The Nitty Gritty:

A Daily Health Check is to be completed and verified at drop-off before participating in the program.  The health check will be sent to your email each morning. You can also access our form online at any time here.

Camp is outside, children should apply sunscreen at home and dress in layers as the weather can change throughout the day. It is important to send all the above listed items everyday so children can fully participate in activities. Our staff appreciate parents who label everything, it makes our job a little easier. We have large outdoor tents to provide shade and shelter from most weather conditions. In the case of extreme weather, we will go indoors until it has passed. 

When Do We Move Indoors:

Our camps are designed to be outdoors, rain or shine. Extreme weather such as thunderstorms are the exception. If the weather is calling for storms please check your email and your mobile device for confirmation. When we move indoors the sign in and sign out location may change to our emergency shelter location.

All Camps (except EBTKS, Pottery, LEGO) will move to First Avenue Public School (73 First Avenue). The decision to move indoors will be based on the weather forecast. This decision will be made by camp team and communicated no later than 8:15 AM.  Subsequently our pick-up time may be impacted by weather. Parents will be notified of any changes throughout the day. This decision will be communicated no later than 3 PM.  Please ensure that your contact information is up to date to receive our messages! Each morning and afternoon we will update our website here

EBTKS, Pottery, and LEGO will move indoors to the Firehall on 260 Sunnyside Avenue. The sign and sign out for these camps will be at the Firehall.
