Depart by Plane

  • Departures by plane

    Campers departing by plane will take the bus from camp, to the Pearson International Airport in Toronto (YYZ).

    Campers should be booked on the first flight home AFTER 2pm (Toronto time) at Pearson International Airport on Thursday, July 27 or Thursday, August 24.  If a flight is missed, or cannot be booked until the following day, campers can once again stay in the hotel with our staff escorts, and the cost will be billed to you.

    Upon registration, each camper taking the airport bus will be charged an “International Camper Deposit” of $500.  Following hotel, food, meeting room and management costs, any unused amount will be refunded.

    Please complete the Airport Form found on the registration account. You can log in here. For all campers arriving by plane and send it in to info@taylorstattencamps.com. If your camper is flying as an unaccompanied minor, please contact the Business Office as soon as possible. Please return this form by May 15th, 2017 to ensure you camper has space on the bus.

    Please DO NOT send return home plane tickets to campers at camp. All tickets, passports, etc., must be managed by administration at the Taylor Statten Camps to ensure nothing is lost. If a camper arrives at Camp with tickets for the trip home, the tickets – along with his or her passport – will be collected and then given back to each camper at the appropriate time. Please advise your camper of this procedure.  In addition, please let the Camp Business Office know if your child is traveling home using a paperless electronic ticket.  This will help us facilitate a smooth return home.

Driving Directions

We ask that campers not be driven directly into or out of camp. All drop-offs and pickups will take place at the Canoe Lake Portage Store. Parents of Wapomeo campers will not be able to visit the island, on the first day of camp. All Wapomeo Campers: Please have life jacket easily accessible for pontoon boat ride for the younger campers and a War Canoe paddle for older campers.
