Please do not bring:

Cell phone, cigarettes, alcohol, non-prescription drugs, radio, mp3, video games, jewellery  chewing gum, expensive clothing, inappropriate clothing (too revealing or offensive logos).


  1. We do not allow cell phones on the property to ensure campers' privacy. Please don't bring digital cameras. Disposable ones are allowed but we will be uploading each week's photos to a secure website soon after each week of camp for you to download.
  2. All lost and found items not claimed by September may be taken to the local thrift store.  Please label your clothing
  3. Please pack sufficient clothes for camper's entire stay at camp (see list). There are no laundry facilities available for the campers.
  4. Please be advised that phone privileges are not normally given to the campers. We have found that this increases homesickness incredibly! Parents will be contacted by a staff member in the case of an emergency.
  5. Any medicine brought to camp must have the child's name on it, be in its original container and given to the camp health officer upon arrival.
