Memories and friendships that will last a lifetime

Canadian Adventure Camp was founded by founder Skip Connett, and has been focusing on the growth and development of children for over 45 years.

Canadian Adventure Camp is rich in tradition and is recognized as one of Canada’s finest overnight summer camps with the vision to create unique summer experiences for children from around the world.

A Welcoming Summer Camp Atmosphere

Campers develop the capacity to set and work towards personal goals

By providing an inclusive, welcoming, and nurturing environment, we help campers to gain an increased sense of confidence, a resilient attitude, improved social skills, and the ability to live successfully with others.

Our Mission

Our goal every summer is to help young people grow into responsible, well-rounded citizens by expanding their skills and knowledge within the fun and friendships of a supportive camp atmosphere. We want campers to leave with a variety of valuable life skills to lay the foundation for their future, in addition to developing fond memories and firm friendships. We create a strong camp community centered on positive relationships and social responsibility. Our enthusiasm, love for the outdoors, appreciation for nature, and adventurous spirit is inspiring to campers and helps further their personal development.

What our parents say...

  • Excellent facilities. More importantly, excellent staff. An excellent experience for our kids in many respects ... active, outdoors, social and fun. The cost has always been a significant consideration for us, but in the end, it has been most worthwhile.

What our campers say...

  • I wanted something new before my last few years of high school and I am forever grateful that I found CAC. It is the upmost welcoming community. Their organization shocked me as well as how they balance structure and freedom/fun. I met unforgettable people who act as role models for me and discovered things about myself that I do not believe I would have acknowledged had I not got to CAC. Canadian Adventure Camp holds a special place in my heart.

  • Camp has been the single greatest factor and experience in my life. I have met my best friends here. I cannot think of a single thing that would be better than spending my summer at CAC.

  • All year round I wish I was there, yet it is only when I see the island slowly disappearing as the boat goes away, with our friends waving goodbye, that I always truly realise how important it is to me. Thank you for making my summers amazing.
