Just outside of Ottawa, in the rolling Gatineau Hills, lies Camp Fortune. This isn't the kind of camp where kids toast marshmallows and see how many twigs they can stuff into their mouths, however. To see many of its visitors, you'll need to look up. Adventurers of all ages climb and glide through the aerial park's sun-dappled forest canopy across three different courses, one especially for kids. The Explorer park is three hours of zig-zagging suspended bridges, tunnels made of barrels, and pulse-pounding zip-lines. The shorter but more challenging Amazone places 24 obstacles and seven ziplines throughout a multi-tiered treetop network.
In warm weather, skiing slopes reveal an extensive network of mountain biking trails, all scrupulously maintained and accessible by lift. Punishing rises and thrilling descents, and an obstacle-filled pump track, face intermediate to expert cyclists. A mountain-bike camp teaches kids topics such as trail safety and repurposing training wheels, all overseen by a staff of certified wilderness experts.
Groups often take over Camp Fortune for weddings, banquets, corporate gatherings, and other large-scale events from April to November. A main lodge and cocktail lounge host formal wine dinners and casual barbecue buffets alike, and the Chalet des érables holds private retreats.
