Membership Update

It has been brought to our attention that some of our members are not receiving the emails which have been sent out by the executive. Therefore we are asking any past or present FOLIC members who are not receiving the emails, or who have a change of address or phone number, to fill out the form below so we can update our records accordingly.

Campground Closure

We are very sad to advise all of you that your executive was advised by the RCMP that FOLIC will be closed for campers this season due to the following reasons;

Campsites are compact and in close proximity to each other and maintaining 2 meters separations along access routes would be challenging;

Kitchen, washroom, BBQ and playground facilities are shared and the RCMP is not well positioned to maintain an acceptable level of disinfection; and Insurance obtained through the Friends of Long Island Camp (FOLIC) does not cover risks associated with COVID 19.

As the owners of the property, the RCMP still has to meet basic responsibilities to maintain the property and to ensure all health and safety obligations are met. As Gerry will continue to assist the RCMP in coordination of this role, they will reimburse FOLIC for his expenses as the economic impact to FOLIC will be substantial without the campers this season.

For anyone who has a trailer in storage and wish to keep it there, please be advised that the fee will be the same, $1 per foot per month. Due to the layout of the compound if you wish to remove your trailer, there will be a $20 fee and it will be for the whole camping season, meaning you will not be allowed to bring your trailer back until the end of the season. Please contact Gerry via email at to make an appointment to remove your trailer.

We are extremely thankful to the RCMP for helping us in these difficult times.

we will continue to advise you of any developments.

End of season Notice

It has been a great summer and the camping season is fast coming to an end. All camp sites need to be vacated by end of day Monday Oct 8th. . Power and water supply to the sites will be shut down that day. If you are taking your trailer away for the winter please make sure it is off site by then. For those planning on having Gerry move it to the storage area it must be ready to go by Monday Oct 8th 2018 and a storage waiver form completed and submit with payment to Gerry before Oct 8th, 2018. All Rogers cable boxes and accessories must also be returned to Gerry.…/Trailer-Storage-Relocation-Waiver.201…

Fall clean up it is a big job which includes moving the trailers into the compound, picking up leaves and debris. This year contractors will be coming in to cut down some trees that are dead or sick and have become a hazard so a completely vacated park is absolutely required. As in past years you may stack the things you plan on leaving at the camp on the sites close to the washrooms keeping in mind that FOLIC or the RCMP assumes no responsibility for any losses or damage to items left there over the winter.
