Because Camp Winnebagoe is committed to maintaining a relatively small population, we are able to individuate and conscientiously attend to the needs of all our campers, including those with disabilities. In compliance with Regulation 429/07, Winnebagoe has established policies and procedures which support persons with disabilities so that its services are communicated in a manner supporting principles of dignity, integration and equal opportunity.
There are situations involving safety or physical limitations where Winnebagoe’s facilities or programs cannot be accessible to people with certain disabilities. In such cases, clients are encouraged to communicate with us to understand which services are accessible as would apply to specific disabilities.
We understand that people with disabilities may require the use of assistive devices, service animals and Support Persons. While we do allow assistive devices, we are unable to provide them. Service animals will be allowed wherever the general public is allowed. The law, however, does not permit such animals in the dining hall, kitchen or Health Centre. Support Persons will be allowed to accompany a person with a disability. Such persons will require a Police Check and will be required to pay a reduced fee.
We are committed to training our staff in accordance with the AODA requirements and standards ensuring their familiarity with assistive devices, service animals and/or Support Persons. Moreover, training will also include the ability to communicate and interact with people with various disabilities as well as what to do should a person with a disability be experiencing difficulty in accessing our goods and services. Additional training will take place when changes are made to our accessible customer plan.
Camp Winnebagoe continuously evaluates the services offered to all its campers and staff alike. Feedback and suggestions from camp families is encouraged and comments are regularly reviewed should any changes to our services or programs be required.
Comments, questions and feedback should be directed to the Camp Director by telephone (705 789 5892), email (email@example.com) or by mail (52 East Fox Lake Rd., Huntsville, ONT, P1H 2N3).
