Greetings Campers! We are thrilled to welcome active Scouts Canada members, active Scouts Canada volunteers, Scouts Canada staff, and their families to Opemikon this summer for some good ol' fashioned summer camp fun, with a twist. Family Adventure Camp has been designed to provide a genuine, all-access Scouts Canada camping and programming experience for youth AND adults in a safe and COVID-19 mindful environment. Guests have access to a variety of overnight accommodations, all of Camp's natural beauty to explore, waterfront equipment to enjoy, a daily list of instructor-led program stations to choose from and self-directed program materials to utilize.

Guests may also visit Opemikon with an All Access Day Pass, which does not include overnight accommodation or evening/night time programming. 

 

Before you book we'd like to go over some of your options, what to expect, and how to proceed.

  • Youth under 18 must be accompanied by an adult from their family bubble at all times. This includes program stations, trails, beach, picnic areas, during play and all other activities 
  • In order to track capacity, sign-up systems are in place for programming stations and for the use of popular camp areas such as the beach. Sign-up for each activity and area opens at 8:30AM daily at the camp office. Participants and visitors must sign-up in advance of participation or use
  • Masks are required during all group programming, at the camp office, in public bathrooms, at water stations, and in any other area or circumstance where close contacts (even in passing) may occur
  • Pets are not permitted
  • Alcohol, cannabis, and all other drugs are strictly prohibited
  • Smoking is not permitted on-site

 

NOTE: Eastern Ontario is home to an active black bear population. Proper food storage and garbage disposal is essential for the safety and well-being of all Opemikon visitors (the human kind AND the animal kind). Guests who book at a walk-in or paddle-in site must to come prepared to hang their food and waste in a tree using a bear bag or other safe storage container, or to return their food and waste each day to their vehicle and/or to the designated garbage containers at the main camp.  

Guests at all cabins and tent sites will be required to properly store and dispose of food and waste. This information will be reviewed and discussed upon check-in. In the meantime, please see this link to ontario.ca for more information on how to be bear aware.
