So, you have decided you want to send your child to summer camp? Great! Now it’s just a matter of picking the right camp for your child! How do you do that? We can help you ask the important questions:

How old is your child? 

The first step to finding the right camp is to find an age-appropriate one. Look for camps that specify what age groups they cater to, so your child is involved with age-appropriate activities and has a chance to engage with their peers. At Childventures, our camp is for 6-10 year olds.

What does a typical day at camp look like?

Knowing the daily schedule at camp will help you determine if it’s the right fit for your child. Childventures offers a good balance of physical activity, crafts, and excursions to keep your children ready for adventure!

Is the camp safe?

This is an important question to ask yourself before selecting a camp for your child. Your child’s care and safety is important and your camp should uphold certain standards in safety. Find out about counsellor-to-child ratios, who is caring for your children, what kind of transportation is used, and if counsellors are trained in first aid. If water lessons are planned you should find out if qualified lifeguards would be present.

How long should you send your child to camp?

This depends on your child. Some younger children may feel nervous about camp and one week is an ample introduction period. Other children can’t get enough and want to attend camp all summer long! Childventures can provide whichever option is best for your family! 

At Childventures, we provide fully qualified R.E.C.E teachers with first aid and CPR training, excellent teacher-to-child ratios, safe transportation methods and fully qualified lifeguards for all swimming activities to ensure your child’s safety.
