Camp Forms

ALL campers must fill out and mail in/scan both

a Health Form and a Transportation Form.

-

ALL campers must have a signed transport form on file with Camp, regardless of transport.

If you wish to order gear from camp, please fill out and mail in our Gear Order Form.   

Transport Details

Documents & Identification

 

Please make sure you and your Camper have proper identification.
For boys entering Canada from the US and overseas, a passport or birth certificate.

Adults need a valid passport if you are planning to come to Camp to drop off or pick up a camper. Your camper under age 16 does NOT require a passport for road travel from US for camp. A passport IS required for air travel.

Passports, birth certificates, airline tickets and other documents should be turned over to the Staff member on hand at the earliest opportunity, or hand-delivered to the camp office at Pathfinder by parents dropping off.

Medications

 

All camper medications should be in their original containers, all in one ziploc bag with an identifying label and dosage instructions enclosed. This bag should be given to the Staff member on hand at the earliest opportunity. For example, hand to the bus counselors before departure. This includes over the counter remedies.

Security at Airports

 

To avoid delays and hassles, make sure your Camper packs all objects such as pocket knives, soaps, lotions and shampoo, etc. in his checked baggage and not in a carry-on bag. Have his identification ready to show or give over to the staff member on hand. It is useful to have the camper carry a copy of the camp transport form with him. The transport counselors also have the form.


Give your camper the Camp’s phone number, 705.633.5553. Give the Camp your camper's cell phone number if he carries one.

Tips for Comfortable Travel

 

Be sure your camper has his rain jacket handy on travel day. In his day pack is the best bet.

Bus campers pack a lunch and some drinks. The bus does not make a food stop, so the packed lunch is a better choice than providing cash. The bus ride usually includes an on-board movie; these are G or PG titles. The bus has a restroom. Counselors are on board to supervise at all times, and will meet and greet at the bus stops.

Airline campers bring a small sum of cash for food and drink. Expect your camper to meet the Pathfinder Staff member as soon as he walks off his flight and clears the Customs inspection lobby. If your camper has a mobile phone, you can have him contact you to confirm that he has met his staff member on arrival or checked in for departure. Once campers are in the care of our staff member, they will supervise communications and any personal electronics, until they are secured in the camp office.
No exceptions.

Parents driving campers please drop off and pick up

campers at the appropriate times. See below
