CHECK-IN TIME: is between 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm on SUNDAY afternoon. Please do not arrive
before 1:00 pm as the staff does not return until noon and we need that time to get ready to
receive your daughter(s). The first riding evaluation starts at 3:00 pm.
SWEAT SHIRTS, T-SHIRTS, JACKETS, HATS ETC.: printed with the Saddlewood logo will be
available for sale on closing days.
VISITING DAYS: There are no set visiting days at Saddlewood. Campers staying for two or
more sessions may have their parents visit at the end of each two-week session.
TELEPHONE: Parents are requested NOT to phone unless it is truly urgent. We cannot call
a girl to the telephone and we do not allow campers to call out. The office telephone is
answered at most times or you may leave a message on the machine. The number is
ELECTRONICS: Please do not send electronics to camp with your daughter. Camp
is an opportunity to unplug and interact with the camp community. Personal fans,
snacks and treats may be brought to camp. Campers are encouraged to leave their cell phones
at home. Any cell phone brought to camp must have the SIM card removed.
LETTERS: should be mailed before your child leaves for camp or during the first few days as
it takes almost a week for mail to get to Bethany. Upon arrival you may drop off mail at the camp
office to be handed out during the session.
FAXING YOUR DAUGHTER: Many parents find it convenient to send a fax to their daughter(s)
at 705-277-9335. Our office tries to deal efficiently with these faxes but please:
- Use Faxes only when necessary (letters and postcards are appreciated much more)
Limit your fax to one page. (Remember we have over 70 campers + staff / session)
Do not use a cover page - put your daughter’s full name and cabin # on the top of fax
Remember that all faxes and mail are given out at lunchtime only each day.
SPENDING MONEY: A small amount of spending money may be brought to camp. It should
be given to your daughter’s counsellor on arrival for safekeeping. Saddlewood tuck shop is
open every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Approximately $20.00 / session is enough to
cover tuck shop.
RIDING CLOTHING: It is not necessary to have proper riding breeches. Spandex or cotton
legging are acceptable. Riding helmets must be worn and meet the current equipment
standards. ASTM, BSI or the European Safety Standards are required. Hard soled footwear
with a heel of no less than 1.5 cm are also required.
THE RIDING DEMONSTRATION: is from 12:30 pm sharp until about 2:30 pm on the
SATURDAY that your daughter is to come home from camp. Many parents bring a picnic on
this day and eat at our picnic tables in order to be here on time. REMEMBER - PICKUP TIME IS
ON SATURDAY NOT SUNDAY.
