John Island Camp
Everyone should have the opportunity
to make endless summer camp memories.
Adventure Camp Sessions
For cabin time, campers and counsellors select programs specific to the cabin groups interests. These programs are discussed and selected on the first day when campers arrive and can range from any of the programs that John Island has to offer (like zip-line, high ropes or sailing) or could be more creative programming that the staff have planned.
In the afternoon campers will have the opportunity to take part in program streams. Stream choices include: Waterfront, Outdoor Living Skills (ODLS), Air Adventure (Ropes). Streams are selected on the first day of camp.
- In the Waterfront Stream, campers will be divided into smaller groups on the waterfront where they will take part in sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, boogie boarding and other water based games and activities.
- In the Outdoor Living Skills Stream, campers will be divided into smaller groups and take part in out-tripping and survival skills. Campers will take part in fire building, shelter building, orienteering, map reading, trip preparations and packing, and other nature and environmental programming. The groups will also go on an overnight hiking or canoe trip experience.
- In the Air Adventure Stream, campers will be divided into smaller groups and will participate in our ropes course program. They will start off with low ropes and initiatives to build trust and teamwork and move on to the the elements and zipline as they progress through the week. High elements include: Climbing Wall, Vertical Playpen, Bosun Chairs, Team Travers and Dangle Duo.
