Amenities


  • WATER:  Water  taps are located on each of the campsites, and both residential kitchens are plumbed to have cold water in the sinks.  The Maple Lodge Bunkhouse has flushing toilets and hot water "on demand" (the caretaker must turn it on at the beginning of camp).  Please note:  The water at Camp Creina has been tested and contains NO bacteria.  However, it contains a high level of iron, which tends to discolor the water.  If concerned, bring drinking water--the water is fine for cooking and wash-up. Liquid Disposal Pits have been permanently installed at all the tentsites and at the back of the residential buildings.
  • REFRIGERATION:  Both the Residential kitchens have kitchen-sized refrigerators.  A "cooler room" is located as part of the Toolhouse--it contains a freezer (shared by all the tentsites; be sure to clearly label food item with tentsite name), and a large industrial cooler, with shelves designated for each tentsite.
  • LATS:  Permanent outdoor latrines are located near each residential and tentsite area. 
  • SWIMMING:  Swimming is allowed in the river during summer months.  LIFEGUARD is required as per Guiding Essentials.  Shoes must be worn when in or near the water.
  • TELEPHONE:  a camp phone is located on the outside wall of the equipment storage shed, near the parking lot.  Please use this phone if calling the caretaker for assistance.  Cellphone reception is sporadic in the campsite.
  • OBSTACLE COURSE:  A rustic, fun, challenging area has been set up with monkey bars, tires, a balancing rope and a climbing structure.  Please note:  ADULT SUPERVISION REQUIRED
  • NATURE TRAILS:  There are three trails at Camp Creina--all should involve adult supervision.  The Trail sign just past Sailoquass campsite directs participants over a creek, across the Marion Goodwin Memorial bridge--it has some steep section.  The Joyce Lonsdale Trail  begins behind the McBryan / macy shelter, climbs up and through a wonderful forested section.  It has a few  wooden signs identifying some of the natural species of trees and shrubs.  Unfortunately many of the signs have been vandalized and the Committee is presently working at replacing them.  A third trail begins at the end of the Parking Lot, but is undergoing a clean-up and is not used much.
  • NATURE CUPBOARD:  a locked Nature Cupboard at the back of the equipment shed (close to parking lot) has interesting nature items found at Camp Creina.  Especially geared to the younger girls, it has interest for all ages.  The key is kept in the cooler room.
  • CHAPEL:  A non-denominational, inspirational setting in the woods with log benches and a dais, it is situated across from the Sailoquass campsite.
