Camp Big Canoe is a not-for-profit overnight camp located in Muskoka, Ontario.

Situated on a beautiful 240-acre plot of pristine Great Lakes-St. Lawrence forest, with its very own Hart Lake, Camp Big Canoe offers dynamic and enriching camping experience for boys and girls aged 6-16.

Specializing in outdoor education, our program and facilities create a sense of community and belonging with each other and the environment. Each of our 12-day session campers will participate in an offsite camping or canoe trip ranging from one night to seven nights depending on age and program.

On site, campers will participate in such traditional camp activities as Crafts, Swimming, and Canoeing. We also boast a wealth of creativity and team building activities that include Sports & Games, Archery, Music & Drama, Arts, Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Kayaking, and a Low Ropes course.

Our Rediscovery program frames much of what we do at camp, beginning and ending each day as a community, as well as providing an opportunity to further investigate our relationships with our surroundings.
