With just under 200 acres and a large waterfront, the Glen Mhor site is a perfect location for a retreat away from home. Our buildings and site layout provide fantastic accommodations to visitors of any age, with a 5-minute walk to get to most places on site. The main lodge provides the perfect indoor area, housing 17 wooden tables with benches, a large stone fireplace, a piano, and a projector and sound system. The site capacity is 140 participants for a day group, or 124 participants overnight.
While at camp, participants will sleep in one of the 12 on-site cabins. Cabins can sleep 10-12 people comfortably on bunk beds, with shelves for storage. All cabins are within a three-minute walk to the lodge complex (dining hall and washrooms) and are a short walk to the waterfront and other areas on site as well.
The main washroom complex, including shower facilities, is located in the main lodge building. There are also KYBOs (outhouses) provided in closer proximity to all cabins.
Cairn provides excellent, nutritious meals, should your group request our catering services. The food package includes three meals per day and an evening snack. All our meals are home cooked by our food service staff, and are served in our dining hall. A menu will be provided from which you can select the meals that would best suit your group. All efforts will be made to meet the needs of any special diets, given sufficient notice. Our camps are “nut and peanut aware,” so the food prepared in our kitchen is nut and peanut free. We encourage all our guests to adhere to this policy and not to bring “may contain nuts” products with them to camp.
We have a fully equipped Health Centre located directly beside our main lodge, available for all first aid needs. Additionally, all programme areas have access to fully stocked first aid kits, and each staff member carries a first aid kit with them at all times. A local doctor, Dr. John Rea, and the Huntsville Hospital (approximately a 25 minute drive) are on call and available in case of a more serious incident or injury.
The Glen Mhor site is fortunate to be situated on the lakefront, providing us with distinctive waterfront areas for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and our water trampoline. Land programs include an archery range, low ropes course, 32‘ climbing wall, bouldering wall, zip line, five-element high ropes course, equipment for group and individual initiatives, throwing blanket, disc golf course, sports equipment, outdoor nature programs, arts and crafts, an extensive costume closet, music and drama room, beach volleyball court, and a trampoline. Other spaces include our outdoor chapel, a hammock village with 12 hammocks, campfire circles, playing fields, and many acres of wilderness. Programming is available upon request.
All rental groups must have appropriate insurance coverage. If your group does not have a sponsoring organization and therefore no pre-arranged insurance coverage, you may be covered under Cairn’s Insurance Policy for an additional cost of $100.
