What's Included

Camp Latona’s leadership program is for ages 15-18 (grades 11 & 12). Our Outdoor Leadership program is an empowering challenge for any teenager. The 10 day session is an advanced leadership training schedule constructed to focus on the development of initiative, responsibility, and team working, through skill-based teaching, outdoor education, and participation in all aspects of the camp operations. Our OL candidates are passionate about personal growth and are excited about the outdoors. Upon the successful completion of the program, candidates have the opportunity to graduate to our Counsellor in Training (CIT) program.

Residential (or sleepaway, or overnight) Camp at Latona is our classic week long, overnight camp experience.

We provide a home away from home for campers from across the country who want have the excitement of camp, with a personalized experience. Our small size, and high, 1:4 staff to camper ratio enables the development of unique, relationships, truly characteristic of the Latona experience. Campers are grouped by age and by gender into their small groups of 8-10.

 

With their counsellors, your children will experience living as part of a community, encouraging the formation and development of transferable life skills. While of course enjoying a full range of outdoor, land and water based activities.

 

Our Activity Specialists and Counsellors are certified, qualified and trained to deliver excellence in programming, at our activities, and for emotional and mental well being of our campers.

Each week, all of our campers take scheduled, supervised trips by land and sea into the beautiful Howe Sound. These trips are truly "as Real as it Gets!" where real outdoor wilderness skills are developed and put into practice. Campers are led in leave no trace camping principles, where often the best memories are made. Outtrips are a challenging and incredibly rewarding part of the camp experience for all ages. Each group learns the value of leadership, cooperation and teamwork while being outdoors and in touch with nature.
