Supervision and Safety
At the Island Summer Camp, the safety of your child is our number one priority. We want you to feel secure knowing that your child is in good hands for the week. Here is how we show our dedication to providing a fun and safe environment:
- Each group of campers is led by at least two staff
- At least three staff stay overnight, meaning that staff are available to support campers 24/7
- Staff are first-aid trained and certified
- Dorms are monitored with alarms during the night, which means staff are alerted if dorm doors open at any point
- The camp has a 24-hour custodial staff, a fire alarm, and sprinkler system. A fire drill is performed at the start of each week
- A fire station and paramedic/ambulance are located on the island, and are just a short drive away from our facility
- A public access defibrillator (AED) is located within the building
**We know that you might be just as excited about this experience as your child, but to ensure the safety of all our campers, please note that we cannot accommodate parent visits during camp**
The adventure begins when campers are met by our staff at the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal on the first morning of camp.
From there, staff will accompany campers on the 15-minute ferry ride to the Centre island dock, and then on the short 20-minute walk to our facility. A
At the end of camp, children will be picked up at the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, in the same spot at which they were dropped off.
