For those after July 31st, refunds of tuition payments may be requested in writing and will only be granted if a replacement for the open spot is found, except in cases of family emergency.

Scholarships

If needed, you may request scholarship online. Your local priest will inform you for scholarship details.

Cabin Assignments

Campers are grouped according to age and gender. Every effort will be made to properly match campers with a compatible group taking into consideration spoken language and birth date that are near to the camp date.

Conduct

All campers are expected to act in ways appropriate to an Orthodox Christian setting. While disciplinary action will be taken to attempt resolution on site, the Camp Director reserves the right to dismiss campers for gross violations of camp rules. Parents will be responsible for arranging and covering costs for their child’s early departure.

Camp Activities

Life at camp takes full advantage of our outdoor setting. Activities include: swimming, canoeing, diving, peddle boating, kayaking, sailing, water tubing, fishing, water trampoline, pontoon boat rides, motor boat rides, football, baseball, indoor skating, soccer, basketball, volleyball, tennis, floor hockey, hiking, arts & crafts, mountain hiking and overnight camping.

Camp Location

Camp Wingate is located in Saint-Adolphe-d’Howard, Québec. Camp is located 2 hours east of Ottawa, 1 hour west of Montreal, 3 hours and a half east of Kingston, and 6 hours east of Toronto. The camp address and directions can be found in the Parent Information Booklet that can be downloaded from the camp website and that will be provide by e-mail upon registration confirmation.

Counselors-in-Training (CITs)

Campers who are 18 years of age by December 31st 2018 may apply to be selected as Counselors-in-Training. CIT applicants should not use this form, but should instead fill out the CIT Application. If you are 18 years old by December 31st 2018, and applying as a CIT, you may also apply as a camper, in case you are not selected as a CIT. However, we do encourage you to return the camper application as soon as possible, as campers are selected on a first come first serve basis.

Dress Code

While camping is of its nature informal, Christian modesty should be your guiding principle when packing. Excessively revealing clothing should not be packed as inappropriate clothing will not be permitted to be worn. Inappropriate clothing includes, but is not limited to: open back tops (including racer-razor backs), low-cut fronts, skin tight clothing, half shirts, leggings, two-piece bathing suits (or one-piece suits with cut outs), tank tops with less than two finger-width straps, shorts cut shorter than a few inches above the knee, low-cut waistlines, clothing bearing inappropriate logos, sayings or advertising, and tank-top undershirts. No more than two pairs of earrings (worn only in ears) are permitted for girls, none for guys. Excess earrings and other body piercings must be removed prior to admittance to camp. Tattoos must be covered at all times while at camp. Sagging pants and exposed underwear are a no-no as well. We ask that all attire be a sign of respect for one’s own self and everyone else in the community. Because of our outdoor setting with uneven terrain, tree roots, etc, backless shoes (flip-flops, etc.), open-toe shoes (most sandals), and high heels are not safe and should not be packed and worn at camp. Athletic shoes must be worn during Afternoon Program. Dress for daily church services is casual but long pants and covered shoulders are required. For Divine Liturgies, celebrated twice each session, boys are expected to wear a collared shirt (tie preferred) and nice pants other than jeans, and girls should wear a dress or skirt and blouse, with skirt length at least knee-length or longer.
