We have high water levels but all Programs are running – Registration is Open

The Water may be high but all programs continue to operate including our camp programs at rouge Beach

Lake Ontario is currently facing high water levels and both the City of Toronto and City of Pickering have blocked vehicular access to both of our club sites.  Our Rouge Beach clubhouse and equipment were not effected by the high water.

We have a plan in place to ensure a safe and dry path for our campers to reach our Rouge Beach camp location. This year we will have two drop-off and pick-up locations.    The first drop-off location is at the Rouge Hill Go Train Station and the second drop-off location is on Bella Vista Dr. in Pickering.

Programs also continue to operate as normal from our Pickering location on Frenchman’s Bay.   The City of Pickering has blocked the eastern portion of Beach Point Promenade.   To access the club you will need to park in the city parking lot, and walk down the road to the club.  Please enter the trailers from the east side.
