Description

Camp is full, please contact info@famfi.ca to be added to the waiting list.

Operating since 1999, 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 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!

Daily Activities Include:

  • Swimming
  • Hiking
  • Sports
  • Talks
  • Skit
  • Mass*
  • Rosary*
  • Campfires
  • Cooking
  • Team building

*While encouraged, the religious activities are optional for campers.
