Before you register your child for a camp, it’s important to know:

  • All campers must be the appropriate age for the camp by the first day of camp.
  • As part of the program, camps may leave their facility to walk to nearby green spaces or playgrounds.
  • We do not recommend full day camps for children three and four years old, as camps are physically active and there is no rest time.
  • Children must be toilet trained, do not send your child in a diaper or pull up.
  • Send a change of clothes (underwear and pants) with your child daily.

To ensure the safety of our campers, we have put the following standards in place:

  • Day camp leaders are selected based on their experience, ability to relate to children, and leadership skills.
  • Leaders are certified in Standard First Aid and CPR, High Five® Principles of Healthy Child Development, and receive additional City of Calgary training.
  • Lower camper to leader ratios have been put in place for preschool and some specialty camps.
  • We offer lunch supervison for campers registered in a full day or two half-day camps. No pre-registration is required.
Edit accordion

For your child to have their best day camp experience, please make us aware of any needs that could affect their participation. There are times when a child requires more support than our ratios provide. In this case a day camp supervisor will request the parent/guardian to provide a support worker/aide to attend camp with their child.

Edit accordion

Pre-care and post-care are offered at most locations for an additional fee. Pre-registration for this service is required.

  • At most facilities, pre-care begins at 7:30 a.m. and post-care ends at 5:30 p.m.
  • Golf camps do not offer pre-care or post-care.
Edit accordion

Signage may be posted in each facility indicating drop-off and pick-up areas. Once registered read your receipt for more information.

Edit accordion

In the event that a parent or guardian is late to pick up the camper, a late fee may be charged. If you are going to be delayed, please contact 311 and ask to be transferred to the facility so that you can inform day camp staff of the delay.
