Courage. Connection. Competence. Confidence.
Founded in 1928, Camp Ak-O-Mak is the world’s first swimming and sports camp for girls. Located 300 km north of Toronto on beautiful Ahmic Lake in the Parry Sound region, we offer girls ages 7 – 16 competitive and instructional programs in swimming; open water swimming; triathlon and sprint canoe/kayak racing; running; biking; and other land sports. Our campers come from Canada, the US and other countries from all over the world and opt in!
We pride our self in offering an authentic, rustic, Canadian summer camp experience that is literally “unplugged” (no cell phones, no laptops). Our campers train in a beautiful, wilderness setting and live in wooden cabins without electricity. We assign 8-12 girls of the same age to a cabin along with two or three counsellors. We offer a rustic experience to help campers focus on and enhance their appreciation for both the beauty around them and their new-found friends. This camp is about participation and we celebrate, cheer for, and encourage our campers.
