Summer Daycamp Pro Tips

With a super fun and sunny start to daycamps this summer, the kids and leaders have been having a blast. The first week has flown by with a great variety of activities, from face painting and rocket building, to trips to playgrounds and waterparks, to some quality time just playing board games with friends.

The following are some Summer Daycamp Pro Tips to keep the summer rolling smoothly for children and parents alike:

  • Sunscreen and water bottle - Send it! The staff remind the children multiple times a day to apply sunscreen and drink water. Forgot to send sunscreen with your child? Just ask a leader to borrow some camp supply!
  • Water shoes - Dry or wet, it's important to keep your child's feet protected. Pack some footwear for waterparks or beaches.
  • Food safety - Is your child's lunch perishable? If so, stick an ice-pack in the lunch kit to keep things cool. Warm yogurt is gross!
  • Waitlists - If a desired daycamp is full, always get on the waitlist! You'd be surprised how much movement there is in the registration system.
  • Be on time - Please stick to the program times for which you have registered. It's not fair to the staff or other participants if you drop off early or pick up late. Having to give warnings or charge late fees are the least favourite tasks for the leaders!
