Looking back at summer 2022 – and forward to 2023

The summer of 2022 was so exciting as we welcomed the return of campers and staff to camp island. The energy and enthusiasm were contagious as we all greeted old camp friends and met new cabinmates! What a joy to be back at camp. Every day, groups were paddling to an island for a biology cookout or a game of camouflage with another group. The winds blew and sailors harnessed the breezes out on Twelve Mile Bay. Everyone was keen to whip down the zip line and jump off the top of the big water slide! The fun went on and on.

Hurontario’s long established tripping program returned in full force in 2022 – with white water trips to James Bay; river adventures on the Coulonge and Dumoine rivers in Quebec; senior trips to our North Camp in Missinaibi Provincial Park, which were only some of the adventure-of-a-lifetime trips.

A group of senior trippers experienced the incredible rapids, wildlife and camaraderie found while tripping on the Hood River in Nunavut. Imagine tripping by canoe from the headwaters of this mighty river north of Yellowknife, all the way to Bathurst Inlet. From catching big lake trout daily, to seeing peregrine falcons circle the river and exploring the area around Wilberforce Falls (the largest falls in the Nunavut), it was an adventure never to be forgotten.

This fall, Hurontario’s skating party reunion was once again an opportunity for families to enjoy a fun afternoon skate; for our campers and staff from the summer to get together and a chance to see many summer faces in the slideshow while munching on yummy pizza. Thanks to all who joined us. And now we are busily planning for the summer of 2023- bigger and better than ever. We are very excited! With a wonderful returning staff, days filled with activities in the outdoors and an opportunity to share with camp friends and make new friends, we know it is going to a summer not to miss. Register now and save your spot. We look forward to seeing you back!
