As soon as you drive up to camp on Opening Day, you will see a brand new transformed Field 1. We can’t wait for you to enjoy the multi-level Ropes/Outdoors Obstacle Course. After being harnessed, you will be able to explore the course at a level where you feel comfortable – and challenge yourself to reach new heights!

Farming Expansion

With the success of the farm over the past few summers, we are expanding the program to include additional farmers and chickens. Our staff at the farm will also be instrumental in introducing a composting program in the Dining Hall.

Log Rolling

In case you missed it on the Facebook page, Log Rolling is coming to Louise! Do you think you’ve got what it takes to stay on the log?
