Is your camper group ready?

To support the success, safety and inclusion of all camps registered in Town of Milton camps, it is important that all campers are ‘group ready’.

Town of Milton camps are fast-paced with a variety of activities and settings such as gyms, arenas and playgrounds.  Typically campers are supervised with a 10 to 1 camper to staff ratio (8:1 for Kindercamps.)

Before registering for camps, consider if your child is able to do the following either independently or with extra support:

  • Follows directions and instructions from a staff person
  • Comfortable and able to interact in a group environment
  • Able to participate in the program. Participation in programs is based on the participant’s individual needs; however, it is asked that participants demonstrate the ability to participate in at least 50% of the program
  • Able to interact and participate in the program in a way that is safe for themselves and others

If you’re child requires extra support in a group setting, see our Inclusion page to view options.

Behaviour management

Every participant, together with staff, volunteers, and parents/guardians, contribute to the success of the programs and services offered by the Town. In order to provide quality programs and services, please be sure to read through the Participant Code of Behaviour in advance of registering for camp programs.

Inclusion supports at camp

Your child may benefit from inclusion supports at camp if they:

  • Require or receive additional support in a school setting
  • Have an exceptionality that could affect their safety or the safety of others
  • Require extra support at home for personal care such as feeding or toileting
  • Are currently associated with a support agency
  • Have a safety plan in place with their educational institution

Provide your own support worker to attend with your child

These staff receive general training on program adaptations, behaviour management and basic personal care; however most do not have professional qualifications in this field.
