Camp Details:

The Ottawa River Canoe Club, in collaboration with Bloom Therapeutic Recreation & Fitness is excited to announce that we will once again be offering a unique inclusive camp option for individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities! 

Developed by a team of Registered Recreation Therapists and supported by future Therapeutic Recreation graduates from Algonquin College, our camp programs have been developed with a person-centered approach and strengths-based care in mind. Our goal is to nurture and enhance each campers’ love for nature and watersports, through stimulating outdoor experiences! 

While spending their time outdoors and on the water, our campers will experience many exciting adventures that will help build self-esteem and improve their social skills while also developing new motor skills, engaging in regular physical activity and experiencing the many benefits on their mental health that nature provides.

Recreational and sprint canoes and kayaks are used to introduce our campers to the sport of CanoeKayak. The daily on-water activities will include a safety orientation, technical instruction, games, as well as individualized adaptations and support on the water. While all abilities are welcome, campers must be comfortable on the water.

One-on-One Support

We maintain a staff ratio of 1:3; however, if you believe that your camper will need one-on-one support the ORCC can accommodate that. Simply register as you would any other camper and ensure you state that additional support will be required when filling out the intake form. Upon review of the registration form, additional staff will be assigned and you will subsequently be billed for the additional staff. Participants are also welcome to provide their own support worker if that is deemed the most appropriate course of action.

With our specialized intake method, our team will provide guidance and ensure that all health considerations, unique characteristics, strengths, interests, and personal goals are shared and integrated in the camper’s individual recreation plan. While we will provide the necessary level of support for each individual, we do require all of our our campers to be comfortable with their own personal care needs, and otherwise providing their own personal support companion during camp hours if necessary.
