Themes for 2019

Each week there is a different theme to the camp and the activities all relate to this theme. You'll get to use your creative side and have more fun than you can imagine! This year our themes were selected from suggestions and polling our youth through our Adventureland Facebook Page.  We encourage youth to bring along costumes related to their weekly themes.  Prizes are awarded for youth who bring along a creative costume to wear at our opening (arrival at camp) and during our Theme Night / Movie Night at camp.  

 

MEDIEVAL WEEK - JULY 1-5, 2019

Times sure were different back in the 1300's - there was no Fortnite, only Knights of the Fort.  During Medieval Week you will learn to joust, use the sword and shield and how to defend the castle. These skills will come in handy when the time comes to slay the Dragon. But do you have what it takes to sit at the Round Table? Is thou ready?

HARRY POTTER WEEK - JULY 8-12, 2019

Open your muggle eyes to the magical wizarding world all around us! Practice your spells, charms and potions to help you defend Hogwarts against the Dark Arts. Students will also be taught all about fantastic beasts (and maybe even where to find them). And remember, “happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

SUPERHERO WEEK - JULY 15-19, 2019

Our Spidey senses are tingling… something isn't right at Camp Adventureland.  Work alongside our famous staff members to hone your skills and figure out what the Legion of Doom is up to.  Learn from our lifeguard Aquaman, our archery instructor Hawkeye and our how-to-speak-in-a-very-low-voice instructor Batman.  Whether you have superpowers or not, we need you to step up and be a hero.

STAR WARS WEEK - JULY 22-26, 2019

A short time from now, at a summer camp not too far away… the battle between the Jedi and the First Order continues.  There was a rumour that Luke Skywalker was the last Jedi, but little does the First Order know that there is an entire training camp of young Jedi who will soon be ready.  Join us, you’re our only hope!

Activities

Everyday is filled with great activities! Each village rotates to different events and spends time playing and having fun.

CLIMBING / ROPES PROGRAMS

Our climbing and ropes program is very popular. These safe and fun activities promote teamwork & strengthen personal and group goals. They allow participants to complete challenges by walking across ropes and cables securely attached and strung between trees. The climbing wall is 11 meters high with forty colourful handholds. Campers wear safety harnesses, a helmet, and are constantly attached to a safety line controlled by a qualified instructor.

MOUNTAIN BIKING & SPORTS

Adventureland has over fifty mountain bikes of varying sizes and design. A professionally constructed trail through the woods allows campers to participate in a two hour, guided trail ride. A novice course is available for beginners. A novice course is available for beginners.  Helmets are supplied although youth are permitted to bring their own. 

Our Sports programs include games such as beach volleyball, badminton, soccer and – BALL HOCKEY! An obstacle course is available for use.  Campers also love playing a game called The Web of Life (Predator and Prey) in our forested pen.

DAILY SWIMMING

Relax and rejuvenate in our camp pool while being safely supervised by our lifeguards. The pool is equipped with numerous activities and pool toys and also has a water slide. All campers will visit the pool once or twice daily. It’s also a great time to get clean. Each week, a camp wide pool fun day is organized with lots of fun activities for swimmers and non swimmers.

ARCHERY & TRAMPOLINE

Whether you're a beginner or the next Robin Hood, everybody will improve their skills. The best archers from each village compete against each other and the winner receives the prestigious golden arrow! Even if you've never picked up a bow before, our staff will teach you how to hit the target.

We also know that children love to jump. A trampoline program with enclosed netting and spotters allows campers to safely learn trampoline jumps and stunts.

CRAFTS & WOODWORKING

Enjoy designing and painting a different theme related craft or woodworking project such as birdhouses and magazine racks each week. Campers can also participates in other hands on projects such as beadwork during quieter time at camp. Other programs include gimp art and weekly theme related crafts.

OTHER PROGRAMS AT CAMP

Programs are planned within each sub camp that includes basic orienteering, basic fire building and cooking. (For example, each camper cooks a tin foil dinner in a fire built by the campers under direct adult supervision). Guest speakers are invited to camp to talk about such subjects as Astronomy and wilderness animal demonstrations are presented. Campers will participate in educational games such as Web of Life, Village Campfires, weekly Scouts Own and Fun Day rotational activities that may include activities such as parachutes, jumping castles, earth ball and T-shirt tie-dyeing. A weekly camp wide campfire highlights the week. Our tuck shop is OPEN twice per week (free of charge) and all participants can choose two items (candy bars, chips, ice cream, pop, juice, water, sour candy, etc).   Lastly, youth can choose their favorite programs at an advanced level during our electives program.  Choices include: swimming lessons, advanced mountain biking, advanced climbing, outdoor cooking and creative crafts.
