Can I stay with my friends?
Yes! You can stay with whoever you want - we encourage you to make your own cabin! Be sure to choose a group name and have everyone in your group indicate the exact same name on your registration (this will let us know who you want to bunk with).
I have more than 12 friends who want to bunk together - can we do that?
Yes! Just make sure to indicate your group name when registering for camp. You can also send an email to Natalie firstname.lastname@example.org just to confirm this.
I'm buying tickets for myself and friends. What information to do I need from my friends in order to purchase their tickets?
You are a great pal! We actually need to know quite a bit of important information about each camper, such as dietary restrictions, emergency contact, allergies or other medical conditions, etc. We recommend that your friend provide you with this information before you purchase tickets.
Who will be in my cabin?
You can choose to be in a gender-specific cabin or co-ed cabin by indicating your preference when you purchase your ticket and we guarantee we'll accommodate.
Are all cabins co-ed?
Certainly not! When you purchase your tickets, you can indicate if you want to be in a co-ed, women only or male only cabins.
What is the schedule for the weekend?
We have a jam packed schedule that begins as soon as you arrive to camp! The details will be sent to you via email a few weeks prior to camp.
Do I have to participate in the activities?
No, but we definitely encourage getting the most of the weekend by participating in the activities. This is a camp for grown-ups and you are free to use your time however you’d like. That being said, there are specific meal times that will not be altered for late comers. There will be snacks available at all times, but should you miss a meal, we can get you something to eat, but it likely won’t be the awesome food prepared by our chefs.
Is there an age limit to enter the event?
This is a 19+ event. We like kids a whole lot – but this is a weekend strictly for adults.
Will there be vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and allergy specific food options?
Of course! You can indicate this in your registration when you purchase your ticket.
What do I need to bring?
We’ll send you a packing list before a few weeks before the weekend.
Do you have Two Islands Weekend merchandise?
Yes! We will have hoodies and toques. Pre-order when registering for camp and a limited amount at camp for purchase.
Can I bring a tent to sleep in?
Sleeping accommodations are in assigned cabins only.
Is transportation included?
All campers are required to organize their own transportation. To reduce your carbon footprint and save money on gas, we highly encourage you to carpool. We will organize a rideshare program for anyone interested in giving or getting a lift. Details will be sent in early summer.
Can I bring my dog?
No. An exception is made for campers with Service Animals. Campers who require their Service Animal should indicate this in the registration package.
Is Camp Timberlane wheelchair accessible?
Yes! Should any guest be in a wheelchair or require special assistance in some way, please indicate this on the registration when you purchase tickets and we’ll be happy to accommodate you.
