Is your child "camp-ready?"

For some children, being in an all-day camp program can be a big adjustment, and we want to make sure that your child is ready. To help you determine if your child is ready for camp, we have provided some indicators:

  • Your child can take part in activities with instructions suitable to their level.
  • Your child is comfortable interacting with other children their own age.
  • If your child has gone to school, they can stay without any issues.
  • Your child can follow safety rules.

If your child is four years of age or older and meets all of these criteria, we feel confident in their ability to successfully participate in our camp programs.

Minimum Number Of Registrants

All programs have a minimum number of registrants to run. Unless otherwise stated the number of participants required for any summer camp program is six (6).
