The safety of the campers is our primary concern at Kids Inc Camp. We have specific rules and policies that secure your child’s safety to the utmost extent. Our safety policies must be adhered to by staff, parents, and campers at all times. Failure to comply will eliminate our ability to serve your camper/s and camp family. Familiarizing yourself with the following points will provide you with valuable information on how, together, we can achieve a safe and secure environment for the children.
Please review this information for your own knowledge and with your children and all members of your family/support system who will be encountering the camp and camp staff prior to signing-up for camp. Failure to comply with the code of conduct will result in a verbal warning, suspension, and if non-compliant, dismissal from camp. In some cases the warning phases mention will be eliminated and removal from the program may be nessiccary. This will be decided on a case by case basis. Campers who are asked to leave Kids Inc. will receive a refund which is subject to a $25.00 service charge for each remaining session for which they are registered.
In cases where a camper or a camper family member has caused cancellation from our program we will provide a refund for remaining sessions whenever possible. Every effort will be made to get this mailed to you within 60 days of the end of the camp season in question.
Any person exhibiting behaviour that in anyway compromises the safety, security, or health of themselves, a fellow camper, or staff member will be removed from the camp immediately. More information about the Campers Code of Conduct is available in the Parent’s Handbook. You can access the Parent’s Handbook on our Forms and Documents Page of the web site.
Kids Inc. camp is a peanut-free environment. Please do not send your child with any peanuts or peanut products. If your child has peanuts or peanut products in his or her lunch or snacks he / she will be required to eat them in isolation from the rest of the children. There will be a call home in order to address the violation of our policy on this matter.
There are many other kind of allergies and we do understand that. We will do our best to work with you with regards to your campers allergies – however – please note that we are not able to guarantee that they will not come into contact with items that they may have a reaction to. You will need to send us all medications that can be used in the case of contact with an item that may cause a reaction.
We will also require instructions and information that will require in some cases for us to give you a call prior to the camp season in order to be sure that we have all of the information that we need. If you feel that talking with us would be helpful and you have not heard from us yet – please do reach out to our registration office. Thank you.
Contact with items that your camper may be allergic to can happen via touch, air, injection (bee sting) and ingestion and therefore it can happen at any time. Please note that sending your child to a camp program where your camper will be in contact with other campers who may have had contact with items that you camper is allergic to can cause a reaction. It is best to educate your camper how they themselves can stay safe with regards to their allergy.
Please also note that there are times that contact with such items are out of our control. It is imperative that we are in communication with one another and on the same page when it comes to working together with regards to our campers who have allergies. If you have questions about our policies with regards to allergies please contact us directly. Please fill in a medication form for all allergy medication that will be sent to camp for your camper. This form can be found in our Registration Package and/or in our Parent’s Handbook. You can get both of these documents on the Forms and Documents section of this web site.
Washroom breaks are conducted in groups with one or more Junior General Camp staff members present. The female washroom is always used for washroom and change room purposes for all Junior General Camp participants. A staff member will be present outside of the washroom stalls to make sure that everyone is alright and that proper hand washing takes place after washroom use.
Changing for swim time is done in a communal setting with all Junior General Campers male and female and our Female Camp Staff in the Female Change room. If your camper is more comfortable changing in a change room stall in a private setting they are welcome to do so – however – they will not be able to receive any assistance from our staff in the private area. If you have questions about this policy and how Junior General Camp Washroom and Changing will work please contact us. This way we are always in an area and in a setting with many care providers at all times. If you have questions about this please clarify prior to attending our program.
More information about washroom use is available in the Parent’s Handbook. You can access the Parent’s Handbook on the Forms and Documents Page of the web site.
If your child has sustained an illness or injury at camp we will follow the appropriate course of action which may include:
