Introducing….Mustang Mayhem!

"MEET THE COUNSELLORS" EVENT

If your child starts camp on July 3rd, 2012 or July 9th, 2012 then please join us at camp on Sunday, June 24th from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. for our pre-summer Open House. This will be a great opportunity for your campers to meet their counsellors, head staff team and all of the other great staff they will be sharing their summer with. For campers starting at any other time throughout the summer, we invite you to come up to look around the camp and meet the staff.

CAMP CLOTHING AND LABELS!

Order your 2012 Camp Clothing before the summer is here as we have a limited supply and always sell out! You can order it by visitng our online order form here!Don’t forget to also purchase labels to reduce the amount of lost & found at camp. The best way to get your lost clothing returned is to label it!

PEANUT & OTHER LIFE THREATENING ALLERGIES

Our policy with respect to keeping our campers that have life threatening allergies safe is drawn from Anaphylaxis Canada’s resources for camps.

We are appealing to the camp community to keep peanut butter and other peanut/nut products out of the camp. Parents must never send to camp food to share with other children. Canadian food products must include allergy caution notes. If the product says “May contain nuts, peanuts, tree nutes” it is NOT allowed at camp. If a Canadian-made product does not have a caution note on the nutrition information, it is safe. (International foods do not have the same nutrition fact laws and therefore may not be safe. Read the ingredients to be certain.)

Riverwood is a “nut safe/nut aware” camp. Riverwood is not a ‘Nut Free’ camp. We simply cannot have absolute control over the contents of lunches and snacks that are brought to camp each day. Looking out for everyone’s interests, our staff receive training on how to recognize anaphylactic symptoms and are Epi-Pen trained. We do our best to ensure a very safe and accommodating environment for those staff and campers with anaphylaxis.
