Welcome to Our Parents' Section
Things to know
1Sunday registration is from 3:30-5:30pm in the Dining Hall. Saturday morning check-out is from 9:00-11:00am in the Dining Hall.
2All campers will return home on Saturday morning. If campers are staying for two consecutive weeks, they will go home for the weekend and return on Sunday afternoon, whether by bus or with a family member. This break will allow campers to rest after a busy week, spend time with their family, and get ready for their next week of camp.
3We provide bus transportation to and from camp every week from the West Island of Montreal (St-Hubert BBQ - 2939 Boul. St-Charles, Kirkland QC). For more information about our bus, and to register for a spot, please visit our Transportation page.
4Many families enjoy leaving small care packages for their children to open during their stay at camp. Families are welcome to leave mail with our staff at registration. We require that families label all mail with their child’s full name, and day they wish for the package/envelope to be delivered.
5Families who wish to speak to their child throughout the week are required to send their child with a calling card. Campers are permitted to use their calling card to call home on our camp payphone during their free time.
Health & Safety
The safety of your child at Frontier Lodge is the number one priority. There are several programs in place to ensure that not only will your child have a great camp experience but also remain safe. Initially, potential staff are screened via application, references, and a criminal background check. Secondly, our staff are required to take a week training course prior to the camp season. This course ensures our staff know what proper conduct between staff and campers look like. It also details the proper procedures and protocols when dealing with children and youth in sensitive situations. Third, new counselors begin their first year with us under a senior counselor. Most of our senior counselors have graduated from the junior counselor position. At every chapel, activity, meal, and wide game, campers are accounted for by their counselor. Lastly, every morning at our meeting we discuss how the campers are adapting ranging from friends, behavior, eating habits, washing, and sickness. It is our desire for every camper to remain safe and engaged in the program so as to have the best week possible.
We have a fully stocked infirmary on site with a registered nurse available at any time to the campers and staff. During registration you will be required to give the camp nurse a "health update" on the camper(s) you are registering. All medications brought by campers, either prescription or over- the-counter drugs, must be turned over to the nurse at that time. They will be kept locked and secured in the infirmary. We will also do a head lice check at registration. In the event of an emergency, there is a hospital nearby.
Our menu follows Canada’s Food Guide, ensuring well balanced, nutritious meals. Campers gather with their cabin groups in the dining hall for meals three times daily (twice for Day Camp). All meals are served buffet style and are prepared and served by our cooking staff following Food Safe practices. We are a nut aware camp but are unable to guarantee a nut free camp due to the amount of people/campers that come on site.

I’ve been privileged to work at Frontier lodge for over 3 summers now. A part of me has always felt as though this place was Home. It still is. Over many summers I’ve met amazing people who have walked through the camp ground with me. I’ve gained the confidence to be myself and have acknowledged my ability to lead something that I never wanted to admit to myself. I grew closer to God each summer as my fellow staff members taught me more about him by simply being themselves. The glory of God’s love shined through their eyes as they worshipped and as they served. Of course, it wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine, we all needed to put in the work. Some nights I walked into my cabin wondering why the Lord sent me here. But each year I came right back. I think it’s because I hear stories of children I’ve helped, friends I’ve made and mentors I’ve looked up to that keeps me looking upwards towards God. This experience is something I wouldn’t trade for the world. Even the nights that I couldn’t see the stars in the skies were filled with the smiles of the kids in my cabin. And that’s really all I could ask for.

I love Frontier Lodge so much because there are fun activities and there are wonderful people and counselors. It’s a fun place to learn about God and His creation!

I began going to Frontier Lodge with my father at around the age of four or five and I immediately fell in love with camp. Just the concept of stepping out of technology’s grasp and spending a week or two at camp always appealed to me. The friends I’ve made, the countless stories I’ve told of camp, the connection to God and the fantastic service has changed my life and I would not be where I am now in knowledge, love and friendship without camp. Frontier Lodge is always gonna hold a special place in my heart and I hope to serve there for as long as I can.
