Try New Things, Learn New Skills, Meet New Friends
"The exploritory and block activities are really fun because I get to do things I have never done before"
Hochelaga Camper, Summer 2018
The archery range offers campers the opportunity to learn a new skill and hone their focus, attention to detail, and strength through target practice with a bow and arrows. All staff leaders who teach Archery participate in specific training centered on safety as our top priority.
From Point Swim to free swim, Camp Hochelaga offers endless opportunities to enjoy the water. Our lifeguards are all American Red Cross certified and participate in regular training with our Waterfront Director.
Camp Hochelaga also offers swimming support and instruction for campers who are less comfortable in the water. Sign up for swimming support when you register for camp online this summer! Swimming Support takes place during one of three daily block activities.
Camp Hochelaga's Arts & Crafts studio offers everything from painting to ceramics, and paper mache to tie dye. Our Arts & Crafts Director always has fun, engaging activities planned. Campers are also welcome to use the space for independent projects if they prefer.
Singing, dance, choreography, musicals, play production, set design, costume design, improve, theater games. The possibilities are endless and imaginations fly free in camp's performing arts programs
Build shelters, cook over the camp fire, track wildlife, study invasive species, go geocaching, learn to navigate with a map and compass, go hiking, and explore all that camp's 30 acres of nature has to offer
100+ summers of traditions & friendships live at the core of the Hochelaga Spirit
On the final evening of every camp session everyone in camp gathers together for Candlelight Ceremony. Campers and staff alike reflect on their time at camp together, share the parts that will stay with them throughout the year, and appreciate the many amazing friends they have made.
"Every year when I go to camp I can see friends that I wouldn't be able to see any other time. Camp to me is like a second home because I know that I am safe and people care. Also at camp I don't have to dress to impress, I can wear whatever and not be judged. I'm constantly having fun and all of the counselors are super amazing and fun!"
