Algonquin Camps

An Algonquin summer camp allows kids to develop their interest in nature and interact with other kids while exploring the largest provincial park in Canada. Algonquin Park is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, along with a wide selection of wildlife, ranging from wolves to bears to moose.

Algonquin Park is a world renowned natural sanctuary where moose lounge in shallow ponds munching on water lilies, loons chortle and call and wolves and coyotes howl at the moon. Canoeing or summer camping in Algonquin Park is a quintessential Ontario kids' experience that every child should experience at least once. The wilderness of Algonquin is a place where kids discover things about themselves and their world that they could not discover anywhere else.

Why attend an Algonquin camp?

Camps in Algonquin Park offer your son or daughter all the usual summer activities you can imagine, including swimming, canoeing, hiking, campfires and more. There are summer camps for boys only and girls only, as well as coed camps, which provide an extensive variety of activities including outdoor recreational programs, canoe trips, water and land sports, and ecology instruction. They also have arts activities, such as performing arts and dance, plus painting, crafts, and leadership and team building programs for those kids who need a bit of extra encouragement or enjoy helping others.

At an Algonquin Park camp your child not only has the chance to further their interests but learn more about their environment and what’s unique and special about Ontario national parks at the same time.

What can you expect an Algonquin camp to cost?

Since these camps are situated in Algonquin Park, they are primarily overnight camps and will cost more than a day camp, anywhere from $700 to over $1,000 depending on the length of your child’s stay. The fees generally include accommodation, meals, equipment and activity supplies, and other various fees depending on the camp. It’s best to contact the camps of your choice directly to inquire about what is or isn’t included in the fee.

How to choose the right camp in Algonquin Park

So how should you go about choosing the best summer camp experience in Algonquin? Chat with your child if possible about what they would be most comfortable with. Would they prefer a camp with all boys or all girls? Would they enjoy wilderness trips and a lot of outdoor activities? What would they enjoy and benefit from? And what would work best for your family? If you aren’t sure whether your child will thrive at a specific camp, contact them directly to speak with the camp director and see what they suggest or take a tour if possible.

Algonquin park summer camps offer a singular experience that we cannot encourage strongly enough. Kids who experience Algonquin Park together will be certain to create memories to last a lifetime. In addition to all the fun they will have, they will learn a wealth of information about nature, ecology and the wilderness.
