Drop-off is from 8.45am to 9.15am
Monday mornings are special – that’s the day you will need to check your child in. What about all other days you ask? Curbside drop-off is an option from 8.45 AM to 9.15 AM! (Do we hear you gasp with joy?) 🙂
Pick-up is from 3:00 to 3:10 PM each day (unless your child is signed up for extended care). If anyone other than a parent will be picking up your child, please ensure that they are on the pick up list and ask them to bring their photo IDs for pick-up.
Late Pickup: We got this down! It’s a dollar a minute. Easy to remember and hopefully never used.
Yes, we are nuts, but we are nut-free! Please ensure that your child has the following everyday at camp:
A nut-free lunch.
A nut-free morning snack.
If your child is staying for extended care, please send a nut-free afternoon snack.
- We provide an icy treat to all children at the end of each camp day.
- Camp days are full of activity and children get hungry, so if your child is staying for Extended Care, please be sure to send an afternoon snack.
What should my child wear to camp?
Please ensure that your child has:
Casual clothing that can get dirty
Comfortable, closed-toe shoes
- (For Weekly camps only) On Wednesdays, we have water days for our weekly camps. Please send your child with swimwear under regular clothes, so changing is quick and easy.

Cereal boxes (or any other card – lots of it! any of it! all of it!)
Toilet paper and paper towel tubes

Important: Please do not bring any glass containers or styrofoam to camp to ensure safety and cleanliness for everyone on-site.
