For every M14518 camper (except the junior two weekers), a canoe trip is part of the program. It brings them close to the wilderness, to themselves, and to their friends. A canoe trip is about finding peace in sun glinting off the lake, in a million stars over the campfire, in the power and grace of paddling your own canoe. Canoe trips bond and connect campers – both with each other and with their own inner (and outer!) strength.
Awakening to a silent lake, knowing that you got there by your own splendid effort, making chocolate chip pancakes on the campfire in the morning, paddling and portaging all day, sitting round the campfire watching the sun set behind the pine trees, falling asleep to loon call. This is how children become self-reliant, and come to know and love nature.
Learning is fun at M14518. Every camper chooses his or her own program every morning. Everyone must participate, but which activities they do is up to them. Our highly qualified instructors take great care to encourage beginners and challenge experts. Campers discover the joy of learning, something they'll never forget.
M14518 campers today sing in the same campfire circle where our campers gathered round the campfire almost 70 years ago. The traditions that unite us: the campfire songs, the dining hall high jinks, the early morning paddles in the mist, the same old cheers any time someone does something special. These are what make camp magical. It helps that the majority of our campers come back year after year, and grow up to be camp staff; some are the children and grandchildren of Arowhon campers.
M14518 is located deep in the interior of Algonquin Provincial Park, a 3000 square mile wilderness refuge of 2000 lakes, rivers and forest. We are on our own lake (Tepee Lake) in a magical land where loons pierce the silence with their song, moose munch on water lilies, and the canoe is the vehicle of choice.
The centerpiece of Camp Arowhon is the Main Lodge/dining hall, a heritage cedar log building from the 1920s with two stone fireplaces. The Main Lodge and a separate recreation hall/theatre each accommodate 350 people. All our sleeping cabins have bathrooms. Hot showers are located in nearby shower houses.
