Moms & Kids Camp
One of the longstanding traditions at Camp Scugog is our program for moms and kids. These sessions provide opportunities for mothers and/or other female caretakers and their children to spend time together in a creative and supportive outdoor environment.
During the day, separate programming is offered to children so our mothers and female caregivers are able to enjoy the company of other adults, while their children gain independence in our protected and safe community. New skills and strong communities are fostered at camp to help our moms and kids throughout the winter months. Each mother is accommodated with her children in a cabin shared with another family.
