What does the term "Waitlist" mean?
Once a camp reaches capacity, we start to place campers on a waitlist – at no cost! Adding your name to this list helps us keep track of who to call first when an opening happens.
Can I request who I want to share a cabin with?
Yes! When you register you are able to fill out your “Cabin Buddy Requests.” Make sure you and your friends request each other, that way we can ensure that you will be in the same cabin together.

Do you have to be a Christian or attend church to come to camp?
No. We welcome campers and families from all backgrounds. We are a christian camp that incorporates biblical principles into our programs, cabin times and chapel sessions.   
What are Chapel times like?
We have 2 chapel sessions per day at camp, one in the morning and one in the evening.  Each session is rougly 1 hour long and typically includes 30 mins of singing, a skit or game, and bible teaching.  Campers are encouraged to listen, ask questions, and participate.  We believe sharing the love of Jesus Christ, is best done through genuine relationsship's that respect emotional, physical and spiritual boundaries.  We will present what we believe about God and who Jesus is, without pressuring others to do the same.  We offer free bibles to anyone who is interested in learning more about it, and we encourage campers to discuss what we teach with their parents. 
What time is closing ceremonies?
Everyone is welcome to attend our closing ceremonies which start at 6:30 PM on the last day of Camp.  During this time you will see the campers sing songs that they learnt during the week, and you will watch the highlight video as well.  After closing ceremonies parents or guardians will sign out their campers, pick up any medication, collect lost and found items, and have a chance to shop in the camp store.
Please be aware that traffic coming out of Victoria can sometimes be heavy, please plan ahead and give enough time to avoid the rush.

Each season will have 1-2 certified nurses or paramedics and 2-3 first-aid attendants. Only 30 mins from Camp Imadene is the Cowichan District Hospital.
 
All staff 18+ must have a completed criminal record check prior to being hired.  Cabin Leaders complete a basic first-aid training session.
