Great Big Theatre Company

We have been offering our theatre camp programs since 1994; thousands of kids and families from across the GTA and southwest Ontario have participated, and many kids have gone on to shine, some of them on stages, on TV and in films, and many more in their schoolwork and in local community groups and activities, through the skills and confidence our programs have helped them to develop.

GBTC emphasizes basic skills, appropriate to each individual age level, in areas such as voice, movement, working with scripts, clear speech, expressing emotions, and developing character; we also work to encourage participation and develop confidence. We offer a low ratio (between 7:1 and 8:1) of campers to staff, so that each camper gets sufficient individualized attention. In addition, each age group prepares its own segment of the end-of-week performance, so that everyone participates equally, as much as possible.

Camp Presqu'ile

Camp Presqu'ile is a unique summer camp located in South Western Ontario (Location Map) that focuses on the camper's development in "spirit mind and body."

From Presqu'ile's humble beginnings in 1929, its commitment to mentorship has kept our focus on our campers.

Over the past 60 years the Owen Sound Rotary Club has worked hard at developing a summer over night camp for children. In partnership, the Owen Sound Rotary Club and Family YMCA are proud to offer high quality summer camping experience for all children to enjoy. Along with a beautiful, modern site, Camp Presqu'ile offers a wide variety of programs ensuring we have something for everyone. Through interactive programs and a community focus our campers will have fun, develop friendships, and create memories that last forever. Camp is a place where children are free to be kids, where your imagination can take you on many adventures, a place to have the time of your life.

Programs

Our campers have the opportunity to develop or choose their own program by selecting the activity of their choice for each of the 4 program periods a day. Each camper can attend their favorite activities yet still challenge themselves by trying new activities. All activities are designed to teach basic skills with a focus on personal growth and group dynamics through a fun, recreational approach. A well maintained site with modern equipment and a balance of programs (sport to leisure and water to land) ensures that we meet a wide variety of interests. All sports at camp are played under the guidelines that the winner of the game is not always the team that scored the most goals, but the team that had the most fun. All sports are facilitated with an emphases on fair play, teamwork and fun.

Integration Camping

In cooperation with Project Rainbow we are proud to be able to integrate campers with special needs into our traditional and leadership programs. With the one-on-one support buddies, our campers have the freedom they need to learn social and interaction skills with the safety and security of a friend right beside them.

Leadership

Leadership Programs are divided into three levels based on age. Each experience is different in duration and content, building on the previous years program. Through a mixture of interactive games, group initiatives and practical teachable moments, campers are taught life and camp specific leadership skills. The Leaders start their experience off by learning how to build a community. Once they have accomplished working together then they learn how to work with campers and facilitate programs.
