About this camp

highlights

Located on Lake Couchiching in Longford Mills, Ontario, "Cooch" is a camp that focuses on individual development and challenge by choice. With a camper population of 200, kids quickly become familiar with our environment. With a supportive staff and an accepting attitude emphasizing integration, individuals thrive here. While at camp, children choose their own adventure, picking 4 activities to participate in every day throughout their session. This allows them to challenge themselves, while still placing emphasis on the enjoyment of being young. We're a technology free camp so Camp Couchiching is a great spot for your child to unplug for a few weeks.

Director's Message

principal

Oona Ashmore, Summer Camps Director

I'm excited for our 71st year at Camp Couchiching as I am super proud to be a part of such a special place.

Camp Couchiching is a traditional summer camp that finds its success through the connections we make to our campers. Often coined a "community camp" the Cooch experience is ideal for kids who are interested in the development of social skills. 

A camp of up to 200 campers, this challenge by choice program encourages campers to engage in programs with different groups throughout the day. 

Like the thousands of people who have Camp Couchiching as a special part of their life, please join us to  "Catch a Smile" at Cooch.

Stories & Testimonials

To all the camp staff

Thank you to everyone at Camp Couchiching for giving my grandson such a great time. He talked for 2 hours straight about what he did. He kept saying "Oh, yeah and ....." He was so happy and he was very touched by all the hugging everyone did saying good bye. He said "that was really kind of cool, Nana." Thank you to all your staff for me please, you really made his summer.


Thanks Camp Couchiching

I picked up my daughters from camp today. They both had a fantastic time!!! They talked about all of the fun activities - 'big boarding', kayaking, making sandcastles, campfires, skits, theme days, games, rock climbing, high ropes and more! They also talked about making new friends and how much they loved their counselors. As a parent, I could easily see how much my daughters liked their counselors and how the counselors positively interacted with the children. The counselors (and other staff members) were also very approachable, friendly and helpful when we were dropping our children off and picking the girls up at the end of the session. We would like to say thank you very much to you and your staff for providing such a fun, safe and enriching experience for our daughters!!!! Have a wonderful fall, winter and spring! See you next summer!!


The Light Bulb Bandit

The Light Bulb Bandit (LBB) is a person of great intrigue at Camp Couchiching. I have made it my personal mission to help shed some light on this mystery. The LBB wears a black or blue bandana on his face, a black Zorro like hat, from which hangs two white light bulbs, aviator sunglasses, and a green trench coat. He first appeared at Cooch during dinner July 18, 2005 to announce his mission to rid the camp of the careless use of lights inside of cabins. His plot is to teach campers the privilege of light through a strict regiment of energy conservation. The Cooch population has varying opinions of this masked mystery. One counselor noted that he liked the LLB because he promotes energy conservation. One camper seemed satisfied with the use of their flashlight, while another felt it was "just a crazy camper looking for attention" In this reporter's opinion, his methods are worth writing about. I was fortunate enough to have the privilege of gaining an exclusive interview with this solitary being who otherwise lurks in the shadows of the camp ground. Claiming to work for the International Bandit Corporation (IBC), the LBB has been brought to Cooch as an independent contractor to rid the camp of wasteful energy use. On a personal note, I found the Bandit to be a pleasant person who, however, may be slightly insane. Born in the UK, he enjoys disco dancing and wild parties with extraordinary light shows. Over the years he has collected some 3000 light bulbs and attests that his most prized is one that "shines every color in the world, and then some".


The Bus Trip

Sitting in that parking lot. Waiting for the bus. Your van acting as an oven. But then the coach pulls into that lonely corner of the lot. The doors open and the bags come out. Your heart accelerates. Faces old and new to you appear. Parents say their final good byes and before long the bus has rolled out. The journey takes you north. It is slow but finally in the distance you see the old rundown general store. The bus turns and you are about to arrive at a place where discrimination is the only thing discriminated against. Where you're so tired after your day of running about, that foam bedding is heavenly. A land where candy is legal tender. You get off the bus with a sigh of relief because you know after the long journey, you've finally arrived home again.
