What will a typical day look like?

All of our days at Camp are filled with lots of fun activities including archery, climbing wall, and high ropes! Programs are different depending on the age and program of the campers, but most follow a similar daily schedule template. Click on the schedule below to see what a typical day looks like.

Cabin Activities

This is time throughout the day that cabins get to spend together doing fun activities and getting to know each other better. This includes all manner of programs such as wall climbing, archery, canoeing, slingshot, crafts, nature programs, orienteering, team giant swing, high ropes, zipline and more!  Note that some programs such as wall climbing and archery are done by all campers, while others are age specific.  See our list of Camp Programs for more details.

Meals

Three healthy, filling, and familiar meals per day are provided to overnight campers in addition to an afternoon and evening snack. Servings are hearty, and our food services staff are experienced in preparing meals in a camp setting.

Camp Warwa is a nut-free camp and can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free and gluten-free diets. If your camper has any dietary needs, please let us know prior to their arrival at camp, so our cooks can plan ahead.

Note: This menu is a sample of some of the delicious meals we offer at camp! We have a rotating menu throughout the summer.

Bunkers Choice

In the afternoon campers have Bunker’s Choice.  This is a time when all campers get to choose from a variety of fun activities.  They are different each day and often include fun favorites such as slip and slide, crafts, board games, soccer, forest exploring, reading time and more.  Bunkers Choice is both playful and restful; some unstructured play time after a fun day full of programs.

Wide Game

Our wide games are unique and fun and are often a highlight of the week for many campers. These are played with the whole camp community.  They can include fun twists on camp favorites like Capture the Flag, as well as sweeping adventures that take campers through a range of fun challenges.  There may be costumes.


Campfire

Cookies, Campfire, Songs and Skits are what our evenings are all about. We end our days together around the campfire, having fun.

Fireside Chat

Each Cabin ends the day together talking about their day. Fireside Chat topics could include what were the best parts of your day, did you learn anything new, what challenged you!

Day Camp Programs

Our Day Camp programs are open for youth age Graduating Grades K-6. Our Day Camps are a great introduction to our programs and feature many activities. It’s summer camp, but you get to sleep in your own bed each night! The Day Camp Program is for all genders. Check out our Dates & Availability page for the weekly options. Activities include archery, climbing wall, slingshot, nature programs, and other camp favourites. This camp runs from 9 am to 5 pm each day.

Non-Binary & LGBTQ2S+ Campers

Camp Warwa believes that diversity and inclusion are essential qualities of a community. We are an organization that welcomes people from all manners of cultural backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations, and communities. Camp Warwa is a place where everyone is welcome, and an individual’s gifts and life experiences are celebrated!

We talk openly with our campers about everyone’s pronouns. Everyone’s pronouns and names are respected.

All Gender Accommodation

Camp Warwa welcomes children and youth from all across the gender spectrum.  Our goal is to ensure that every person who attends Camp is welcome, included and celebrated for who they are!  For our Adventurer groups, we offer “male” cabins/tents, “female” cabins/tents, “co-ed” tents (one tent for males and one tent for females), and “all-gender” cabin options.

The All-Gender cabins have a private changing room. They are a good option for children who prefer to bunk with children of other genders, for children who want to bunk with a friend who is a different gender, or for campers who feel this group/week is the best fit for any reason.  If you have a specific question or concern about discussing your child’s bunk, please contact us at info@campwarwa.org.

Working towards Gender Neutral Bathrooms

At Camp Warwa, we are building a gender-neutral bathroom, as our bathrooms are currently gendered male and female.  Campers are welcome to use the most comfortable bathroom and feel supported by their counsellors and fellow campers.
