Camp is a special place!

Wild Life Camp is a small day camp in North Simcoe Muskoka.  Owned and operated by recreation, outdoor adventure, and fitness & nutrition professionals, Jillian & Jason.

The camp’s vision is to provide a supportive place for fun, creativity, initiative, contribution, and to draw on the leadership within us all.  All campers are encouraged to impart their leadership throughout the camp community, to use positive communication and problem solving to overcome obstacles, to be respectful of our inclusive environment and the individuals who share in it, and to contribute their own creative thoughts and abilities within our safe camp culture.

Wild Life Camp strives to continually challenge campers with dynamic experiential activities, while always respecting their individual comfort and skill level.  Campers have an opportunity to build friendships and contribute as a special part of this camp community.

WLC Beginnings!

Wild Life Camp opened in Coldwater Ontario in the summer of 2011 as a community focused program to keep kids active and engaged in a safe, positive, and encouraging environment.

Wild Life Academy provides specialty activities and staff training to other camps and has been providing programs throughout Central Ontario since 1998; with programs also for schools, teams, corporate groups, families, and individuals.  Having so much to offer other organizations presented a special opportunity.  The directors of Wild Life Academy decided to share their experience and dynamic programs locally, and so, created Wild Life Camp.

Your support!

Wild Life Camp is a private, non-funded, program that runs mainly on the year-round volunteerism of Jillian and Jason, the directors.  Although it is a private camp, it has been an important goal to maintain camp fees at a rate that is as accessible to as many camper parents as possible while still maintaining a high quality program.  Wild Life Campers get to experience and enjoy these programs right in their own community.

Please support this local program by registering your campers as often as possible, sharing camp information with other parents, or consider contributing a donation to help make camp even better.  Every bit counts and is greatly appreciated by staff and campers.

Testimonials – Thanks for the kind words!

“Every summer my girls look forward to Wild Life Camp.  There are always new fun & exciting activities, but also the favourites they love each year.  Camp is a supportive environment for the girls to play, learn, grow, and be themselves.  I have watched my girls grow to be more confident risk-takers as campers and now my oldest goes to camp in a leadership role.  She loves the interaction and responsibility.”
