Who can attend Kids Camp?

Kids aged 8-12 summer 2020 can attend. Kids who have turned eight by July 1st and have not yet turned 13.

When does camp start & end?

– SUBJECT TO CHANGE –

Registration is on Sunday, July 19th between 3-4:30pm. You will find the registration tables at the main tabernacle. Parents can help campers find their cabins and meet their counselors during this time.

Orientation begins in the Tabernacle for all campers at 4:30pm.

Parent/Guardian ID will be required at pick up!

Camper signout begins at 4 pm on Friday, July 24th. Parents will sign out their kids at the tables set up outside the main tabernacle and then join us for a short program. Campers will be officially dismissed from the Tabernacle at 5:00 pm and released directly to their parents/guardian. All campers must be checked out by 5:00 pm. Following this service, families can join us for a BBQ for $5 per person (campers are free). Please let us know when you register your child how many people will be joining so we can prepare accordingly.

For your information: 

You will receive a checkout sticker to present to your child’s counselor for them to release the camper to the authorized parent/guardian.

What does registration include?

Includes registration, food, accommodation, tuck shop daily and activities.

Outdoor Education, Paddleboard, Archery, Horseback Riding (beginner), Water Sports, Crafts, Team Sports

Can I call my camper? Can my camper call me?

All phone calls will only be allowed using the camp phone during camper phone time from 6-7pm nightly. These calls are only allowed to the number provided on the registration form. If you want to call your camper, please note they will call your back during that time, unless it is a family emergency.

If you would like to attend a service as a visitor please contact the camp directors and please check in at the main office to receive a visitor tag. When parents call or visit the camp regularly it can result in homesickness. If your child is struggling with homesickness we will be sure to contact you or allow them to call you. We want to make camp the best experience possible for your child and you are a big part of that.

I have two kids who are going to the same camp but are different ages. Can they be in the same cabin?

Cabin rooming requests can only be accommodated for same grade campers. Even so, rooming requests cannot be guaranteed. Opportunities for connection with friends, family members, cousins, siblings etc.  happen often through the camp day. If your camper has someone they would like to spend more time with (who is not in their same grade) we will endeavor to put them in the same team for the week.

Will there be a Tuck Shop?

Yes, it will be open once per day and campers will have a choice for 2 treats from the Tuck Shop at that time. The daily tuck allowance is included in your registration fee.

  • Backwards Day
  • Formal /Fancy or Prince / Princess

Feel free to pack an item or two, to enhance this theme. Be creative, but you don’t need to go buy anything new for the themes.

What if my Child has special needs? In School they have an IPP or Behaviour Plan-can they attend Camp?

While we are not a special needs camp we will do our best to ensure every camper/counselor has a positive camp experience. It is important that parents share the needs of their campers directly with the kids camp directors prior to registering for camp  amy@gatewayfamily.ca

The counselors and staff are volunteers with a variety of experience and backgrounds. If your child requires one on one assistance we may not be able to support them attending camp, if we do not have specially qualified or enough camp staff. We encourage you to have a discussion about your child’s needs in advance with our kids camp directors.

I have more questions?

If you have any further questions please reach out to the kids camp directors at amy@gatewayfamily.ca
