  • Laundry services are not available to campers. However, our First Aid Attendant is able to help campers who may need laundry done for various reasons. 

  • We are a non-denominational Christian organization which welcomes campers from all backgrounds and beliefs.

We encourage campers to consider issues about life and faith through Biblical teaching, music, skits, prayer, and evening devotions.

Questions about... 

Health & Safety / Food & Diet / Our Staff

  • All medication is given to our team during check-in. Our First Aid Attendant administers prescriptions and meds at meal times and in the evening as necessary. Campers are not permitted to keep medication in cabins.

  • We aim to have three or more advanced medically trained staff on site every week of the summer. This team administers first aid, distributes camper medication, and delivers an opening day safety talk with all campers on sun safety, hydration, and safe footwear. In serious emergencies, the Mission Hospital is less than 10 minutes away.

  • Early each week, our program team performs a routine practice drill. This ensures everyone knows what the alarm sounds like and where to go in the event of a missing person or emergency situation.

  • Our Kitchen Manager and the kitchen team provide the best meals for campers with special diets. We can accommodate diets which are vegetarian, lactose-free, gluten-free, vegan and more. If you have a question about a specific diet please contact us before registering.

    Lost something at Camp? Email our office with your camper's info and the best description you can of your lost item.   

    If an item is found, our team will follow up with you to let you know!

    Once the summer is over, lost items will be kept until October 1st. 

  • how do you handle bed wetting?

    If your child is younger and prone to wetting the bed or you believe they may wet the bed while away from home, we kindly request that you pack enough pull-ups to wear at bedtime for the duration of their time here at Camp. Our Camp cabin leaders will ensure discretion with regards to the campers who wear pull-ups. The use of pull-ups helps avoid messy and embarrassing situations for our camper. We will also contact parents if it was not indicated on the health form. 

  • what should i pack?

    For everything you need to know as a family once registered, check out our parents page (click here)

    A packing list will be sent out to campers a few weeks prior to their camps along with other information that will help your camper's experience be super smooth. 

  • how many campers in a cabin?

    Cabin size is dependent on the cabin that a child is in.

    At Camp, each cabin has between 4 - 5 bunk beds for campers and 1 - 2 bunk beds for staff.
