What price do I choose? A,B, or C?
Camp Kintail offers flexible pricing with 3 choices for our camp sessions. 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. The option you choose in no way affects your campers time at Kintail. You can learn more about the flexible pricing system here.
How do I pay?
No deposit is taken at the time of registration. The top of your screen during the registration process will give more information about selecting your payment method. You can pay by credit if you choose, however you do not need to input a credit card when you register. To bypass the credit card option just select “Pay by cash or cheque” and use one of the payment methods below.

Camp Kintail Program Descriptions
|Outdoor Adventure||Located on the Kintail site, campers will stay in yurts or cabins. These campers will prepare one third of their meals over the fire and have another one third sent to their site from the kitchen. The remaining meals will take place in the MacDonald Lodge Dining Hall. ODA is a more relaxed,nature based camp. These sessions are perfect for campers who do well with a small group and love spending time in the woods.|
|Discovery Camp||Enjoy meals served at MacDonald Lodge while exploring all the fun activities camp has to offer. These campers will have opportunities to try out all of the fun programs at Kintail and rotate as a cabin to try a variety of programs with their counselors. A great all-around “classic summer camp” experience!|
|Volunteers of Kintail||Designed for high-school students, campers will get to participate in all of Kintail’s activities and programs while earning community service hours which count towards their high school diploma! They help with dishes after each meal but get a chance to enjoy the ropes course and go to the beach every day.|
|Pre-LIT||Pre-LITs will gain valuable skills relating to leadership at home, school, and in the community as well as ORCKA certification in flat-water canoeing. They will also learn about teamwork through games, initiatives, and activities. FLASH is a time of exploration of leaders from the Bible. This is sure to be an epic week of fun, friendship, and fostering new confidence and skills.|
|Family Camp||All guests who visit Kintail will have similar activities offered to them, but Family Camp has extra emphasis on reliving a typical day as a camper with the whole family (FLASH, Chapel, Campfire, etc). You’ll love a weekend away OR family camp!|
|Weekend Away||Relax on the shores of Lake Huron while enjoying Kintails delicious catering during your stay! Parents will be responsible for children at all times and families will be able to try a variety of camp activities throughout your visit.|
|Craft Retreat||Bring your own craft supplies and enjoy the community atmosphere of Kintail while you find inspiration in nature and enjoy our comfortable accommodations and delicious food! Sew, scrapbook, or just nap and read by the fire!|
|Women’s Retreat||Enjoy time in nature and with other guests seeking fellowship and renewal at our spirituality-centered Women’s Retreat. Devotions and Kintail-led activities will be provided while everyone enjoys Kintails delicious meals and comfortable accommodations!|
|Day Camp||Day Campers will enjoy all of the same activities as our overnight campers! They’ll spend time every day at the beach and enjoy other sessions (FLASH, archery, arts and crafts, high challenge for ages 7+, slide, slingshot, etc.) all while spending plenty of time outdoors!
