Things You Should Know About Camp!

  1. Camper Pick Up and Drop Off
    Campers 9 years and younger 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 changes in your childs’ 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. Ages
    See specific camp description for ages. Participants must have turned the minimum age and not exceed the maximum
    age by the first day of the camp week that they are registering for. Camp leaders will take age difference into account when
    programming activities. Our camp ratios offer a maximum of 1 leader to 10 participants.

  3. Lunch and Snacks
    Due to the 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. Please send energizing foods
    including fruits, vegetables and drinks. Limiting “sugary” foods is highly recommended.
  4. Medical Information
    Health and safety is our number one priority. Please ensure that we have up-to-date information about your child’s medical
    conditions including doctor’s name and an emergency contact that can be reached during the hours of 8:00am - 5:15pm.

  5. What to Bring
    Parents will receive a “Parent Handbook” which outlines specific policies and details as to what campers should bring.

  6. Swimming
    Campers enjoy 1 hour of pool time daily.

  7. Payment Plan
    If registering for 2 or more weeks, a credit card payment plan may be utilized. Credit card payment for the first week registering must be
    processed on the date of registration. The remaining dollar amount will be divided evenly and processed on your credit card the week
    prior to the start of the program. (i.e. If registered for camp July 22-26, the payment will be porcessed July 15). Subsidy is available.

  8. Behaviours
    Kamp K utilizes the stoplight system for discipline. Depending on the situation, the following steps will be taken:
    a) Green Light: You are having a GREAT DAY!
    b) Yellow Light: A verbal warning: Child has explained to staff what they did wrong and how this behaviour can be corrected in the future.
    c) Orange Light: 10 minute time out: Staff removes a participant from the activity.
    d) Red Light: Meeting with Camp Supervisor and/or Program Supervisor and note home to parents. Depending on the severity,
    may result in removal from camp.
    Children are to follow the guidelines and rules that will be discussed each morning, remain with their program leader at all times
    and play cooperatively. Any offensive language or actions will not be tolerated.

  9. Safe Arrival Hotline
    If your child is NOT attending camp for any erason, please call us at 519.364.2310 x 2134 prior to 9:30am s owe can inform camp leaders.
