FAQs

Can I register for less than one week?

Participants are enrolled for week-long programs only. No discounted pricing or refunds are available for participants who attend for less than one week.

What are the language expectations?

Instruction in the Summer Program is in English. We welcome second language learners in English who possess basic conversational English skills. It is important that students can follow simple instructions in English to maintain program safety.

Each year, we have a number of participants who meet this level of proficiency and who thrive by being immersed in an English language environment.

What are the age requirements?

Most participants must be at least age 6 by the start of the week(s) in which they participate. Discovery Camp is for incoming K1, K2 and Grade 1 students (age 4–6).  Please note that we are unable to accommodate children age 3 and below in our Summer Programs, and participants in Discovery Camp should be able to use the bathroom without assistance.  We reserve the right to cancel enrollments of children too young or too old to attend our programs. 

Grade requirements apply to the grade level the child will be entering in the fall.

K1 = 4 years old
K2 = 5 years old
Grade 1 = 6 years old
Grade 2 = 7 years old
Grade 3 = 8 years old
Grade 4 = 9 years old
Grade 5 = 10 years old
Grade 6 = 11 years old 
Grade 7 = 12 years old
Grade 8 = 13 years old
Grade 9 = 14 years old
Grade 10 = 15 years old
Grade 11 = 16 years old
Grade 12 = 17 years old

Do you provide food?

As our camp day involves a mid-morning snack break and a lunch break, parents are requested to provide a packed snack and lunch for their children. For activities taking place at Canons Park, there is a very basic snack bar selling fruit, health bars, juice, water and ice pops.

There are no catering facilities at the Waverley Place campus (Basketball, Discovery Camp and Exploration Week programs). Unless otherwise advised by their teacher, participants should bring a drink, snack and lunch each day.

Can students bring money/valuables?

One purpose of our Summer Program is to build a sense of community. With this in mind, we request that participants leave electronic equipment at home. This includes iPods, iPads and electronic games. Students seen using these devices during camp time will have their equipment confiscated for the day.

Money to purchase items from the snack bar at Canons Park should be brought in small quantities only.

Are there rules re: dress and behavior?

Please dress appropriately for the activities. Shorts, track suits, sweaters and trainers are all suitable for sports-related activities. Layers of casual clothing are appropriate for all other sessions. Sunscreen and a hat are requirements for all attendees.

One objective of the camp is for students to have fun while learning new activities. Regular school expectations about language and behavior apply. We request that participants leave electronic equipment at home. This includes iPods, iPads and electronic games. Students seen using these devices during camp time will have their equipment confiscated for the day.
