Personal Challenge, Building Friendships, Experiencing Nature
Our flexible program is designed to accommodate the skill level and interest of each camper. Each child is treated as unique, important and capable, and provided with every opportunity to succeed. Every camper will have to opportunity to try new things and challenge themselves, experience nature and make new friends.
Campers are divided into age specific groups: Pioneers (Grades K-2), Explorers (Grades 3-4), Voyageurs (Grades 5-6) and Adventurers (Grades 7-9). Every camper gets to choose what programs they participate in, and every age group has special programs that only they get to experience. Each cabin group also gets to go on an outdoor experience appropriate to their age and skill level. In addition to the activities they get to experience with their own age group, campers will also enjoy programs with the whole camp, including exciting morning wake-ups, wide games and songs and stories around the campfire each night.
Cabin groups are always made up of campers of the same age and gender, and there are always two counsellors per group. Campers are supervised at all times, and their staff have all the necessary training and certifications to lead them through their programs. Our incamp programming blends personal choices with memorable group experiences.
There are many different activities for our campers to experience. There is a strong individual choice component to our camps, allowing campers to choose from a variety of programs including Climbing Wall, Archery, Kayaking, Crafts, Drama, Nature, Circus Tricks, Survival Skills and more! All programs are age appropriate, and each age group has a unique program to challenge themselves at, such as Vertical Playground for Explorers, Zipline for Voyageurs, or High Ropes for Adventurers.
Each camper gets to go on an out-trip appropriate to their skill and age. For many campers the out-trip is a large part of the camp experience, and often the crowning event of their stay. Trips offer unique opportunities to experience nature, strengthen group bonds through cooperation and encouragement, and to meet new challenges and accomplish goals together. An integral part of the group experience, cabin groups gain important outdoor experiences, led by qualified and experienced staff.
In addition to the standard camp activities and out trips, woven throughout the entire Camp Warwa experience are moments of imagination, celebration and wonder. Costumes are as common as clothing, bunkhouses become secret forts, and each night ends with a campfire filled with songs and stories. This magic, combined with a supportive community that encourages campers to challenge themselves, is the recipe for unforgettable adventures.
