CAMP RULES AND REGULATIONS
It’s very important to carefully read all the information below, beforehand, in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Even if you are familiar with the camp program, new rules and regulations are added every year.
HOW THE GROUPS ARE FORMED
The groups-between 10 and 14 campers-are formed by computer, according to the children's birth dates, and may not be changed; nevertheless, all the children are on the same premises, have lunch together and go to the pool together.
From Monday to Friday, campers are asked to arrive between 7 a.m. and 8:45 a.m.. When they arrive by bike (we recommend a helmet) they will need to have a padlock at all times, in order to lock it.
Campers' day will end between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Campers who return home by bike will be able to leave starting at 4 p.m., unless you give us other notification. You will have to notify the leader in charge of attendance that your child is leaving camp for the day. If your child must leave camp early on a particular day, a form must be filled out that same morning. Unless we receive written notice from you, only the person(s) authorized can come and pick up your child(ren). At day camp 6-10, for every additional 15 minutes after 6 p.m., there will be a $5 charge per child, which must immediately be paid to the leader on duty.
It is parents' responsibility to make sure that their child(ren) arrive at the camp and to ensure that a leader takes charge of their child(ren). Any absence will be considered to be a justified absence, to the parents' knowledge. Camp personnel and the Town assume no responsibility for any absence.
All belongings must have a name tag on them, ESPECIALLY DAY CAMP T-SHIRTS (for camp 6-10). Comfortable shoes: sneakers (please avoid sandals). Comfortable clothing, according to the temperature: pants or shorts (please avoid skirts and dresses). And a raincoat and boots in case of rain. At all times, campers must bring sunscreen, a hat, swimsuit, beach towel and bottle of water. Since campers will be doing arts and crafts, make sure they wear clothing that they won't risk staining or have them bring an apron or an old shirt. Please apply campers' first layer of sunscreen at home, as such lotions often take half an hour to provide protection. Your child will have to bring his swim attire with him for swim periods.
Every day, campers must bring their lunch, preferably in a knapsack (no plastic bags with handles). Please make sure lunches contain healthy foods (fruits, vegetables, cheese…). Avoid candy and sweets. There is no microwave oven available for hot meals, so campers must bring a cold lunch. Campers are strictly forbidden to bring bottles and breakable glasses or sharp objects.
MONEY AND PERSONAL ITEMS
It is prohibited to bring money to day camps and campers who do so may have theirs confiscated, even on outings unless notification to the contrary. Moreover, electronic games, cellular and other personal items are prohibited as well. The day camp and CLUB 11 + will at no time be held responsible for lost, stolen or damaged articles.
A number of campers are allergic to nuts and/or peanuts. We therefore ask you to avoid putting this food into your child’s lunchbox. Even if you have identified an allergy on your child’s medical form, and if it is a serious allergy, we suggest that you notify the camp counsellors on monday morning.
Campers will go to the municipal pool during the afternoon, depending on the weather. They will come back for their extended supervision at 4 p.m. Under no circumstances may you pick up your children at the pool, unless you have given your child’s camp counsellor written notification that morning of your intention to do so. Campers whose parents fail to comply with this rule run the risk of being expelled without any refund.
Campers who need to take medication must bring a note, signed by a parent, on which the dosage is mentioned as well as the reason why the child needs to take the medication.
WHERE, WHEN, HOW?
Check out the Town's Internet site on the Home page – Activities and recreation - under "Day camps". On the Thursday before the week you have selected, you will be able to get all the information you need there, so that you won't forget anything.
