    Tuck happens twice-a-day. Once in the afternoon and once in the evening before chapel. Each camper will have a selection of items to choose from in different categories.

  • What happens if my child gets hurt?

    Every summer Camp Widjiitiwin hires a camp medic. This person is a nursing student having finished their first or second year. In addition, we have access to a paramedic on the MBC grounds who is on call 24/7. You would be notified as soon as possible if a call was placed to the paramedic or 911.
  • Can I come visit my child while they are at camp?

    No, this can cause homesickness with your child or other campers who will then want to see their parents.
  • Can I call my child while they are at camp?

    This is strongly discouraged as it can lead to homesickness, but we understand that there may be traumatic events that your child needs to know about while at camp. Please inform the camp director in advance of this call so that we can be prepared to assist you and the camper through the situation.
  • When can I come visit my SALT camper while they are at camp?

    You are welcome to come on any of the Sundays during the opening day registration times while your child is attending SALT. Please call ahead to see what the SALTers are doing to ensure your SALTer will be available when you plan to come.
  • Can I write my child letters, email or fax them?

    Yes. If you write letters and bring them with you, you can leave them with the registrars when you drop them off on Sunday and the letters will be delivered to them in the week.  Mark the day in the corner if you have specific days that you would like them to be delivered. Send mail with your camper’s name clearly on the letter or parcel can be sent to:

    Camp Widjiitiwin, Box 10020, Huntsville, ON P1H 2K1

    Fax to 705-789-6668 or email to campers@mycamp.ca You should be aware that if your child receives multiple pieces of mail or a large package, that they may have to sing or act for it as a camp tradition. Of course, we encourage you to do this!

  • What does my child need to bring and what can’t they bring?

    The what to bring to camp list is on the parents page of the Widjiitiwin website.
  • Can my child be in the same cabin as a friend that is younger?

    Cabins are usually done by same age or grade. Depending on the age difference and the number of campers that week will also determine if we can honour this type of request. Requests are not guaranteed. We encourage people to arrange for both campers to request a cabin together to ensure that the feelings are mutual.
