Yes! We try our best to honour cabin mate requests if they are made during the registration process. Be sure to include the camper’s first and last name to in your request. If you have a cabin mate request after the time of registration please email us at
Campers sleep in a cabin with up to 10 other cabin mates of the same age. Two staff also sleep in the cabin with them to provide overnight supervision.
No, there are no bathrooms in our cabins. There are shared bathrooms near the cabins that campers will have access to, as well as bathrooms in our main dining hall.
Campers get to choose their daily activities each morning. Campers can sign up with friends or move around independently.
We can accommodate most dietary needs for campers and are focused on providing high quality well balanced meals while they are at camp. Please indicate on the registration form if your camper has any dietary needs. Our camp is nut free and we try to avoid common allergens. Dietary needs such as vegetarians, gluten free and lactose free are common diets that we mange for campers. If you have questions please contact us at
We do not provide snacks throughout the day except for before bed. Campers are provided lots of options during meals and we do our very best to make sure campers are getting enough food throughout the day.

There are a few different ways you can communicate with your camper.

  1. You can pre-write letters and drop them off at the beginning of camp to be delivered
  2. You can send them a letter the old fashioned way using Canada Post
  3. You can use our one way email system Bunk1. You will receive information about how to access this in our emails before the start of your campers session
We do not post photos while campers are at camp. We post photos from each session a few days after the session has ended.
At camp, our top priority is creating a supportive and nurturing environment for our campers. Because of this, we do not have the time to call and provide each family with an update. If you have concerns, you can send an email and we will do our best to give you a brief update. No news is good news when it comes to camping, if we need to be in touch for any reason we will reach out to you.

Please reference our packing list to find out what to pack for camp.
