery competitions, paddle-a-thons, and teambuilding on our high ropes course—a series of suspended obstacles in the trees. Everyone also takes part in camp-wide games and legendary skit nights.
Teen Camp SLC 13–16yrs
Take camp to the next level. Further develop wilderness navigation using geocaching technology, discover the wonders of the forest through survival and outdoor living skills, and enjoy camp favourites like canoe, kayak & paddleboard relays, cabin vs cabin games, low and high ropes cooperative challenges, and evening campfire-side talent shows.
Ultimate Two Week Extended Camp 12–16yrs
For our older outdoor enthusiasts who want double the time AND fun at camp to master their favourite camp activities and experience overnight campouts.
Leaders in Training 14–16yrs
LC1 is the first of an intended two-step program geared towards preparing and challenging youth to become positive and effective leaders both at camp and in the community. The LC1 program focuses on peer-to-peer leadership skills and team-building in all of our camp program areas. In this one-week program, LCs gain independence and a passion for outdoor education through hands on training, group sessions, mentorship and everyday camp fun!
Leaders in Training 2 15–17yrs
Graduates of LC1, or those meeting the age and application criteria, will continue to develop transferable leadership skills, supervise and teach children in a camp environment, promote an awareness and appreciation for the natural environment, and receive valuable employment related training to become a future counsellor or leader in their community. During the program, LC2s are integrated into the camper cabins to gain experience working alongside the counsellors, provide support for our younger campers, learn about the ‘behind the scenes’ workings of camp, and lead camp games and events.
