Unfortunately, in-person programs are not being offered in 2020 due to the pandemic. We are offering FREE online interactive programs for campers of all ages, as well as our Leaders-in-Training program online to campers turning 15 or 16 years old this calendar year. Find out more.
Camping at Big Canoe is an experience like no other
Taking full advantage of our beautiful site, the Camp Big Canoe program is designed to build confidence, improve relationships, build empathy, and have fun. We want campers to experience the Spirit of Camp Big Canoe and then Keep It Alive Throughout the Year. Whether it is in crafts or in a canoe, the Spirit of Camp Big Canoe is in everything we do.
Our 6-, 7- and 12-day Sessions give campers the opportunity to camp with friends in an overnight capacity. Campers sleep in sturdy wood-platformed canvas tents that complete the sense of being close with nature.
Camp Big Canoe practices Unit Camping. This is the philosophy that as a group we camp together, we live together, and we play together. Throughout most of the day, campers will spend program time traveling as a unit with their counsellor, visiting the different program areas. Each unit consists of six to seven campers of similar age. In the afternoons, campers are then given an opportunity to discover more personal interests and can sign-up for Streams and Individual Interests.
