Camp Awakening

Founded in 1982 and celebrating 40 years in 2022, Camp Awakening is a registered charity offering overnight summer camp programs that give youth with physical disabilities the opportunity to increase independence, make lasting friendships, develop confidence and build new skills.

Camp Awakening partners with established summer camps – Kilcoo Camp for boys in Minden, ON and Camp Oconto for girls north of Kingston, ON – to offer a wide range of land & water activities and a dedicated accessible cabin. Our summer camps create opportunities for youth with physical disabilities to make friends with other campers just like them and accomplish things that they never thought they could before.

Building on nearly 40 years of experience, Camp Awakening counsellors are great role models and mentors who are skilled at adapting activities to meet each campers’ desire for adventure.

The camp office is located in Toronto and is open year-round.
