What group would my camper be in?
We have programs that run all summer that when you register your camper, we place them automatically in a group. This placement is based on the age that they are as they attend camp. We also have some specialty programs that run certain weeks of the summer (Drama, Tennis, Mountain Biking ect.)
Will my Camper's counsellor be bilingual?
Yes. Each group has at least 2 counsellors and almost all of our staff are comfortable speaking in both official languages. At minimum one of the two will be fully bilingual. Come say ‘hi’ anytime, in any language, we’d love to meet you!
Can my camper be in a different age group?
We have designed our camp programs (right down to the age division) very deliberately. We truly believe our program to be an educational one and that we can provide unique opportunities for campers to develop their independence, awareness, and appreciation for both themselves and the world around them – all through the conduit of having a blast together! So we keep the campers in their respective age groups deliberately and don’t move them between groups. It’s a chance for the program to be fluid with the groups and be customized to the kids that are in the specific group. We’ve found it to be an excellent way to encourage making new friends and independence.
Where can I register?
Our registrations are done online. You can click the link on the right that says "register for a camp." If you don't have one already, make an account, then all of your information will be stored there for future registrations. If you have any questions just give us a call!
How does payment work?
Payment is made at the time of registration by credit card. There are three options for payment.
- Payment can be made in full when you register.
- You can pay only the deposit ($50/Camper/Per week) and pay the remainder in instalments that process automatically the first of each month,
- There is also the option to pay the deposit at registration and have the remainder process automatically the 1st of June
Are deposits refundable or transferable?
For each registered session (week) there is a $50 deposit. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable between other weeks or Campers. Should you choose to not attend Camp that week the deposit is not refunded nor transferable.
COVID Operations: should Camp not be able to host your Campers for reasons due to COVID (either a Camp closure or due to required isolation) a full refund (including the deposit) will be applied for missed experiences. In all other circumstances the deposit will be considered non-refundable and non-transferable.
How do I bring my kid to camp?
Drop off is between 8:00 – 8:20 each morning. We will have counsellors waiting at our drop off loop which is located on your second right after entering the park on Rotary Lodge Lane. We do ask that you do not drive through the pool parking as to not cause more traffic with the pool patrons. Counsellors will be excited to greet you and your campers and direct them down the path towards camp. If you choose to use the drop off loop we do ask that you do not exit your vehicle. If you would like to park in the front parking lot and walk your camper to the drop off zone that is more than welcome! But we will ask that you don’t go any further with your camper, the camp boundaries are a camper and staff only zone!
When does camp end for a day, and how does pick up work?
Pick up is between 4:15 and 4:30, and it will be in the same area as drop off (the loop up by the pool!) We will ask that you only show up for 4:15 to allow us to get there and be ready for you, so we don’t cause too big of a line up! A counsellor will approach your car and ask for your camper’s name, then they will bring them right to you! No need to exit your vehicle when in the loop, we want to be as efficient as possible. If you would like to park in the front parking lot and walk down to pick up your camper, or if you can walk from home, we ask that you wait in the grassy area on the left side of Rotary Lodge lane and we will do the same process. A counsellor will bring your camper to you, to allow for no interaction between you and the other campers!
What should my child bring to camp with him/her?
Our days are very active, so we recommend older clothes that you won't mind getting dirty. With that each camper needs a lunch, snacks, and drinks. Your child will also need proper swim gear, towel as well as sunscreen and bug spray.
Is there camp on holidays?
Yes. Our summer is 9 weeks long and every week goes Monday - Friday. The price of camp is administered for the full 5 days and we do not offer part-weeks.
What is campfire? And when is it?
Thursdays are typically when we have our Campfire! Details for what Campfires will look like in Summer 2021 will be determined dependent on operational procedures for COVID. Stay tuned for updates!
What is the camp sponsorship program?
It is a set of donations from local companies and individuals who understand the huge impact that a week at summer camp can have on a child. Any donation goes to a fund that is spent completely on sending kids to camp who would not have otherwise had the opportunity to do so.
What weeks of the summer does camp run?
We run for 9 weeks. Our first week is June 28th - July 2nd and our last week is August 23rd - 27th, 2021.
