Dropping off at Camp

Check in is between 4PM and 6PM on arrival day (the first day of session). When you come down the Jackpine Trail, you’ll be greeted by our staff and our Program Director will connect your child with their leaders. We ask that families bring in their camper’s luggage with them.

For new families: please note that you cannot drive right into camp. Our parking lot is off of the Red Squirrel Rd and from there you will walk with your camper’s luggage into camp (about 1 km on a forest trail – your first portage!).

Directions to Wanapitei can be found here.

Picking up at Camp

Pick up is between 8AM and 10AM on the last day of session. Consider spending the night before at the Chateau (and joining us for a banquet!), in Temagami or North Bay as it is a big travel day.

Directions to Wanapitei can be found here.

If you are running late – no need to rush – please call the office and let us know when we can expect you. Drive safely and we will see you soon!

Camper Buses

Plan to arrive about 10 minutes before your scheduled departure/arrival time and check in with the staff member at the bus. The bus cannot be held for those that arrive late, and you will be asked to meet the bus at the next stop if you do not arrive on time. Please note that our buses travel through cottage country, so delays do happen. We do our best to communicate with families via email if the bus is running significantly behind schedule.

Bussing is offered at the start and end of every two- and four-week session. One-week Trail Blazer campers will therefore only have bussing to OR from camp. Please check your dates and plan accordingly.
