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).
- 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.
- All lost and found items not claimed by September may be taken to the local thrift store. Please label your clothing
- Please pack sufficient clothes for camper's entire stay at camp (see list). There are no laundry facilities available for the campers.
- 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.
- 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.
