My favourite part about Camp Big Canoe

by Julia Gallucci  – Camper in 2015 & 2016 & ???

I really enjoyed doing the 3-day canoeing trip! It was a lot of work but it was a lot fun, at the same time. Carrying a Canoe a long distance is called “portaging.” We got to see a lot of cool places on the way to our campground. We saw cottages, waterfront homes, rapids, and wildlife.

When we got to the campsite we got to take a break and go swimming which was pretty fun and relaxing after all that work! We also got to build a tent and eat delicious campfire foods, like s’mores.

When we got back to Camp Big Canoe, we finally showered and ate more delicious food! Every day we were allowed to do the polar bear swim, I was the only one who actually did it! It was a bit cold, but refreshing!

I always enjoyed meeting new people and making friends with the campers and camp counselors!

If my family hadn’t moved to the USA last year, I would be going back to Camp Big Canoe every summer, forever!
