The Experience

Kindle Lifelong Friendships through the magic of the Camp Muskoka Experience

At Camp Muskoka we believe the magic of the camp experience starts with a shared community, helping campers develop new skills and build self-esteem all while enjoying the wonders of nature - a truly incredible summer vacation!

At Camp Muskoka, we use a “Choose Your Own Adventure” approach to programming. Each day, campers choose from a wide variety of activities.

To maximize the campers’ experience, activities are offered at variable skill levels. For campers wishing to try new things we offer introductory and recreational level programs. For campers wishing to further develop their skills, more advanced and competitive programs are offered. Campers will also enjoy camp-wide games, camp-outs, campfires, and to celebrate the summer fun, we end off each week with a special theme day and a dance party. Activity group sizes vary as some activities such as guitar lessons are best offered in small intimate groups whereas other activities like capture-the-flag are best suited to larger groups. Popular programs are offered several times throughout the week so each camper has the opportunity to custom design their own camp experience. With more than 50 activities offered throughout each week, there is always something for everyone.

Along with all the traditional summer camp activities like swimming, sports, canoeing, and arts & crafts, we also offer several feature programs like guitar workshops, our music recording studio, and mountain biking. All feature programs are included in standard camp fees. For those adventure seeking campers, we have 5 “Specialty Programs.” These optional programs are offered at an additional fee and subject to availability.

Community living is a key component to the Camp Muskoka Experience. All campers contribute and share in community initiatives such as cabin clean up, helping to tidy up the dining hall after meals and setting up for special events.
