Useful Information

Campers are advised to mark all belongings - the Camp will not be responsible for lost, stolen or damaged articles.  At the end of the camping season, all unclaimed articles will be donated to a charity.

Dress Code  All campers are expected to dress appropriately to a standard similar to what would be expected in school.

Snacks  Due to food allergies, no food is permitted to be brought to camp by campers.

Meals  Nutritious balanced meals are served from a modern kitchen in a supervised dining hall.  Any child that requires a special diet should make sure that advance preparation is made with the Cook.

Medications  All medications must be turned over to the camp's First Aid Co-ordinator upon arrival at camp.

Discipline Policy  All campers are required to behave in a manner that maintains and promotes an environment of safety, love, and respect for staff, campers and the property.  When any serious disciplinary action is required, parents will be notified and if unacceptable behaviour continues, a camper may be required to leave the camp.

Cabins  Campers live with a group of fellow campers in cabins under the supervision of qualified and trained staff.

Visiting Camp  Visiting your child at camp is not encouraged except on opening and closing days. Visitation tends to interrupt the daily camp schedule. However, if you feel that it is necessary to do so, please contact the Camp Director to make arrangements.
