Please attempt to arrange your own accommodations with friends or Christadelphian contacts in the Southern Ontario region. Don't forget to arrange a pick-up/drop-off at the airport, accommodations before and after the camp, and a car ride to and from the Conference. This is your responsibility and should be arranged early out of courtesy for anyone who may help you.

Should you require further assistance with airport pickup, accommodations, or a spot on the bus to/from Manitoulin, please fill out the Travel and Accommodation Request Form using Google Forms.
