This will serve notice of a change to the nightly rental rate for Camp Tawow for Beardy’s & Okemasis’ Cree Nation members.

The rate per night is now $500.00/night. This rate will take place effective immediately. To alleviate any no-shows or cancellation of bookings, a $300.00 non-refundable deposit will be imposed. Meaning, you will be required to provide $300.00 to the booking receptionist upon booking, and the balance at least 10 days before your first night.

For example, $300.00 deposit required at time of booking. A Friday-Sunday booking equals = $1000.00 balance to be provided before arrival. Upon departure, camp maintenance will check to ensure there are no damages, graffiti, etc. The deposit of $300.00 will be returned within 30 days.
