    How to find the best camp in Clarington for your child

    There are dozens of different summer camps in Clarington, and you might want to try them all! But of course you need to pick from among them. As you do, we recommend the Toronto summer camp expo, held every February.  The expo features many camps from Clarington and elsewhere in Durham Region allowing you to meet with camp leaders and current campers to discuss what each camp is like and how it will meet your needs and interests. It’s a great way to build a summer itinerary, and will also allow you to explore overnight summer camps. 

    Whether at the expo, or researching online, there’s a process every family goes through. Here’s an overview of how that works. Begin with a list of your wants and needs. Include the following: 

    • Favourite activities you enjoy and want to explore further. 
    • How far you’re willing to drive to bring children to camp. 
    • Any extras you need: after-care, support for exceptional needs, special diets considered.
    • Your expense limits.
    • How long you’re willing to go to camp. 
    • Day camps versus (the much richer experience offered by) overnight camps. 

    When choosing among different camps, here are some topics to consider and questions to pose:

    Practical matters

    • How does the camp’s daily schedule fit with your own? Does the camp have specific rules about drop-off and pick-up times? 
    • Do parents need to sign a waiver? If so, what is included in the waiver? 
    • How is the camp accredited? 
    • How does the schedule break down specific activities? How much of your child’s favourite activity will they be able to indulge in? 

    Matters of safety and discipline

    • What safety measures are in place? Make sure counsellors have police checks. Ask about how they deal with discipline issues. Ask about the ratio of kids to leaders.
    • How are campers grouped and led? Make sure you know how many kids there are in each session or program. Are they grouped by age, age range, gender? Be certain to meet and talk with the leader who will be responsible for your child. 

    Matters of food, drink, and diet

    • What are the rules regarding food? How is the camp mindful of peanut allergies and other food product restrictions? Are kids required or allowed to bring their own snacks? If your child has any special diet concerns, how will those be respected? 
    • Are kids encouraged to hydrate on hot days?

    Matters related to ESL and exceptional needs

    •  How does the camp provide for special needs? Are EAs or PSWs present? How will this impact your child?
