A Typical Day
Take A Flying
Leap Into it
8:00am Morning Wake Up Bell
Good Morning Campers!!!
The camp day starts every morning at 8AM! When the morning bell rings, the counsellors will round the troops and get dressed for the morning.
8:15am Flag Pole and O Canada
As the camp files down in the morning, we organize around the flag pole to sing O Canada. This is followed by the “Cabin Of The Day” performing a small skit to introduce the day. We also do lost and found so we can help make sure campers return home with their belongings.
The most important meal of the day! It’s still early, so this is the one meal of the day that we don’t get too rowdy…just lots of conversation and jokes with friends. A great meal to fuel up for the day!
9:15am Cabin Clean Up
You may not think cleaning up is fun, but at Can-Aqua, it’s one of the best parts of the day! Every morning after breakfast we go back to the cabins to let our food digest and do a light clean up as a team. Each cabin competes and adds up their clean-up scores over the session. The cabin with the highest score gets A SURPRISE!
10:00am Period 1
What did you choose??? There are more than 20 activities to take part in! Whichever you choose, it’s going to be loads of fun!
11:00am Period 2
What’s up next? Maybe some swim class, canoe, mosaics, woodworking, photo, frisbee golf, arts and crafts. Choose from over 20 activities. It’s almost lunch!
The loudest and funnest meal of the day! It’s the perfect mix of eating, chatting with friends and silly-ness!
1:30 Rest Hour
Half way through the day. Everyone needs a little break, so after lunch we head back to chill in the cabin, play some cards, or even write a letter home.
2:30pm Period 3
All rested and ready to go. Head to swimming or choose from over 20 activities and have a blast!
3:30pm Period 4
The last sign-up activity of the day. Enjoy the summer fun and choose from over 20 activities!
4:45pm Free Time
This one is all about you, whether you want to check out an activity, hang out with friends in main camp, or find a counsellor to help you gain skills for an award. It’s your choice!
6:00pm Dinner and Sign Up
Last meal of the day! Fuel up, sing with friends and sign up for tomorrow’s activities. Campers head out to the Can-Aqua Program Board with their cabin-mates and get to pick from a wide selection of activities for the next day.
7:00 Evening Program
After tuck we gather together for a fun camp-wide activity. From creative and dramatic activities like Air Bands, exploring the camp during Counsellor Hunts, or the ever popular running games where the camp is divided into teams like Capture The Flag. Lots of fun for everyone!
9:00pm Cabin Hang Out
After evening program we head back to the cabins to tell stories, play games and wind down for bed.
10:00pm Bed Time
Lights out! Time for bed…we need lots of rest for the next day of fun!
