Swimming and Water Activities
Swimming and other water-based activities are a big part of camp life. Our staff is trained in water safety, led by a team of fully accredited lifeguards.
Children are tested for swimming ability on the first day of camp. They are then given directions as to the areas in which they are allowed to swim. Non-swimmers or weak swimmers will be restricted to a safe area where water is shallow.
There are canoes and other boats at the camp. All campers are required to wear life jackets (which are provided) before entering any water craft. Boating activities are fully supervised.
Fishing and Frog Catching
Lake Manitou is very much a “live” lake, and children so-inclined can spend their free time trying to catch the various fish and amphibians that populate the shoreline.
