WAKE UP / POLAR BEAR SWIM
Sunrise brings the morning polar bear swim, for those who aren’t afraid to take a chilly dip!
The most important meal of the day is served bright and early here at camp.
Archery has a great deal of appeal to many of the campers. Every boy is taught proper use of a bow & arrow. Kilcoo levels are a goal for beginners and experts alike!
Campcraft is one of the more popular activities at camp. Campers learn the essential components of camping, from making a fire and cooking a meal to setting up a tent and hanging a pack.
Every safety precaution is taken for expert swimmers and beginners alike. Non-swimmers are given lessons in a safe and protected buoyed-off area at the sandy beach. For the experienced, there are three 20m enclosed pools at the Tower, as well as a marked free-swim area. Qualified lifeguards are always in attendance.
With the ring of the bell, lunch is served. It’s time to refuel!
The perfect opportunity to write a letter home, read under a tree, or do some cloud-watching.
Windsurfing is one of the more popular water activities at camp. Junior sails and boards are provided to help beginners learn, and patient, qualified instructors help each camper achieve a desired goal by the end of the month. Kilcoo’s protected bay and sandy beach make for an excellent area to learn windsurfing.
At Kilcoo, one of our prime aspirations is to help every boy feel at home in a canoe, as well as all other water-craft. Our program offers campers the opportunity to achieve Ontario Recreational Canoeing Association canoeing levels.
Depending on their ability, campers may find themselves scaling our 10 m climbing tower, traversing one of the longest and most unique aerial courses in Canada, or rock climbing outside camp.
After a full day, it’s time to take care of some big appetites.
Flags are lowered for the night.
Mail call is followed by camper’s choice of activities!
One last dip in the lake to cool down before bed!
