Great question! Here is a suggested family camper packing list; camper first aid kit; leadership camp packing list

What does a cabin look like inside?

Our cabins are very rustic and sparse. There are wooden bunks, wood walls and a light switch. There is so much happening at camp we don’t spend much time in our cabins except to sleep.

How can I rent Red Pine Camp for my special event?

Red Pine Camp is open for rentals in the month of September as our cabins are not winterized. You may complete an online request form or review our camp rental guide. Further questions can be directed to: redpinerentals@gmail.com

When does the Summer booking request window open?

February first for Shareholders and returning campers. March first for new and campers who have taken a hiatus for a few years.

Can I request a booking for my friends and family too?

Please have a primary adult member from each family unit create their own family profile and booking request. This simplifies the booking procedure and allows for online waiver approval.

How do I make a booking request?

Please log into our online registration site If this is your first visit, please create a profile for yourself, and then one for your spouse, partner and dependent family members. Then you may place a booking request in the week you wish to attend.

What types of payment do you accept?

Red Pine Camp accepts Cheque, Cash, E-transfer and Online Bill Payment.  Feel free to pay your balance of camp fees prior to your arrival to speed up check in time.  When the office moves up to camp, we also have access to a debit machine.  Ensure your daily limit is updated before your arrival.

When is my deposit and final payment due?

Deposits are only requested AFTER you have been assigned a cabin, and then are due upon receipt of the cabin allocation email. Final payments are due 1 month prior to your arrival at camp.

What if I have to cancel my booking?

Oh darn! Sometimes life happens. Please log into your booking, click cancel and write a short reason. The office will process the cancellation and refund any deposits that would be owing. Log into my booking to cancel.  Our Cancellation Policy can be found on this page.

What are my chances if I am on the waitlist?

Sometimes the waitlists move slow and sometimes they move fast. We suggest that you plan for your hopeful week as your holiday, so that if we have a cancellation at the last moment you will be available. If you make other plans, that’s OK, please cancel your name off the waitlist to move others up the que.

Can you accommodate special diets?

While we are unable to satisfy personal diet preferences, we can make accommodations for some dietary restrictions that are medically necessary. Our kitchen can prepare meals for campers with gluten allergies or Celiac Disease. We can also supply Lactaid and soya milk for those with lactose intolerance but we cannot prepare lactose free meals. And while we cannot provide vegetarian meals, our menu does include vegetarian choices at every meal including the salad bar.

How do I make a donation?

You may log onto our registration website and create a donation pledge. Then, the payment can be sent to the Ottawa office via cheque, e-transfer or online bill payment. Red Pine Camp is a for profit company and can not create tax receipts for donations.

I’m a shareholder, how do I transfer my share?

A shareholder would complete the back side of a share certificate with the name and information of the person they are transferring the share to. You would then send in the certificate, a cover letter with any special instructions and the new shareholders address, phone, email etc. and a cheque for $28.25 as a processing fee. The office will process the transfer and send out the new certificate and paperwork.

I’m not a shareholder, how do I find a share?

Most new shareholders find someone willing to transfer their share while up at camp. Some have found connections on the camp Facebook page and others have found a share through camping friends. The office is unable to match up individuals who wish to have a share.
