We offer many custom programs to clients of all ages based on program needs.
RKY Camp strives to provide our participants with an opportunity to challenge themselves in a safe, inclusive, outdoor environment and help them to get in touch with themselves, nature, and each other.
You can book a day trip with all RKY programming or a joint leadership group with RKY running only a portion of the programs.
Although we do our best to fit everyone in, please be aware that our busiest months of June and September do fill up quite quickly; please book early to avoid disappointment!
We are located on Eagle Lake, just 45 minutes North of Kingston.
For our overnight programs in the Spring and Fall seasons we have 15 cabins that sleep up to 14 people each; all are available for overnight group rentals.
In the winter months (January- March) we can sleep up to 90 people in heated accommodations.
During our Outdoor Centre seasons, our program areas allow us to have up to 140 participants fully engaged and involved in a variety of programs at one time.
Our brand new dining hall, The Homestead, and our recently renovated Outdoor Centre provide ample indoor space to meet and stay warm when not enjoying the outdoor amenities.

Let us cater to you
We have years of experience in tailoring our programs to your class curriculum, creating an amazing outing at RKY. Let us plan an educational outing that your students will cherish forever.
RKY Camp staff always appreciate the support and hard work provided by group leaders, teachers and parent volunteers. Without their dedication, we could not provide the same level of programs.
For school programs, an ideal ratio is one chaperone for every 10 participants (day group) or one chaperone for every cabin if chaperones are staying in cabins with students. This allows at least one adult for every rotation group, plus 1-2 extra chaperones floating around to help out where needed.
RKY Camp's Spring and Fall Family Camps are fully programmed by camp staff and provide an exciting opportunity to enjoy time at Eagle Lake with the family.
These weekends provide a great way to have the RKY Camp experience together and enjoy some adult time as well.
Families arrive on a Friday evening and stay through brunch on Sunday, with delicious and family-friendly meals provided by the RKY food services team.
Get to know the other families while RKY staff facilitate a variety of our traditional camp programs.
Enjoy waterfront activities like canoeing, kayaking and swimming (weather permitting, of course!). Have fun with land-based activities like high ropes, climbing, archery, arts & crafts, and more.
Join us for a relaxing weekend on beautiful Eagle Lake. It's entirely up to you if you would like to sit on the dock or go on a nice walk in the woods. Pamper yourself and have fun at RKY Camp with women of all ages.
This year you can look forward to many activities during Women’s Wellness Weekends:
An indulgent, delicious (yet healthy) menu
Yoga and Fitness sessions throughout the weekend
Reading, relaxing, or enjoying a glass of wine by the fire
Outdoor Activities such as Canoeing, Kayaking, High Ropes, Archery, Arts & Crafts and more

Unfortunately, RKY Camp did not run March Break Camp in 2022. We hope to run this fun-filled week of programming again in 2023—keep checking back here for updates!
Winter at RKY
RKY Camp is able to offer full service winter outdoor education and facility rentals for clients. All of our programming (except for our water based activities) is available during the winter time.
In addition, RKY also offers these exciting winter-specific activities listed below (weather and conditions permitting).
Snow Much Fun!
CROSS COUNTRY SKI
Eagle Lake is a great place to learn to cross country ski, or challenge yourself if you already know how! Our trails are great to explore & learn how to go up & down hills on skis! We love to educate a bit about the history of cross country skiing & why it is such a great winter activity!
Explore our site on one of North America’s oldest modes of transportation! Snowshoeing is a great way to be active and have fun while learning about the way our ancestors would travel around the backcountry. Snow shoeing can be a fun program just on it’s own, or paired with a Winter Ecology or Animal Tracking session.
Another winter classic! Slip sliding your way down a hill on one of our camp provided crazy carpets. Bring your family's favourite sled to take it up a notch!
The classic game of soccer is fun in the winter because falling down doesn’t result in skinned knees! We like to add another ball or two to keep everyone on their toes!
Many people think winter = wet = it’s hard to start fires. Our staff can teach participants how fun and rewarding it is to build outdoor fires in the winter. There is nothing like roasting marshmallows on a fire you built in the snow!
As long as you can still feel your fingers you can climb! Safely strapped in, our certified staff help belay you in our many Adventure features—such as the Vertical Play Pen. Learn more about Adventure.
RKY Camp located on beautiful Eagle Lake, has the good fortune of being able to provide an excellent skating rink for participants. Please bring along your own ice skates and helmet. This activity is weather dependent as some years, the ice on the lake is not thick enough to safely use as a program area.
QUINZEE SLEEP OUT
Geared for older participants (13+) learn how to make a "Quinzee" and even sleep in it! The sleep out is optional and must pass instructor judgement of the quinzee and the participant’s preparedness before being allowed to sleep out. Note: Sleep out can only be done if your group is at RKY for at least 2 nights.
Create your own pizza, complete a craft challenge, read by the fire, make a hot tea or a fun bracelet. Our staff have lots of activities and group games for you to choose from.
