CAMP PROGRAM INFO:
BACKGROUND: Camp Kodiak is an integrated, non-competitive, overnight summer camp serving children & teens with and without LD, ADHD, high-functioning ASD. Campers come from all over North America and from abroad. The primary objectives of Camp Kodiak are to build confidence and self-esteem, to teach social skills, to foster independence and to provide an exciting and satisfying camp experience. This is achieved by providing a safe and nurturing environment, a mature, professional staff, a very low camper-to-staff ratio and a program that is designed to ensure success. Staff never miss the opportunity to recognize and celebrate these successes.

PROGRAM: Camp Kodiak programs for success! All sports and activities are taught in an organized, set-by-step fashion to ensure success. Cooperation rather that competition is emphasized. There are over 50 sports, crafts, cultural and educational activities so that every camper can find several activities at which they can excel.

Core Program: Many campers are hesitant to take on new challenges. In order to ensure that they get the most out of their camp experience Kodiak has developed a core program of 14 activities to which all cabin groups are scheduled. They include an instructional swimming program, water-skiing, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, team sports, tennis, archery, arts & crafts, drama, team-building initiatives, high ropes and rock climbing. Campers are encouraged to participate in these activities with their cabin group.

Electives: There are several times each day when campers are able to choose their own activities and pursue personal interests independent of their cabin-mates. The choices include instruction in activities of their choosing and activities that are strictly recreational.

Academics: Monday to Friday, right after breakfast, everyone in camp has an hour of academic instruction.

There are two components to the academic program, Option 1 and Option 2. Campers in Option 1 receive academic tutoring. Campers in Option 2 receive instruction in an educational activity such as music, drama, dance, pottery, photography, chess, STEM activities, first aid, nature studies, etc.

STAFF: An important reason for the success of our program is our staff. Approximately one half of our counselors are trained, certified professionals from the fields of education, psychology, social work and recreation. Every cabin has at least three counselors and at least one of them is a trained professional. The remaining staff are university students, most of whom are working towards a career in one of the helping professions. The camper-to-staff ratio is 2-to-1. All of our staff undergo a rigorous training period before the campers arrive and all new counselors go through a police background check.

MEDICAL CARE: We have a doctor and three nurses on staff. They live on-site, administer all medication and are available 24 hours a day in case of emergency. The hospital in Parry Sound is 20 minutes away.

TRANSPORTATION: Transportation to camp is by highway coach from Toronto. Camp personnel are available to meet campers at Toronto International Airport and to ensure they get their flights home at the end of camp. There is no extra charge for this service.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Camp Kodiak LITs range in age from 16 to 18. Besides the regular camp activities, they attend workshops on learning differences, team building, leadership skills and teaching methods. Then, under the supervision of our staff, they have the opportunity to assist counselors with some of our younger campers. They also help organize and implement some of our evening and theme day activities. LITs who are looking for more vocational experiences act as waiters & waitresses for our younger campers. They also help out with some of our office routines and help run our camp store ("tuck shop").
