2021 Camper Applications Terms & Conditions
Conditions of Enrolment, Cancellation & Refunds
Please ensure you have carefully read all enrollment agreement items below, including our procedures for cancellation and refunds.
The following shall apply to all enrollments and fees:
- The Taylor Statten Camps makes every effort to place campers in cabin/canoe trip groupings with the friends they request. The Camp considers cabin mate preferences (which should be mutual), in order to be taken into consideration. We ask for your cooperation and trust in our ability to place your child in a positive and cohesive cabin group. Annual progression through our camper sections is based on a complicated formula, at the full discretion of our Camp Directors, consisting of age of the camper, the age of other enrolled campers and overall enrollment, session length, and previous camp experience. TSC accepts campers between the ages of 6 & 17. There is no guarantee of a cabin placement, specified cabin mates, specified staff members, or placement in a particular camper section, regardless of any request you may make. We do not accept applications that are contingent on section or cabin grouping requests, unless such requests are made in compliance with TSC’s Long Canoe Trip Information & Application Policy. General cabin mate dis-requests will not be accepted (although if you wish for your child NOT to be placed with another camper please contact us for further assistance).
- The parents or guardians listed on the front of this application (referred to in this agreement as the parents) agree to pay the full fee by April 1, 2021 and to pay interest on all overdue fees at the rate of 24% per annum determined daily and calculated and payable monthly not in advance. Where interest is accrued on outstanding accounts, any sums paid to the Taylor Statten Camps will first be used to settle accrued interest owing before being allocated to outstanding invoiced amounts owing. For enrollments made after April 1, 2021, full fees must be paid at the time of enrollment.
- Any cancellation of enrolment must be in writing. Emails are accepted. The Camp reserves the right to cancel enrollment if fees are not paid in full by May 1, 2021. No refunds shall be made except strictly as follows:
Cancellations Originated by You
a) if the application is withdrawn by you before its acceptance or if enrolment is cancelled on or before March 31, 2021, the fee deposit less a $400 administration fee will be refunded;
b) if enrolment is cancelled by you on or after April 1, 2021 but on or before April 30, 2021, the fee deposit will not be refunded but all other fees then paid will be refunded; and
c) if enrolment is cancelled by you for any reason on after May 1, 2021, no amount will be refunded and any unpaid part of the full fee shall be payable.
d) no amounts will be refunded for the cancellation of late enrollments by you made on or after May 1, 2021.
e) in addition to the above cancellation terms and fees, deposits paid for Long Trip Fees are non-refundable at any time after a camper position on a Long Canoe Trip is confirmed by the Taylor Statten Camps. If your child is unsuccessful in securing a place on a Long Canoe Trip and you wish to cancel prior to acceptance of the Long Canoe Trip offered, the $400 administration fee is still payable. Application on this website is for a place at summer camp (which may include a Special Canoe Trip request).
f) credit card surcharge fees remain non-refundable at all times
Covid-19 Guarantee (Cancellations)
g) if the Taylor Statten Camps cancels your camper session or Long Trip in full prior to the scheduled start of your camper session or Long Canoe Trip due to government imposed regulations that would otherwise prevent the Taylor Statten Camps from operating (and is otherwise unable to accommodate you on another session or Long Canoe Trip that is acceptable to you), you will be provided with a full refund of all fees paid to date, less a $250 administration fee and any credit card surcharge fees paid PROVIDED THAT you have made all outstanding contractual payments due to the Taylor Statten Camps on a timely basis.
h) if your camper is prevented from travelling to Canada within 7 days or less from the start of the camper session or Long Trip that you registered for due to a government imposed restriction that would prevent your camper from travelling to Canada (including government mandated quarantine of more than 5 days), you will be provided with a full refund of all fees paid to date, less a $250 administration fee and any credit card surcharge fees paid PROVIDED THAT you have made all outstanding contractual payments due to the Taylor Statten Camps on a timely basis.
- Your camper’s enrolment may, at the parents’ request, be changed from a July session to an August session (or vice-versa), accommodations permitting, at any time upon payment of a $200.00 administration fee. If a Full Session enrolment is changed to the July or August session, or if the camper is re-enrolled after a previous cancellation, a $300.00 administration fee will be charged. For a reduction in enrollment from a one month to a two week session, or if the camper is re-enrolled after a previous cancellation, a $300 administration fee will be charged. For a reduction in enrollment from a two week session to a Try Out session, a $200 administration fee will be charged.
- No fee refund will be made for campers arriving late or leaving early, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, for any reason.
- No refunds will be given to campers who are sent home due to any violation of the Taylor Statten Camps Camper Code of Conduct or the Taylor Statten Camps Policies & Procedures or for any breach of provincial or federal law, or for any breach of these Terms & Conditions as determined by the Camp Directors, in their sole discretion.
