Sign up for a summer camp experience like no other. With a maximum enrollment of 15 participants per session, The Black Jack Island Adventure Camp offers youth one of the most unique camp experiences in the country. Based on a private 15-acre island near Fitzroy, Ontario, participants become immersed in an environment that could be described as Peter Pan meets the Pirates of the Caribbean.
Under the direction and guidance of our professional crew and experienced staff, Campers set sail each day (weather permitting) on the camp's very own tall ship, “Black Jack”. From the moment participants step aboard this majestic and historical vessel, they are swept up in the training and challenge it takes to sail her. Under direction of the ship's certified Master, participants work closely with crew to learn all aspects of seamanship, from hoisting sails and learning basic navigation to tying knots and even steering. When the evening sky is clear and the weather is warm, the Black Jack may sit out at anchor while participants fall asleep under the stars.
