Frequently Asked Questions 


Cabin assignments are made with consideration given to a camper’s age, size and development. Friends who come to camp together may request to be placed in the same cabin on their pre-registration form. Due to space limitations however, we may not be able to accomodate all such requests.


Since mail is sometimes slow, we recommend that you write early in the week, or if you want your camper to have a letter on arrival, mail it the week before camp. Let grandparents and friends know to write early too.

The mailing address during camp season only is:
500 Tay Valley Road
Taymouth, NB, Canada
E6C 2H1

We feel strongly about you writing your kids while they are at camp and it means the world to them when they hear from you. If you would like, you can leave your camper a letter on the opening day of their session. Please keep all communications to your campers by mail only. We are not set up to accept letters by e-mail or fax.

We have 3 girl's cabins and 2 boy's cabins, each outfitted with bunks. Each cabin is enclosed and sleeps 8-10 campers and 2 counselors.

We use and suggest the King James Bible.

Don’t worry, mom, we serve three nutritionally balanced meals a day. There is always plenty available. 

Campers will be given the opportunity to purchase candy, chips, pop, and more at the Snack Shack twice daily on a credit system. To set up a credit, you must deposit an amount of your choice ($15 is plenty) into the camper's Snack Shack account upon arrival on the opening day of their session. Any unused portion will be refunded on closing day. Please don’t allow your child to bring any cash to hold onto during camp.

Let us assure you that we take homesickness seriously, and we are well equipped to handle it. Our counselors are trained and know when to alert the Camp Directors. After lots of experience, we’ve learned the following: 
that by watching for early signs, homesickness is usually avoidable; that once parents are out of sight, counselors and other campers come into a child’s focus and the fun starts; and that parents are usually more uneasy about leaving their children than children are in leaving their parents. If a problem persists, we will contact the parents. Should you choose to remove your child from camp due to homesickness, please understand that you will not receive a refund.

Telephone calls from parents or friends are limited to an emergency. Please feel free to call the Camp Directors if you need to discuss
something relating to your camper. Campers are not allowed to use the phone during their stay at Tay Valley except for emergencies. It is our experience that talking to your child while away from home can be very disruptive. For any child prone to homesickness it usually intensifies it and the results are hard on the camper, parents and staff alike. We encourage parents to call camp to check in on the well being of their child at any time. Parents, relatives, and friends are requested to limit visitation to camp during the opening and closing days only.

The Directors reserve the right to dismiss any camper whose influence and conduct becomes detrimental to the best interests of the program. No refunds will be made for dismissed campers or withdrawals. Any forfeiture of deposits or fees will be put in our Camper Sponsorship fund.
