Summer camps

 

general
info 2022

We are very excited for this upcoming summer and to get out in our backyard adventuring with you! Below we have two different options for our summer programs. 

The first option, “Bike Camps”, we are continuing our new spin on bike camps from last year.  Come with your camper to Frontier Lodge for the whole week. During the week, your camper will experience their own adventures during the day and in the evenings you will experience camp activities together as a family. One full day of adventure (for family members not in bike camp) is included in the price. You will be able to sign up for your own adventure of rafting, biking, tyrolean, etc. 

The second option, “Overnight Camps” is our traditional camp experience. Drop your kids off for a week full of adventure, friendship, and fun. Pick them up at the end of the week and listen to all of their amazing stories about camp.

If you are interested in coming, email bookings@frontierlodge.ca or click the orange REGISTER button in the top-right corner and see the event-specific registration for Adventure School.
