Camp is my happy place, somewhere I can relax, and have fun with some of my best friends in the world. It also has helped shape me as a person, teaching me life lessons I use every day.

Summer camp is unique in its ability to build character and confidence. Growing up nothing changed me as much as camp did. Canoe trips taught me more about relationships and leadership than any of the sports I played. Now that I am a counsellor my biggest joy is watching and helping kids develop confidence and make lifelong friends over the course of the summer.

Our three children can’t wait to get back to Ahmek and Wapomeo next summer. Each year they seem to come back from camp full of greater self-confidence and independence. We attribute their love for the camps to the fantastic staff who have always treated our kids like family. We are so fortunate to have had such a great experience so far and we look forward to more in the years ahead.

Parent (Ahmek & Wapomeo)

Both my daughters attend Wapomeo. It has been an incredible experience for me and for them. I have seen how my girls have matured and gained independence in just one summer! They have been going to Wapomeo for many years now – as far as they are concerned it is part of summer – they love it! I think it’s the experience as whole, the beauty of the environment, the strong friendships they make and the time away from home that makes the experience truly unique. I would recommend Wapomeo and TSC to anyone. I really believe they do a great job of nurturing children, understanding that they are all different and bringing out the best in them.

I love camp because you get to spend time with your friends and make new friends. Camps is awesome because there are a lot of activities and the counsellors are really nice. I like going to camp because it’s a really nice place and it’s fun to get outdoors and there are fun activities.

Darcey (Age 8)

In my opinion camp is my second home. It’s where I make new friends and get to see my old camp friends again. When summer break starts it’s my favourite time of the year because I get to go to camp. This year will be my seventh year at camp and it will definitely not be my last!

The Taylor Statten Camps had an immeasurable impact on my family and me. For my father, my brothers and I, being campers and counsellors at Ahmek taught us much about nature; about responsibility; and most importantly, about ourselves.
