Basketball is a great group activity that everyone can enjoy. With six nets and benches to sit and watch, the basketball court has enough space for playing full games, several small games, or to simply enjoy spectating.
Beach volleyball overlooking beautiful views of the Waterfront. Players are able to serve, volley and bump the ball with a lake breeze to accompany them.
Bicycle through forest trails and explore new sights and sounds as part of our biking program. Safety and fun are combined to make this activity a hit among participants both young and old. A bike ride test is required before embarking on a biking adventure.
Campfire is a most honoured tradition at Camp Scugog. Participants and staff gather around our campfire to enjoy an evening of songs and skits. Beginning with energetic action songs, where campfire goers are free to let loose, and close with our well-known guitar songs as the sun sets over the lake.
Canoeing is great for exploring Lake Scugog. Whether paddling through the swamp and discovering new animals and plants, playing canoe games, or learning new skills, our participants are certain to enjoy this great Canadian tradition.
