Introducing: TASQS from Camp Feral! + PreOrders and Cabin Requests Close!!

🍅 Howdy campers!

Ketchup here with a visualization exercise for you before you read the newsletter! OK, so first, close your eyes. Now, take three deep breaths.. OH! Exhale after each one! Don’t take three deep breaths without exhaling in between, you might hurt yourself! Now that you’re relaxed, visualize Camp Feral! approaching as though it’s a cloud, floating calmly towards you—fresh air, gentle breeze… and imagine how warm the…

OH CRAP STICKS!! You can’t read this!! You closed your eyes and… I never thought of how I might prompt you to open them. Oh…OH! I’m stuck!!! I can’t guide you through the newsletter! You’ll miss the closing of Preorders and Cabin Requests! You won’t know how to find cabin mates, or volunteer, and will never understand that concept of TASQS!

I’m going to have to run to each of your houses and tell you to open your eyes! YOU CAN’T KNOW THIS YET, BUT I’M COMING TO HELP!!!!

Preorders Close August 14th


Aug 14th 2023


After Monday, August 14th, we will no longer be accepting pre-orders for our t-shirts and hoodies through Regfox, and any new upgrades to patron level we won’t be able to guarantee the inclusion of a patron gift.

What You Need to Do:

email registration to make any changes to your registration, including pre-ordering shirts and hoodies, or upgrading to Sponsor or Patron, before Monday, August 14th.

Cabin Requests Close August 14th


Aug 14th


After August 14th we will be closing the cabin request form and will not be accepting any further requests. This is to help give us time to arrange our cabin list before camp. You’ll find out what cabin you are in and who you are rooming with after dinner on the first night of camp.

What You Need to Do:

If you or a designated person from your group has already submitted a cabin request:

Nothing! Carry on!

If you have not yet submitted a cabin request for yourself or your group:

Go do the thing before August 14! The cabin request form is here: https://forms.gle/MVmTMEc9r6smcwM68

If you need to make a change to your request:

email cabins before Aug 14th.

What if I need to change something after Aug 14th?

Any additional changes after that date will be handled on site. Come to con-ops after dinner and speak with operations.

What happens if I don’t submit a request?

We’ll do our best to find a good fit for you. If there are any issues with your cabin assignment come to con-ops and speak with operations.

Help! I don’t know anyone!

No problem at all! Fill out the request form for yourself and that will help us put you in a cabin with similar preferences.

If you haven’t already, consider joining our discord server and say hi to some fellow campers! We also have forums for cabin roommates and ride shares.

Sign Up To Volunteer!




We are looking for some eager beavers… er, gophers who would like to volunteer to help out Feral staff on site this year. If you are willing to help us carry some things, set up/tear down some things, or hand out some things you will earn our love and gratitude (and a thank you gift!)

What You Need to Do:

If you are interested in volunteering

You can sign up here: https://forms.gle/yZsq8sX4HFhoP1YU7

I offered to volunteer earlier in the year! Do I need to fill this form out?

Nope, you are all set.


You have learned how business is casual. You understand the complexities of Sideways Touchpoint Advocacy, our IP and the heart of our entire business. Now introducing… TASQS!

OK… I’ve was informed that you all probably did not close your eyes, and also my request for everyone’s home address was denied for… obvious reasons. Besides, I don’t know how I would have gotten to at least ONE OF YOU anyways! (Du vet vem du är.)

But that’s all in the past!! I’m so excited for camp that I’m picking up something new to bring… Ill give you three clues as to what it is!

1) It is ubiquitous: everyone has one but everyone always want one that’s better than the one they have!
2) Some say it ‘ties’ you down but I say it ‘keeps you connected!’
3) And last clue: it rhymes with CASTLE!

Gotta keep up with tradition, after all! YEAH!

P.S. I warned you last newsletter, looks like TASQS debut at camp! Are you excited? … no seriously, are you? Because i think I am… am i?

May 2022 News and Updates

Goooooood morning Feral Campers! 

Registration is behind us, camp has sold out, and we can start looking forward to bright sunny days up at camp! As we get closer to heading up to Algonquin you can expect to see a few newsletters with pertinent updates, this being one of them! Please take a moment to read the sections below as this is some pretty good-to-know stuff. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at info@campferal.org

Deposit Cutoff Date

Our registration deposit cut off date is June 12th. If you opted to register using a deposit please note that your method of payment will be automatically billed the remaining balance of your registration on June 12th. Also note that this is when our refund policy changes. Any registration cancellations that occur on or after this date will be fully refunded less $80 CAD.

COVID-19 Policy

The COVID-19 pandemic is still shaking things up globally and while we feel confident in our ability to bring you a safe camp experience, we recognize that we face a lot of challenges given that we’re fairly isolated out in Algonquin, there’s a lot of shared spaces, and we provide the option of transportation to and from camp via the Feral Bus. This has raised a lot of interesting questions as to how certain situations may be handled, such as if a positive COVID case is confirmed while on site.

As agreed to during registration you already know that we require you to be fully vaccinated before attending camp, but we know that there will be more policies needed depending on the state of the pandemic when we get to camp. We have regular communication with Arowhon and are assessing the situation as it develops in order to determine what policies will be most appropriate. You will get updates regarding any new policy via future newsletters. We will also update our COVID-19 policy page on campferal.org.

Please remember that we want to do everything we can to let everyone have as much fun as possible, but safety must always be our first priority.

We would also like to take a moment to remind you that your vaccination status needs to be verified when you arrive at camp or the bus. Please ensure that you have a printed, non-digital, copy of your vaccination records handy as there is limited cell service in Algonquin Provincial Park. You may not be able to download digital copies and if you are unable to provide your vaccination records you will not be permitted on site.

Limited Spots on the Bus

There’s been heavy demand when it comes to bus transportation this year and are getting very close to full capacity. If you were planning on signing up for the bus at a later date please let us know now and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you would like to add bus service to your registration, please reach out to us at registration@campferal.org.


Several of you have reached out asking how you can give back to Camp Feral with your time while at camp this year. If you have an interest in volunteering at camp please reach out to us at info@campeferal.org. There is no minimum required amount of time when it comes to volunteering at camp and any amount of time you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Cabin Selection

We’re collecting your cabin preferences this year using this form! You can use this form to let us know what your needs are and who you would like to have in your cabin. Please note that if you are unsure as to who you would like to have in your cabin it would be great if you could still fill out the form so we know what your preferences are.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review all this info and remember that you can always reach out to us at info@campferal.org if you have any questions!
