How to Get to Camp:

This is our camp address: 19 Fire Route 69, Lakehurst, ON, K0L 1J0.

You can stay in touch with your child while at camp by sending us an e-mail to: info@tropinka.ca We will print and pass on your e-mail to the child. Given that children are with their groups at all times and they are not supposed to be apart from their group at any point – there is no opportunity for campers to use the camp phone to contact their parents.
If you give a cell phone to your child – they will be able to call you at night from their cabin, after 10:00 pm when they are in the cabin with their group. We do not recommend our campers to carry their cell phones with them throughout the day.

All Childrens camp Sessions start on Sunday at 4:00 pm and end on Saturday at 10:00 am. There is a one hour window to register your child at the start of each session between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm. Please make sure you come no later than 10:00 am to pick up your child. If your child is staying at camp for more than one session, they cannot stay at the property in between the two or more sessions.  Every child must go back home on Saturday at 10:00 am and come back to camp on Sunday at 4:00 pm.

Bus transportation is available to and from Toronto for each camp session.
