Dear Mrs. Hall & Wyevale United Church,

Thank you for helping me to go to Camp Simpresca! It was a blast! And a great experience for me. I made lots of friends and had a lot of fun! I hope that I can maybe go next year too! Some day I would like to be a counsellor there! Thanks so much!

Week 3 & 6 Summer 2014

Camp was amazing this summer despite the cool and wet weather. Both campers came home so happy to have gone. They loved the high ropes, the swimming, the boating and the funny songs they sang at meals and while doing all the activities. The counsellors were supper fun and friendly. Thanks for a second great year Camp Simpresca!

Camp Simpresca is the BEST place on earth

I just came back from week one at camp and it was AMAZING I took 2 of my super good friends with me and it was their 1st time and my 5th or 6th and they loved it. Next year I am hoping to go to the L.I.T program that EVERYONE has suggested to me. one of my friends was really homesick at the start but the councilors knew how to handle it and by Wednesday she was having the best time of her life. Camp Simpresca is like my second home I always want to go back, I always have fun, and you always feel welcome and safe. I would definitely recommend going to camp i guarantee you WON'T regret it!!!!

Camp Was Awesome!

Camp of 2013 will be my third year at Camp Simpresca and i highly recommend it to all!!

My little man just came back

My little man just came back from his very first time at Camp. He attended Mini Session 1 and has not stopped talking about how much fun he had and asking to go back. He has told me that he loves it there and next time he wants to go back for 4 weeks instead of 4 days. Finlay (his counselor) was AWESOME he says! Thank you so much for making this experience such a great one for my son. You will have a camper for life with him. He is getting excited to return for Mini Session 2! <3

once was a camper then became counseler

I will never forgot my times as a camper. All the new friends the games and learning how to swim and paddle in a boat. As I grew older I was very luck to become a counseler and pass all those fun things on to other kids I cant wait to send my own kid to camp. This camp is world renouned in my eyes. Couldnt

Maturing at Camp Simpresca

My daughter has been attending Camp Simpresca for 2 years as a camper and last year as an LIT. What a difference from her first time there, when she was crying and didn't want to go to now when she is constantly asking about returning this summer as a CIT. She gained confidence, matured and takes responsibility for her actions. Her out-look has changed at school and she is doing well there. She has even decided that she would like to be a Social Worker in the future. Thank you to all the caring staff at Camp Simpresca!

I went to camp simpresca for one summer 40 years ago and it was the best place to be. The memories have stayed with me. My children went every summer for 8 years then cit and lit training and are now staff there. Keep doing whatever you are doing Camp Simpresca!!

Camp is My Life

Camp has been one of the best things in my life for the last 6 years, I've spent some of the best moments of my later childhood year and I look extremly forward to this summer. Between being a camper and LIT I've learned a lot of incredible skills. At Simpresca I'm not afraid to be myself and let my free spirit out. Looking forward to CIT!
Love,

My Camp Simpresca Life

Going to this camp for my first time really changed my life. My first time coming to this camp was in 2006 when I was ten years old. I was very nervous going because at the time, the only place I felt safe was at home. I only felt safe at home because throughout my life at school, I've been running into a lot of bullies and it was a very tough, hard situation considering to how I didn't know how to stop the situation from continuing, or possibly getting worse. I was worried that I was going to bump into that kind of situation again at Camp Simpresca. However, there was nothing like that at Camp Simpresca because the camp counsellors provide much more than just a fun experience for the campers, and they're one of the best role models you'll ever meet. Going to this camp is all about making new friends and being yourself. I've been going to camp ever since '06 and i still enjoy going to this camp. My memories of this camp last a lifetime and so will your child's.

I, Spencer Caston went to

I, Spencer Caston went to Camp Simpresca last week and had a great time. We started our day with a morning dip, then had a yummy breakfast. We would play games, do crafts, have swim lessons or free swim, every other day we climbed high ropes. We had great meals, I met lots of new friends and had a blast. Night time brought camp fires and songs. I enjoyed myself so much that I am going back for another week in august.

No better place

Simpresca is an amazing place. I was a camper there for about 5 years then L.T.T, C.I.T and then a staff member for 5 summers.
IT has been about 6 summer's since I have last worked there but I think of it every summer. I have many many all great memories from all the summer's I spent at Simpresca. From Arts and Crafts, sports and games, swimming in Georgian Bay, the amazing staff and the great friendshps I made. I also went on some great trips for leadership which I sometimes still brag about when I get the chance. You learn many skills at Simpresca from life skills, to sports, to skills you will use everyday. I would not be the person I am today with Simpresca.
I truley miss the camp fires-where else can you act that silly?

I attended this camp as a child

I remember it was a very positive life changing experience. I came back for several years, and then ended up working at the camp as a Counselor in training.
