Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions and answers that we thought would be helpful prior to visiting our site!

Is Cedar Glen shared by multiple groups and/or people at the same time?

This certainly depends on the time of the year but it is common to have multiple groups and individual programs running at Cedar Glen at one time. We do our best to ensure that each booking has dedicated space in our lodges, dining hall, program areas, campsite, firepits, etc. It is important to be aware that there are plenty of shared spaces across site (ie. outdoor volleyball courts) that are available for all our guests to access and are not privately reserved.

Are there staff available onsite in the event of an emergency?

Throughout your visit, there will be staff available to assist should you have any issues, questions or if there is an emergency. If you are staying overnight, there will also be a staff member onsite to assist you, if necessary. Upon arrival, you will be provided with our on-call phone number, as well details on how to reach our staff should you need anything. You can find this number posted in plenty of places across site, so it will be easily accessible to you.
