In safe environment and with knowledgeable staff kids can participate in numerous activities the camp offers, from canoeing, archery, swimming, waterskiing to dog sledding and rock climbing, there are so many to choose from. And the most important, Camp Ooch is the place to make new friends, try new things, be close to the nature and experience the real camp life. When I was a child I visited a camp almost every year and it was unforgettable experience. I made so many friends there, learnt different skills which helped me in adult life and finally, I was simply happy there, as only a child could be.
