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

2. Any new paperwork required?? No you don't require any different forms.

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.

6. Is it open all year around? No, due to falling branches, tree maintenance and puddles it is closed during the winter months.

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


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