“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

Highly rated experience

Just wanted to say thanks for what sounds like a fabulous two weeks for Ben and Victor – they’re already plotting their return next year which is a testament to how highly they rated the experience. Could you also pass on my thanks to “Bones” and “Band-aid” who called us a couple of times to let us know that everything was ok – that was really appreciated here. Enjoy the rest of the summer and hope to see you in 2014. – Rog

Enthusiasm and Leadership

Thanks for two weeks of fantastic camp days. Both my campers came home with lots of enthusiastic stories! I told you my daughter was made for camp! (she even won the long distance swim). My son came home very very happy, wants to come for a month next year and wants to be junior staff the year after. I don’t know what you do at that camp, but he loves it and it brings out such enthusiasm, leadership drive and excitement that is wonderful to see. I think the counsellors have a great role to play in this. Thank you for hiring a terrific crew. Best wishes, Ellen

Discovering Canada

Adrian has just had a great time at the camp. Thank you for having given him the opportunity to discover for the first time Canada with kids of his age. A unique opportunity for a 15 y old Franco-German kid. Special thanks to Adrian’s counsellors of Hawk’s cabin who took very well care of Adrian and the rest of the team. Kind regards Alexandre

Ping Pong Fun!

Liam had a wonderful time. He said he wished he could go more than once a year. He is also now being a bit kinder to his little sister …almost like he missed her? One thing that I find really funny is how much he talks about the ping pong. Thanks, Shalen

Boosting Self Confidence

This is a belated huge thank you for welcoming my son in your camp last August. As you know, he came in a bit worried about the new surroundings, the new language… Needless to say, he did not want to leave and has made friends in the few days he was there. This has been a tremendous experience for him, boosting his self-confidence, discovering new sports, having lots of fun. I cannot express how grateful we are. We are also grateful that you accepted for us to take him away before the end the school year here starting earlier than we anticipated… He is already talking about next year ( “it has to be the same weeks, mum, so I

New Experiences at Day Camp

Our 6-year-old daughter, Arden, had a great time at Otterdale Day Camp. She was so excited to go every day. She LOVED all the girl councellors, plus Clifford, Starsky and Simba. They encouraged her to try new things and I know her self-confidence will build in each of the coming years at Camp Otterdale. Thank you to Sue and Jeff for allowing the campers to try one overnight experience at the end of the week to see what it was like. Arden performed on stage with the other girl day campers and had a great time. She is disappointed she was not going back until next year, the week went too fast. She is looking forward to overnight camp next
