WHEN WE HAVE DAYS IN CAMP THAT ARE FULL WE CAN PUT CHILDREN ON OUR WAIT LIST IN THE EVENT THAT SPACES OPEN UP.
This camp is for children 5 to 12 years of age. ALL CHILDREN MUST BE 5 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME THEY ATTEND CAMP. We run from 9AM to 4PM each day with the option of early drop off (between 8 and 9AM) or late pick up (between 4 and 5PM) for an additional fee.
All Huronia Museum Day Camps end no later than 5 PM. We will allow a 5 minute grace period but as of 5:05 PM we will begin charging $1 for each minute the child remains at the museum.
The time will be determined by the camp counsellor present at pick-up. The payment should be made at the time of pick-up, and a receipt will be available the next time the child attends camp.
If there are any questions about this policy, please feel free to contact the museum any time.
All camp costs, field trips etc., are covered by the registration fee, with the exception of Pizza day which is an optional, purchase each Wednesday morning by those who wish to participate for $2 a slice.
There will be days that the camp reaches its maximum capacity so register early to make sure that you get your spot. Tuesdays and Thursdays always fill up the fastest! We highly recommend calling between 8 and 9 AM if you are hoping to do a last minute registration to avoid disappointment if camp happens to already be full.
Please remember, we cannot hold unpaid spots for campers. Registration is not complete until payment has been made.
As in previous years we will have field trips on Tuesdays (unless otherwise indicated), Wednesdays are pizza days for those who wish to buy a slice, Thursdays are swimming days, and Fridays we visit the library.

To register your child please fill out our Summer Jam Registration Form and return it to Huronia Museum along with payment (Please see below for methods of payment). For more information about Day Camp please call 705-526-2844
Payment must be made at the time of registration. No registration is complete until payment has been received. This means that without payment we cannot hold a spot for your camper.
Full refunds will be given for cancellations made at least 24 hours in advance. 50% refunds will be given for cancellations made prior to 9:15 on the day of attendance. No refund will be given if notice of absence is not received.
In the case of outstanding payments for more than 3 days, an invoice will be issued and sent to parents.
If your child is unable to attend a day that has been paid for payment may be transferred to another day, but only prior to that day being missed if proper notice is received.
We ask you to please read the following carefully to ensure that everyone has a safe and fun-filled time with us!
What to bring to camp
Please ensure that your child brings the following items to camp everyday:
• Plenty to Drink
• Lunch and Two Snacks
What not to bring to camp
The following items should not be brought to camp
• Money—Children are not permitted in the store during camp hours
• MP3 players
• Cell Phones
Due to the large number of allergies, and to ensure the safety of all campers, all Huronia Museum camps are peanut free! So please do no pack peanut products, as they will not be able to eat them at camp.
What to wear to camp
Because we are often using materials such as paint or food colouring as well as being involved in lots of physical activities, we ask that your children dress in comfortable, play friendly clothing and shoes. We will also be spending lots of time outside, so please dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
We also recommend putting your child’s name in any clothing they bring, as they may get mixed up throughout the day.
On field trip days please make sure to have your child to camp no later than 9:15 as some trips leave early.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at 705-526-2844 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
