Individual growth and challenge by choice is a fundamental theme at Camp Couchiching. Development within a safe and supportive environment is the core of our camp experience. A traditional program at its best, our success is unquestionably found within our community.
Cooch is a camp for everyone. We are an inclusive environment that supports our campers. We challenge them to take productive risks, try new things and invest in the individual experience of every camper. This investment is our starting point and the foundation in which our community is built on.
Our success is found within our Campers. As the sign on our front entrance states, Cooch is a camp where "Future Leaders Come to Play". Our campers are the substance of our community and hold within them an interest in being a part of camp year after year. Learning from those above them, our campers thrive on creativity, challenge, acceptance, and supportiveness. With an incredible camper return rate, for most kids, Cooch is a lifestyle. It is a place for positive experiences where irreplaceable bonds of friendship are founded.
Our success is found within our Staff Team. At Cooch our staff team consists almost entirely of candidates who have grown up within our organization. This elite group of individuals is committed to the preservation of the traditions and ideals at camp. A team that is totally dedicated to children and their development as campers and leadership candidates, the staff team work to ensure a camp experience beyond that which they themselves enjoyed. Loyal and devoted, our staff team stands behind the individual camper concept, striving to make every child's experience "the best ever"!
Our success is found within our Facility. At Cooch we are fortunate for the site we have. Surrounded by waterfront, and exceptionally laid out, our site is a safe and secure oasis that campers become familiar with almost immediately. With over 60 years on the shores of Lake Couchiching, our history and development represents constant improvement as we continually strive for "Excellence in Camping".
A session spent at Cooch is more then simply a place to go during the summer. When kids arrive at camp in their first summer they begin a new chapter of experience that will continue to grow year after year. A summer at Cooch is a creation of memories and a passing of traditions and experiences from one generation to the next.
