We encourage students to stay unplugged and leave their cell phones behind. Please note: We will not take responsibility for any lost or stolen items.
Our sleeping accommodations will vary from group to group in order to accommodate all our students. Some will be sleeping in the lodge, some in cabins, and others, older more adventurous types, will be sleeping in covered wagons with built-in bunk beds. Please bring your own bedding, including a small mattress sheet and a warm sleeping bag and pillow. Students are grouped together with their small groups and small group leader(s) stay with them in their assigned space.
We try to accommodate diets that are: vegetarian, lactose-free, and gluten-free. There are too many variables beyond our control for us to claim to have a peanut-free environment. But we do not knowingly serve peanut products from our food service or Tuck Shop. Campers, guests, and staff are requested to not bring peanut products onto the site (this includes care packages or mail items).
We DO use products that list “may contain traces of peanut products” in their list of ingredients. Our staff is instructed to remove peanut products if they learn that these products have been brought to Camp. The private residences of staff living year-round on the site are not required to be peanut-free.
Campers, guests, and staff who may have anaphylactic reactions should bring two EpiPens and carry them at all times.
The goal of this retreat is to help students develop better daily disciplines with God in His word, in prayer and in worship. We do this through main teaching time, small group discussion and activities. Our hope and prayer is that students will come home more motivated and better equipped to meet with God regularly on their own.
- Our students will have the opportunity to participate in the various activities listed below:
- Team Building Activities
- Initiative Course
- Climbing Tower
- High Ropes
- Carpet Ball
- Gaga Ball
For those of you that would like to receive updates while we are in Muskoka, be sure to follow us on
