FAQs

What COVID-19 protocols will be in place?

To ensure the safety of your children and our staff:

  • Space will be limited to 10 students.
  • All students must wear masks and closed-toed shoes.
  • All students must fill out a COVID-19 screening before entering the building: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/
  • Students who exhibit COVID-19 symptoms will not be allowed to attend.
  • All of our staff members are fully vaccinated.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be placed at every entrance.
  • Parents will not be allowed to wait indoors for their children.

Do I need to provide lunch for my child?

Yes. Please provide your child with their own nut-free lunch, two healthy snacks, and a water bottle each day.  Please be aware that campers will not be allowed to share their food to further protect children that have allergies. 

Will my children be indoors all day?

Not at all! What makes our camp unique is the balance between indoor and outdoor activities. Our Makerspace is conveniently located right next to a local nature trail and park so campers get the chance to participate in challenges and activities outside, get some physical activities, and enjoy the fresh air!

What kinds of physical activity will kids do?

We encourage our campers to participate in the various team sports at camp. We have individual as well as more leisurely activities that campers can participate in, like catch, frisbee, and a number of other team-building activities that will get them moving!
