  • Please impress upon your group members the importance of showing respect to our guests, staff, facilities and equipment. Damages due to abuse or misuse will be billed to the guest group.
  • If a student is sick, do not bring them to camp. Schools/groups are responsible for the health of their students while at camp.
  • Teachers/leader/VIP accommodations are shared occupancy and may include bunk-style beds. Unfortunately, Muskoka Woods cannot assign individual rooms to teachers/leaders/VIPs. Nothing is to be removed or moved between rooms/cabins (e.g. bedding, towels, blankets, appliances). If you require any bedding or towels for your students due to an emergency while on site, please contact our office and we will do our best to assist you.
  • Fire safety: Muskoka Lakes Fire requires we maintain an active roster indicating where everyone on the property lives/sleeps. Therefore, all group leaders/teachers are required to provide a master list of guest names indicating which accommodation each guest is staying in. We collect this list on behalf of Muskoka Lakes Fire. Leaders are expected to retain a copy for themselves and use it in the case of an emergency to account for all their guests. Any changes to the roster require an immediate reprint. No candles are allowed at any time.
  • Signs and posters are not allowed to be taped, tacked or affixed in any way to any building walls, windows or doors.
  • Pets are not to be brought to Muskoka Woods. If someone requires a service animal Muskoka Woods reserves the right to request a doctor’s note.
