We have some BIG news in here and other updates coming soon!
Dear Camp Northland Families,
 
Can you believe it's already March? Camp is coming just around the corner and we are excited to bring you up to date on all things Camp Northland. 
 
On January 31, 2016, we hosted our second ever Winter Camp up on beautiful Moose Lake. Our campers and staff had a blast in our Winter Wonderland. We walked and played in the snow on Moose Lake; We did A&C in the snow; We roasted marshmallows; We had a photo scavenger hunt; We made maple candy from scratch; and even danced the day away at our SNOcial (A social in the snow)! Thank you to all of our campers who attended, and to our incredible Winter Camp staff team who took the day off from studying and working to make this day so successful. Stay tuned for more upcoming event information!
 
Here's some other important and exciting information you need to know as we get closer and closer to Summer 2016:
 
Enrolment is looking better than ever for the upcoming summer. We are so thankful to all of our families, staff, and alumni who continue to spread the great stories of Camp Northland. You are doing a fantastic job! Some Sections and Units are approaching capacity. Therefore, for the first time in many years, we will be initiating a waiting list shortly. We are now offering a short window for guaranteed placement, in advance of the wait list process. Click here to register now. 
 
With our camper population exploding, we want to bring some additional staff into the mix. If you know someone who would like to consider working at the best summer camp ever, please have them visit our website and fill out our online staff application form. We are currently looking to fill the roles of General Counsellors, and some other specialty/activity area staff. For more information, please give us a call at 905-881-0018. 
 
Are you a Medical Doctor or Registered Nurse looking for an opportunity to contribute back to camp in a fun way? We are looking to fill one week to seven week visits in our calendar. If this is something that would interest you, please contact Simon directly at 905-881-0018.
 
We are very excited to announce that our new ONLINE Camp Northland Tuck Shop is under construction! You will soon be able to buy a brand new selection of Camp Northland clothing and SWAG straight from our website. We look forward to updating you very soon on when our online shop will be open to the public.

These gift certificates can be used for anything at Camp Northland, from camp clothing and SWAG, Tuck Shop items, and even camp fees! Give us a call at the office for more information.
