    Questions you might consider

    Our Kids has worked with Ottawa camps for many years now. Here are some things we advise parents to look for and think about as they are choosing a camp:


    Ask camps if counselors all have police checks. Do counselors have any special training in dealing with conflict resolution? How do they ensure that the camp environment is safe for every child within the camp?

    Structure and organization

    Find out how kids are grouped together during camp activities. Are kids grouped by age? Gender? And what is the ratio of counselors to campers?  Can you meet with the group leader who will be spending the most time with your child(ren)?

    Day-to-day camp environment

    Be sure that you schedule pickups and drop offs as the camp requires. What are kids required to bring to camp? Where will the camp be held? Are there outings, and how are those managed?

    These are just some of the many things you need to know
