FAQ

1. Is there a user fee? No user fee. Thank you all for your donations and we still need a bit more.

3. How do I book it? Groups will be contacted about 2 weeks prior to their camp dates to book a time for the low ropes course.

4. Can I supervise it myself? No, a trained facilitator must be with all groups using the course. Camp Olave will provide the facilitator.

5. How many girls can use the site as one time? The maximum size is 30 girls for a ninety minute session. It is helpful if the groups provide Junior Leaders or Guiders to help. Training onsite will be provided.

A lovely summer day at Camp Olave trying out some new canoes!

Below you will see a poem by a happy young camper.

Haiku

Wind blows in the trees
Softly blowing silently
Calm, nice and very free.
