Resident Camp is that wonderful "pack up your bags go and away to summer camp" experience. For five days campers will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a safe and nurturing community outside of their home. This memorable experience is one that often results in newfound self-confidence, friends and life long memories.
If you've been to Day Camp or Resident Camp at Sasamat Outdoor Centre before, you already know how much fun it can be. If you haven't, no problem! Our trained staff will ensure that you have a great time from the moment you arrive.
Programs will focus on outdoor knowledge, camp craft skills, adventure and creativity. Our exceptional staff team will provide a very supportive and encouraging environment for residential campers, helping campers to form friendships and take safe risks. Resident Camp builds upon previous Day Camp experience, however it is also a wonderful place for new campers to discover to joy of summer camping.
Residential camp runs from Monday to Friday, and is a residential program where campers arrive 10:00 a.m. Monday morning and depart at 3:15 p.m. Friday afternoon.
Teen Resident Camp
Being a teenager is a unique time of life that is full of energy, new experiences and excitement. Sasamat Outdoor Centre's Teen Resident program is designed to meet the needs of teenagers, providing an an engaging program that operates independently from other programs at Sasamat. The Teen Resident program will have a male and female leader that will lead the co-ed group throughout the week. Living accomodations will be single sex, however day programs will be faicliated as a co-ed group. As some of the oldest campers at Sasamat, the teens will have the opportunity to try unique programs reserved for this age group. Teens will also fulfill the invaluable role of mentoring and role-modeling for younger campers in the Sasamat community.
Sleeping Accommodations & Night Time Supervision
Your child’s group will be placed in one of our cabins, cottages, or yurts, depending on how many campers are in their group.
If your child’s group is in one of the cottages, their leader sleeps in the room right beside theirs. Generally, the younger age groups are placed in the cottages.
If your child’s group is in one of the yurts, their leader and one other staff member will also sleep there.
If your child's group is in one of the cabins, their leader will sleep in a building adjacent to theirs. Generally, only older age groups are placed in the cabins.
To ensure the safety of all our campers at night, our summer staff team also does a routine patrol of the cabin areas every night.
Wednesday and Thursday Out Trip
If your child is in the oldest resident camp group, they get a special treat on Wednesday night: an overnight camping trip to Widgeon Creek! This beautiful, private park is restricted to the public. During their stay at this park, campers can expect beautiful weather, amazing stars, a hike to a waterfall, dinner over the camp-stove, and a night spent with their friends in a tent. The teen resident campers get the same experience on Thursdays.
