Need to escape the heat? Nothing beats a refreshing dip in Bark Lake. We have two designated swim areas to meet all your swimming needs!
The Waterfront: located in the core section of camp. If you are looking for a quick swim to cool off this is your place. You can either walk in from the small beach or slip in off of one of the docks a little deeper. This section is roped off and where swim tests take place.
Second Beach (located about 15 minutes from the Dining Hall) should be your destination if you want a longer, more relaxing swim period. This natural sandy beach also has a volleyball court and fire pit. The shallow swimming area is perfect for schools groups and families! Consider pairing a Second Beach swim period with a Beach Party!
A chaperone must accompany minor participants during the activity. Swim Test can be provided if needed in accordance with OPHEA guidelines. You may also wish to complete a swim test prior to arrival.
If you require lifeguards, please make arrangements with Guest Services prior to your arrival at Bark Lake.
Please note this activity is weather permitting.
