When you register you’ll be able to select your preferred accommodation spaces in your retreat form. We do everything in our power to ensure a comfortable stay for everyone! The room on the left is of a standard room in MacDonald Lodge, a standard room in the Nest has the same number/ style of beds. The photo on the right shows a Nest Family room, with six bunk beds and a bathroom where each element has it’s own little room (the sinks are separate from the shower etc.). Both options have climate control in the room, wifi, dressers, desks, lamps, and power bars.  The differences and advantages of each space are noted in the chart below!Guests are responsible for brining their own linens. 

The Lodge The Nest
Private rooms, each with a twin sized bunk bed and some with queen bunk beds (shown above).Rooms are in the same building as meals and activities, you won’t have to walk outside to access the dining hall!

Shared washrooms located in the same hallway as your room.

Great for individuals and those who prefer not to do extra walking in the rain and snow.

Private rooms with a queen bunk bed (a twin bed above) and twin bunk beds, bathroom attached (like the lodge).Family style rooms with 6 bunk beds, bathroom attached (pictured above).

A short walk from MacDonald Lodge where meals are served and activities are hosted.

Camp Kintail offers flexible pricing with 3 choices for our camp sessions.  The cost is per person for your entire stay including meals and activities. Every family can choose the level of 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, while Option B is the mid-point. These lower rates are made possible by donations from individuals and churches. Please choose the option that suits your needs best. When you register, select your retreat/week and then select your pricing option. The price you choose in no way affects your stay.
