Children's Camp Cabin-Mates

We are looking forward to another amazing camp season!
Karma and Tibi, our 2017 goat campers, have decided to stay in Peterborough this summer. Our chicken friends will be joining us; there are some pretty awesomely unique chickens at camp this summer, just like our diverse camper population. We celebrate this diversity!

Michelle McComb is the Camp Manager, Sadie Galvin-Hynes is joining us as Assistant Camp Manager, Thomas Diekmeyer is serving in the role of Program Coordinator and Hannah Wolfe-Parthun is stepping up into role of Head Cook.
All of our Unicamp staff are excited about another great year at camp. Something that can only happen with YOU here to join us.

If you have not already completed your forms or payment, please go online to your account to complete this. We are loving the new online system and while there are a few tweaks we will be making to enhance its functionality, we are excited about how it has simplified the process, including your check-in when you arrive.

Our camping packing list is available online here: Children’s Camp Packing List


Important Information for Smooth Check-In and Pickup:

Drop off Sunday: 2-4pm

Pick up Saturday: 1pm, with a talent show starting at approximately 1:30pm. If you are not able to attend the talent show please let your child know ahead of time as they often get upset once they see other parents arriving.

What to expect at check-in:

  • All paperwork and payments are to be completed online before arrival. We anticipate this change and the online nature of our registration system will significantly improve our check-in speed and process.
  • Lice check: we ask that you please carefully check your child for lice BEFORE arriving for camp, and take the measures required to ensure there are no lice or nits present on your child. We will do a lice check when they arrive. Please note: We will not be allowing on-site lice treatments due to awareness around our water system and the impacts of such products. Andrea the “Lice Lady” has agreed to be on-site to treat your child without the use of chemicals for $80.00 per treatment. This amount will be paid to her directly. We can check your child into camp once they are nit and lice free.
  • There will be a check-in table. Once we have checked your child in, we will let you know what cabin your child is staying in and you can go meet the counselor and get settled in.

Food/Meals:
Hannah, our Head Cook brings with her kitchen management experience and a passion for culinary arts. Our focus is to ensure hearty meals and snacks for all kids. If your child has allergies, is vegan, gluten free etc, we will seek to accommodate and we also welcome you sending with your child some snacks or desserts that they prefer. We will also have a snack box available, including fresh fruit for those hungry between meals and snack times.

Please do not bring dogs to camp for drop off and pick up. We welcome dogs on property during Dog Friendly Weeks only, in an effort to accommodate those with furry friends and those who have sensitivities to dogs. Thank you for your help with this effort.

If you have questions about payment, forms, policies, camperships or administrative related information, please contact Unicamp’s Executive Director Mel Horvath-Lucid: exec.director@unicampofontario.ca

If you have camp related questions, concerns, feedback on camps or programs or other questions related to onsite camp life and programming, please contact Camp Manager Michelle McComb: camp.manager@unicampofontario.ca
