UPDATE: Unfortunately, we have cancelled the Dad’s & Kids Fishing Retreat for 2020 due to the complexities associated with Covid-19.

Click here to learn about our Family Fun Weekends happening in Sept-Oct instead. (The fishing is just as good!)

Come enjoy a last hurrah with your kids before the end of summer and make some fun memories to last throughout the school year!

Friendship
A unique opportunity for Dads to spend time with their kids at the same time as getting to spend time with other Dads and their kids. The relaxed schedule and recreational options provide lots of time for laughter, or good conversation, or crazy fish stories as you reminisce about "the big one"!

Faith
Informal devotional talks help foster discussion between Dads and kids and give food for thought throughout the weekend.

Fun
Fishing is just one of the great recreational options available on this retreat. Whether you are an avid angler or just a beginner, there is a lot of potential to catch fish and improve your skills with helpful instruction. If fishing is not your thing, you can still come and enjoy all the fun recreation that camp has to offer.

The traditional structure of this retreat will not change, however, there will now be full access to the waterfront for swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and watersports behind the powerboat in addition to canoeing.

The fishing is still great, and there are typically very few bugs! Camp provides all the bait, and can provide some fishing equipment upon request.

This Retreat begins on Saturday at lunch and goes until Monday at lunch.

 

Extra Information

Frequently Asked Questions:
  • Q: Do I need a fishing licence?
    • A: Anyone over the age of 18 who is planning on fishing needs to purchase a fishing license. You can buy them at Canadian Tire stores or fishing stores. There are several license options to choose from. There are three day, seven day, or a year’s license. You also have a choice between purchasing a conservation license or a full sport fishing license. A conservation license is cheaper but, your daily limit of fish you can keep is fewer than a full sport license.
  • Q: What do we need to bring?
    • A: You need to bring your own linens, pillows, towels, and toiletries. We provide all your food and make your meals. We will have live bait available.
