Skills & Certifications
Many of our Summer Camp programs include specific skill development and certifications. Here’s some information about them.
Hug-A-Tree and Survive
Hug-a-Tree and Survive is an AdventureSmart program that helps lost children survive in the woods. It teaches children how not to become lost in the woods, and what to do should they become lost.
Outdoor Living Skills (OLS)
The goal of the OLS program is simply to promote an understanding of the natural environment and the value of minimum-impact camping. The OLS program also teaches the skills necessary to enjoy camping and the outdoors.
Ontario Recreational Canoe & Kayak Association (ORCKA)
ORCKA has 4 levels to introduce the novice or relatively inexperienced canoeist to paddling. The emphasis is on mastering the fundamentals of canoeing along with a strong grounding in water safety and safe canoeing practices. Campers will progress through the levels from year to year, equipping them with the skills and experience for our out trips.
