Camp Policies

General Policies

Timberline Ranch staff does its best to make sure all guests enjoy their experience. Here are a few important items to be aware of:

  • Smoking is only permitted by adults and only in the parking lot.
  • Visitors with pets must keep them on a leash at all times and may not keep them overnight at the ranch. Pets are not allowed in any buildings.

Lost and Found Policy

Please label all your belongings before you arrive. Please do not bring valuable items (video cameras, digital cameras, cell phones, tablets, money, etc.) to camp.

Retrieving lost items

If you discover you are missing an item once you return home, please do not call the office, but rather send us an email. The following items should be included in the message:

  • guest’s name
  • dates attended
  • item description
  • colour
  • size (youth or adult: small medium or large)
  • identifying marks
  • brand name
  • where it was possibly left (barn, cabin, dining hall, etc.)

If your item has been turned in, you will be contacted and given the choice of picking your item up or having it shipped to you. Shipping and handling costs will be charged to your credit card.

We try to reunite reported lost and found items with their owners; however, our priority is children on site. We attend to lost and found items as time allows.
