Camp Opemikon


This summer, Provincial COVID-19 related restrictions on supervised overnight camps for youth have required us to re-imagine how Camp Opemikon may operate in 2021. We know families and youth are eager to get outdoors and to get back to camp! It is with the Scouting & Opemikon community in mind and with a steady commitment to safety for all, that we are excited to announce Opemikon Family Adventure Camp 2021!

Family Adventure Camp has been designed as an all-inclusive camping and programming experience for Scouting households. Guests may choose from a variety of overnight accommodations and will have access to all of Opemikon's natural amenities along with daily program events facilitated by our dedicated and enthusiastic camp staff!


About Camp Opemikon

Since 1938, Camp Opemikon has served the camping needs of more than half a million members of the Scouting family.  The camp is owned and operated by Scouts Canada, Voyageur Council, and is one of the finest residential Scout camps in Canada.  Campers from other parts of Canada and around the world are welcome.

This camp is located on the southern tip of the Canadian Shield on Christie Lake, 100 km southwest of Ottawa.  This idyllic camp on more than 200 acres of rugged terrain, nestled among three pristine lakes, provides the perfect Scouting adventure away from busy roads and crowded cities.  A large, modern kitchen and dining hall provides campers with wholesome, nutritious meals in a pleasant atmosphere. 

During Summer Camp, our Health Care Centre provides a ward, clinical and private care under the constant supervision of qualified health care providers.  In the off-season (September to June), Camp Opemikon offers a variety of accommodations for campers including heated lodges, Cub cabins, and wooded tenting areas.  Summer facilities such as the Health Centre are converted to rentable bunkhouses.  A catered meal plan is available and can be arranged at the time of booking. 

Camp Opemikon is the only Scout camp in Ontario that has maintained a membership and accreditation in the Ontario Camping Association, and is also a member of the Canadian Camping Association.  Membership in these associations requires strict adherence to standards and guidelines in areas concerning health and safety, facilities and equipment, leadership and staff, programs, wilderness travel, transportation and administration.
