All youth even under age 8 will have the opportunity to try sailing. Camp staff and sailing coaches will offer a bit of sailing or a lot of sailing, depending on camper interest. Please contact Al Will if you have further questions.
Honey Harbour Day Camp is looking for volunteers to help increase the success of our wonderful little summer camp. More hands and ideas would mean keeping our camp alive. Jenny Roy, Camp Director, currently does most of the day to day work but she is looking for help with registration, marketing and anything else to support the camp.

Thank You, from the Honey Harbour Day Camp!
We, the Honey Harbour day camp, would like to take a moment to thank all the wonderful people who help build and support us on so many different levels. The donations, the financial contributions and the extra volunteering have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated! With this type of support we are able to continue our mission of supplying a wonderful day camp for the children in our beautiful Honey Harbour community. Special Thanks goes to the Honey Harbour Church and the Tennis Club for the generous donations.
BOOM Mobile Sailing School
The Honey Harbour Day Camp will be hosting BOOM Mobile Sailing School again for the week of July 10th to the 14th, 2017! There will be no extra cost for our campers due to the extremely generous donations that Al Will has collected. This is a $300 saving per camper thanks to all the donors. There is still room for members to add donations on your HHA membership renewal form. Spaces are limited so get your registration in EARLY! This was a huge success last year.
BOOM Mobile Sailing School will provide us the ability to run fully licensed sailing lessons during the week of July 10th -14th, 2017. They will supply a complete mobile sailing school that will travel to our camp. The mobile team consists of two qualified instructors, Sail Canada’s CANSail 1 & 2 basic sailing levels for students ages 8-14. The mobile units are equipped with eight learn to sail boats, two coach boats, teaching aids and Lifejackets/PFD’s for all participants.

We run an AM & PM camp each day with a maximum of 6 riders per camp session. Camp sessions provide for 2 X 15 minute sets per session, per athlete, X 4 days, totaling 2 hours of instruction & riding. Schedules may be altered due to participation numbers. A minimum number of participants are required to run the camp. If you have questions or would like to customize any of the programs we would love to talk with you.
A Typical Day at Honey Harbour Day Camp
A Typical Day at the Honey Harbour Day Camp is filled with enjoyment and fun! From the moment our campers step onto the dock to the moment they get in their boats to go home, everyday proves to be a different and exciting adventure! Based on our weekly themes, we begin our morning with some introductory games to get everyone warmed up for what lies ahead. We then transition into our daily craft, giving the campers the artistic freedom to express themselves in a judgment free zone. After clean up campers are able to have some organized “awesome time”, where they choose between different activities based on their interest for the day. Once we eat our bagged lunches, our afternoons focus on taking advantage of our beautiful surroundings! Campers have the opportunity to engage in small daily swim lessons, where they acquire the ability to swim more confidently in the lake. Each lesson ends with free swim time on the Lilypad or a trip over to Little Divers to show off their craziest jumps! We finish our day with a camp wide game such as Stones, Capture The Flag or the highly requested Man Hunt. Once we are all exhausted, we head home for the night to get some much needed rest so we can be our silly, unique and creative selves all over again tomorrow!

Introducing Lauren Desroches, our New Lead Counsellor
My name is Lauren Desroches, and I am so excited to be the Honey Harbour Day Camp Coordinator this summer!!!
I was a day camp counsellor four summers ago, and I am really looking forward to coming back. I am currently finishing up my third year at Queen’s University studying Political Science and Spanish. In my spare time I love to play guitar, explore places to hike with my friends and try new kinds of tea.
I can't wait to canoe, swim, make crafts and play games with you all. Looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting lots of new ones too!
The countdown is on! :)
