Winter Camp

Children playing in snow at Winter Camp / Bill Wilson.

FAQs

What do you do in inclement weather?

We’re outside as much as possible! We love the outdoors at camp and spend as much time outside as we can. That being said, we do have access to indoor space at all times and can spend some time inside in extreme weather. We do have cold weather policies, including the possibility that camp could be cancelled if we know the day is going to be colder than -30C degrees.
