Choice Camps Recommendation of Muskoka Woods

Located in the beautiful woods of Rosseau, Ontario, Muskoka Woods offers an amazing summer retreat for kids and teens. Voted #1 by Toronto City Parents Magazine, Muskoka Woods encourages campers to grow mentally, physically, spiritually and socially. With literally hundreds of activities to choose from, campers will have no trouble filling their schedules. Each activity is meant to foster community spirit and Christian values, as well as boost self-confidence and gain new learning experiences. Make lifelong friends and memories at Muskoka Woods trying things youve never experienced before!

Program Description

Muskoka Woods campers sign up for their own schedules and pick six electives for the day. If campers are interested in more specialized programs, they can sign up for a more in depth program that highlights their interests as well as integrating other camp activities as well. Campers spend the day on their individually selected activities and regroup throughout the day for lunch, dinner and evening group programs.

Muskoka Woods is offering several new programs this year, including Body Motion, which emphasizes the positives of healthy living, Cooking Fanatic, which introduces campers to the science of cooking and honing techniques, and Eco-Kids for the nature detective in every camper. By being able to choose their activities, campers are encouraged to try new things and make new friends by branching out of their comfort zones.

Camp is divided into four age groups: Wild (7-9), J1 (10-11), J2 (12-13), and Senior High (15-17). For older teens that want a different type of experience, Muskoka Woods offers the CEO program, which is a four week stay 15 to 17-year-olds can apply for. From community service in New Orleans to personal development, the CEO program is a lifechanging experience. Teens participate to make the transition from camper to counselor while focusing on leadership and youth development.
