what happens at camp kindle?


Upon arrival, buses will be welcomed by our programming staff, who will board the bus to greet the students, explain what’s going to happen and ride up with the students to the main village. At the main village, students will get off the bus and begin a luggage line to unload all bags and equipment.

Community Meeting

Once the buses have been unloaded, everyone will gather in the main lodge for a community meeting. At this time, we go over Camp Kindle’s three ‘Respects’ and discuss what we expect of the students. We also explain our emergency procedures and other need-to-know information.


After the community meeting, students will go for a tour of the area in order to familiarize themselves with their surroundings. Students will then put their luggage in their assigned rooms.


At meal times, we ask that all students line up outside of the main lodge in their teams. Teams will meet their meal host who will welcome the students inside to take off their shoes, wash their hands and take a seat. The meal host will facilitate a pre-meal thought and make announcements before sending students up to get food. The team on gopher duty (table set up), will go in 10 minutes ahead of meal time in order to set up tables and chairs for the other teams.
