BE PREPARED!!!! Plan for three seasons! Take it from the old timers:  we have seen snow, a lot of rain,
   blistering heat, lots of pesky flies, and of course, the stormy winds; but we have had FUN!!!  Remember,
   this is Northern Ontario and expect the evenings to be cool/cold.

*  There will be a designated badge swap area.  Swapping etiquette will be followed.

Each group must arrive with two copies of the official health form and permission form for each camper.
    The photocopy will be given to the registration desk and the original will remain with the group's first aider.

*  Additional copies of the camp information and forms may be obtained by photocopying this package or
    printing from our web page.

Health & Safety:

 * Please ensure your group follows your Scouting/Guiding regulations as outlined in your policy manual.

* All groups must carry two copies official health form and permission form completed and available for each
   camper.  The photocopy is to be attached to the Health Form Summary and given to the camp registration
   desk.  Please ensure this information is prepared and ready before leaving for camp to avoid delays and
   long line ups at the registration desk.

*  Please report all injuries to our First Aid Headquarters.  Minor injuries should be handled by your group's
   First Aider.

*  First Aid Staff will be on site at all times.  The nearest Hospital is located about 30 minutes away in Timmins.

Off Site Activities:      (Not available to Pre-Jam participants)

There is a possibility that we will be able to provide three off site activities depending on the number of participants.  Each of these will cost extra for those involved.  To coordinate these activities, we need to know by April 15th how many people will be interested in participating.

The cost for out trips will be up to $15 per person.  Please advise us at the time of registration if your group is interested in an out trip.  Seating may be limited, so register early.
