We can't wait to see you at Hart Lake!

Camp Big Canoe is hoping for and anticipating the return of our regular summer camping programs in 2022! Here are some of things you will see this summer:

6-, 7- and 12-day Sessions

For 8 to 14 year old campers, an unforgettable overnight camp experience on our own private lake! Days are filled with swimming, paddling, crafting and so much more, including our legendary campfires, campwide games, theme days and canoe trips

High School Credit Leadership Courses

The most fun you will ever have taking a class! Our "Outdoor Skills" and "Leader In Training" programs give 15 and 16 year olds the opportunity to earn OSSD credits while learning valuable outdoor and leadership skills

PeeWee Camp

If your 6 to 9 year old camper is ready for an overnight camp experience, PeeWee Camp is ready for them! Experienced staff welcome campers to a fun and safe introduction to camping at Big Canoe in this 5-day stay

Camp Big Canoe is an overnight camp for boys and girls aged 6-16 affiliated with the United Church of Canada. Located on 240 acres surrounding private Hart Lake in the beautiful Muskoka district of Ontario, Canada, our campers are given every opportunity to experience the challenge and rewards of outdoor living and to appreciate their natural environment.
