Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What are the ages for junior and senior camp?

A. Campers ages 4-6 are typically in junior camp, and those aged 7-11 are typically in senior camp. It is more dependent on grade, however. Children going into Junior Kindergarten, Senior Kindergarten and grade 1 are in junior camp and children going into grades 2 – 6 are in senior camp.

Q. How much are junior and senior camp together during the day?

A. Junior and senior camp are together for about half of the day. We keep them together whenever possible. Often times they will do the same activity, but they participate at their own pace.

Q. Can I request my child(ren) be in the same group with a specific friend?

A. Yes, and we will accommodate the request so long as they are both in junior camp or both in senior camp, and the age difference isn’t too great (E.g. We may not put a 7 year old with an 11 year old).

Q. What does my child need to bring to KidQuest Camp?

A. In order to help your child have a fun and safe day please ensure that your child brings the following in their backpack each day:

  • Lunch (if a lunch has not been ordered  with your registration )
  • Hat
  • Spray sunscreen
  • Refillable water bottle (pre-filled with water!)

Please send your child in running shoes every day, not in sandals or other open-toed shoes. Since the program is quite active and many things happen outside, this will help to prevent stubbed toes and blisters.

WEDNESDAY is Trip Day (except for August 5), so camp T-shirt, swimsuit, towel, and packed lunch/snacks are required (in addition to regular daily items).

FRIDAY is Water Day, so swimsuit +/- water top, towel and extra change of clothes are required (in addition to regular daily items). Flip flops may be brought in their back packs.

PLEASE LABEL EVERYTHING THAT YOUR CHILD BRINGS WITH BOTH FIRST AND LAST INITIAL.

Q. What are the regular hours for KidQuest Camp?

A. Camp runs from 9am – 3:30pm. Drop off and sign in your child(ren) between 8:45-9am unless morning extended care has been selected. Pick up and sign out your child(ren) between 3:30 – 3:45pm unless afternoon extended care has been selected.

Please note that on WEDNESDAY Trip Days (all but August 5), all children must be signed in by 9am so that they do not miss the bus.

Q. What are the extended care hours for KidQuest Camp?

A. Extended care is an additional charge and must be selected and paid for ahead of time.

  • Before care is from 7:30am – 9am ($3/day).
  • After care is from 3:30pm – 5:30pm ($5/day).

Q. How can I pay for KidQuest Camp?

A. Payments are made through our online registration system via echeck. A non-refundable deposit of $20/week per child must be paid with registration. FULL payment of the remaining amount for each week is due at least one month in advance:

  • Weeks 1-4 (July) are due on June 1
  • Weeks 5-8 (August) are due on July 1

**This is a change from previous years**.

If full payment is not received by the due date, your deposit will be forfeited and your child’s spot will be given to someone on our waitlist.
