Camp Can-Aqua is Building for the Future

Can-Aqua plans for something remarkable for the health and wellness of our campers.

In memory of our founder, Camp Can-Aqua has committed to move forward on building a new health and wellness centre to commemorate our camp founder, Louis Gyori.

Initially the home and office for Lou as he started to build the camp we now know and love, our health centre is in need up improvements as we continue to strive for excellence in camping.

The decision to build a new health centre in his honour has been a planned and intentional one. Lou lived life to the fullest and was committed to healthy living. Active both on land and water and often seen bare footing across Beaver Lake, Lou had a spark for life. His focus on fitness and nutrition was decades ahead of the curve and his passion to instill a healthy lifestyle in everyday of camp was evident. Situated in the heart of our Camp, the new “Gyori Wellness Centre” will keep the memory of Lou at our core and will ensure his presence continues to be felt.

We hope all who have been touched by Lou will join the effort in building this new health centre. There are many ways to support and we’ve been blown away from all the contributions of time, materials and money we have received to date. Full details regarding the fundraising campaign for the Centre have been posted on our website in the “Alumni” section.

Remembered by his staff and campers with love and admiration, one said:

“Louis Gyori is a man that inspired me . . .The world would be a greater place if everyone could be like Louis and although it isn’t possible we can all try and try to help others see life like he did.”

In addition to the building itself, time and attention is going to be put into the landscape around the building. With an interest in alumni engagement, this work will be taking place over our Alumni weekend in May of 2016.

A ribbon cutting ceremony has been planned for June 25th and all are invited to attend and take part in this very important dedication as we honour the roots of Can-Aqua and the man who started it all.
