Summer Day Camps Details, Dates & Rates

226911267_10159719526018055_3716362761748493209_n.jpgJoin us for an exciting summer! 

We operate a weekly day camp at our Camp in Longford Mills throughout the summer. Many of our campers come for multiple weeks! Families choose our day camp because we provide complimentary lunches, snacks and transportation from Orillia - that's right, it's all included!

This summer we are excited to announce that our Summer Day Camps are now under the umbrella of our new program, the Learning Centre. The Learning Centre launched in September 2021 and had a very successful school year acting as an outdoor, experiential and nature-based supplement to children's education. We are excited to bring some themes from the Learning Centre to the Summer Day Camp program as we merge two excellent programs creating a fantastic experience for children. These themes include:

  • fostering a strong connection to ourselves and each other
  • an appreciation for nature
  • an experiential & creative focus on exploring camp

All the incredible elements of our traditional summer day camps like canoeing, rock climbing, arts, kayaking, outdoor living skills, archery, nature study, drama, sports and, the most popular program, swimming are in the schedule! 

The Nitty-Gritty Details About Our Day Camps...

  • Our programs are open to all youth born in 2010-2016. First priority will go to youth in the years listed above. If your child does not fit within this age range and you are interested in the program, please email info@campcouchiching.com and we will consider your request in mid-April. Unfortunately we are unable to hold spaces given the popularity of the program.
  • Fees include programming supervised by our trained and caring staff, transportation to/from Orillia, lunch and snacks, any materials used in programming plus so many activities! There are no hidden or additional fees.
  • Accommodation for dietary restrictions and allergies can typically be made. Families can supplement any food with food which is nut free.
  • Our staff to camper ratio typically exceeds 1:10. Specialty staff help with activities requiring additional qualifications or skill (like lifeguard, climbing instructors, etc). In addition to this ratio all of our admin, management and health care staff are also available.
  • All our programs are $325/5-day experience or $260/4-day experience. These programs are tax exempt. There are discounts when you register multiple children from the same family & even bigger discounts if you pay in full prior to May 4. The discounts can be viewed when you log in to apply for a camp spot.
  • Our camps have approximately 30 camper spots each week. We welcome children of all gender identities. We can accommodate some campers with specialized needs with your input & support.
  • We expect some COVID restrictions will be in place for Summer 2022 but we do not know what these will be at this time. We will do what Simcoe Muskoka Public Health guidance tells us we legally have to do in order to operate. We don't expect to have these guidelines from Public Health until May or June 2022 and have been told that the provincial election on June 1 will affect the timing of getting these guidelines to Camps. At this time, we do not have a policy requiring any of our guests to be vaccinated from COVID but we do require all of our staff to meet full vaccination requirements for the province of Ontario. We will be very flexible with refunds if any of the public health requirements, which we legally must follow, aren't suitable for your family.
  • Drop off for your campers at the Orillia bus stop at 8:45-8:55 a.m. for a 9:00 a.m. school bus departure to camp.
  • Drop off at the Hub between 8:45- 9:00 a.m. Parents/guardians must remain in their cars if dropping off in person. We will greet campers at their vehicle.
  • Pick up at the end of the day is 5:30 p.m. at the Orillia bus stop.
  • Pick up at the Hub location is from 4:45 and 5:00 p.m. Parents/guardians must remain in their cars if picking up in person. We will bring campers to your vehicle.
  • Families can choose different transportation methods for the start or end of the day at time of registration
  • The Day Camp Hub is located at 6536 Rama Road approximately 3 kms north of Casino Rama.
  • Our Orillia bus stop is at 175 Oxford Street in South Orillia. This is the site of the former Regent United Church and located behind Regent Public School.
  • Our staff team receives online and in-person training prior to working with each group of campers. We follow all qualification requirements as required to operate in Ontario plus often exceed the standards required by the Ontario Camps Association.
