A camp for all ages…
From 4 to 15, Camp Arrowhead has a program for everyone. Chickadees (4 – 5 year olds), Sparrows (campers entering Grades 1 – 4) Hawks (campers entering Grades 5 – 8) and CITs (campers entering Grades 9 and 10) come together each summer to sing, play, and experience all that the camp has to offer.
Early Years at Arrowhead
CHICKADEE UNDER 4
According to the Ontario Child Care and Early Years Act, every camp can offer a limited number of full day spaces for campers who are under the age of 4. At Arrowhead, our Chickadee Under 4 campers experience all that camp has to offer under the careful supervision of our Camp Staff.
Please note, according to the Early Years Act, space in this program is restricted to a maximum of 5 campers per week. Spots will be allocated according to registration date. Priority during the Early Bird Registration period will be given to Campers born in 2018 who are not yet 4 by the time camp begins. After December 20, 2021, available spots will open up to children born in 2019 who have turned 3 by the start of their first week in the program.

Leadership Development at Arrowhead
This is a special program for campers who have completed Grades 8 or 9. The goal of this program is to develop our future staff members into leadership roles at Arrowhead, while balancing the fun and play of regular camp experience. Each session they are registered, CITs will participate in two-week placements with younger cabin groups. They will also be involved in training sessions with other CITs that will allow them to learn leadership, responsibility, and how to supervise even our youngest campers. CITs will also have the opportunity to participate in their own camp activities and other physically distanced team building exercises each day*. CITs who attend a minimum of two sessions, who wish to work towards their Bronze Cross/Bronze Medallion certifications will be given daily opportunities to do so under the instruction of our qualified swim instructors.
This two-week program is a recommended pre-requisite for Junior Staff positions at Camp Arrowhead.
Space in this program is very limited and interested CITs will need to successfully complete an application process which will include a short written application. We want all of our 2022 CITs to be successful this summer and understand the program that they will be participating in as it is different from the regular camper experience. Parents can register their children for our CIT program using the Camp Arrowhead Camper online-registration system. Once doing so, they will be placed on a waitlist and be contacted with information on further steps. If you have any questions about this great opportunity for our oldest campers, please email our Assistant Director Alex Schwartzberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
