2018 Summer Camps!

1. Camper Pick Up and Drop Off
Campers 9 years and under MUST have adult supervision at all times during morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Please ensure that regular escorts and emergency contacts are recorded with your registration. Only those adults listed will be permitted to pick up your child(ren). Please notify us of any change in your child’s pick up routine by calling 519.364.2310 x 2134. This is our safe arrival hotline. Children are NOT allowed to leave early without written consent from a parent or guardian.

2. Lunch and Snacks
Due to the number of life-threatening allergies that children in camps have to peanuts/nuts, our summer camps have become a “nut aware” environment. We therefore request all parents to avoid sending peanut or nut products to camp.

3. Payment Plan
If registering for 2 or more weeks, a Visa/Mastercard payment plan may be utilized. Credit card payment for the first week registering must be processed on the date of registration. Subsequent payments will be processed on your credit card the week prior to the program start date. Payment Plans are not available for the Specialty Camps.
