Triathlon is a pillar sport at Camp Ak-O-Mak and is a favorite event among campers and staff alike.
For decades, Ak-O-Makkers have participated in a Swim-Paddle-Run against the boys’ camp, Chikopi.
Today our expert coaches (themselves National and World class competitors) teach new campers the fundamentals of triathlon and train experienced triathletes for improved performance. Triathlon is a sport for ALL ages. Race distances are truncated according to age, so even our youngest triathletes (7 & 8 year olds) can experience the thrill of competition. Campers in each session will feel confident enough to try a tri! Ak-O-Mak is the only summer camp and the largest team that attends triathlons held in North Bay, Barrie and Parry Sound.
