Welcome to Camp Northway

About Camp Northway


Northway offers a traditional program based on our wilderness setting of swimming, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, arts and crafts and dramatics. Canoe trips are the most special and loved of all activities. Northway has developed an unmatched style, spirit and skill in canoe tripping.

Campers practice their canoeing skills in Northway’s cedar-strip canoes through several stages of proficiency. Our fleet of Optimist Prams, Lasers, and CL11 provide a great choice of sailboats for campers to meet the challenge of Cache Lake’s inlets and cross-winds. The pure, clear water of Cache Lake is a lovely place for girls to learn to improve their swimming style. Northway follows the Royal Lifesaving Society program.

Our Craft House is open all day, so between canoeing, swimming, sailing and kayaking lessons, campers can drop in when the creative spirit moves them. Girls may work independently with their choice of the Craft House supplies, or with the help of the Craft Counsellors. Our Dramatics Counsellors have been producing two full musicals each summer.

A Typical Day at Northway


Every day between Breakfast and Morning Council is a time to tidy up the tent, change into swimsuits for lessons, and pack for trips. Morning lessons, between 10:00am and 12:00 noon, consist of a half hour lesson in each of the waterfront activities: swimming, sailing, canoeing and kayaking. During afternoon lessons between 3:00pm and 5:00pm, campers attend the activity areas of their choice. Arts and Crafts and the Nature Program are also available during this time.

Sundays: Breakfast and Morning Council are ½ hour later. A Sunday morning walk or work-shift takes the place of morning lessons.
