September Family Camp
August 23 – September 2, 2013
Camp Directors: Hugh Statten, David Jefferies
September Camp was created with the idea of providing former Ahmek and Wapomeo staff members and campers with the opportunity to reunite as adults with families and friends on the shores of Canoe Lake. Our doors are also open to the general public who may be interested in experiencing a short stay in the interior of Algonquin Park. Since 1938, September Camp has been held on the Camp Ahmek site. While a program of activities is arranged, a free and easy atmosphere allows campers to be as active or as idle as they wish.
We welcome single persons, married couples, and family groups with children aged 3 and up. Supervision of children will be the responsibility of the parents. September Campers under the age of 19 must be accompanied by their parents.
The sleeping accommodations consist of rustic cabins and cottages used by the Ahmek boys during the regular camp period. Outside toilet facilities are located throughout the camp with hot showers and flush toilets centrally located. All September Campers supply their own blankets, sheets, pillows, pillowcases, towels, P.F.D., etc. Paddles may be brought for personal use or purchased from our tuck shop, along with an array of camp clothing and memorabilia. A number of Ahmek and Wapomeo summer staff stay for September Camp and assist in the diverse program.
Activities at September Camp include:
- Horseback Riding (from August 27 to September 4 only)
- Arts & Crafts
- High Ropes
- Climbing Wall
- And many more family-oriented activities
