Summer Camp’s Discipline
All campers must abide by the summer camp’s discipline policy. Those who are unwilling to do so will be sent home. Malicious damage to camp property is to be repaid in full by parents. No personal food or drink items are allowed in the “tared” as per regulations set by the Ontario Ministry of Health.
Register at the camp office and hand all forms filled out in full to the Registrar. Once all the forms are handed in and the fee is paid you will get an admission slip from the registrar to give to the counselor. Locate your child’s cabin and counselor; give the admission slip to him/her. A weekly money allowance (we suggest $10.00) may also be given to the counselor for safe-keeping.
Kitchen staff and summer camp personnel are eligible for wages, plus discounted summer camp fees for their children. For further information please call:
