If you encounter any situation where you find yourself uncomfortable with another's words or actions, please address the person directly: Individuals are encouraged to stand up for their right to have their feelings protected and to clearly state their feelings to the harasser whenever possible.  If you require support, please report to the Camp Director. The Unicamp Anti-Harassment policy (found online or at Admin) and procedure will be strictly enforced by Unicamp staff.   

Dining Hall: Dining Hall is closed during the 2020 season.        

Ice Packs: We provide an icepack service to those camping; enquire at Admin if you require any. The ice pack freezers will be on and available for use, wash hands with soap and water or use the hand sanitizer provided prior to touching the freezer or ice packs. Donations to support this service are gratefully accepted at Admin or as you make your reservation.     

Firewood: When fire bans are not in effect, wood for campfires is available. Financial donations are accepted as you make your reservations, and at our Admin office at $5 for each armload/bundle. There are two locations to acquire wood:  by the main Fire Pit and at the bottom of the mini common by the dorms.     Fire wood used at main Fire pit is free. It builds community.    

Lost and Found is located within the Old Admin trailer. If you have left something behind at Unicamp,  contact us as soon as possible by calling (519) 925-6432 or e-mailing bookings@unicampofontario.ca including a description of your lost item. Lost items may be held until your return, or we can make arrangements to have them returned to you.   

Fire Safety: All campfires must be attended.  Ensure campfires are “dead out” before leaving them. Any unsupervised campfires will be put out by Unicamp staff, promptly. Fire safety is everyone's responsibility.
Water Safety:   All persons who use the docks, pond, rafts and / or elevated platform, including campers, seasonal campers, staff, and event renters must obey the Water Safety requirements. Failure to comply may mean you are not allowed to swim during your stay at Unicamp, at the discretion of the Camp Director. A full version of the Waterfront Rules is available online or at Admin. 

Unicamp does not provide lifeguards on site, with the exception of specific children's camp programs.  You are responsible for your safety and the safety of your children. 

All children 16 years and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult, when on the beach or swimming in the pond.     

It is highly recommended that you always swim with a buddy, and stay within arm's length of one another. 

At the elevated platform structure, at any one time, there must be no more than a maximum of 4 people permitted (1 on the ladder and 3 on the top). Swimmers must jump off the platform from the one side facing the main body of the pond and must enter the water feet-first. 

No more than a maximum of 8 people are allowed on a dock, or on a raft, at any one time.

Each person must wear a Life Jacket while using rafts, canoes and other boats. 

Unicamp requires at least one rider to be 16 years or older when using any watercraft  (canoes, boats, paddle boards, and pedal boats)--with the exception of watercraft made specifically for small children.  

Canoes and other boats are to be boarded at the docks or shore.  No boarding or disembarking in the pond or on the rafts. Do not dock boats/canoes at Bob's Beach.   
Wildlife: Our 7th UU Principle asks to respect the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Fishing is not allowed in Unicamp's pond or streams, (including catch and release). Please leave our abundant wildlife on their own. Pond animals are especially harmed by the natural oils on our hands; so do not handle frogs, turtles, or other creatures. Please ensure that your children do not touch wildlife. While at Unicamp, do not feed any wildlife, because that interferes with their natural ways and their ability to live independently. We ask that you ensure food and scented items such as bug spray and sunblock be stored away, in an effort to deter wildlife from visiting campsites.   

Service Animals: Those with service animals are welcome to public spaces within Unicamp. The animal must be identified in one of two ways: wearing an identifying vest, or documentation from a regulated health professional confirming that the owner requires the animal for reasons relating to a disability. Service dogs must be kept on their leash/harness and under the full control of their user/owner at all times. Campers are encouraged to alert the Camp Director of their situation before their arrival at Unicamp. Note: Service Animals are never allowed in the kitchen at Unicamp, due to health regulations. 

Dogs: We welcome campers' canine friends during     specific Dog-Welcome dates.  We welcome our dog-owning campers to bring their pets during the specified Dog-Friendly days. This year, the permitted dates are August 8 - 14 and October 10 - 12. (See the Unicamp Program Calendar or website for dates) We ask that those bringing dogs be mindful of their canine friends at Unicamp and respect these designated dates and the conduct policy. 

We acknowledge Unicamp's natural ecosystem—our interdependent web of life—and we respect the Bruce Trail Conservancy regulation in its hikers' code of conduct, and Mulmur Township by-law 11-02 which indicate that dogs must be on-leash at all times on camp property, including the pond. Dogs must be kept back from people who do not wish to interact with them: please do not approach any other campers unless they have communicated they are comfortable with close proximity to dogs. This may be difficult at campfires and at the beach, as smaller spaces; dog owners are asked to make a reasonable effort to respect those around them. 

Please keep your dog away from other dogs that may interact aggressively with yours; wait for consent before approaching other dogs. 

Excessive barking disturbs everyone at camp and drives away wildlife; if your dogs bark when you leave them alone, then someone must stay with them at all times. Continued disturbance will be handled as per the Camp Director’s discretion.

Dogs are never permitted on Cowpye Hill, which is not part of Unicamp but is our neighbour’s ranch property. The Unicamp Program Center and Dining Hall and deck are off limits to all animals at all times, with the exception of service animals . Owners must carry bags to scoop up after their dogs (on any part of Unicamp property, even in the woods), and dispose of the bags in the container marked for that purpose near the Dining Hall. 

Garbage: Please do not ask camp to be responsible for your garbage.  You may purchase tags for garbage bags from locations such as Giant Tiger, in Shelburne and put out your bags on garbage days, or, take all your recycling and garbage back home with you.

Parking: One vehicle is allowed per site with access, in addition to your trailer or RV. All other vehicles should be parked in our main Parking Lot near Admin. Some campsites (referred to as “Walk-In”), including the Group Camp Site, do not have access for vehicles. Please confirm with a staff member while booking if you face challenges that require easy access to your vehicle onsite.
