Family summer camps

Find summer camps for the whole family listed below

Family camps offer many of the same features as traditional camps. Counsellors engage children in a range of structured activities; other programs are geared to adults.

Time is also set aside for parents and their children to participate in activities with other families.

Family camps are a wonderful way for families to get out and enjoy nature together. There are many camps throughout northern Canada that allow families to interact with the natural world and enjoy each other's company at the same time. It can be a way for families to grow together in ways not possible anywhere else.
