“Memories” from Sydney

“Memories” from Sydney Personally, my favourite memory as a camper had to be my last year at Camp Otterdale this past summer. I stayed for the month of July as well as all of my friends and it was amazing just to be able to spend my last year as a camper with all of these girls who had influenced my life so dramatically. I have known these girls (and guys) since the age of ten and they never do less than bring a smile to my face as well as the staff. During July B however, we got to go on Out-trip all together which was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. We went cliff jumping, and

2013 Camp Themes

Camp Themes are a fun way to “spice-up” camp and add a unique character to each session. The themes act as a backdrop of creativity. Capture the Flag (for example) is a great game in itself but with a Space, Pirate or Superhero spin, the game becomes awesome. The session themes are seamlessly woven throughout all the program areas from ping pong to the sailing. All campers get the opportunity to participate, watch and enjoy the special activities. There are day-to-day themed events within each program. During the last few days of each two week session, we put more emphasis on the themes and include more special events. Lots of fun to be had with these exciting camp themes this
