If we aren’t Christian, can we still attend Cave Springs Camp?
Absolutely! Cave Springs Camp is an inclusive camp open to people of all cultural and religious backgrounds! There are certain aspects during the day that involve the Christian faith. These include saying grace before meals, singing Christian songs and spending about 45 minutes a day learning about Christian values and beliefs. We also spend lots of time with typical camp activities like swimming, canoeing, archery, crafts and more!
Do I need to send my child with lunch, snacks or extra money?
Stay tuned for more information regarding lunch and snacks for Summer 2022.
Tuck money is included in the registration fee, so extra money is not needed for tuck. We will have t-shirts, and water bottles for purchase.
What is the ratio of counsellors to campers?
The Ontario Camps Association requires a ratio of 1 counsellor to 8 campers. This means we never go above this ratio. Our camper to counsellor ratio is 1:6. The ratios of all our staff to campers is around 1:4.
Can my camper request to be in the same group with his/her friend or sibling?
There is a section in our registration form (on CampBrain) where you can list one request for your camper, and we will do our best to accommodate these requests, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee requests. Groups are made according to age, therefore it is more likely a request will be granted if the two campers are the same or similar in age.
My camper needs 1:1 support, or my child has special needs, can he/she attend camp?
Cave Springs Camp welcomes and accommodates campers of all abilities. Each week we have a designated number of spots available for campers who require 1:1 support during their stay at camp.
If your camper has particular needs you think we should know about, please contact the camp so we can understand how to best provide a positive experience for your camper!
Can my camper bring electronics to camp?
Cave Springs Camp strongly encourages campers to not bring electronics to camp and to spend the time at camp in nature rather than on electronic devices. Cave Springs Camp is not responsible for any damage that may occur to electronics that campers do bring. We try to encourage both campers and parents to be in the present meaning we discourage the use of cell phones with campers. Should you have something you would like to say to your camper, please contact the camp, and we can relay the message.
Should I send my camper with a full water bottle?
Please do! Hydration is a very important part of life at camp. All of our taps on site contain drinking water, so your camper will be able to fill up their water bottle throughout the day. We aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible, please avoid sending your camper with a disposable plastic water bottle. We have reusable water bottles for purchase should you choose.
