Summer Camper Programs
We facilitate a 1-week Overnight Summer Camp Program, hosted at YMCA John Island Camp near Spanish, Ontario. Camp Quality Northern Ontario offers a wide range of programming for different needs and age groups; like swimming, canoeing, nature hikes, kayaking, sailing, fishing, arts & crafts, archery, sports, high and low ropes, LARPing and Camp Sing-Songs.
Our summer program is offered to campers from the following regions:
- Algoma District
City of Greater Sudbury
City of Kawartha Lakes
Parry Sound District
Campers outside these areas may not have access to camp transportation, or may live closer to another Camp Quality camp.
Community Family Programs (Fun Days)
Our Community Family Programs are 1-day camp-style events that happen throughout the year for the entire family. Programs in the past have included: Science Centre Visits, Swimming, Skating, Reunion, and more! Our Community Family Programs are currently being offered in Kirkland Lake, Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury.
All of our programs are 100% free to attend.
