It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to pick children up by camp closing time. In an emergency, you must make alternate arrangements to have the alternate person listed on your registration form pick your child up or make other suitable arrangements and have these arrangements cleared with the Camp Coordinator. We will not leave a child unattended. Because of this, we will enforce the following late pick-up policy. For any child picked up after 5pm there will be an additional charge of $15.00 from the first minute to ten minutes, an additional $15.00 will be added for each additional 10 minute interval. This fee will be added to your account. If there is an outstanding balance of late pick-up fees, future camp weeks may be cancelled.

  • What is the ratio of staff to campers? How large are your groups?

    Our camps are split into 3 levels of support. Camps in level 1 have a ratio of 1 staff to 3 children. Camps in level 2 have a ratio of 1 staff to 5 children. Camps in level 3 have a ratio of 1 staff to 7 children. Understanding the level of support in each camp will make sure your child has a safe and enjoyable experience here. Our camps can range anywhere from 10-30 campers. We base this number off the type of camp, the level of support required, and space available.

    We require campers to have 1:1 support if the individual:

    • Is medically fragile, has a g-tube, tracheotomy tubes, or those requiring suctioning
    • Requires assistance with personal care, for example transferring, toileting, feeding, and personal hygiene
    • Has behaviour concerns that require support to participate in group activities

    If your camper requires 1:1 support, requests and inquiries can be submitted to
