CAMP LOCATION: We are located 2.5 hours from Toronto and Ottawa. Situated on 165 acres of pristine Ontario Landscape and on a private lake, our site is the starting point to exceptional programs and activities.

CAMP FACILITIES: Camp Can-Aqua has over 40 buildings on site. A private lake, full service dining hall, a large health and wellness centre, movie theatre, rec hall, Wood Working Studio, Arts and Creative Spaces, and 22 camper cabins.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Divided into cabins by age and gender, our traditional camp programs (2-weeks & 4-weeks) are the signature programs here at Can-Aqua. Each night, campers visit our famous program board to select their activities for the following day. At Can-Aqua we place special emphasis on individualized teaching, which allows each camper to move through programs at their own pace. Our awards system is intricate and ensures that growth and development is recognized and interlaced within the crazy fun.

In addition to activity selections, campers take part in a mix of programs divided by cabin, section, team, gender and the full camp on a daily basis. As the session progresses, campers will have the opportunity to take part in an overnight camping trip with their cabin mates. Towards the end of each session, our Can-Aqua Games become a highlight to the experience. Our mini games take place halfway through each month, followed by a larger games program at the end of July and August.

Campers who stay for 4-weeks not only benefit from additional instruction and program time but also have the opportunity to take part in an advanced Algonquin Outtrip, are eligible for advanced swim instruction (Bronze Med & Cross) and enjoy being part of the popular mid month “changeover program” with the directors.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Camp Can-Aqua offers two leadership programs and focuses our structured leadership development on candidates ages 15-17.

Our Leadership programs focus on the development of key social and cooperative skills in young people. Beginning at fifteen years of age, the 4 week programs encourage candidates to take on responsibilities or role modeling as they are challenged to support the campers that look up to them.

Leaders in our community, candidates will work towards achieving certified levels in First Air, CPR and NLS. Both leadership programs involve an extended outtrip as well and provide your young leaders with ample opportunities to continue to learn and grow, while taking on more responsibilities to ensure our camp community remains exceptional.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Unique to Camp Can-Aqua, in addition to exceptional summer camp programs in Ontario...we are also a manufacturer of maple syrup.

OTHER CAMP INFO: In addition to regular camp programs, Camp Can-Aqua also has remarkable specialty camp programs.

Specialty Camps at Can-Aqua have been designed to offer kids who have specific passions, a specialized focus while still submerged in summer camp life.

These single week programs ensure a focus on individual activities that campers are keen to take part in. A typical day in any of our specialty camps involved a half-day devoted to the specific program, partnered with a half day of camper selected programs from our programming board. This structure makes sure that all campers enrolled in specialty programs are still actively engaged in the day to day camp programs available.

Specialty programs do vary from year to year but can include wakeboard and waterskiing, mountain biking, photography, amateur film production, and musical theatre.
