2023 Yukon Sponsors
1. Where and What is Camp Engies?
TBD in Whitehorse!
2. How old are the campers?
The activities are geared towards girls in grades 5 through 8.
3. What is the staff to camper ratio?
There are 2 volunteer counsellors in every cabin of 8 - 10 campers (recommended ratio in Ontario is 1 counsellor to a maximum of 10 campers for this age group). There are additional volunteers and Camp staff who help facilitate activities. All volunteers have undergone a Vulnerable Sector Criminal Record Check.
4. What happens if it rains?
Camp Engies activities run as planned rain or shine. If there are severe storms, outdoor activities will be adapted for indoors. We recommend checking the weather forecast a few days before camp to pack accordingly.
5. My daughter needs medication, should we bring it to camp?
Please ensure your daughter brings all medication she regularly takes. Campers are permitted to keep certain medications (e.g. asthma inhalers, EPI-Pens) with them at all times. Other medications (e.g. antibiotics) should be given to staff when loading the bus for safekeeping. There is a refrigerator available at camp for medications.
6. Why can't you extend Camp Engies to a week or run it on multiple weekends?
We feel that this short time frame allows girls to acquire taste for overnight camps and engineering. We do not want them homesick! It is highly subsidized and thus we want to keep Camp Engies small and exclusive.
7. I have other questions!
Please email email@example.com! We look forward to 2023!
