At YMCA John Island Camp we recognize that some younger children are not quite ready to plunge into a full week camping experience. Each summer we offer two special five-day, four night camp sessions designed just for these campers. Saplings provides the perfect introduction to camp life for the younger campers.
The cabin groups for this program typically consist of eight to ten campers and two counsellors. This program provides opportunities to explore a range of programs offered at YMCA John Island Camp with their cabin mates. Activities are selected on the first day so that all campers have a say in what programs the group will be doing. These activities and evening programs are geared to the needs and interests of children ages six to ten.
Some of the programs offered for campers to choose from during this session are: sailing, canoeing, kayaking, ropes course, climbing wall, swimming, beach games, hikes, water trampoline, outdoor living skills and a variety of other games and activities.
In the evening, all campers come together to take part in a variety of all camp programs. These programs can vary from campfire and Loo’s zoo, to active games like Capture the Flag.
