Camp pick up and drop off
Children must be dropped off and signed out each day by a parent, legal guardian or caregiver. List the names of any adult who is allowed to pick up your child on your Camper Information Form when you register. If you provide written consent, children over 10 may leave on their own at the end of the day when camp ends.
You’ll be charged a minimum of $5 for picking up your child late and an additional $5 for every 15 minutes thereafter.
Early drop-off or late pick-up
If you need to drop your child off early or pick them up later than the regular camp hours you can also register for extended hours in the mornings or afternoons.
Extended hours are from 7:30 to 9 a.m. in the mornings and 4 to 6 p.m. in the evenings and include supervised activities for your child. Late fees still apply if you pick your child up after 6 p.m.
At camp, your child’s safety is a first priority. All our camp counsellors and staff are certified in first aid every two years and swimming classes are supervised by certified lifeguards.
When you register for camp you’ll be asked if your child requires medication, needs an Epi-pen for allergies or has special needs.
Emergency or illness
If you need to contact your child in an emergency, please call the community centre. If your child gets ill during camp we will contact you right away using the emergency contact information you provided at the time of registration.
If your child is taking medication, you’ll need to send your child to camp with that day’s dose of the medication. Camp staff will store the medicine in a safe place until it is time for your child to take it. Your child will take the medication on their own, supervised by staff.
If your child requires medication or has an Epipen, you’ll also need to submit these forms when you register:
- Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan Package and Form
- Parent or Legal Guardian Medication Consent Form
- Emergency Contact Agreement Form
All of our camps are run as “allergy-aware” environments. This means that all of our staff are trained to use epinephrine self-injectors (Epi-pen, Twinject, Allerject) in the event of a severe allergy attack.
As a precaution, your child will be required to carry two unexpired self-injectors while they are at camp.
If your child requires special support to participate in camp, their support worker can attend camp with them at no extra cost.
You can also apply to have a dedicated staff member (called an inclusion facilitator) with your child every day at camp through our Recreation Support Program.
