2SLGBTQIA+ Inclusion

Camp Kintail is a 2SLGBTQIA+ affirming camp that strives to be a safe place for all guests to enjoy all the activities a summer camp has to offer while being their authentic selves. Our full policy can be found here.


Camp Kintail has been Rainbow Registered since 2023.

Our inclusion policy and practices include:

  • all-gender cabin options

  • all-gender washrooms in MacDonald Lodge, The Nest and Harmony House - period product disposals are available in all washrooms on site and guests are free to use the washroom they feel most comfortable in.

  • spaces on forms to share pronouns

  • staff are trained on creating safer spaces for campers, guests and staff, including rationale and training to provide campers and guests with an emotionally and physically safer environment.

  • Camp Kintail invited speakers to present on accessibility and 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion. Speakers have included TQAMP and Sawchuk Accessible Solutions. 


Flexible Pricing

Camp Kintail understands that the opportunity to come to camp is a privilege. Camp is about being a part of community, and communities look out for each other.  Together, camp staff, alumni, board members, camp families, Presbyterian congregations, and Kintail supporters share of their resources to help make summer camp and retreats accessible financially. 


Camp Kintail offers flexible pricing with three choices for camp sessions. Families can choose payment that is right for their situation. Option A is the traditionally subsidized rate, Option C is the rate that is more representative of the true cost of camp, and Option B is the mid-point. Camperships will continue to be available for families that require assistance regardless of the option selected. The payment option you select in no way affects your camper's experience at Camp Kintail. 



Camp Kintail believes the cost of camp should never be a barrier to participation in summer camp. Families can choose one of the three flexible pricing options, or alternatively, indicate through the registration process what they (or another organization or congregation) are able to cover (which could range from nothing to most of the fee). A Camp Kintail campership will cover the remainder, until the funds for a given year are exhausted. There is no need to explain why a family may need help or to provide proof of their financial situation. Our full policy can be found here.


One-on-One Supports

Each week Camp Kintail offers a limited number of one-on-one counsellors to provide extra support for campers to have a fun and meaningful week of camp at no extra cost to the family or camper. One-on-one counsellors are not PSWs or EAs, but staff members who are excited to help a child have a safe and fun camp experience. These support spaces are available on a first come first served basis. If your camper may require one-on-one support, please email
