2022 Season update

April 4th, 2022

Greetings from Jim and Julies Wabaskang Camp. We know it’s been a very difficult and tumultuous time since Covid 19 came into our lives but the future is beginning to look more and more positive for camp owners and their guests. Julie and I plan on heading back to camp in late April and are hopeful the heavy snowfall this season will bring the lake back to manageable levels before our season starts on the 21st of May. 

We have some exciting news concerning the COVID-19 prearrival testing requirement. As of April 1st, the requirement has lifted for fully vaccinated travelers entering Canada. Passengers may still be subject to random testing at the airports and all passengers must still use the ArriveCAN app to enter their proof of vaccination and all other required information.

Canadian Government Announcement


Julie and I realize some of our loyal guests are not planning to get the vaccination at this time and we certainly understand your decision. We are hopeful that more restrictions will ease in the future and allow all of our guests to return. We appreciate everyone’s patience since the beginning of the pandemic and feel things are beginning to move in the right direction. We will update our site with more information as it becomes available. Stay safe and healthy and hopefully we will be able to see each other again soon.

Jim and Julie
