The camp is located at Plattsville Church (19 Albert Street East, Plattsville, ON N0J 1s0)

Each day of camp begins at 9am with drop off starting at 8:30 am and ends at 4:30pm. There will be a charge incurred if your child is picked up late. This is to ensure that our counsellors are well-rested and ready to go each day!

Early drop off and late pick up will be available for $5 per day per child. It will be available from 7:30am – 5:30pm.

Your camper’s backpack should contain the following items:

  • Water bottle
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen/insect repellent (Self-applied)
  • Extra set of clothes
  • Sweater/sweatshirt
  • Lunch

All belongings should be clearly labelled!

Please refrain from bringing personal items such as electronic items (tablets, games, mp3 players), sports equipment or other valuables. Lockers are not available and the church cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged goods.

Please do not send money with the campers, with the exception of field trip days. There will be the opportunity to pre-pay for tuck purchases.

We will be providing snack and other cooking activities. If your camper has special dietary needs, please let us know in your registration form. We will work with you to try and accommodate all special dietary needs.

Each week we will have a different theme to explore with the campers. On Friday of every week, we will offer an off-site excursion.

A typical day is designed to keep your campers busy and having fun! Our schedule looks similar to this:

You must sign in your camper(s) in the morning and sign them out again in the afternoon with their counsellor. Each camper will be given a nametag with a unique code. You must be able to produce the code for a camper to be released from our care. Please make sure that the “Person(s) Authorized to Pick up” section of your registration is updated on your first morning.

There are no nurses on staff. You should speak with camp staff if medication is required.

If your child has an epi-pen or asthma please ensure proper medication is in their backpack with clear instructions on how and when to use it.

No refunds will be given for cancellations after June 30th. Cancellations prior to June 30th are subject to the $50 non- refundable deposit.

No refunds will be given for Camp days that the camper is absent and missed days cannot be made up.

Please note that Plattsville Church reserves the right to terminate the registration of any camper if, in the opinion of the manager, it is in the best interest of the camper and/or Camp. If the church terminates a camper’s registration a pro-rated refund will be considered.

Campers must be dressed comfortably and appropriately, based on the weather. For health and safety reasons, open-toe shoes, roller shoes and Crocs are not recommended at Camp.

We encourage your camper to dress in order to participate in each week’s different themes!

Any lost items will be placed in the lost and found, located at the check-in/check-out station. Just a reminder that the Church cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged goods, so please make sure everything is properly labelled to reduce the likelihood of lost items.

The tuck shop will be open every day for campers to purchase a snack. Tuck will have items such as chocolate bars, chips, candy, pop and some creative healthy options! We have a limit of $2.00 per day ($10 per week). Please bring money on Monday for registration. Any extra money will be returned at the end of the week.
