Identification

For safety reasons, our Camp Policy states that everyone on the premises should be easily identified. Campers will be provided with a coloured wrist band and we ask that they wear it at all times.

All visitors (from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm) MUST report to the Camp Office to sign in and receive a “Visitor” name tag. Upon departure, each visitor must report back to the Office to sign out and return the name tag.

Lost & Found

Please remember to label all items for easy camper identification. Our Lost & Found Box will be located in the extended care room. The Camp does not assume responsibility for damages or loss to personal items. Please do not send valuables to Camp.

Allergy Alert

There will be children attending Camp who have been diagnosed with severe, life-threatening allergies to all forms of nuts/nut products. Due to the severity of these allergies, an anaphylactic reaction could occur from exposure to the slightest traces of nuts in any form, including smell, as some allergens are airborne. In order to maintain the safety of these children, it is Discovery Day Camp’s policy to prohibit all nut products at Camp. Please do not include any of the following products in your child’s lunch:

  • Peanut butter
  • Nutella
  • Peanuts
  • All tree nuts
  • Any product which may contain traces of nuts

(Please check contents carefully)

Lunches

Discovery Day Camp believes in eating a delicious and nutritious lunch each day. Please provide your child with a bag lunch, which does not require heating or refrigeration.

Lunch and two snacks are provided for our Full-day 3 year old campers.

A snack in the morning is provided to our Half-day 3 year old campers.
