Questions

This weekend is an opportunity to gather and connect. It’s our intention to design it as safely and comfortably as possible for all.

We are following all public health guidelines.

As many classes/workshops/meals/gatherings as possible will be held in the expansive outdoor spaces at camp. There will be plenty of space for physical distancing.

Indoor spaces will be in open-air buildings with plenty of space for physical distancing.

Groups living together can choose to practice beside each other, eat together, and hug each other freely! If enjoying the company of campers we don’t live with, please be mindful of physical distancing and personal levels of comfort.

In the past, The Yoga Weekend has had 250 attendees, we are limiting the capacity to 125 attendees to allow for additional space and comfort.

The Yoga Weekend is at Camp Walden! It’s a beautiful, private, summer camp located just outside Bancroft, Ontario. The address is 38483 Hwy 28, Palmer Rapids, ON K0J 2E0

We will all work together to manifest warmth and sunshine! But if the weather is not on our side (though historically, this weekend has been beautiful), we will be able to accommodate physical distancing for meals and classes in the many open-air indoor spaces around camp.

Even though we intend to hold most classes, workshops, meals and gatherings in outdoor spaces, please bring along your mask to follow indoor protocols as required.

We believe that all those attending The Yoga Weekend take the health and safety of each other into consideration while making their personal decisions. We respect individual privacy and will not be asking about or requiring proof of vaccination.

We are constantly monitoring the guidelines to produce the most fantastic Yoga Weekend yet. We don’t intend to increase capacity even if guidelines ease (actually, we could now, but choose not to).

However, if conditions deteriorate, we will follow all protocols. If public health mandates or if it’s necessary to cancel The Yoga Weekend for any reason, we will refund all tickets.

We will miss you!!!

And will refund your ticket minus an administrative fee of $50.

In a beautiful and rustic camp cabin! click here to scroll through some pics of the setting you’ll enjoy for this beautiful weekend.

You tell us! As part of the registration process, you will be asked for your “cabin requests” where you can tell us who you want to live with.

Looking for a little more privacy, maybe even a romantic getaway? Reserve a “couples cabin” with room for only 2 (2 singles or a double are available).

Camp style dining is the opportunity for connection and collaboration. Enjoy classic camp favourites with a healthy approach to feed our active adult campers with discerning tastes. Our kitchen can accommodate vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free diets as well as other allergies and dietary restrictions. Please share your dietary requests in the registration application. You can read more about the food at camp on the Walden website
Please note: this weekend will not be nut free (our nut free policy is specific to kids’ camp programs)

Your fav camp bedding (sheets, pillow, blankets) and other cozy stuff that we’ll tell you all about in our packing list email

Nothing to fear here! Pick your favourite camp activity (waterski, canoe, tennis, zipline, and more), bring a good book to savour while chillin on the docks, take in a cooking class or health and wellness workshop. The weekend is yours…

Massages are offered by Registered Massage Therapists on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Payment is made directly to them and an official receipt will be provided. A sign-up link will be emailed to registered campers in the weeks before the weekend.

We endeavor to disconnect from phones, social media, etc. as much as possible. We do not have cell service at camp, but do have wifi available for those that need to check in periodically throughout the weekend.

There are additional fees for massage therapy, mala workshop and retail purchases. Otherwise, everything is included and you can enjoy a weekend with empty pockets.

We will be serving alcohol on Saturday night (included in your ticket price), but we’re all adults here so feel free to bring your favourite drink to enjoy around the camp fire.

We will be offering sign-up prior to the weekend to ensure ample space for physical distancing.

Having a smaller group allows for flexibility so you are not “stuck” with your choices and something you want might open up!

If you change your mind about something you’ve signed up for, please let us know as soon as possible so we can invite other campers into class!

And we will announce newly opened spots throughout the weekend.
