A sample agenda for a day at Shadow Lake
Campers stay in our clean and modern cabins. Each cabin has separate bedrooms where there are 2 campers per bedroom. All cabins are equipped with toilets, sinks and showers. In the evening, every cabin is assigned to 1 overnight awake staff.
At Shadow Lake our campers will enjoy a wide variety of both indoor and outdoor activities; all based on the interest and ability levels of our guests.
Our waterfront programs include fishing, paddle boat rides, canoeing, water trampolines, water slides, swimming and pontoon boat rides. We have a large sand bottom swimming area that is supervised by our qualified lifeguards. If waterfront is not your liking, you can always cool down at our splash pad. Take part in a game of baseball, volleyball, horseshoes, hiking, tenting or simply relax and listen to music and enjoy the beauty of nature.
Our Crafts Centre is open all day long as is our barn which can be used for basketball, indoor bowling, floor hockey and other sports.
Get up and move to Nintendo WI, Tae-Bo, aqua fit, dancercise, lake swims and power walks. In the evening, the entire camp comes together to take part in group programs such as campfires, movie nights, beach dances, talent shows, night hikes and much more.
Approximately 80 University students are hired each summer to ensure that you have a safe, enjoyable vacation.
Camp Counsellors are assigned to work with our campers in small groups. The average staff to camper ratio is 1:3. There are a limited number of spaces available to individuals requiring either 1:1 or 1:2 supervision.
In addition to Camp Counsellors we have Activity Leaders, Lifeguards, Crafts Instructors, Health Care Workers, Nutritionists, Maintenance and Housekeeping staff. Staff are supervised by our Camp Coordinators and Counselling Supervisors.
Prior to the first day of camp, all staff have to participate in a week long training program. In addition, all staff are required to obtain a police check prior to starting work.
