  • Summer camp registration starts May 5!
  • Day camp participant information forms must be completed and returned prior to the start of camps. Forms are available at the link below or at customer service
  • Summer full day camps swim every day except for our field trip days (typically Wednesdays). Please ensure you send a swimsuit, towel and any other swim related equipment that your child needs.
  • Summer half day morning camps do not swim and afternoon half day camps swim on Wednesday and Thursday
  • All day camps will be using spaces inside the facility for games, activities and crafts. Each camp will do theme based crafts and work on some fun and exciting skills for physical literacy. Our camps aim to promote a healthy, active lifestyle so children should be prepared to be busy and active all day
  • Please be sure to label all items and send the following with your child daily to camps. We will be outside as much as possible, weather permitting
  • Do not send any money as your child will not be allowed to buy lunches or snacks during the day. This applies to field trips as well.
  • Please do not allow your child to bring toys, Pokemon cards or items from home. We cannot guarantee that they will not be lost or stolen.

Our day camps promote a positive, active environment. No electronic devices will be allowed by participants in any aspect of camp. Phones and all other devices must stay in backpacks until such time as participants have been signed out or have left our care.
