Camp Samac Weekly Themes

At Camp Samac, each week we have a unique theme to keep the program fresh and exciting for our Campers and Staff! Counsellors and Site Coordinators (Arts & Crafts Centre, Nature Centre, & Waterfront Centre) use the respective weekly theme to develop age-appropriate outdoor skills/activities, sports, and crafts for all abilities. Our weekly "Parents' Night" campfire songs/skits presented by the campers create their performances with the theme in mind!
