Getting Back to Ak-O-Mak

Posted on

Hey, Camp Folks!

When you work with all the great summer camps that we do here at Everything Summer Camp, it’s hard not to sing their praises. But we like singing anyhow, so we do it pretty often. We work with more than 270 camps and today, we’re shining our summer camp spotlight to southern Canadian border in Ontario, just north of Toronto.

Situated on the shores of Ahmic Lake, Ak-O-Mak girls are treated to the camp’s private waterfront and 400 acres of land, including open fields, woodland trails, forest, and wetlands. Founded in 1928, Camp Ak-O-Mak was the world’s first swimming and sports camp for girls. 

Girls have a lot of fun with jam-packed days at Camp Ak-O-Mak, filled with awesome summer activities. Have fun at their waterfront which offers a diving tower, beach games, sailing, and more! And, back on dry land, Camp Ak-O-Mak offers huge grass playing fields where you can find their baseball diamond, soccer pitch, archery range, beach volleyball courts, tennis courts, along with a bunch of mountain bikes and road bikes.

The beautiful campus boasts roughly one mile of private shoreline overlooking the pristine Ahmic Lake. And they have rustic, but well-maintained buildings where their campers sit down to eat, visit the infirmary, bring clothes to the laundry service, or get warm by the large stone fireplace.

Campers at Camp Ak-O-Mak live in wooden cabins with no electricity. An unplugged, rustic living experience gives the girls an unmatched level of focus and develops their appreciation for the natural world around them as well as the new friends they’ve made. 8 to 12 girls of the same age are assigned to a cabin along with two or three counsellors.

If Ak-O-Mak sounds like it may be the camp for you, check it out further by visiting their website—just click right here. And, as always, thanks for reading!
