Do you have a young daughter and you want her to start developing leadership skills and a love for the outdoors, but you’re not sure how to make that happen? Camp Ak-O-Mak is the perfect outdoor destination for young girls.
As an all-girls sports camp located in Ontario, Camp Ak-O-Mak is the place to spend the summer. On a beautiful lakeside setting 300 km north of Toronto, we’re highly regarded for our sports program designed specifically for girls ages 7-16.
Gaining Self-Reliance Through Camp Sports
Many of the activities at Camp Ak-O-Mak focus on developing independence and self-reliance. Swimming is one of our core activities at camp. Nothing beats the delight of swim practice in the lake under the heat of the summer sun, surrounded by a stunning northern Ontario landscape. It is a chance for girls to set free from their usual daily routine and develop personal goals, leadership and freedom.
Another popular camp activity is biking. It’s a sport that develops discipline while also being a fantastic workout. It is great if you want to focus on yourself and clear your mind. You’re not relying on anyone else and this shows growing independence.
Leadership and Development Through Camp Activities
By trying different kinds of sports, girls learn to build trust within themselves. Girls will be able to build self-confidence, and independence because once they get over the fear of trying something new they will want to expand their comfort zone even more. This is something that isn’t taught, but learned. The whole idea of going to camp on your own and getting away from your family can be scary, but at the same time it builds independence. Parents will be impressed and take pride in this type of development and personal growth for their daughter.
It is good practice for the future and learning to grow up into one’s unique self. Starting this type of independence at a young age is definitely important as it is crucial for proper growth. Putting young girls in activities will allow them to discover themselves and keep them busy and off the couch.
If you have an athletic daughter, then Camp Ak-O-Mak is the perfect place for her to spend her summer. We’re proud to have a setting that provides a unique experience where one can escape from technology. Best of all, Camp Ak-O-Mak offers an experience to assist campers with expanding and immersing their desire for nature and the outdoor world, while developing confidence, independence and leadership skills and having an absolute blast while doing so.
