Sun and Bug Protection: Please apply sunscreen and bug spray every day prior to arriving at camp. Our staff is vigilant about helping your kids reapply during the day. So be sure to pack sunscreen (preferably spray-on,) and bug spray for your children everyday.

Weather

We try to keep your children outdoors whenever possible. Our facility includes a large tented picnic shelter, shaded forest area, and our Junior General Camp shelter that are used for many activities. When weather conditions are too extreme to stay outside we will add walls to our tented shelter for extra protection from the elements. Please do keep in mind that we are an outdoor camp and we will do our very best to keep your child safe no matter what weather comes our way. We do ask that you check the weather and send your camper dressed accordingly. For important weather information CLICK HERE.


Registration

General Camp offers a buddy system where if your child and a friend may request to be in the same group. Buddy requests for General Campers will be accommodated to the best of our ability if the request is made at the time of registration, and the age difference between the two children is not unreasonable.

Campers who are entering Grade 1 will have the choice of Junior General Camp or General Camp. If you need help determining what program is best for your camper please email us to discuss. Thank you!

Campers who are entering Grade 8 will have the choice of General Camp or LIT Camp. If you need help determining what program is best for your camper please email us to discuss. Thank you!

The Friday of our final week of camp each summer is reserved for one last day of fun and adventure. It is less structured in order to give our campers one last chance to do an activity or 2 that they are passionate about. We will end the day with a dance party they will never forget. This day is a special one and the theme of the day on every last day of camp is all about starting the countdown to camp for the following summer!
