THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS AN ORDINARY DAY
Solelim's incredible programming is what our campers love best about us.
Tent living is a defining feature of the Solelim experience. Each tent can accommodate up to six campers: most tents will have a mix of Rookies and Posts. Every tent is assigned one or two staff as “tent parents;” and while they do not live in the tent with the campers, tent parents are responsible for checking in with their campers daily and for organizing special tent time activities throughout the summer. Made with a concrete base and a wood frame, our tents are sturdy and comfortable. All of our canvas tents are equipped with beds, electricity, windows, and a rain fly, making them a cozy summer home.
WHY OUR CAMPERS LOVE LIVING IN TENTS
Living in smaller groups and within different age groups breaks down social cliques and creates a greater sense of community
No counsellors in the tent promotes independence and responsibility
Tent living brings them closer to nature – nothing compares to falling asleep to rain beating on the canvas, or waking up to the smell of fresh dew and birch trees!
MADE FROM THE BEST STAFF ON EARTH
Solelim staff put all of their passion and energy into ensuring that campers get the most out of their summer. Almost all of our staff were campers here themselves and most staff stay at camp for four to five years. They return summer after summer to help our campers grow to become strong and confident: to be their role models and to give guidance when needed.
Our staff are trained to handle challenging situations when they arise. They spend all year designing creative and fun programs that help our campers grow, learn about themselves and one another.
