Cabins are grouped by age, gender and if needed, in consultation with the camper and their parent/guardian to ensure that they are supported in the cabin that they most identify with.
Campers Requiring Extra Staffing at Camp
Camp Maple Leaf has buildings and cabins that are wheelchair accessible. We are happy to discuss camper's individual needs with parents prior to accepting their child at Camp. Any decision made about accepting campers with additional staff needs will be based on the Camp's judgment on the safety of the prospective camper and of our other campers and counseling staff. To discuss your child's needs, please call the Camp Director.