- In the event of cancellation or reduction of enrolment for any reason the camp does not apply deposits or fees to siblings, or to subsequent years. The financial obligations of camp are fixed for the season and the withdrawal of a camper does not lessen operating expenses.
- These terms and conditions will apply to all fees paid by credit cards or other means regardless of whether future payments following the initial deposit are automatically collected by credit card or by other means at a later agreed date as set out on our website. Cancellation, dispute, and/or reversal of credit card payments does not constitute cancellation of your payment obligations under these terms and conditions.
Covid-19 Protocols, Canoe Trips and Vaccinations
- The Camp is committed to maintaining the confidence and trust of its campers and their parents. The Taylor Statten Camps is working closely with the Ontario Camping Association and local, provincial and federal government agencies to ensure your camper’s safety at camp and on canoe trip in regards to Covid-19 related protocols, and will provide regular and updated Covid-19 Health & Safety Compliance Policies and Procedures that relate to camper health and safety to all registered campers from time to time. The parent agrees to read the Taylor Statten Camp Guide and related Covid-19 Health & Safety Compliance Policies (distributed in the Spring) for full awareness and understanding of the rules and policies of camp and to review all applicable rules/policies with their camper.
- In the event a Covid-19 vaccination becomes available before the start of the camp session or Long Canoe Trip that you have registered for, the Taylor Statten Camps reserves the right to require all campers (and staff) to obtain a vaccination prior to arriving at camp, and to refuse admission (in its sole discretion) to any un-vaccinated camper.
- In the event the Taylor Statten Camps is required to cancel 2021 camper sessions due to Covid-19, it may still be possible to operate Long Canoe Trips in 2021, subject always to full compliance with Covid-19 related regulations. Should camper days at Ahmek and Wapomeo be limited or curtailed due to Covid-19, the Taylor Statten Camps may still operate some or all Long Canoe Trips at its discretion (again, subject always to full compliance with Covid-19 related regulations), and will reimburse you, on a discounted prorated basis at an daily amount to be determined by the Taylor Statten Camps in its sole discretion, for previously paid for full days not spent at Ahmek and Wapomeo, at the discretion of the Taylor Statten Camps. Long Canoe Trips that operate with amended or pro-rated days at Ahmek and Wapomeo will not be considered a cancellation of your camper’s session or Long Canoe Trip in accordance with these Terms & Conditions.
Medical Insurance & Fees
Medical Insurance, that includes Covid-19 coverage is mandatory for all campers attending our camps or canoe trips who are resident outside of the Province of Ontario. Medical coverage should include GP and outpatient care (which is usually outside the scope of most standard travel insurance policies). Canadian residents who reside OUTSIDE the province of Ontario should also check with their Provincial or Territorial Health provider that they are covered whilst in Ontario; if in any doubt it is highly recommended that Private Medical Insurance is purchased whilst your child(ren) is in Ontario. Notwithstanding your place of residency, your attention is drawn to our clauses below that deal with your responsibility to pay for trip evacuations and/or other medical fees.
Travel and Cancellation Insurance is also highly recommended for all campers, and in particular for those enrolled on one of our special canoe trips.
Camp fees are all inclusive (riding, most supplies for arts and crafts, laundry, etc.), except for transportation, special canoe trips, items purchased at tuck, sundry expenses, credit card surcharges (if paying by credit card) and sales taxes. These rates are for all campers including brothers and sisters. All fees are payable at par in Toronto in CANADIAN FUNDS on or before April 1, 2021. A Deposit Fee of $1500.00 for 2 week and 1 month sessions and $2500 for all other sessions must accompany each application. The deposit is considered non-refundable once confirmation of a place on any of our special canoe trips, or as indicated in these terms and conditions. The process for assigning special canoe trip requests will begin January/February 2021. Your attention is drawn to the TSC Long Canoe Trip Information & Application Policy, which form an essential part of these Terms & Conditions when applying for any Long Trip.
We are pleased to offer credit card payments through Visa and Mastercard, subject to a credit card surcharge of 2.5%. We also accept payment in Canadian funds drawn on a Canadian bank cheque, bank transfer or international money order. We do not accept foreign cheques. Do not send a non-Canadian cheque marked “PAYABLE IN CANADIAN FUNDS”, as it is not negotiable at any Canadian bank. If you are unable to pay using one of the aforementioned methods please contact our business office to discuss other options that may be available.
All camper applications will be considered on a first come, first serve basis, depending on the availability of space, however Special canoe trip requests will be considered in accordance with a variety of factors (such as pre-requisites, age, cabin group dynamics, etc) and not necessarily on a first come, first serve basis.
