    COVID-19 Response 

    March 11, 2021

    Camp Muskoka’s COVID Task Force, with guidance from Public Health and the Ontario Camps Association, continues to meet on a regular basis to develop safety plans and protocols for a safe 2021 summer camp experience for campers and staff. We are hopeful and optimistic to be able to open.

    As the acceleration of vaccine rollout may have a significantly positive affect on summer camp operations, our strategy is to share our detailed protocols and safety plans by early May so we can clearly communicate current up to date plans for how we will create a Camp Muskoka experience that is SAFE & FUN in 2021 this coming summer.

    Some of the protocols and safety plans we are preparing for:

    - establishing camper cabin group cohorts - scheduled cabin cohort activities driven by a 'choose your adventure' cabin collaboration - regular health screening - regular rapid testing for campers and staff at camp -sanitisation of program equipment before and after each use -social distancing between cohorts during meals and activities -increased frequent handwashing -a ‘kiss and ride’ approached camper drop-off and pick-up procedural program

    We look forward to the possibility of giving kids an incredible and magical experience for the summer of 2021!

    Camp Muskoka SAFE & FUN for 2021!

  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Camp Muskoka

    our take

    Fun is a priority at Camp Muskoka, though values are as well. Overnight, coed sessions in the heart of cottage country as well as the Canadian shield, the programming is active and varied.  A low camper to staff ratio is a draw, as is the breadth of programming. Campers choose daily from a wide array of activities, from the strikingly modern (flyboarding, paintball) to the very core of the camp tradition, including guitar, art, and camp craft. Camp-wide events are a chance to get loud, though the cabin groups and specialty activities allow campers a chance to exercise their quieter sides. The younger campers stay in a lodge, which is unique in the world of camping, designed to offer a sense of community. The older campers stay in cottages that sparkle with all the mod cons located within them. In all of that, the quality of the offering is what rightly catches parents’ and campers’ attention alike. From registration, to staffing, to food service, the camp is expertly and efficiently run.

    This was an outstanding experience for an Aussie kid! We don't have the summer camp culture and it was something really special to be a part of. The standards of the facilities at Camp Muskoka were extremely high! We loved the aerial park experience. And the counselors were the BEST!

  • What's New

    Director's Message

    Justinian Scott Creed / Drew Black, Executive Director / Camp Director

    Thank you for considering Camp Muskoka as your summer camp destination.

    Over the years, our team has spoken with thousands of campers, their families, and our staff, asking “What is it about Camp Muskoka that keeps you coming back?” Time and time again we have been told “I had SO much FUN!”, “I made so many friends”, “Camp Muskoka is a place where I am free to be myself”, “My summer home”, “A place where I belong”. It is truly humbling to know that Camp Muskoka has meant so much, to so many.

    Ultimately, we are in the business of making “happy campers” and helping children to believe in themselves. Camp Muskoka is philosophically grounded in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Simply put, we firmly believe that everyone has physiological needs that must be met in order to have any hope of meeting their more refined needs. For example, a camper won’t be able to enjoy the mental and physical activities at camp without proper nutrition or a comfortable good night’s sleep. Likewise, a camper won’t be able to build confidence and friendships if they don’t feel safe. Whether it be providing our campers with healthy well-balanced meals throughout the day, having air conditioned lodging to ensure a good night’s rest or nurturing a healthy and safe environment so campers are recognized for their personal achievements; everything we do is about helping our camper’s reach their own potential.

