adventure day camp

Our 2-Week Adventure Day Camps at Maskwa are a great way to spend some time this summer- outdoors, making new friends, and being introduced to the exciting sport of canoe kayak! (Ages 7-12).

adventure day camp (2-week blocks)

Adventure Day Camp is an exciting daytime summer program that focuses on fun ways to stay active and make new friends. Throughout the two weeks of camp, our experienced counsellors will provide participants with a mix of on-water and off-water activities, such as swimming, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, basketball, games, crafts and more. Weather permitting, time will be spent daily exploring the beautiful Kearney Lake in boats, with participants learning the basics of paddling in a safe environment.

program requirements

Ages 7-12 years old (children must be 7 years of age by Jan 1, 2022)

All day camp participants must be comfortable in and around the water while wearing a PFD, as participants will be in, on, and around the water for a large part of each day. As required by CanoeKayak Canada, all participants must complete a swim test on the first day of day camp before participating in any paddling activities. Maskwa's swim test involves a short continuous swim while wearing a PFD. Participants must bring their own PFD daily to camp.
