Camper to staff ratio at camp

Kids who have attended camp through the Muskoka Woods Youth Foundation

Years of helping kids have a life-changing experience

When you support the Muskoka Woods Youth Foundation, you’re guaranteeing kids who go to camp with us:

Attend a camp like no other

There simply isn’t another overnight summer camp in Ontario with as much prime lakefront on Lake Rosseau in beautiful Muskoka. The location is only matched by the facilities including a 6-lane waterslide, 1000ft zipline, huge inflatable waterpark, beautiful boat house and bespoke leadership studio.

Get to choose from unmatched activity choices

Muskoka Woods features over 60 summer arts and athletics summer camp activities for kids and we’re always adding more. In addition to traditional summer camp activities we also feature a high ropes course, media arts and waterskiing and wakeboarding pulled by world class Nautique boats.

Are led by trustworthy staff

Muskoka Woods is led by a qualified and experienced full-time team. In addition to decades of experience at Muskoka Woods, many hold degrees in education, youth development and masters degrees in leadership. Our summer staff of 350 are the best and the brightest from around the world, allowing us to maintain a 2:4 staff:camper ratio. It’s one of the best overnight summer camp ratios in Ontario. Muskoka Woods believes in, and puts into practice world-class training and development for our staff, year round.

Grow their circle of friends

Kids who attend camp through the Muskoka Woods Youth Foundation are integrated into cabins with other guests. During the week they make new friends and in doing so grow their network for life. Many of our guests tell us that the friends they made at Muskoka Woods go on to be in their wedding parties, tell them about an opportunity for their first great job and are better prepared for life.

Why support sending kids to Summer Camp?

Summer Camp at Muskoka Woods has a way of transforming the lives of young people. And it doesn’t happen by accident. Awaiting every kid who comes to camp is an experience that will last a lifetime. From the over 60 activities they can choose from, kids learn new skills that allow them to see an even better version of themselves.  Muskoka Woods’ handpicks counselors from around the globe to build into the lives of young people.

“I’ve become a totally different person since attending Muskoka Woods. I never knew the potential I have or how strong I really am.”

What’s the cost when kids don’t come to Muskoka Woods?

The Muskoka Woods Youth Foundation is unique in the way it serves kids. Often summer camps are attended entirely by kids whose families paid for them to be there or there are camps where all the children attending have been sponsored. You can imagine the difference between the two.

The kids that come to Muskoka Woods, thanks to your gifts, are experiencing one of the best camps in Ontario, and no one knows that they were sponsored. They are part of the cabin, there is no label and there is no presumption from the other kids. Think of what that does for their confidence! Every kid should get a chance to go to summer camp, help us send them to the one where we know they’ll make lifelong friends, grow in confidence and become an even better version of themselves.
