At Belwood Lodge and Camp, we pride ourselves for hosting unique programming that caters to the abilities of the wonderful participants we host. Our programs are designed to adapt to the participants and gives them opportunities for building on skills and social interaction in a safe environment.
Sports & Active Play
Our program offers sports play for all participants. Popular favourites include baseball, basketball, soccer, court sports, dodgeball and tag games.
We also provide opportunities for active engagement with large group games, parachute games, large board games, adaptive team games and low energy activities.
Swimming & Pool
Our most popular program is our pool program. Under lifeguard supervision, participants are given the opportunity to cool down and play together in our newly upgraded pool.
Our fully accessible, heated pool allows up to 30 participants to join in a free play setting, and sometimes with fun and engaging instruction and activities.
Arts & Crafts
One of our most popular programs is crafts. In this program we enjoy engaging social time while completing an activity that gives participants the opportunity to explore and play with colour, paint, paper, glitter, glue, and small wood.
Other activities we offer are banner building and creating decorations for activities around camp like theme days, banquet, and production sets and props.
Music & Theatre
Many of our participants love putting on performances and exploring music and musical play. We offer daily access to our Rec Hall and staged areas for participants to work together to explore their imaginations.
Along with small group play we also offer larger group activities in theatre like play productions, concerts, and dances.
Science & Nature
In an outdoor setting, we have the opportunity to explore nature and the science that makes it up.
Participants are able to learn and explore natural foliage, as well as learn about animals in their natural habitats, gardening, the elements, stars and outer space. Participants are also given the opportunity to explore nature through nature walks in the nearby trails.
Thanks to the generous support of the Royal Bank of Canada's Community and Social Impact Program, we will be able to offer a more enhanced Life Skills Porgram starting in 2021! Thank you, RBC!
