Things to bring:
Summer camp will be held outside for the duration of the summer! We will have access to the school should inclement weather occur, and for washroom use. Please ensure to always send your child to camp with the following items:
a water bottle
clothing for cool mornings and hot afternoons
an extra change of clothes in case things get dirty
a bathing suit & towel for water play.
Please ensure that all items are in a backpack or sports bag labeled with the child’s name.
**Please note, if your child requires any medication, an epi-pen, or an inhaler it MUST come in its original packaging and parents must give it directly to the Camp Educators and fill out a form before leaving. We cannot administer Tylenol or Advil without a doctor’s note.**
Peanut and Nut Safe Environment:
We ask that you DO NOT send peanut butter or nuts to camp with your child.
Pick up and Drop Off:
Creative Beginnings Child Care Centre has a face-to-face drop off and pick up procedure. This means that you must visually and verbally connect with your child's Camp Educator so they know when your child is arriving and departing for the day.
While at camp, it is expected that campers will act in an appropriate manner at all times. To aid in this positive behaviour we have outlined 5 camp rules and our Behaviour Tolerance Policy that must be followed:
Hands and feet must be kept to yourself at all times.
Speak to others the way you would want them to speak to you.
Do not touch things that do not belong to you.
Stay in the activity area at all times, Camp Educators must be notified if you are leaving for any reason (i.e.: bathroom break).
Follow the direction set out by your Camp Educators.
Behaviour Tolerance Policy:
Our professional Camp Educators will follow CBCC’s Child Guidance Procedure with children which includes problem solving and positive redirection. Therefore, if a child continues to impose a risk to the health and safety of other children or educators, their camp space will be terminated. There will be no hitting, kicking, shoving, spitting, stealing, or damage of another person or their property, or physical or verbal threats towards themselves or others while at camp. If this occurs, parents will be contacted and the child may not be welcomed back at camp at the parent’s expense. No refunds will be issued.
For any questions prior to the first day of camp please email our Extended Day Supervisor, Aimee Johns, at [email protected]
We are looking forward to a great summer!
