Bullying is never accepted on a camp, in any form. Campers who show signs of bullying will be separated from the group and spend time with one of the Chiefs to discuss what is going on and why they are showing these signs.
Campers who show signs of being bullied will get to talk to their Chiefs and Chief Support until they feel loved, cared for and supported.
Any items that we perceive as inappropriate for camp will be returned to the parent/guardian at the conclusion of camp. We strongly advise that all belongings are labeled, and advise against bringing valuable clothes/items to camp. Although all care will be taken, we cannot be responsible for lost items.
Lost & Found
All Lost & Found items are brought into the sign-out hall upon the conclusion of camp so you will be able to have a look through to retrieve any lost items. Campers are always encouraged to keep their belongings neat in their cabins however we encourage you to put your child’s name on their personal belongings before sending them to camp!
Contacting your Child at Camp
Kids love hearing from home, so each camp has a unique email address that you can contact your child through, just make sure to place your child’s full name at the top of your email!
Early & Late pick-up
As we regularly have new groups coming in a few hours after the conclusion of each camp, we ask that you arrive on time for signing your child in and out.
Early and late pick up times need to be communicated before camp to maintain the smooth running of camp and respect for the campsite staff.
First Aid & Medications
We request that any prescribed medication be provided in dosage boxes with an attached list of name, item, time and dosage clearly marked, and handed to the first aid officer at registration. Depending on the requirements of the medication, if it is possible for medication times to coincide with meal times, this helps greatly as well.
SMOKING, ALCOHOL, AND NON-PRESCRIBED DRUGS ARE NOT PERMITTED AT CAMP.
If your child has had any infectious illness, please make sure that they are well (symptom-free for 48 hours) before sending to camp.
Meals, Menu, & Special Diets
One of the first things people tend to hear about Adanac - a part from all of the awesome activities - is the exceptional food!
We provide campers with three main meals a day, as well as morning & afternoon tea, dessert, and supper.
Our menu changes daily, and includes a nutritious and balanced diet.
Special dietary requirements are catered for the length of camp - just make sure to include your child’s dietary information in their application!
