Kilcoo Camp is a residential boys' camp located on Gull Lake near Minden, Ontario, Canada and has been in operation since 1932. In 2006 Kilcoo Camp celebrated its 75th year. The camp tends to draw campers from Toronto, although it has been know to have campers attend from around the world. A plurality of the campers hail from private schools such as Upper Canada College, Royal St. George's College, Greenwood College School, Bayview Glen and Crescent School, and North Toronto public schools such as Lawrence Park Collegiate.

Kilcoo Camp offers many activities such as: swimming, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, woodcraft, archery, arts and crafts, mountain biking, rock climbing, and many others. Kilcoo also has the facilities for basketball, ball hockey, baseball, soccer, football, and other sports. There are always numerous special activities throughout the summer, including Bingo, Capture the Flag, and theme days like World Records Day. Each month is highlighted by its own exciting campwide event: The Bushpede in July and the Kilcoo Olympics in August.

The camp is divided into five sections based on age. From youngest to oldest these are Trailblazers, Pathfinders, Nor Westers, Trappers (aka the "lost" section) and Voyageurs.

History

Kilcoo Camp was founded in 1932 by Charlie Plewman. During Plewman's tenure, the camp grew extensively and gained a strong clientele among parents and children in Toronto. John "Chief" Latimer purchased the camp from Plewman and became director and owner. During his time as Director he still instituted Plewman's ideas and combined with his own unique directing style. After Chief retired as director, Hal Hannaford, currently the Headmaster of Royal St. George's School in Toronto, was named director. Following Hal's directorship, John's son David "Lub" Latimer became the current director. David has been the director of Kilcoo for over 23 years.

Starting in the summer of 2007 filming for the Disney Channel Original Movie Camp Rock started in various locations in Ontario. Kilcoo Camp was selected as one of the locations for the film.
