Winter Getaway Weekends

  1. Friday, Jan  15 (7pm) – Monday, Jan 18 (9am)
  2. Friday, Feb 12 (7pm) – Monday, Feb 15 (9am) – FULL

We’re excited to offer 2021 Winter Getaway Weekends, despite significant programatic changes for safety during this COVID-19 pandemic! These getaways will include no indoor gatherings with multiple family units. Here are some other notable changes to how we’ll run these programs:

  • Meals – We will not be serving meals in the Dining Hall. Instead, all meals will be served to-go from the Dining Hall and may be picked up to take back to enjoy in your lodges. Each lodge will be outfitted with a table and chairs to eat meals. Breakfast and Dinner will include hot meals, while lunches will be a cold bag lunch (which you can pick up early), that can easily be taken to eat at the Ski Hill, your lodge, or on any other winter adventure.
  • Housing – we’re committed to house only one family unit per lodge (unless asked otherwise). Some space in each lodge will be converted for dining. 
  • Dining Hall – this space will not be available for playing games or gathering. 
  • Worship – We will not be holding group worship services, but we will provide a remote (booklet, audio, or video) intergenerational devotional message to go through each day as a family. (We’re still working on what exactly this will look like)
  • Program – This Winter Getaway Weekend is directed more towards spending time with only your individual family pod, and a less with the broader camp community. We will not be holding large group activities. Many of the planned activities will be “Do It Yourself,” where camp simply provides resources: 
    • Tubing Hill – with one family unit at a time
    • Ice Rink – CPBC has ice skates in a variety of size, but feel free to BYO
    • XC Skiing – if weather cooperates, we’ll have our Ge-Che Cross Country Ski Trail (16km) groomed and ready. Skis can be checked out from CPBC for the week.
    • Downhill skiing at Ski Brule. *Ski Brule will not be making snow for the 2020-21 season, so this is dependent on snowfall.
    • Sauna and polar bear dip – one family unit at a time (sign up for a time) 
    • Snowshoe (check snowshoes in/out daily)
    • Ski or snowshoe at Anvil Lake (30 min drive, get map & birdseed to feed chickadees from your hand before you go! There is a $5 parking fee.)
    • Cookie Decorating (get a kit & take to your cabin)!
    • Games & puzzles in your lodge
    • DIY Ice Fishing (BYO gear & License), snow fort building, or any other winter activity your family can think up!
  • COVID-19 Guideline and Screening – Before your arrival at camp, please thoroughly read our Retreat COVID-19 Guidelines and fill out a COVID-19 Waiver and Screening Form.

Excited to offer this opportunity to enjoy camp this winter!
