For boys aged 7 to 16, we offer a variety of session lengths: 12-days, 15-days, 19-days, 26-days, as well as longer 40-day, 43-day and 54-day sessions. We also offer four Introductory Camp 8-day sessions for 7 to 9 year old campers coming to camp for a first time and two 8-day Discovery Camp sessions for 10 to 12 year campers also coming to camp for a first time. For 16 year-olds, we run two 26 day Leader-in Training (LIT) sessions. Each session at Camp Nominingue has its own special characteristics:
8-day session for 7-9 year-olds
This one-week session introduces boys to life at Nominingue, living in tents; learning some new outdoor skills: paddling a canoe, cooking over an open fire and exploring in the woods; and experiencing an overnight canoe trip.
8-day discovery camp for 10-15 year-olds
This one-week session introduces boys to life at Nominingue: living in tents; learning some new outdoor skills; paddling a canoe, cooking over an open fire and exploring in the woods. Campers will experience a week of instruction and some great all-camp games during their stay at camp.
This session includes lifesaving, wilderness first aid and canoe certification; an 8-day canoe trip; leadership training and opportunities; counsellor training; and a solo experience. More information is available in the programs section of this website.
All other sessions are open to 7-15 year-olds
This session takes place during of the second half of each 26-day session. During the 12 days, boys will have the opportunity to participate in one week of instructional activities; be able to choose to go on a 3-day canoe trip (for 10 years and up); and to participate in end of session activities – primal or voyageur games, canoe races, the banquet and a final council ring.
This session takes place at the start of each 26-day session. Campers will have the opportunity to participate in two full weeks of instructional activities and also to go on a 3-day, 5-day or 7-day canoe trip depending on their age and experience.
This session begins at the end of the first week of camp. Campers will have the opportunity to participate in two full weeks of instructional activities and also to go on a 3-day, 5-day or 7-day canoe trip, depending on their age and experience. Campers will also be able to participate in our end of session activities – primal or voyageur games, canoe races, banquet and final council ring.
This session includes all of the opportunities available to 12-day and 15-day campers: three weeks of instructional activities; canoe trips of varying lengths, and all the end of session activities. 15-year old campers will also have the opportunity to go on an 8 or 10 day canoe trip.
40, 43 and 54-day sessions
These sessions include all of the opportunities available to 12, 15 and 26-day participants. These longer sessions ensure that campers have the opportunity to learn all the skills that interest them and to go on a second canoe trip, if that is what they would really like to do. Although some programs are repeated, each 26-day session has its own unique program and special character, and staff are continuously creating new programs every year.
