This camp orientation is valid for a period of five years, and your name will be kept on a data base at our Edmonton Area office for future reference. Cooks (kitchen staff) are required to have our orientation if you are renting Trefoil House. To sign up for this orientation please email Courtney at

The Hilltop House and Tent Sites have been winterized, meaning the water has been turned off at those locations! Water will need to be accessed at Trefoil House.
