Safety First!

Camp Northway and Camp Wendigo are not peanut free
Please note that we have regular peanut butter in camp and on trip. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Staff Certifications

All Northway staff are required to have at minimum the Bronze Cross swim certification and CPR. Our Canoe Trip Guides have their Wilderness First Aid certification. Counsellors have Standard First Aid certification.

Water Safety

All Northway Staff and campers must wear a life jacket when on the water. Campers undergo a swim evaluation on their first day, so we can place them in the appropriate lesson group. Campers are required to check in and out of the water at all times for swimming and when using boats.

Fire Safety

Northway has a detailed Fire Safety program that is practiced on a regular basis every summer. We take fire safety very seriously.

Sun Awareness

All Northway staff are required to complete a Sun Aware Certification by the Melanoma Network of Canada. There are communal sun screen locations located at the front of camp for everyone to use in the morning and we promote frequent reapplication throughout the day.
