2023 Registration and call for volunteers

The Grange Hill East Neighbourhood Group is a community-run, not for profit camp. We are dependent upon funding and a permit to use the school in order to operate. 

Community engagement is an important part of camp operations. If you are interested in volunteering to help make camp happen, please contact us. We could use help with camp registration, hiring, oversight and program ideas.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I register my children in the same week even though they are in different age categories?

Yes you can. Siblings/friends of different ages are welcome to join each other in camp, even if they are older/younger than the suggested age category.

Please note: all programming will be geared toward the category listed.

Should you have an young child wishing to join their older sibling at a camp geared toward the 7-11 age group, we ask that the older sibling be prepared to offer a little extra support.

What are your guidelines for independence/toileting?

Our programming is not set up to accommodate children who have regular toileting accidents (beyond the occasional, and somewhat inevitable accidents).

All children registered must be able to recognize body cues and use the bathroom/change clothing when necessary without assistance.

Children must also be able to apply sunscreen by themselves.

What does a typical day include?

A typical day includes: 

    • Outdoor field games
    • Craft time
    • Group activities/excursions to nearby parks
    • Water play
    • Breaks for snacks and lunch
    • Free play
We spend as much time as possible outside, but will have access to the community room for lunch/snacks and the gym for indoor games. 

What are your cancellation guidelines?

In order to receive a refund (minus a $25 non-refundable admin fee), cancellations must be requested by May 30th, 2023

Cancellations between June 1st and June 26th will receive a 50% refund. 

Refunds will not be provided after June 26 unless they are COVID/sickness related.