The parents acknowledge that camp takes place in Ontario, submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Ontario courts and agree that:
1. a) the Ontario courts shall have jurisdiction over any claim, legal dispute or cause of action arising out of camp, alleged breach of contract, or alleged negligence or other claim that leads to a legal proceeding against The Taylor Statten Camp Company Limited, its directors, officers or employees.
b) if any such legal proceedings are commenced, they will be commenced and heard only in Ontario; and
c) the resolution of all disputes and the provisions of this agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Ontario laws.
2. The parent agrees to update the camp of any camp/school issues, (suspension, discipline) or social, medical, emotional, or psychological issue that could affect his/her child or any other child, at least 2 weeks prior to their child’s arrival at camp. No refunds will be given to campers who are sent home due to a medical condition in which their continued stay at camp is deemed unsafe as determined by the Camp Directors, in their sole discretion.
3. The parents of the camper consent to the medical treatment of the camper by the camp doctor or any other medical doctor, as required in such doctor’s discretion, and agree to pay all hospital, prescription and over-the-counter drug charges/fees (including but not limited to emergency Epi-Pen usage and administration) and other medical fees and expenses incurred with respect to the camper and to reimburse The Taylor Statten Camp Company Limited promptly for any such fees and expenses paid by the camp (whether paid upfront by the camp or billed/paid at a later date) with respect to the camper. The parents further agree to pay all transportation charges to/from Canoe Lake and canoe trip evacuation fees from other remote locations to/from any hospital, doctor’s office, or clinic incurred by the camp (including but not limited to fees for an ambulance, sea plane, air ambulance, taxi, and/or camp vehicle).
5. The parents of the camper agree for and on behalf of themselves and the camper that any photographs taken of the camper by camp personnel or otherwise authorized by a camp director may be used by the camp without charge in promotional material, including brochures, slide shows, videos, social media and websites.
6. The person signing this contract has legal guardianship of the camper named and acts as custodial parent for the entirety of the camper session at the Taylor Statten Camps. Any custody issues or disputes advised to the Taylor Statten Camps by any legal parent or guardian of a camper will be dealt with ONLY under the laws of the Province of Ontario, and the Taylor Statten Camp Company Limited reserves the right to refer any custody issues of campers in its care to the Children’s Aid Society or other appropriate governmental agency. In this capacity, the person signing this contract is in agreement and is aware that the camper named is attending camp and this person has the legal authority to make decisions on behalf of both parents. All parents, siblings, heirs, executors, successors or assigns agree to read the terms of this contract and agree that unless they contact us in writing they are in agreement with the terms herein.

The parent agrees to read the Taylor Statten Camp Guide (distributed in the Spring) for full awareness and understanding of the rules and policies of camp and to review this handbook and all applicable rules/policies with the camper. The parent understands that items not permitted in camp will be confiscated, not returned to the camper, and (if applicable) destroyed.
9. The parent of the camper acknowledges that the Taylor Statten Camps (and associated canoe trips and facilities) is a rustic summer camp for children in the wilderness of Algonquin Park (and for canoe trips in other remote areas and parks). The Taylor Statten Camps is not a holiday resort; there is no electricity, heating, or air conditioning, or washroom facilities in accommodation cabins, and the camps operate a “back to basics” approach in every aspect of daily life at camp. Campers swim in lake water (not chlorinated pools), and learn to live in harmony with nature and their surroundings. Residence in Algonquin Park (and other parks and remote areas on canoe trip) is shared with wild animals, and campers are encouraged to respect and appreciate these animals. Mosquitoes and other insects are part of camp life. Make sure that your camper has enough non-aerosol bug repellent with them. Although laundry services are provided, all campers are required to regularly participate in cabin cleaning duties, and section cleanliness. At meal times, food is served family style in the dining halls, with the exception of canoe trip where campers often participate in the preparation of food over open fires in a rustic manner.
10. The swimming and canoeing activities at camp are mandatory for all campers. Participation in all other activities is voluntary although all campers are encouraged to participate in all activities. Session lengths and age will dictate the amount of times each camper participates in each camp activity; the Taylor Statten Camps does not guarantee an overall minimum number of visits to any particular activity. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, participation in canoe trip is mandatory for each camper. The duration and route of a canoe trip is dependent on the age and session length of each camper.
11. The Camp reserves the right to dismiss a camper from camp and send her or him home at the expense of the parents at any time without notice when it is deemed to be in the best interest of either the child or camp, the child has caused harm to him/herself or other campers or staff, the child is ill, or for violation of any camp rule, all as determined by camp in its sole and absolute discretion. No refunds will be provided. Parents shall reimburse the camp for any intentional damage or defacement of camp property. The cost of removing graffiti or fixing broken windows will be added to the camper’s tuck bill.
12. Any additional transportation including emergency canoe trip evacuations provided by the camp for any reason shall be paid for by the parents.
