What will I do at camp?
That all depends on what camp you register for! Check out our Programs page for specific answers.
What do I bring to camp?
Weekday Excursion Camps: Sun hat, water bottle, extra layers for weather and warmth, backpack, bug spray, sunscreen, and sturdy footwear (ideally waterproof), and a bagged lunch with snacks. We’ll take care of the rest.
Overnight Adventure Camps: Sun hat, flashlight, water bottle, a fresh change of clothes, extra layers for weather and warmth, backpack, bug spray, sunscreen, sturdy footwear (ideally waterproof), toothbrush, toothpaste, any other toiletries, medications, and a sleeping bag with sleeping pad.
*We provides tents, food, and other essential camping equipment. We can also loan sleeping bags and sleeping pads to those who do not have their own.
What kind of food will I eat at Overnight Adventure Camps?
The overnight food menu is planned, prepped and cooked by our Peer Leaders under the supervision of Camp Councellors. We try to incorporate as much from our community garden into meals as possible. We will do our best to accommodate dietary restrictions and follow a meat-free diet. Because the food menu varies week to week, we encourage you to reach out to us with any questions or concerns you may have.
