Camp Daily Activities
Your week of camp consists of praise and worship chapel, a wide variety of games, evening campfires, daily swimming (weather permitting), canoeing and nature hikes. Music is also part of camp and not just around the camp fire. A variety night may be hosted which could include impromptu comedy, solo acts and musical groups – all in fun.
Hungry! Three nutritious meals are served every day prepared by our volunteer staff of experienced cooks. In addition, you can satisfy other food cravings by imparting your hard earned coin at the camp tuck-shop where soft drinks, chocolate bars, potato chips, etc., are available.
Campers sleep in either rooms or cabins of four to six. Each cabin is assigned a counsellor to oversee and act as a role model to the campers. Sleeping quarters are kept clean daily by the campers before breakfast.
All activities at camp are supervised. Qualified lifeguards supervise all water activities and medical staff are on the grounds at all times.
Each year a cause in supporting unprivileged children are undertaken by the campers through the Free-a-Family program of the CRWRC.
