The health and safety of our campers and staff ranks high on our list of priorities. That means we invest a lot of time and thought into the quality of the food we serve and how we accommodate dietary needs, as well medication management, and caring for campers who aren't feeling 100%.

Fresh & Local

We source as many of our menu items as locally as possible, from producers focused on responsible practices. This way, we support our local community and we eat healthier than most camps too! Our menu has so much variety that it will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

Allergy Aware

While our menu is extensive, we are cautious about the foods we provide and do our best to avoid many common food allergens. We are a nut-free camp and our chef is great about offering a wide array of options to suit all campers dietary needs.


Parents of campers with special diets are asked to inform us of their child’s nutritional needs. Not to worry ... any dietary information is requested on our mandatory parent forms so we don’t miss it! Even our Camp Director is gluten and dairy intolerant, so we’re no stranger to special diets.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask. We are happy to do everything we can to ensure your camper’s health and safety.


Safety is No Accident

Our Health Centre is equipped with all of the equipment and items we need to care for our campers who are not feeling 100%. The centre includes multiple spaces for campers who are under the weather to stay as long as they need. Parents will be notified by our medical staff if a camper needs to spend a night in the Health Centre, needs to visit a doctor or requires medicine.

Our Medical Director lives on-site and is always available at a moment’s notice. We also have a working relationship with the local hospital and emergency services, making emergency care just a phone call away. In addition to our Medical Director, everyone employed at Borealis A.C. is first aid trained and CPR certified.


We don’t take safety lightly. While we do everything we can to avoid accidents, we would be remiss to say they never happen. When they do, campers have skilled and trained staff to take care of them. In the unlikely event of a severe medical emergency, the camper will be transported to the North Hastings Hospital in Bancroft, Ontario, less than 15 minutes away, to be professionally treated.


Medication at Camp

All medications brought to camp must be in original containers and will be kept in the Health Centre (with the exception of inhalers, EpiPen's and prescription dermatological creams). Neither campers nor staff are allowed to keep any medication in their cabin, including vitamins and over-the-counter medicine.

All medication MUST be documented with the specified dosage on the Camper Health form. You will be asked to input this information during enrollment, and our Medical Director will confirm any dosage or prescription changes/additions upon arrival at camp.