    The consistent achievement of such a positive community cannot be had without the participation of all of its members, including the campers. Therefore, we have created a simple yet comprehensive set of expectations for all to follow:
    FUN: The number one rule at Camp Muskoka. We want all campers to have fun at all times!
    RESPECT: No one is having fun when they feel disrespected. We expect all members of the Camp Muskoka community to be respectful to themselves, each other, the facility and the environment. To put it quite simply, “Treat others the way you would like to be treated.”
    HONESTY: We teach our campers the value of honesty by acknowledging that not only is it okay, but it is completely normal to make mistakes. It is what we do about our mistake that is important. By being honest with ourselves and those around us, we not only learn from our mistakes but also allow others to learn as well.
    ACCOUNTABILITY: Being responsible for our own words and actions ensures that we have a positive effect on the Camp Muskoka community while building a safe, enjoyable living environment for everyone.
    INTEGRITY: By being, respectful, honest and accountable we all contribute to fostering a community with integrity where everyone is free to have fun, be safe, and feel accepted for who they are.

    We hope you will make Camp Muskoka your choice for an exciting summer camp adventure. Should you have any further questions please feel free to contact our office and one of our friendly staff will be happy to speak with you. We look forward to seeing you this summer at Camp Muskoka!

    Where friendships begin... and FUN never ends!

    Stories

    • From Our Campers

      "I love Camp Muskoka because it is has beautiful atmosphere, tons of tall healthy green trees and a beautiful dark blue lake to swim in. The people are kind, like the staff members and the campers. Camp Muskoka is a great experience. Kayaking and canoeing are only two of the activities I tried for the first time and loved! Another part of the camp that I liked was the huge bright bomb fire at night, the stories of how the camp was founded were great, and the songs were fun to sing along to. The food at Camp Muskoka is great! I like lunch time because afterwards we get to have tuck time and buy all sorts of candy!" - Samantha, Camper

      "Camp Muskoka is the best place ever. It is where I have learned Leadership and Friendship, all in one. I met the coolest people; they are very energetic and lively. The staff are kind and very comforting. The activities are so amazing that I do not know where to start. Swimming is so exciting with "The Iceberg" and the water trampoline, that I find it so hard to leave. My favourite all time activity, is the karaoke dance party! Dancing with all your friends, and to make it even more exciting, they mix in some karaoke. The food at Camp Muskoka is amazing. Every day I would look forward to another tasty meal. My favourites would have to be the pizza and the fresh omelettes. When my parents come to pick me up I am very happy to see them after being away from home for so long, (but it actually goes by very fast) I think in the back of my head it is so sad that I have to leave. Camp Muskoka is very family friendly. At the Family BBQ they have different activities for the parents. The most exciting part of the BBQ was when my Dad and I won three legged race! When we were almost at the finish line we were in second place, but we picked up the pace and won. This year I can't wait to get back!" - Grace, Camper
       

    • From Our Parents

      "It goes without saying that the son we picked up as not the one we left behind a week before at Camp Muskoka. He was full of confidence and somewhat changes. Over the coming months, we noticed more and more little positive changes. We attribute these 100% to his experience at Camp Muskoka, that without a doubt changed our son. I cannot emphasize this enough to you. He is more open to new experiences and his confidence that wasn't present 2 years ago. Once he found Camp Muskoka, he found himself and found the boy we always thought was inside. We look forward to his experience at Camp Muskoka because each year is a stepping stone in his development. Thank you Camp Muskoka from the bottom of my heart!" - Lisa, Parent

      "My son went to Camp Muskoka last summer for a week, it was his first overnight camp so I was a little nervous. The staff made me feel very comfortable when we dropped him off. At the end of the week when I went to pick him up he wasn't even packed, he looked up at me and said "is it Saturday already??" He had so much fun that he did not want to come home. He loved everything about Camp Muskoka, the food, the activities, the staff and the friends he made. This year we are sending him for 2 weeks and he can't wait!" Pat, Parent

       

       

    • The Camp Muskoka Experience

      A Day At a Glance At Camp Muskoka, we believe that the magic of the camp experience starts with the sharing of a community; helping campers develop new skills while building self-esteem and developing leadership abilities; all while exploring the wonders of nature. A truly incredible summer vacation! Another important aspect of the Camp Muskoka experience is encouraging new friendships, which start from the moment our campers arrive. Every camper is placed into their cabin group and teamed up with new friends. Together these cabin mates will share the Camp Muskoka experience.
