Info to know


 cabinmate policy

Our cabins fit 9 campers.

Cabin Mate Policy:

  • Each camper can request up to 3 cabin mates.

  • During online registration, parents can send or accept requests to/from friends. Requests must be accepted in the Parent Portal in order for us to place friends together.

  • It is the parent’s responsibility to communicate with other parents about mutual requests or not wanting to accept a request.

  • Requests must be within one grade of each camper.

  • Siblings are generally placed in separate cabins; unless requested otherwise.

Cabin mate requests may be submitted or changed two weeks prior to camp.

waitlist policy

In order for your camper to be on a wait list, they must be registered with the deposit paid. Here are some guidelines for you to follow when dealing with a wait list situation:

  • When a spot opens, you will be notified by e-mail.

  • If your plans change; cancel your camper's wait listed registration immediately. Once a spot is offered, your camper is registered and cancelling will incur the $100 cancellation fee.

  • Do not register your camper in more than the session he/she plans to attend. Registering your camper in a session “just in case” they do not get into the wait listed camp that they want; will result in a $100 cancellation fee if that session is cancelled. If a child is on multiple wait lists or in multiple sessions, the deposits will not be transferred to another week that your child is attending, but held as a processing fee of $100 (each), unless they attend each camp.

  • If your camper isn’t offered a spot in camp one week prior to the start of camp, your deposit will be automatically refunded.
