An Open Letter From Andrew Martin, Our Camp Director
Dear Prospective Parents,
I am thrilled to welcome you to Camp Can-Aqua and am grateful that you’ve made it to our website to see what we’re all about. Can-Aqua is one of Ontario’s premier traditional summer camps, celebrated for our exceptional programming, individualized instruction, environmental stewardship and commitment to each camper. Through navigating our website, I am confident you will be effectively guided through what we have to offer. Our photo galleries, interactive map, detailed program descriptions and clearly laid-out information will provide you with a great basis for discovering who we are and what we strive to accomplish.
Camp Can-Aqua takes pride in being a community camp. When I say that, I mean it first and foremost: our philosophy is about spending time with each other, interacting, cooperating, compromising and creating. I believe that a successful camp starts in the way its people treat each other. At Can-Aqua we talk about our issues, we celebrate our successes and we support each other’s needs. Our unique structure requires kids to be independent as they are responsible for both picking their programs daily and getting to those programs on time. This freedom and control is one of the pillars in building confident and self sufficient young people.
After spending time at Can-Aqua, it is a guarantee that your child will leave this camp with more confidence, more independence and an improved sense of self. Through our committed and exceptional staff, your child will feel welcome and will be challenged to develop new skills and take positive risks. It is our chief desire to bring out all things good in every camper.
Take your time, navigate our website, explore and discover what Can-Aqua is all about. Finding the right camp for your child is a remarkably important decision. If I can support you in anyway throughout this process, please do not hesitate to contact me through email or by telephone. I love what camping does for kids and would welcome any opportunity to talk about how Can-Aqua can become part of your child’s development.
Andrew Martin, Director
