Laurentian University’s Voyageurs summer youth camps, operated by the Campus Recreation team, offer unique child care services that promote the development of youth through a variety of activities.

Voyageurs summer camps are now open for registration. The camps run weekly from July 2 to August 30 for kids aged four to 12 years old. 

Every summer, Voyageurs summer camps welcome hundreds of Greater Sudbury youth to Laurentian University’s campus to learn new skills, make new friends and have tons of fun. 

Three themes will guide the games and free-play activities this year — Carnival, Colour Wars, and Amazing Race. Campers will develop leadership skills, communication skills, and confidence as they play on the campus sports facilities, including four full sized gymnasiums, squash courts, a beach volleyball court, soccer fields, tennis courts and the Tango Tower

The Tango Tower is a challenge course with a 50-foot tower, low-rope activities, 13 different climbing routes, and a giant swing. With encouragement from team mates, and guidance from counsellors, campers are encouraged to choose the level of challenge that’s right for them. 

Outdoor adventure activities include canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, hiking, and wilderness survival training (building a shelter, starting a campfire, tying knots, etc).

Indoor and outdoor sports, including floor hockey, basketball, soccer, ultimate frisbee, badminton, volleyball, and squash. 

Camp counsellors are Laurentian students, with certification in several skilled activities. 

“The counsellors are students from all different programs like education, arts, business, and sciences,” says Jean Benoit, campus recreation co-ordinator. “They love what this campus has to offer and are dedicated to making the Voyageur Camp a fun, unique, and safe experience for every camper. They are patient, hard-working, and great role models.”

To add to the fun, every camper is given a camp T-shirt, and Fridays are always a pizza day. Drop off is as early as 8 am and pick up is as late as 5 pm. Camp activities run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost per week is $260.
