Looking for an all-boys camp in Ottawa? Camp Nominingue provides opportunities for boys to grow together through outdoor skills and wilderness tripping.

Ottawa summer camps, like other camps across Canada, offer a variety of options for kids and families from Ottawa and area. This includes camps in downtown Ottawa, Ottawa-Gatineau, Rockliffe Park, Rockland, Kemptville, Kanata, Centretown, the Glebe, Riverside Park, and Hampton Park. What better way for kids to enjoy the outdoors than at a summer camp in the Ottawa area, where kids can participate in a wide variety of camp activities such as canoeing, hiking, swimming, and even white water rafting on the Ottawa River.

Camp Nominingue, through the traditions and lore it maintains, is larger than life. The respect for nature and others that Native Americans had is inculcated in us through Camp, and passed on.

For example, a number of kids' camps in Ottawa offer special needs instruction, with a low ratio of counselors to campers.
