What if my child needs individual attention or extra support?
Additional support will be provided to your child if it is deemed necessary for him/her to have a successful camp experience.
What if my child needs frequent medical care? I’m worried because no one besides me has had to manage his/her symptoms before.
Our on-site medical staff will have a complete medical history of your child and are equipped to administer and maintain all your child’s medical needs. It is extremely important that you disclose all of your child(ren)’s needs, symptoms and treatment strategies on their application so that our medical team has the information they need to best support your child(ren).
I am concerned about my child’s bed-wetting. He/She doesn’t want anyone to know. What will you do if an emergency happens at night?
All our cabin counsellors (“Skips”) are trained to deal with this challenge in a discreet manner that respects the privacy of our campers. Our cabin counsellors have access to a supply of clean clothing and bedding at all times. Our on-site laundry facility ensures that campers have their laundry cleaned and returned to them on the same day.
My child usually refuses to wear a life jacket (PFD) while swimming, but I prefer he/she wears one. How will you ensure he/she stays safe while swimming?
Everyone participating in waterfront activities MUST take a swim test on the first full day of camp if they want to swim or boat. Those who do not pass this test or choose not to take the test MUST wear a life jacket. This policy is strictly enforced by our cabin counsellors and lifeguards.
How easy or realistic is it to expect my child will stick to their special diet at camp?
Camp meals are nutritious and well-balanced. We do our best within our capacity to accommodate all dietary restrictions. If your child requires a special diet please contact our Nursing Director to discuss specific details.
If my child or family member has a slight runny nose and cough, or a rash, can they still come to camp?
Contact our Nursing Director BEFORE coming to camp if your child has ANY signs or symptoms of an illness. We will do our best to accommodate your child and family into another session if they are too unwell to come to their originally scheduled session.
What if my child has a clinic appointment during camp?
One of our medical staff will bring your child to his/her appointment or a caregiver can come to camp and pick him/her up to take them.
