Please know that Marydale is a predominately outdoor facility, as such, to keep your child safe while with us, we recommend you pack:

  • Sunscreen
  • A refillable water bottle
  • Bug Spray

It is also important that you know the children will be around nature, which includes ticks. Please note that at the Marydale facility, we have only ever found Dog ticks which DO NOT carry Lyme disease. Lyme disease is only found in Deer ticks. However, it is still important that you check your child thoroughly from head to toe, and if a tick is found, that you report it to public health immediately. More information on ticks has been attached to this email, or can be found on our website www.cyo.on.ca/campmarydale
