  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Canadian Adventure Camp

    our take

    The Canadian Adventure Camp has a focus on gymnastics, including some very skill-based and frankly difficult activities, such as silks, which was added fairly recently. “We’ve also added hoops, these are all kind of like cirque, or circus elements,” says Justin Gerson, admitting that “it’s quite a difficult sport.” Still, even though a majority of campers don’t attend for the gymnastics program, they all try it, as they do the full range of activities, many of which—such as the gyro—are provided precisely because they are atypical. Campers are encouraged to get out of their comfort zones, to some extent, in order to grow into a better understanding of their strengths, talents, and capabilities. There is an attention to skill development, though character development is a goal of the program as well. Set on a private island in Temagami, with the full range of camp traditions, there’s certainly a lot to love. Staffing is sport specific, with experienced coaches in all of the activity areas. Leadership of the camp has also been consistent, with Skip Connett at the helm since he founded the Canadian Adventure Camp in 1975.

    Director's Message

    Skip Connett and Justin Gerson, GREAT LEADERSHIP TEAM

    Our goal every summer is to help young people grow into responsible, well- rounded citizens by expanding their skills and knowledge within the fun and friendship of a warm camp atmosphere. At the end of their camp experience, we want campers to leave not only with fond memories and firm friendships, but also a variety of valuable life skills to lay the groundwork for their future.

    By providing a strong character-building atmosphere where campers develop the capacity to set and work towards personal goals, we help them to gain an increased sense of confidence, a ‘can-do’ attitude, improved social skills and the ability to live successfully with others.

    Senior Camp Director

    F.B. (Skip) Connett is a full-time camping professional who has been leading youth in camping and outdoor activities for over 40 years. A former long-time Director and Board member of both the Canadian and Ontario Camping Associations, he is a holder of the Award of Honour from the Canadian Camping Association, is an Honourary Life Member of the Ontario Camps Association and is a Fellow and former President of the Society of Camp Directors. Skip is the founder and president of Canadian Adventure Camp.

    Camp Director

    Justin Gerson B.B.A. is a long time member of Canadian Adventure Camp. His background in gymnastics originally brought him to C.A.C as a camper and then as a coach. After several years as Head Gymnastics Coach at Canadian Adventure Camp, Justin began working fulltime for camp in 2005 and was appointed Camp Director in 2008. He leads by example and fosters mutual respect which results in a motivated and engaged staff team. His love for working with children drew him to camping as a career, and the children remain his first priority. He is committed to building a positive relationship with each camper.

    Sports Director

    Tom Zivic, Professor Emeritus in Sport and Recreation at York University was one of the most successful coaches of the Canadian National Gymnastics Team for over 25 years. He enjoys international renown as a Gymnastics Coach, Teacher and Judge. In his role as our Sports Director, Tom is involved in all aspects of camp sports activities. He was our Gymnastics Director at C.A.C. for 22 years until his current appointment as our Sports Director.

    STAFF

    At Canadian Adventure Camp, we know there is nothing more important than the health and safety of our campers, and this is always our number one priority. With this in mind, CAC staff are carefully hand-picked by our Directors, and provided with superior training to ensure they are well equipped for the job and ready for the role of a lifetime!

    We pride ourselves in the high quality of our staff and the fact that many return year after year, from countries all around the globe! A good number of our staff have been campers themselves, and completed our esteemed Leader in Training program before joining the Staff Team.

All thanks to C.A.C."
