Wilderness Adventure Camp


National Kids Camps at Camp Fortune (Mountain Bike Kids, Survivor, Amazing Race, Wilderness Adventure) COVID-19 NOTICE June 10, 2020

On Monday we were very pleased to hear from the Ontario and Quebec governments that Summer Day Camps for 2020 are continuing to run, improvement is occurring, and we’re now moving into phase 2 starting Friday.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our campers, parents, and staff. After much counsel and speaking with public health officials, we have decided at this time, that it would be too risky and unsafe to use busing services to and from Camp Fortune. For this summer, parents/guardians will need to organize carpooling and/or drive their children to and from Camp Fortune.

New for this summer, all NKC camps at Camp Fortune will run out of the larger, newer, main chalet. All camps will continue to run from 9 AM to 4 PM daily with the addition of pre-and post care from 8-9 AM and 4-5:30 PM. If your child is attending the mountain bike camp, please bring their bike on Monday morning and bring it back Friday afternoon. We will have secure storage for the bikes throughout the week at Camp Fortune.

If transportation to and from Camp Fortune is an issue, you can transfer to our Mountain Bike Kids camp held at All Saints High School, Kanata that is running for 3 weeks: July 6-10, July 27-31, and August 10-14 OR

transfer into one of our tennis camps that will be run throughout the summer held at either Barrhaven Tennis Club or Britannia Yacht Club.

If you feel more comfortable moving your camp to later in the summer or for next year, we will be happy to provide you with credit to be used at a later date at any of our National Kids Camps/National Tennis School locations (except Tennis Centre West Ottawa). Your camp credit is transferable to any person.

Attached is the link to our Covid-19 procedures and plan that we have developed in order to keep our campers, parents and staff healthy.

As this situation is fluid, we ask for your patience and for you to keep up to date through the sources provided.

All the best,

Geoff Pearce President National Kids Camps

*NEW FOR 2020- We are adding 2 more weeks! it was a huge success last year...* Wilderness Adventure Camp
(Transportation included from Kanata, Nepean, Ottawa)

Our 5-day camp will pair campers with primitive life skills and outrageous summer fun!
The intention of this camp is to teach our next generation the basic life skills needed to survive,
not only in the office, but if they were left alone in the forest, island, or any place they may need to survive - without their phone!

Skills taught/practiced include shelter and fire building,
wilderness medicine, teamwork, traps, orienteering, fishing and food preparation, and primitive pottery.
While other naturalist and survival camps give kids exposure to many of the concepts/skills above, few of them have the practical knowledge/familiarity to provide significant hands on experimentation.

Your kids will also be:

• More Paddle boarding

• Kayaking
• Fishing

• Canoeing

• Archery

• Swimming-Meech Lake

• Snorkeling with the new- One Piece full face masks.

• Tag Archery

• Fly-Tying

• Orienteering

• Outdoor Skills

• First Aid

• Rescue Techniques

• Hiking

• Fire Building Skills

• Aerial Park

• Wildlife and nature education

• Positive personal goal setting

• Team building games

Gain valuable skills that could forever change their lives and give them the tools necessary
to correctly process anything that comes at them in life.
Campers have a blast while learning and growing.
