CQ Northwestern Ontario

A message from the Camp Director

Welcome to the Camp Quality Northwestern Ontario page.  Our camp is located only 45 minutes north of Thunder Bay on beautiful Loon Lake.

We look forward to welcoming back returning campers and volunteers, and of course, we are always excited to welcome new members to our camp family. We hope you will consider joining us as a camper or a volunteer.  We always have a ton of fun, participating in a wide variety of activities throughout the week both on and off-site, enjoying the company of old friends and loving the opportunity to make new friends. Everyone gets to be a kid and get a little ridiculous!!

On behalf of our Camp Organizing Committee, I’d like to thank the many volunteers, campers, families and community supporters who make our camp and year-round programming possible. We couldn’t do it without you and your enthusiasm and passion for camp is absolutely incredible. With your help, we are able to keep camp amazing.

See you at camp this summer!

About Samantha Stovel

2020 will be Sam’s first year as Camp Director at Camp Quality Northwestern Ontario. She first became aware of what CQ was when her cousin became a camper at CQNWO. Every summer her cousin would come home from camp week, talking non-stop about the amazing time she had! It was clear to Sam that CQ made her cousin feel special and that it was something she needed to experience for herself. As a business graduate from Lakehead University, Sam landed her first job after school with Camp Quality as the Marketing & Community Outreach Intern. She began the one year internship in October of 2016 and quickly fell in love with the goals and missions of the organization. Her first summer at camp made her realize why Camp Quality is such a rewarding and unforgettable opportunity. After the internship, Sam wanted to stay involved and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be on the Camp Organizing Committee as the Co-Fund Development Coordinator. While in the role, she was constantly being reminded of why this organization is so important to her, the campers, volunteers and donors. She is so excited for the adventures ahead and can’t wait for the next camp season!
