SHOW­CASE YOUR TAL­ENT

Dur­ing Labour Day week, Cana­dian Ad­ven­ture Camp in On­tario turns over its gi­ant wa­ter­slides and Tarzan swings to adult campers. There’s even a tal­ent show to cap off the week— so start prac­tis­ing your “Kum­baya” mash-up now.

TRY A DIG­I­TAL DETOX

Each Au­gust, North Carolina’s Camp Grounded hosts a throw­back camp-out for young pro­fes­sion­als—the four-day re­treat comes com­plete with a no-dig­i­tal-de­vice pol­icy. Who needs so­cial me­dia when you can walk on stilts?

PAD­DLE HARD

Fire­side Ad­ven­tures camp hosts a 10-day ca­noe ad­ven­ture in the Yukon for wilder­ness-lov­ing adults each Au­gust. Pad­dle 400 kilo­me­tres up the Yukon River and spend your nights snack­ing on s’mores un­der the glow of the aurora bo­re­alis.

FIND BLISS

Pop­u­lar with Gen X and Gen Y, New York’s Soul Camp of­fers five Au­gust days filled with colour wars, dance classes and, of course, yoga. It starts with a fear-burn­ing cer­e­mony, where you can watch your trou­bles go up in the smoke of a bon­fire.

ROCK OUT

For a three-day week­end in Septem­ber, Camp Yoga has crafted two sleep­over-meets-fit­ness camps in Can­more, Alta., and Parry Sound, Ont., re­spec­tively. Roll out of your bunk bed each morn­ing for rock climb­ing, rope cour­ses and lots of yoga.

THROW A PARTY

For three nights in Septem­ber, Camp No Coun­selors lets you check in to a bunkhouse in L.A. or Michi­gan. Spend your days zip lin­ing and your nights at themed cos­tume par­ties com­plete with live mu­sic (and an open bar).
