Camp brought me out of my shell and gave me better communication skills. It has also given me the courage to believe in myself.

Camp has helped me to understand why we have nature and why I have to take care of it.
Noah, Age 8Camp Alexo Camper
Alexo makes me feel really great to know that I am a part of something because I get to be outdoors a lot more than when I'm at home.
Sarah, Age 11Camp Alexo Camper
It makes me feel like I have somewhere to go every year where I can try new things and meet new people. Camp Alexo has had a very positive impact on my life, and I look forward to coming every year
Josh, Age 16Camp Alexo Camper
I’ve made friendships that I’ll treasure for years to come. And I’ll remember my experiences and opportunities that I’ve had. Camp Alexo was a very life changing experience for me. I learned so much about myself. I am a leader and I can and will lead my own way through my life the best and most positive way I can.

I have heard from my daughters for the last 5 years about how awesome Camp Alexo is. I had to take their word for it, I would drop them off to the Collicutt Centre with the counsellors and say my teary goodbyes as they would head off for a week of fun and games. When they would come home, they would talk about fun times, Paul and the good food, magical campfires and out trips...it was all about the good times. It was all about being outside in nature with their friends.
Our daughter has attended Camp Alexo as a camper for the past 10 years and as a CIT for four years. It has become a very important part of her life: she has gained skills, confidence, friends and role models. Much more than just a summer camp, Alexo has become a community to which she feels a strong sense of belonging.
