Cow Island Day Camp 

We've wrapped up two weeks of day camp already! Thanks to our awesome staff and the parents and grandparents who have stepped in to help, everything is running really smoothly.

Day camp runs until August 3rd, Monday to Friday from 9 am to noon. The cost is $15 per child per day, with a discounted rate of $65 per child per week.

While drop-ins are welcome, we really prefer that you register ahead of time online, so our staff can focus on welcoming you and your child when you arrive. Tuck can be pre-paid at the same time as registration, under the Donation tab before you check out. (see information on registration form about tuck) We ask you to print out a hard copy of your completed registration form and bring it with you on your child's first day this summer, so that staff has access to medical and contact information on hand. 

Attendance is limited to 16-18 campers per day, depending on the age mix. To avoid disappointment, register online now, by clicking the link below. Day camp is a service offered to BRLA members and their guests.  Our membership year started April 1 and if you haven't yet joined or renewed - it is easy to do so on our Membership page.

Our 2018 Day Camp Staff!



We welcome last year's lead counsellor Mya back to day camp this summer!

"I would love to work for BRLA again this summer... I developed special connections with the amazing campers last summer and really look forward to seeing them again."



New to camp this year, Jillian has NLS swim qualifications.

"My family has owned a cottage on the Big Rideau Lake for years and I remember going to Cow Island when I was a child. I have lots of experience working with children. I checked out the day camp pictures - it looks like tons of fun!"

We've hired a terrific Camp Counsellor Staff Team this year. Themes they have planned for this year's camp are:

Week 1 - Mission Impossible

Week 2 - Fishing Derby - Check out our Photo Gallery!

To keep our day camp as accessible to as many kids as possible we are not increasing the daily fee this year. However, we welcome DONATIONS to help defray BRLA's higher staffing costs due to the increase in minimum wage. If using the paper form, just add an amount in the provided box; if registering online, just return to the Donations page after completing your registration.

We require one fully completed registration form (paper or online) per child before we can accept them at camp on the island. However, if you would like to add on days for a child previously registered this summer, just let us know at

If you wish your children to have access to tuck at camp, you can pre-pay when you register by adding this amount under the Donations link and specifying "tuck" in the Other category. See the registration form for details about "tuck".
