DAY CAMP-colour

Parent Questions!

Where is the Camp located?

Camp takes place at Plattsville Church. 19 Albert St E Plattsville ON.

What time does camp start and End? Do you provide extended care?

Each camp begins at 9am with drop off starting at 8:30 am and ending at 4:30pm. Before and after care is not available at this time. There will be a charge incurred if your child is picked up late. This is to ensure that our counsellors are well rested and ready to go each day!

What should my camper bring to Camp?

Your camper’s backpack should contain the following items:

  • Water bottle
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen/insect repellent (Self applied)
  • Extra set of clothes
  • Seater/seatshirt
  • Lunch

All belongings should be clearly labeled!

Please refrain from bringing personal items such as: Electronic items (tablets, games, mp3 players), sports equipment or other valuables. Lockers are not available and the Church cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged goods.

Please do not send money with the campers, with the exception of field trip days. There will be the opportunity to pre-pay for Tuck purchases.

We will be providing snack and other cooking activities. If your camper has special dietary needs, please have them pack their own food items for snack.

What will a typical week of camp involve?

Each week we will have a different theme to explore with the campers. On the Friday of every week we will offer an off-site excursion such as: Skyzone, Children’s Museum, African Lions Safari, Storybook Gardens.
