What does a typical day of camp look like?
Each camp day begins with a camp song or challenge led by the counsellors. Following this, campers rotate through a number of indoor and outdoor activities, including swimming, archery and drama. Two snacks and lunches are provided.
Wednesday is rock climbing day, Thursday is hired entertainment or counsellor planned camp-wide day and Fridays are dress-up days based on the weekly theme and the parent show! The parent show will take place on Friday from 3:10 to 3:50 p.m.
Will my camper have to wear the camp t-shirt every day?
The camp t-shirt is not mandatory for purchase, although they are popular among the campers! If you purchased a t-shirt upon registration, they will be distributed on the first day of camp.
What items should my camper bring to camp?
We encourage all campers to bring sunscreen, a reusable water bottle, a hat and running shoes for outdoor play. It is also important that they bring their bathing suit, towel, and goggles (if they wish) for swimming. Younger campers are also encouraged to bring a change of clothes, including clean underwear, in case of any accidents.
Can my camper bring toys to camp?
Things get forgotten at camp. We do not recommend that campers bring toys to camp. The camp will not be held responsible for lost or damaged items.
Is food provided?
Yes, food is provided in a nut-aware environment. We have two snacks: one in the morning and one in the afternoon, along with lunch. Our menu will be posted on our camp website.
All dietary allergies and/or restrictions should be documented in the medical forms component of your registration. Due to the number of campers, we are not able to accommodate food preferences.
My child is not a good swimmer. Will they be safe?
All campers will complete a simple swim test at the beginning of the week to determine if they need to wear a life jacket while in the pool. Parents are also encouraged to share any concerns with the counsellor at the beginning of the week.
My child does not feel like swimming today. Can they do something else during swimming?
We encourage all children to swim in the pool and cannot provide special programming or activities if your child is unable to swim. Children will be supervised during swimming in the pool area at all times.
What will my camper do if there is inclement weather?
We have plans and adjustments for hot, humid or rainy weather. Pick-up will remain at the regular time.
My camper has medication (an EpiPen, etc.). How will these be stored and administered?
Please complete and upload all medical forms/information as part of the registration process. EpiPens will stay on your child’s camp counsellor's person at all times. EpiPens and other medications can also be stored with the camp nurse.
How does the Camp mitigate the possibility of bullying at summer camp?
We take the welfare, experience and safety of each camper very seriously. Our summer staff team is trained in the prevention of bullying. We also have policies and procedures in place to prevent bullying.
A counsellor is expected to always be with campers, which lessens the potential for bullying.
The entire summer camp team is dedicated to fostering a community of care and respect for all campers. Our staff commit themselves to this way of life and model it for the campers. At the beginning of every week, we talk about the importance of being kind to one another and helping everyone have fun while at camp.
