Cabin Assignments:
When campers arrive at Brébeuf they are placed into age-based cabin  groups that become their home for the duration of their stay at camp. We do our best to honour all cabin requests provided that both campers have made the same request and are of approximately the same age and gender. During the day for programming each cabin may be paired with a second cabin to create a ‘cabin group’ of 14 campers with at least 2 counsellors for activities.
Cabin groups are arranged into three sections:

  • Herbivores (campers born between 2009 and 2011)
  • Omnivores (campers born between 2006 and 2008)
  • Carnivores (campers born between 2004 and 2005)
  • Those entering grade 9 in the fall are encouraged to attend our Leadership camp program.

Programming:10606203_735437436493392_3793395346382164222_n
We specifically design all cabin group activity rotations to be age-appropriate for the various sections. There are 9 different program areas that campers will get to experience during their week at camp.
These programs are:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Drama and Music
  • High Ropes
  • Pool
  • Canoeing
  • Faith
  • Adventure Skills
  • Sports
  • Nature/Out trip *depending on age group

During the evenings and on theme days, all of the age groups come together for all camp activities such as Campfire, All Camp Games, Airbands, Social and others.

A lot of people ask us about theme weeks and what the difference between each week is. For example, “Does Sports week mean that my son or daughter will be playing sports all week all the time?”.
In general, on a week by week basis the cabin group activities remain the same. It is the weekly theme however that influences how each program is lead. For example for this summer’s theme “Campers Assemble!” you may end up making a superhero cape in arts and crafts or looking at superheroes of the bible at the faith program.
On top of the theme being a part of the daily program activities there is also an ongoing story that is presented through skits by the staff and a full “theme day” on Wednesday. It is these themes that change up the week and keep it interesting for both campers and staff.

Interest Groups:
In addition to the regular programming at Camp, we also offer twice a day programming called ‘Interest Groups’. During this time camp staff lead non-regularly scheduled programs that campers can sign up to try. Like the name implies these activities are based on camper interests and the skill set of the staff member leading them. Interest groups vary from week to week so that campers can have a variety of experiences over the summer. Some interest groups that are commonly offer are:

  • Rock Climbing10639613_735379609832508_5362020177404845219_n
  • Biking (for the older campers)
  • Archery
  • Bracelet Making
  • Drawing
  • Water basketball
  • Guitar Playing
  • Gaga ball
  • Crayfishing
  • Sand Castle making
  • Chillaxing (rest time)
  • Name that tune

Tuck Shop:
The tuck shop at camp is stocked with both food and drink items as well as camp merchandise. Each day campers will have a chance to visit the tuck shop and choose “tuck” (chocolate bar, candy, chips, drinks) which they will pay for with their tuck card. Tuck cards are available to purchase at drop off on Sunday. The card acts as an account so that individual money does not have to be collected each day. Tuck cards can be purchased in a variety of amounts, typically $5.00 – $25.00.
Tuck shop merchandise is also available for purchase on drop off and pick up days. Some items that we carry include flashlights, notebooks, hats, t-shirts and sweatshirts. These items range in price from camp sunglasses $5.00 to camp sweatshirts $30.00. 

Preparing for Camp:
Once we have confirmed your camper’s registration please make sure that you complete and return both the 2018 Overnight Camp Profile Form and 2018 Overnight Camp Medical Form. If you applied online these forms are required to be completed at the time you submit the application. 

Prior to camp you will also receive a package titled Preparing for Overnight Camp that will include a packing list, details about camp policies and directions to camp.
