Financial Assistance

    All guests are welcome to apply for additional assistance. The application does not guarantee funding or funding amounts. If you are

    interested in receiving additional funding, please complete Section 2 and include all required documentation.

Swim Tests and Waterfront Safety

    Any camper wishing to participate in any waterfront programming (including boating) must participate in a swim test. Swim tests are traditionally offered on arrival day. It is the discretion of the CNIB Lake Joseph Center Lifeguards and Waterfront Coordinator to assess the swimming ability of each camper.

    According to the Lifesaving Society, children seven years and younger must be within arms reach of an adult in the water (someone 16 years or older) as well as on the beach. This is in addition to the Lifeguards on the beach. Families are responsible for providing this supervision. For more information , please visit

    Campers aged eight to 12 must be accompanied to the beach and waterfront by an adult (someone 16 years or older). This is in addition to the lifeguards on the beach. Families are responsible for providing this supervision.

Assisted Support

    Lake Jo staff are selected, trained and insured to deliver recreational programs only. Lake Jo staff are unable to tend to personal care or complex medical needs. The services of a personal caregiver (guide), is the responsibility of the guest.

    Lake Jo is unable to extend financial assistance for Guides (including family members and intervenors). Campers coming to camp for multiple sessions should be able to care for themselves for extended periods of time.

    If you or a family member require help with any of the following, you will be responsible for arranging for a guide while you are at camp:


    Brushing teeth

    Grooming (shaving)




    Transferring to and from a wheel chair

    Getting self to and from program areas, dining room, etc.

    Getting to bed and waking in the morning

    Determining which programs to participate in

CNIB Lake Joseph Centre is not equipped to attend to complex

    medical or personal care needs.

Note: If a guest arrives at Lake Jo without a guide and it is later

    deemed that this guest requires the services of a guide, the guest will

    be asked to leave at their own expense and no refund will be granted.

    This includes major medical mishaps while at camp.

     I have read and understand the above policies.

    Each camper must sign the Lake Jo policies. If a camper is under the

    age of 18, a guardian must sign for the camper.
