Craft Camp

Welcome to Craft Camp! Craft Camp is all about getting creative - trying new things - and having fun. Campers entering Grades 4 through 8 will enjoy this program filled with variety, fun, and new and exciting crafty skills that will last a lifetime.

This program will introduce campers to many new and interesting ways to get creative and crafty.  We will explore our creativity using all kinds of resources and mediums.  Painting, pastels, fabric, yarn, wax, ceramics, clay, drawing, and more!  There is no limit to the variety that we will infuse into this program.  Our staff who work in the craft program have been carefully selected as they able to encourage campers at all ability levels to get excited about getting creative.  

We will have some special guests and of course we will enjoy some good old fashioned camp fun by participating in free time, recreational swim times, and on weeks that there is a Theme Day we will also be a part of that on Friday.  Read through this page to learn more about Craft Camp. If you have any questions about the program once you have read all of the information here please feel free to email us at registration@kidsinc.ca

Craft Camp is excited to bring crafty campers together as a community where they can feel safe and free to express themselves.

Join in the fun and embrace creativity this summer!

Campers will need to come to camp with an open mind and a willingness to try new things!

Our camp is 100% outdoors and therefore love for the great outdoors is helpful.

Lunches and Snacks

Campers will for the most part be packing their own lunches. We will be discussing healthy food choices that are ideal for campers to pack in their daily lunches and encouraging them to make their own lunch if they can. 

We will also be challenging our campers to try packing a garbage-free lunch as much as possible by using reusable containers rather than disposable packages. We will make some snacks as a part of the program – however – you will still need to send snacks, beverages, and lunches each day.

Pizza Fridays

On Fridays there is an option for Pizza Lunch! Having treats in our diet is a part of well-rounded wellness so if you do choose Pizza Lunch it will be provided to your camper on that day. You can choose to send a packed lunch on Friday too. Pizza Lunch and the option to participate is 100% up to you and your camper.

Safety

Staff Ratio:The ratio of care in this program is 15:1 and if your camper requires more support than that at a camp program we invite you to visit out information about accessing support while at camp in the services section of the Kids Inc. web site.

Aquatics: All campers will be required to pass a swim test prior to swimming in the pool without a life jacket and there is an appropriate number of Certified Lifeguard staff at the pool and pond at all times during camp hours. Important note that all pond activities are age restricted. See our handbook for more info.

For additional information regarding swim testing, please consult the Parent’s Handbook.

Sun and Bug Protection:Please apply sunscreen and bug spray every day prior to arriving at camp. Our staff is vigilant about helping your kids reapply during the day. So be sure to pack sunscreen (preferably spray-on,) and bug spray for your children everyday. 

WEATHER

We try to keep your children outdoors whenever possible. Our facility includes a large tented picnic shelter, shaded forest area, and our Junior General Camp shelter that are used for many activities. When weather conditions are too extreme to stay outside we will add walls to our tented shelter for extra protection from the elements. 

Please do keep in mind that we are an outdoor camp and we will do our very best to keep your child safe no matter what weather comes our way. We do ask that you check the weather and send your camper dressed accordingly. For important weather information CLICK HERE.
