What are Extreme Camps?

Extreme Camps

For campers ages 14-18.  Not for the faint of heart.

If you love camp but want to take it to the next level you should check out our extreme options this summer.

Extreme-Camps-Facebook-Picture_04EXTREME DRAMA – Calling all actors, this camp will begin on July 19th and will get down to the business of putting together a full-length stage production.   If being on stage isn’t necessarily your thing there will be experienced leaders helping to build sets, run lights and put together an all-out, well done production.  There will be a Friday night performance for all the extreme campers and parents are invited to come and take this in.  This promises to be a very fun, memorable and stretching experience.

Extreme-Camps-Facebook-Picture_03EXTREME HORSEMANSHIP – If you are an experienced rider, you may find our standard horse skill a little basic.  This week is designed to challenge you and grow your skills as a rider.  This camp will be taking your riding skills out to the wild west as part of the week will be spent on range, something like the good old days.


Extreme-Camps-Facebook-Picture_01EXTREME MARKSMANSHIP – If you are passionate about riflery or archery, this week will be an adventure for you.  You will be given instruction and opportunities to prove you have what it takes to be on the mark.  Our archery range will be new and improved this summer and we are bringing in special guests to instruct in firearms.  There will also be some friendly games of paintball mixed in to the week to challenge you to work as a team and win the prize.

Extreme-Camps-Facebook-Picture_02EXTREME SURVIVAL – this camp will be a genuine experience in surviving out on the land.  We will begin this week at main camp then canoe and hike to our first camp site, learning basic survival and camping skills along the way.  Bear Grylss would be jealous of our nights out on the wild frontier.   Come spend your days being challenged and your evenings around the fire – it will be an unforgettable week.

While there will be a concentration on one area of expertise at these camps there will be lots of other fun camp activities for each group to enjoy.  Come be an extreme camper this summer and you will make memories that last a lifetime!  You can register today under the summer camps tab.



Q.  Will I only be doing the extreme activity all day long at these camps?

A. The extreme camps are designed to take campers through a more in depth experience with their chosen activity.  Campers can expect to spend up to 6 hours per day on their chosen activity.  There will also be other activities planned within each program to make sure that everyone gets a full camp experience.


Q. I am having trouble deciding between and extreme camp and teen camp, how do I decide?  

A.  We are confident that you will enjoy either option as they both offer a fun, action-packed and meaningful week of camp.  If you have been at camp already and found that you were interested in more of a particular activity and you would like to be stretched, then an extreme option might be for you.  We would be happy to discuss more details with you by email manitou@onehopecanada.ca or by phone (306)-826-5440.


Q. I’m interested in an extreme camp but I’m not sure if I have enough experience or skill in that area to do it?

A. Of our 4 options this year, the only one that requires previous experience is the horsemanship option.  Campers for this option should be comfortable on horse back and have some basic skills and experience.  If you are unsure, give the office a call and we could discuss it further.  For the other three options our staff will be happy to work with you to develop new skill and experience in a safe and well-supervised environment.
