Something for Everyone!
Every summer, DFC plans an amazing week of fun events and activities based around a theme. In past years we have explored such themes as: Meant to Be, Simply Together, Love Grows Here and On my Way.
Following a hot breakfast served in the Dining Hall, families are invited to gather at the chapel to explore the theme further through a skit presented to them, hands on activities, discussions, readings and of course, music! Reconnect with your family and centre yourself for the day.
Have your morning snack at one of the activities scheduled for you or your children. Tots (ages 5 and under) enjoy such activities as music, beach time, arts &crafts and scavenger hunts with volunteers. Children 6 & up are welcome to participate in arts & crafts (painting, scrap booking, tie dye, beading etc), sports and recreation (hikes, organized games etc.).
Meet at the Dining Hall for lunch. Will you be eating inside or having a picnic lunch? Following announcements head to the waterfront for swimming, boating, or relaxing on the beach! Before dinner join a workshop based on your interest: music, fishing, crafts, sports or simply relax and take in the camp setting.
After dinner, enjoy the many traditions of Family Camp! Campfires filled with music, games and s'mores; Zap, Capture the Flag and our popular end of the week Dance!
As much as the time connecting as a family is key to our Family Camp vision, spending time with other parents/caregivers once the little ones have gone to bed is just as important! Teens are involved in childcare so that you may attend a variety of adult socials such as Irish Night, Trivia Night and Coffee House. Enjoy food and drink in the company of other adults attending camp and recharge!
The week is full of opportunities to make connections, to reflect and most of all - to have fun! All of this surrounded by the beauty of the Laurentians in a campground setting. Hope to see you there!
Even though Camp is only one week a year, we run fun events for the entire family all year long. We hope to see you at one of our social nights, various fundraisers or outreach programs.
