These camps can be commonly found all across Canada, and camps in other categories often fit into this group. Traditional summer camps are for everyone - fitting right in with Canada's reputation for inclusivity.

facilities and accommodation

Accommodations are different at each camp, but you'll usually be staying in a cabin with bunks and electricity. Some camps may have a more rustic or outdoor atmosphere, but still offer a similar range of activities. Meals are mostly served in a large dining hall.

You can learn more about the accommodations during your interview with your Camp Director.
