Traditional Camp-Ages 6 -12 (this age by the end of 2019)


Our traditional camps are now all "choose your own" activity based. This was always the way we ran our final week of day camp but the feedback was so positive that we're switching all of our camp weeks over to this. Each week, campers will get a selection of our traditional camp programs like canoeing, kayaking, arts and crafts, swimming, archery, high ropes and more. Every day, campers will choose what programs they want to participate in to ensure they get exactly what they are looking for and what they enjoy! In addition to our traditional activities, campers will have the opportunity to participate in other camp classics like Paint your Counsellor, Slip and Slide, Pirate Ships and Cooch Games. The adventure never ends!

Specialty Programs

For campers who are seeking a more specialized focused in their camp stay our Specialty Programs are perfect. Mixed in with daily activities tailored to the week’s theme campers will also experience free swims, quick picks and many of the other great things that Cooch has to offer! These programs all cost the same as the Traditional Programs however they have limited space and fill up quickly.
