Age Groups

Campers are grouped by age to encourage interaction with their peers and to facilitate age-appropriate programming. Activities are customized to all ability levels to maximize enjoyment and help participants challenge and grow their individual potential.

Ratios

Camp Bonaventure can accommodate campers with a 1:2 to 1:6 ratio with most groups organized into a 1:4 program leader to camper ratio. We use information collected on participant profiles to assist us in structuring ratios within our groups and in providing additional volunteer support as required. 

If your camper requires a 1:1 support ratio, they are welcome to attend camp with their private support aide. If you are unsure if your camper will require a private support aide, please contact your Community Engagement Coordinator (CEC). If you are unsure who your CEC is please call the main line at 403 269 9133.

My son will be turning 20 this fall and he has attended Camp Bonaventure since he was 6 years old. Summer Camp is always something he looks forward to each year. The weekly planned schedules offer a variety of programming activities. The staff are engaged and supportive of every camper’s unique needs.
