Edge of Walton Camp Dates:

Grand Sparks ($200.00)
July 4th – July 7th (4 days)
9:00am – 1:00pm
Ages: 5+

Grand Sparks is a one-week activity day camp that will challenge grandparents to interactive outdoor play and recreation with their grandchildren (ages five and up). The ultimate goal of Grand Sparks is two-fold: 1) motivate older adults to become more active and find a recreational activity that becomes a shared, routine, interactive pastime with youth, and 2) educate and encourage children to make healthy nutritional choices by getting them involved in meal preparation.

Small local businesses and individuals will lead sessions in adventure hiking, canoeing, biking, yoga, and much more. This program will also include nutrition workshops daily, where lunch is prepared together after a morning of physical activity.

You don’t have to officially be a senior, or a grandparent, to participate. You only need to be an older adult bringing a youth partner and lots of sunscreen. Don’t worry if you feel you are “out of shape!” We can modify the activities to suit the physical abilities of the participants. The cost is $200 per participant.

Little Bugs ($210.00)
Tuesday, July 18th – Thursday, July 20th (3 days)
Ages 4-7
9am – 4pm

Our Little Bugs Camp features a full line-up of exciting activities, including high ropes climbing, nature exploration, bike riding, and outdoor fun! Campers will make new friends, learn exciting skills, and spend plenty of time exploring the great outdoors.

Aside from a bicycle and helmet, we will provide all the necessary equipment to participate in the camp. All bicycles are welcome, including balance bikes. Healthy snacks & refillable water stations will be provided.

Outdoor Sports Camp ($425.00)
July 10th – July 14th (5 days)
9am – 4pm
Ages 7-13

Campers can expect a week of exciting sporting activities, canoeing/kayaking, BMX, motocross, swimming, and climbing our 50ft high ropes course!

We help our campers explore the limits of their comfort zones through challenging and exciting new movement opportunities. Campers will soak in the benefits of outdoor exploration, all while developing meaningful friendships along the way. Walton’s Outdoor Sports Camp is sure to be the best week of summer. Availability is limited – register today!

Team building getaways in rural Ontario

Want to foster more interpersonal growth among your professional team members? Need a chance for your employees or co-workers to get to know each other in a more relaxed setting than the office? Team building retreats are a great way to help your staff establish stronger relationships and work together on something challenging and fun that won’t be reflected on their performance assessment.

We know how valuable those opportunities to bond with co-workers outside of the office are, so we’ve gathered some team-building activities from around Ontario that we think you should try with your staff. There’s something for everyone, from cooking to painting, from horseback riding to kayaking, from spa retreats to unplugged lodges.

1. EDGE OF WALTON CHALLENGE COURSE, Walton (formerly Above the Falls Challenge Course)

Climb and balance your way to the top of a forty-foot tower, strengthen the trust levels of your team with low course activities, or take up the challenge of a mountain biking course. EWCC is no ordinary corporate retreat – it is outdoors in a natural environment, physically, emotionally and mentally challenging. Your success is based on personal growth. Improve group decision-making, develop confidence and connect with fellow workers — all without the usual distractions. Rob and the EWCC team will work with you to develop a program that really focuses on the areas your team needs to grow in.
