The smiles, the laughter, the proud looks on faces when a camper masters their kayak, the joy of discovering nature and the outdoors, the friendships and bonds built all warm our hearts and make it all worthwhile. It is a pleasure to offer this camp in our community.
Campers have access to the multitude of resources that the Perth Outfitters facilty offers; 5 acres of waterfront, docks, over 100 boats, mini golf course, recreation trail, fields and woods. Campers are out on the water every day learing fundamental kayak, canoe, and SUP skills through theory, on-shore instruction, in-water instruction, games, activities and trips up and down the Tay River. The Tay is a safe, flatwater body of water offering an exciting variety of experiences from paddling under the fountains in the Tay Basin, to paddling through lilly pads and marshland, to locking through the locks at Beveridges locks (the Friday culmination canoe trip).
Campers also have instruction on the mini golf course; putting, ettiquete and strategies, as well as a mini golf tournament. Other activities include outdoor ping-pong, badminton, speedminton, croquet, soccer, capture the flag and other team building games. Each day is spent outside with approximately 3 hours or more on the water. Camp runs rain or shine. Should a thunderstorm roll our way, we weather it in the summer camp shelter or the log cabin with tons of fun activities. On hot days we cool off by paddling under the fountains in the Tay Basin, swimming, jumping off of the paddle boards, and water games.
...and past campers would be quick to point out another favourite activity; the recreation trail with the pedal go-karts and the kick-bikes!
