Adventures Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to register early?
Yes! Our Adventures are limited to 13 participants. Don’t miss out on your child’s favorite adventures by waiting to register!

Do I have to pay extra for before or after care for Adventure Camps?
Adventure Camps run from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM. If you need care before or after that you must register for Before Care and After care for an additional fee.

When will payments be withdrawn?
Payments will be withdrawn from the account you provide on the Friday before care is given. If a payment is not made, then care will be suspended until the account is up to date. Payment for Adventures may also be made at the time of registration.

How do I drop off and pick up my child?
You will receive a Child Care Pass that you must show the Welcome Center when you walk in or you can scan your Centre Member Keytag. If unable to do either of these, you must sign a Visitor Log. You then go to the classroom, drop off/pick up, and sign your child in/out. At the classroom, a teacher will ask to see your driver’s license so they can ensure your child is going with the right person. This is for the safety of your child and must be done every time!

What does my child need to bring with them each day?
Your child should come with a healthy lunch, full water bottle, sunscreen, swim suit, towel and a sweatshirt if the weather is a bit cooler. Tennis shoes are best for all the walking and activities we will do. Additional items may be required for specific camps. You will receive this information in a welcome letter before the Adventure Camp.

Does the Centre provide lunch?
The Centre does not provide lunch. The Centre provides an AM and PM snack to Adventure Camp participants.
All participants need to bring a lunch and water bottle each day.

What happens if my child does not have a lunch or water bottle?
We will make sure your child has what is needed for the day at an additional cost. A lunch will be $5 and water bottle will be $1.

When will my child get their Adventure Camp shirt?
Your child will get their shirt on the first field trip they attend. Your child will get the size that you choose when you register. If your child has received their shirt and isn’t wearing it on a field trip day, you will be charged $10 and given another shirt.

What will my child do if it is raining or too hot?
If the weather is not cooperating, we will stay at the Centre for our activities. We will do group games in the gym and classrooms. If an alternate adventure is available, parents will receive communication before the group leaves the Centre.
