Your Child’s Safety All Sport & Wellness Summer Camp Head Coaches are certified in First Aid and CPR to ensure a top quality experience for your child. During staff training, all emergency procedures for the College and camp are thoroughly reviewed. As well, the department conducts regular risk management audits on all camp equipment and polices. Procedures that include custody arrangements, child abuse, behavior modification, weather conditions, and the self-esteem of your child are covered in training. We also enforce strict sign-in and sign-out policies. Please note that campers 11 years of age and under cannot leave the care of an instructor until a parent/guardian signs that child out. A child 12 years and older may leave on their own. If you would prefer that your child who is 12 years or older remains in the care of the instructors until a parent/guardian arrives, please indicate this on the registration sheet or by calling 403.529.3834 in advance of the camp start date. What to Wear and Bring to Camp All children should wear comfortable clothes including shorts, t-shirt, and running shoes suitable for physical activity. For cool days, a sweatshirt. It is strongly recommended and enforced that children wear hats while outdoors to shade their heads from the sun and wear sunscreen.

Campers will eat their lunches on the upper level of the Medicine Hat College Cafeteria, which is an air conditioned area. Campers have the option of bringing their own lunch or buying their lunch from the cafeteria. Lunch time transition and morning to afternoon camp transition are fully coordinated by camp staff. Food Allergies We are a nut free camp, and we request that campers do not bring any foods that contain nuts, i.e. peanut butter or granola bars. If consuming nut products prior to arriving at camp, please wash hands diligently. If your child has any food allergies, we ask that you note them on your child’s registration form, and we will make every attempt to accommodate their needs.

If campers have not been picked up by 4:15pm, a charge of $5 per 15 minutes will be enforced.
