Camp General Information

Rules of the Forest

Please review with your group that you are in a conservation area and there are Federal/Provincial and Municipal conservations rules in effect. You are in “natures” home and must treat it with respect as you would your own home. The wildlife, trees, vegetation, water and yes even the bugs are here for your enjoyment and education. Doing any damage in this area will affect the ability of an animal, bird or insect to survive damaging or even destroying that species. Stop and Think first!

Recycling

All paper and cardboard may be burned, wastewater from cooking or washing at your campsite is to be poured into the kybo holding tanks. Wastewater from the kitchen may be poured down the sink. Recycling bins are located in the kitchen and dining hall and labelled accordingly. Recycling bins are lined with clear plastic bags. Cold ashes from the wood stoves and camp fire pits may be scattered in the woods away from any trails as the ashes are bio-degradable.

Water Facilities

Water for the camp is supplied from a well which is spring fed. Signs are posted "Do Not Drink The Water, Has Not Been Tested". Since we have no way of connecting a UV light source to the water, Hastings County Health inspector has signed off on the signage. Water is fine for washing dishes. You may want to bring your own bottled drinking water.
