OUR ROOTS

In 1991, while serving as a camp counsellor in a boys camp in the US, Ron Weber had a dream of starting a wilderness camp in his native Ontario. Crane Lake Discovery Camp (CLDC) is the realization of that dream and a not-for-profit organization. Since 2004, almost 250 campers have shared Ron’s dream.

THE CONCEPT

Crane Lake Discovery Camp (CLDC) is built on the concept of therapeutic wilderness camping. At CLDC, campers learn and continuously work on improving important life skills, such as goal setting, adopting daily routines, problem-solving, communicating and being accountable within the group.
