Divided into cabins by age and gender, our traditional camp programs (either 2, 3 or 4-weeks) offer the best is summer camp experiences. Each night, campers visit our famous program board to select their programs for the following day. At Can-Aqua we place special emphasis on individualized teaching, which allows each camper to move through programs at their own pace. Our awards system is intricate and ensures that growth and development is recognized and interlaced between simple fun. In addition to activity selections, campers take part in a mix of programs divided by cabin, section, team, gender and full camp each day. As the session progresses, campers will have the opportunity to take part in an overnight camping trip with their cabin mates. Towards the end of each session, our Can-Aqua Games are a highlight to the experience. The mini-games take place halfway through each month, followed by a larger games program at the end of each month.
