If you are interested, please inform your Section Head on the Tuesday of each trip week. Parent volunteers are accepted on a first-come, first-served and rotation basis. Unfortunately, siblings of campers may not participate in field trips unless they are registered in the appropriate camp group.

Departure from Camp:

We take your child's safety seriously. Authorized adults picking up their children must physically sign out with their counsellor before leaving the camp premises. Only authorized individuals indicated on the child's registration form will be permitted to pick up your child. If you plan to have someone that is not on the registration form pick up your child, please send us a written request with the person's full name. In the event of an emergency, an authorization by telephone will be accepted.

Please be advised that for your child's safety, the day camp staff may ask for identification from any person picking up your child.
