Frequently asked questions
Q: What makes Toronto Kidz Summer Camp different than other camps?
A: At our camp, every kid is recognized for their individuality and different interests. We have a genuine interest in their personality, preferences, and favorite activities. We are parents ourselves and understand how comforting it is to know that your child has a fun day making friends while discovering new things and building new skills.
Q: When will registration open for Summer 2024?
A: Registration will open on January 9th, 2024 - 10:00 am
Q: Are you running any programs before the summer?
A: We are! We have PA Day camps throughout the year and we also offer a Winter camp from Jan 2-5, 2024.
Q: How does payment for the summer camp work?
A: 50% payment will be due at time of sign up. The remaining balance will have to be paid by Feb 29th, 2024. As of March 1st, 2024, new bookings will have to be paid in full at time of registration. A monthly payment plan can be arranged instead if desired.
Q: What is the refund policy for 2024?
A: We are once more offering our 'Peace of mind' cancellation policy. This means you can still cancel any booked week until February 29th, 2024 and receive a full refund of the already paid fees.
As of March 1st up to 30 days prior to the start of camp, a $15 cancellation fee applies to each cancelled week. Between 29-7 days prior to camp, 30% of the fees are non-refundable and 6 days or less up to the start of the camp, 50% of the fees are non-refundable. Once the camp has started (Mon or Tue of the week), fees are fully non-refundable.
Q: What is the camper/counselor ratio?
A: The ratio is 6 campers to 1 camp staff.
Q: Is lunch provided?
A: No, campers bring their own lunch plus 2 snacks (one for the morning and one for the afternoon). Please ensure all food is nut-free.
Q: My child is 4 and turn 5 before the end of the year. Can they join the camp?
A: Yes, as long as they start Senior Kindergarten in September (born in 2019), they are welcome to join!
Q: Is Toronto Kidz Summer Camp associated with the churches where the camps take place?
A: No, we are different organizations and we simply rent space at the churches.
Q: Are entry tickets for field trips included?
A: Yes, everything needed for the field trips (transportation, entry tickets, etc.) is included in our regular camp fee.
Q: Are taxes charged extra on top?
A: No, there are no taxes. As a camp, we don't have to collect GST/HST. So, we don't collect them in order to keep camp fees as low as possible.
Q: How do field trips work?
A: We generally have one big field trip per week for which we use chartered school buses to take us to one of Toronto's many attractions. Our second field trip is our 'Park Day' where we visit one of Toronto's many big parks and spend most of the day there and use the splash pad. From most locations we walk to the park for that trip, from some we take a school bus.
