Arrivals & Departures

When you drop your child off on the first day of residential camp, you will be directed to the parking area where you will be met by your child’s Camp Counsellor. They will assist you with the luggage and will show you to the cabin your child will be residing in.

This year, we are excited to invite families to join us on the last day of our two week sessions  for our Closing Ceremonies. It is our chance to help you get a glimpse of the camaraderie and accomplishments that develops when a whole group of campers live and grow together!

*****These will take place at the end of each two week session (July A, July B, August A, August B) and will change our usual departure schedule.
