Camp Aim

 

Operating since 1999 The Knight’s Quest was started by a group of fathers wanting to give their sons a camping experience aimed at encouraging character development for boys aged 9-14.

 

Designed with a flavour of military discipline and the spirit of masculine adventure, campers are invited to enjoy the great outdoors by playing sports and taking part in traditional camping activities.

 

Knight’s Quest doesn’t promise clean clothes at the end of the week, but guarantees enough camaraderie, stories and memories to last until the next year!

* All water sports and swimming take place at Port Huron Provincial Park beach, away from the main group of bathers.  At all times each person must wear a real life-jacket.

 

* We limit participation to 64 boys, along with twelve counsellors and fifteen fathers. The boys will be organized into four groups.  All fathers are welcome.

LEADERSHIP

Counsellors aged 15 and over develop their leadership skills as they lead their teams through a week of activities and in managing their camping space, cooking, and enjoying meals together. 

 

Embedded throughout the week’s activities, the concept of “servant leadership” is emphasized and taught, and counsellors and leaders are challenged to mentor their campers with that concept in mind.
