Summer Day Camps
Pre & Post Camp
Regular camp hours are 9:00 am-4: 00 pm. To accommodate an earlier drop off and/or later pick up time for parents we do offer pre and post camp care for a fee. You must pre-register for this option to ensure proper staffing/child ratios are met. Registration is available online.
Hot Lunch may be ordered online up to 24 hours prior to the required day. Please note that our hot lunch consists of a main course with veggies/dip or fruit and a drink. You will need to pack a dessert, extra drinks and snacks to round out the food for the day.
An informed consent and emergency contact form must be filled out online and submitted electronically through our website. Children who do not have a signed form on file are not permitted to attend day camp programs. These forms are only required to be filled out once (unless information changes) for the 2022 Day Camp season and will be kept on file.
What to Bring
Please provide a backpack for your child to carry their belongings in and clearly label items with your child’s name. Lost and Found items will be kept at the Guest Services area for a month and will then be donated.

Field Trip Days
Every Wednesday school age camps will have a field trip to the Okotoks Recreation Centre. Camps with children ages 5-8 will enjoy an afternoon at the Splash Park and camps with children ages 9-12 will go swimming in the pool during public swim. There will be no exceptions to the age breakdowns so please be sure your child is aware of their particular activity.
** Preschool (3-5 years) camps require bathing suit and towel on Tuesday’s (am camps) and Wednesday’s (pm camps) but will not be leaving the premises. Outdoor activities around the field house will be enjoyed.
Families should put sunscreen on their children before they arrive at camp. Children may spend time outside for activities, snacks or after care and should have appropriate sun protection. Please put extra sunscreen in your child’s backpack for use during the day. Approximately every 3 hours, at lunchtime and at the beginning of after care, we will reapply spray sunscreens provided by the families to children from the neck down. For the safety of staff and children day camp staff will not use their hands to apply cream sunscreen to children. Since spray sunscreen cannot be applied to the face, students should bring a sunhat or learn how to use apply sunscreen to their face by themselves. All sunscreen should be clearly marked with the child’s name.
Please Note: An informed consent and emergency contact form must be filled out online and submitted electronically through our website. Children who do not have a signed form on file are not permitted to attend day camp programs.

Day Camp Age Groups
We will make every effort to maintain the age groups specified, however, we do reserve the right to combine age groups within specific camp themes if necessary. Preschool and School Age camps will not be combined other than during snack and lunch breaks.
Children with Special Needs/Aides
All children are welcome and encouraged to participate in our day camp programs and we strive to provide an environment that will enhance community inclusion while creating awareness and acceptance of different abilities.
Please note: children requiring an aide at school must have an aide during camps. Coordination is the responsibility of the family. Aides must be ready to take an active role with your child in all activities.
