What price do I choose?

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.

 

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.

  • Credit Card: Set up a pending payment with your credit card and it will be automatically charged a few days before your camp session begins. If you missed this step, give us a call and we will help you get it set up!

  • EFT: The week before your camp, send an e-transfer to grow@campkintail.ca with the password set to kintail (all lowercase)

  • Cash or cheque: Bring cash or cheque when you arrive or mail cheques to 85153 Bluewater Highway, RR3 Goderich Ontario, N7A 3X9 with the name of your camper written in the memo line.

Day Camp

Day Camp

Choose the day camp session that suits you this summer then join us for fun-filled days spent here at Camp Kintail. Campers swim, canoe, make crafts, and learn about their faith in their own cabin group. A hot and tasty catered lunch will be provided everyday and campers will have the opportunity to grab fruit from our snack bar throughout the day for an extra snack! Drop off is 9:00AM – 9:30AM and pick up is 4:30PM – 5:00PM with these camps running from Monday to Friday. Start every day with a smile from staff as you arrive and bring home memories to share at the end of each day!

DAY CAMP BUS:
A bus from Goderich to Camp Kintail for day campers will be available for the following weeks:
K2 - July 8-12
K4 - July 22-26
K7 - August 6-9
K10 - August 26-30

The bus will leave from Knox Goderich Church, Newgate Street Parking Lot at 8:45am. Campers can then be picked up from the same parking lot at 5pm. There will be a Kintail staff member to sign-in campers and ride the bus to and from camp with them.

Overnight Camp

DISCOVERY
Looking for some adventure this summer? Then Discovery Camp is perfect for you! A fun filled week of exploration, cabin bonding, and sunny days on the shores of Lake Huron. Create memories everywhere – whether you’re soaring the skies at our High Challenge Course or creating the perfect craft to bring home. End each day with a campfire before going back to your cabin to rest.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE
Our other overnight camp program is Outdoor Adventure! This camp is perfect for campers who love the outdoors! Outdoor Adventure Camp offers the chance to have fun while learning new outdoor skills. Part of the excitement is having 2 of their 3 daily meals outside at their campfire with fellow campers and staff! One meal is takeout from the dining hall and enjoyed at the outdoor adventure unit area, one meal is cooked at the campfire at their unit area, and one meal is eaten at the MacDonald Lodge dining hall. From shelter-building to nature hikes and participating in classic camp activities such as archery and kayaking – your camper is sure to enjoy their week at camp!

Overnight camps run from Sunday afternoon to Friday afternoon. Register today for an unforgettable week at Kintail!

Sprouts & Try-Out Camp

This three day camp is a wonderful introduction to camp life. Campers fill their days with crafts, nature activities, swimming, games, Bible stories, and campfire songs. Each child is busy all day long and goes to bed happy and tired. This is a ‘Try-Out” camp, meaning that we introduce campers to a shortened version of the camp week. Campers will attempt as many of the camp activities as the schedule permits within their two full days at camp. Drop off and pick-up for this camp will be specified closer to the date.

Volunteers Of Kintail (VOK)

Work towards your academic volunteer service hours while still creating fun summer memories with us at Camp Kintail! While some of the day is dedicated to work projects – such as site maintenance on the hiking trail or adding new stones along a pathway to help with erosion, the other portion of the day is spent in classic camp activities such as high ropes and waterfront! These camps run from Sunday afternoon to Friday afternoon. What’s the best part? These volunteer weeks offer participants the chance to receive 20 service hours, help improve the site, all while still participating in classic camp activities. Who said you can’t have fun while you work?

Family Camp

Come and enjoy the fun, fellowship, great food, and special events that make Family Camp a great holiday for the whole family! Staff offer traditional camp activity programming for the children, special sessions for the adults, and family activities. Families are welcome to participate in as much or as little as they wish. Come be a part of this great Kintail tradition!

In the mornings, Camp Kintail’s staff lead the children in a variety of camp activities including watercraft, high challenge course, arts & crafts, FLASH, and more! During this time, adults are welcome to attend adult only sessions. In the afternoon, activities are offered for the whole family to enjoy together. During the evenings we offer exclusive adult time in the lodge while our staff will be available to look after your campers. On Sunday morning, we worship together in the beautiful outdoor Chapel. On Sunday evening, the famous “Kintail Players” talent show is a highlight of the weekend; come with an act in mind or a performance to share with the rest of camp. Your family will receive an email before camp starts to share what this year’s theme will be so that you can bring dress up clothes. We hope to have your family join in the fun at camp this summer!

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.

Leader In Training (LIT)

Leaders in Training come to Kintail for two weeks of the summer to live in community. The groups live in the Nest and are with their LIT Resources Counsellors throughout their time here. The group spends their time in sessions on leadership, communication, creative counselling and more, on adventures, and creating memories. LITs are then welcome to return to camp to volunteer in cabin or as support staff and spend their time practicing what they learned during their sessions and experiencing some first-hand learning from the Kintail Staff. LITs are able to stay the weekend if they are participating in the next week's cabin session, if not they must go home at the close of the session.

Throughout their time in cabins or working with the support staff, the LITs will participate in check-ins and sessions with other LITs. They will lead a FLASH (Faith, Learning, and Sharing) session, run a campfire, prepare morning Chapel, lead a morning activity, and assist the cabin counselors. Every LIT is guaranteed two weeks of cabin.support experience and additional weeks may be possible.

  • Have a camper who is 9 turning 10? Or 4 turning 5? Here's what to know.
    Campers who are 9 turning 10 can choose between the Jr. programs (7-10) or the Int. programs (10-14). Cabins are sorted by age to the best of our abilities, but depending on the registrations that week they may be in a cabin with children who are older or younger than them. You know your camper best and we leave it to you to decide which age/ session is best for them! The software will allow you to register for either Jr. or Int. programs. If your camper is coming with a friend, be extra careful to enroll in the same session! Children who are 4 turning 5 may register for our Day Camp program if they have completed a full year of kindergarten, need no assistance in the washroom, and can change for the beach by themselves. We do not recommend children who are 4 turning 5 enroll for our overnight Sprouts program. The software will allow you to register for Day Camp.
  • My camper turns 16 this year, can they be an LIT?
    Youth who are 15 turning 16 are able to participate in the Leader in Training program. This program is special as it is only available for youth who will be able to join the Kintail staff team the next year. 15 year olds can participate in the Pre-LIT program.
