How do I know my child will be safe?

  • Your childs safety is our #1 priority!  Our camp staff are all certified with Standard First Aid/CPR and are trained by experienced leaders to ensure that we operate our camp in a safe matter.
  • Staff will treat minor injuries (i.e. nose bleeds/blister), complete an Incident Report for the illness/injury, and will provide it to you for your perusal and signature at sign-out.  You will receive a phone call from the Day Camp Supervisor for any moderate/major emergencies (i.e. vomiting/head injuries).
  • Day trips will include all campers wearing the same uniformed shirt that will have "In Case of Emergency" phone number listed and will be assigned a group leader and buddy system implemented to ensure that our youth are monitored carefully
  • Kinder Camp Ratio is 1 staff : 8 youth
    Voyageurs & Adventure Camps we aim to keep a 1 staff : 10 youth ratio, but this may change according to certain activities, outings and the age of the campers (Please note that our ratios are also supplemented with support from responsible, trained leadership volunteers)

What should my child wear and what should I pack?

  • Nutritious nut-free lunch including morning and afternoon snacks
  • Refillable Water Bottle (Youth will get thirsty during the day, therefore we suggest a refillable water bottle instead of juice boxes)
  • Ensure your child is wearing appropriate "play" clothes, outdoor shoes suitable for play (no flip flops), hat & suncreen and label all items
  • Pack your child's bathing suit and towel for the Splash Pad, suncreen, an extra set of clothes (just in case), outdoor attire including rain gear.
  • Please do not send valuables, toys or electronic devices to camp.  The Town of Penetanguishene staff members are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
