FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ABOUT SUMMER DAY CAMP

WHAT ARE THE HOURS OF DAY CAMP?

The hours of our program are 9 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. daily.

 

Families can drop off at our Hub between 8:45 - 9:00 a.m. and pick up between 4:45-5:00 p.m.

 

If your family choose our complimentary bus to/from Orillia then the bus leaves for Camp at 9 a.m. (drop off at the bus stop anytime after 8:45 a.m.) and returns from Camp at 5:15-5:30 p.m.

Our bus stop location will be announced in June.

HOW DO WE APPLY? CAN WE CANCEL?

We use a Camp Application database called CampBrain. Please click the link at the bottom of these questions.

Families apply to Camp, we review your application and convert it into a registration if everything is suitable.

Families can cancel with a full refund, less a $25/week/person administrative fee, any time before the pay in full date of Wednesday May 8, 2024.

Applications Open Mid-February

ARE THERE CAMPERSHIPS (FINANCIAL SUBSIDY)?

Every year we do have some donated dollars that help offset families who need some financial assistance. Subsidy is limited.

If you are applying for subsidy for your family, you do not have to pay any deposit.

We also ask those people who can donate towards this fund to do so.

ARE THERE ANY DISCOUNTS FOR SIBLINGS?

There are some discounts available after the first camper from the same home applies.

For your 2nd, 3rd, 4th (?!) camper who applies, you will receive a discount of $10/person.

WHAT DOES MY CAMPER BRING EACH DAY?

We will provide a full list of things to bring in our June Family Information Package.

Typical items include:

Hat

WHAT LAND BASED PROGRAMS WILL MY CAMPER DO?

Our nature based programming is off-set by lots of other recreational programming like:

  • Climbing Wall

  • Arts & Crafts

  • Archery

  • Rock Throwing

  • Drama

  • Outdoor Living Skills

  • Sports

  • High & Low Ropes Courses

WHAT WATER BASED ACTIVITIES WILL MY CAMPER DO?

Campers do a swim assessment on the first day. This allows us to know each person's comfort in the water.

Beach Parties are a part of everyday.

Other days will find our campers at canoe, kayaking or stand up paddleboarding.

If we have the staff to lead it, we also may take our older campers on some sailboat rides.

MY CAMPER IS TOO YOUNG OR OLD. HOW DO WE GET IN?

Youth who are within our stated age range of 6-12 years of age in the calendar year of 2024 will have first priority for our limited spots.

Persons outside of these age parametres will be assesses in late March if there are still spaces open. Please email info@campcouchiching.com to get on this list.
