We welcome you and your family to enjoy Beausoleil Island with us for our Spring, Summer, or Fall Family Camp program. Our Family Camp programs offer a full schedule of family focused program options; you may choose to participate in all the programs, or you may choose a quieter schedule of doing your own thing. Some families come to CQE for the activities and fun, while others come simply to enjoy the calm and beauty of Georgian Bay. Whatever you choose to do, our friendly and experienced staff are on hand to make sure that your stay at CQE meets all of your expectations. Our staff members are caring individuals that are trained camp facilitators, as well as skilled instructors, guides, and educators. All CQE staff are available and on-call to you throughout the camp. Family Camp is an ideal opportunity to get a taste of camp and reconnect with the people you love while exploring Georgian Bay Island National Park. In the spring and fall, we offer both 2 and 3 night Family camps, while our Summer Family Camp runs for 4 nights, allowing families to experience a longer getaway with their family. We hope you can join us!


Upon arrival, your family receives a program schedule for the week. At each meal, we announce the program options include archery, hiking, swimming, boating, arts and crafts, music, campfires, and of course, lots of classic camp games!


Guardians are responsible for the safety of their children at all times, except during staff-led activities that do not require a guardian to be present. We ask that guardians bring young children to their programs and pick them up afterward to ensure their safety and so that staff can continue to facilitate programs. Children under the age of 4 must always be accompanied by an adult. Young children are welcome in all program areas, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.


Three meals per day plus snacks, tea, and coffee are served by our CQE Food Service team in our dining hall. There will be no shortage of options for even the pickiest of eaters! We are able to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, just be sure to let us know when you register. If families would like to bring snacks with them to camp, they are more than welcome. There are food storage spaces in our dining hall to ensure critters keep out of the cabins. Please note, CQE is a nut-free facility and we require any food brought to camp to adhere to this.

These retreats are focused on providing a rejuvenating escape for participants, whatever that may look like to you! Whether its reconnecting with nature, jumping in the water, going for a paddle or hike, or napping on the sun warmed rock of the Canadian shield, we are here to provide you with a welcoming camp community and the opportunity for rest. We will have our classic summer camp activities like sailing, archery, arts and crafts, hiking, canoeing and kayaking available with instructional sessions offered by experienced CQE staff.
