Additional information

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, lease be sure to read through the Participant Code of Behaviour in advance of registering for camp programs.

Camp and COVID-19

We will continue to follow the COVID-19 Safety Guidelines for Camp as set out by the Ministry of Health. Staff will send communication to all campers prior to the start of camp with further information.  

Financial assistance 

We want to ensure that everyone in Milton has an opportunity to take part in our recreation programs.  Visit our Financial Assistance page to see supports available to those who qualify.

Inclusion 

We will be offering limited ICAN (Inclusion Care for Assisted Needs) spaces again this summer. The overall number of camp spaces has been reduced this summer due to guidance for summer day camps provided by the Ministry of Health and limited staff at this time. ICAN spaces will be available to campers between the ages of 4-13 years. We no longer require you to “reserve” a spot for ICAN. With our registration software you can now register your child for the specific camp and location you wish to send your child. Please ensure you are selecting the ICAN option of the camp.

Please note that the camp environment will not be the same as in previous years. At this time we are unable to go swimming, use splash pads, take trips, have a sensory room or have many sensory items. Emphasis will be placed on independent activities and activities where children can physically distance.  Maintaining camp “bubbles” is an important protective safety measure so participants must stay with their camps as much as possible. In addition, Inclusion Support Staff will be required to wear Personal Protective Equipment all day and participants must wear masks unless medically exempt. We encourage you to consider if this current camp structure will be a positive space for your child prior to registering.  The safety of all staff and participants is our priority.

Important: With the limited number of spaces, we expect our ICAN program to sell out quickly. If you have not registered for a program since August 2020 or are a new user, you will need to create an account in our new registration software before registering for in-person or virtual recreation programs. For more information, please send an email to our recreation staff. We also strongly recommend you wait list your child as occasionally spots do come available.

Late pick up fees 

There is a late pick up fee of $10 for each 15-minute period after 4:30 p.m. Please note that additional fees are not covered by financial assistance programs. 

Medical forms 

Please let us know about any medical concerns (medications, allergies, EpiPen, etc.,) by completing a Medical Information Form prior to the start of camp. When bringing medications to camp, please make sure to provide us with one day’s dosage each morning in its original container. EpiPens and/or inhalers must be brought in a separate fanny pack that all children must wear at all times. 

Staff training and qualifications

We hire role models. Staff are selected based on their experience and enthusiasm.

All staff must have:

  • Current first aid certification
  • HIGH FIVE® Principles of Health Child Development training
  • Current criminal record check and vulnerable sector screening
  • Completed all required in-service staff training before the first day of camp

All staff will be trained in updated policies and procedures related to hygiene, cleanliness and physical distancing in addition to receiving routine camp training.

Wait lists

Although we anticipate camps will fill quickly, we encourage you to place your name on a wait list, as people may withdraw their child for various reasons.
