Lottery 'Waves'

The lottery takes place December 12-15, with one registration wave occurring daily. Each registered household is randomly assigned to a registration wave. 

Wave assignments will be sent the week before the lottery. Links to register online will be sent to each registered household on the morning of their assigned wave. 

During the lottery, updates are posted to the Facebook pages for Camp du Nord and Camp Northern Lights.

Waiting List

Once the lottery is complete, households may register for the waitlist. The price to join the waitlist is $25 per camp location. Waitlist registrants will receive an email the morning after a site becomes available.

Open Registration

Open registration begins December 19. The remaining sites will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Deposits and Payments

All Lottery and Open Registration reservations require a 10% deposit payment at the time of registration. The remaining balance will be billed in four monthly installments on February 15, March 15, April 15, and May 15.

Lotter Group Registration

A group is two or three households that will be placed in the same registration wave. To register as a group, each household must register for the lottery.  

During the assigned wave, each household will register for its own site. Households may not register on behalf of another household. You may not register for multiple sites.

Signing Up For Both Family Camps

To remain equitable in our registration process, households may only register for one family camp during lottery day. During open registration, households may register for any available site, at either camp.
