Important Information

  1. At the time of printing the program guide, the 2024-2025 school calendars were not available for all school boards. Should any changes need to be made, the online registration system will reflect the right information.
  2. Refund Policy: Withdrawal from a week or a day of camp will be refunded if the Township is notified two weeks in advance. A $10 administrative fee will be applied for each $100 transaction.
  3. No outings have been scheduled other than going to the pool. Instead, we are planning to have special guests at camp every week. This will keep the registration fee accessible to all.
  4. No registration will be taken at the camp the same day. You must register online on the Thursday before the desired camp week.
  5. Only children who have reached the age of 4 can participate in the camp.
  6. Any child in diapers will be refused access to camp.
  7. If you register your child in the wrong age group, the Township reserves the right to withdraw your child from the camp. We will do our best to switch them to another camp depending on availability. A refund will be provided if no alternative can be found.
