    What the Camper Should Know Before Arriving

    Behavioural Expectations

    Campers are expected to treat one another respectfully, without put downs or rough horse play. Medeba strives to resolve behavioural problems with campers promptly and effectively but reserves the right to dismiss a camper for behavioural problems at the discretion of the Directors. No refund will be made for dismissals due to disciplinary action. Parents will be responsible for the removal of the camper due to dismissal.

    Medeba is a smoke, alcohol, and drug free facility. Tobacco, alcohol, cannabis and illicit drug possession or use is prohibited for everyone.

    Medeba does not permit gum-chewing on property.

    Cell Phones, Personal Music Players, Tablets, Laptops, and Gaming Devices

    Medeba desires to develop a healthy camper community. Personal devices take away from a camper fully immersing in our community and therefore the above-mentioned devices are not permitted.

    Communication from Home

    By Mail

    Campers look forward to receiving mail and we encourage parents and relatives to send letters. Due to our location, it may take more than a week for us to receive mail. We recommend sending any letters the week before they are due to arrive. Please do not send anything through the mail that may contain, contains, or is a nut product. These are delivered at dinner time.

    Address camper mail to
        (full name of camper),
        Medeba Summer Camp
        West Guilford, ON
        K0M 2S0

    By Email

    You may email your camper care of the Medeba office. Our e-mail address is: info@medeba.com (Please type the campers full name on the "subject" line). We will print these off before dinner (5:30pm) and deliver them during dinner. A 50¢ charge will be placed against their tuck account for each incoming e-mail. Campers are unable to e-mail back. 

    By Phone

    Campers do not normally have access to the phone. We would encourage you not to call them unless it is an emergency. If you would like to know how your child is doing, we ask that you call and talk to their cabin leader. The number to reach them at is 1-705-754-2444, ext. 231; please call during meal times (8:15am, 12:30pm, 5:30pm)

    Heath Care and Special Dietary Needs

    Health Care

    Health and safety are always emphasized!


    You will have completed a Camper Health Form on your my.medeba account. If there are any changes to the camper's medical condition after you complete these forms, please log back into your my.medeba account and update your forms.


    All medications must be handed in on registration day. Campers may not keep any medications in the cabin. This includes vitamins and supplements.

    The medications/vitamins/supplements MUST BE BROUGHT TO CAMP IN THE ORIGINAL PHARMACY CONTAINER.


    Parents are to provide medical insurance and are responsible for any cost incurred not covered by insurance. (For example, certain medications)

    Head Lice

    For the protection of our campers and staff, lice checks are performed at the beginning of each week. Please check your children in advance of coming to Medeba and treat if necessary. Please inform us if they have received treatment just prior to arriving at camp. Any campers found with head lice will be treated for a fee of $250, or the camper will be removed from camp. Contact the office for more information on the head lice treatment we perform.

    On-Site Care

    Medeba has a certified First Aid Health Care Co-ordinator on site to provide basic health care to campers and staff.


    In the event of an emergency, we access our local medical clinic and hospital only 10-15 minutes away in the town of Haliburton.

    Risk Management of Illness while at Medeba

    2. Encouraging campers and staff to practice good hand hygiene
    3. Staff and campers will be screening themselves regularly for symptoms of communicable illnesses
