Weekend Warriors is a unique program only available through COH. Consistently a success with COH participants this fall, Weekend Warriors will return in spring 2018!
At Weekend Warriors, participants experience a unique opportunity to learn and challenge themselves in an outdoor environment, building and cooking on a fire, on ropes courses, hiking along beautiful natural trails and enjoying time with friends (free from the overstimulation of the city). Depending on the time of year, the groups can try different seasonal activities from snowshoeing and archery to low ropes and nature photography. Programming in the evenings include storytelling by the fire and theatre improv activities!
Stay tuned for 2018 Weekend Warriors!

Ready to get away and unwind with friends? Each summer, Cottage Crashers provides week-long cottage vacations that allow participants to kick back, relax and enjoy the outdoors. Over the course of the week, participants plan and prepare meals, take care of the cottage and participate in activities in the surrounding communities.
This incredible program is possible because of generous donors just like you! Providing use of your cottage means meaningful social connections for our participants all year long. If you are able to put forward your cottage for this great program, please get in touch with us at email@example.com. We kindly ask that your cottage be 3 hours or less from Guelph in order to make travel more accessible for all participants.
