CWELCC is an incredible program that has the goal of offering childcare for a low average cost. However this program is only applicable for daycare centres and unfortunately we are not part of the childcare system. The Before and After Care program we offer is supplementary to the camp programs we offer and can be purchased for parents that require an early drop off or late pick up.

We offer a $50 coupon per one family referral. Referrals will be handled in June once registrations have closed.

There is no maximum.

Parents can purchase a one-time lunch order or they can order lunch for their child for every week. Please confirm these choices during your application so you are provided an accurate total when it comes time to confirm payment. We offer healthy choices of snacks, including fresh vegetables and fruits. For lunch, we offer sandwiches on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and pizza on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
  • For sandwiches, campers can choose from turkey, ham, roast beef, veggie, or tuna sandwiches
  • For pizza, campers have the choice of cheese or pepperoni pizza

Food is available for purchase on site however we only offer snacks (bags of chips) and bottles of water for cash purchase.

Our camp groups are divided into 1 counsellor per 5 children.

Usually, if the student is below 5 years of age, our camp director will need to do an assessment before the approval. Please sign up your child and we will contact you for the assessment.

Excellent question–you can choose either one! This is a matter of personal preference based on which experience you think your child would enjoy more. Our Junior Camp will be more focussed on social activities and building relationships with new friends, whereas our Senior Camp will involve social games but place more emphasis on academic materials.

In short, yes. We offer different activities for the different age groups. For instance the younger campers will have a focus towards social activities and building relationships with new friends, they will also have workbooks and other course material that are appropriate for their skill level. The older groups focus more on having an enhanced camp experience which involves social games but a larger focus on the materials they are learning in school. The older group will have more opportunities to explore topics they have learned/ will learn in a collaborative way to not only help develop soft and social skills but to have them prepared for the upcoming school year as well.

 

In terms of schedule there might be small differences depending on if it is an event day or not. Overall, we will have similar lunch and snack breaks to allow younger campers to socialize with the older group in case there is a sibling or friend they wish to eat with. This allows them to enjoy the work they do in camp knowing they can reconnect with their familiar relationships for lunch or snack.
