Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is Laurus Summer Camp operating this summer?

Laurus is still accepting registrations for the 2020 season and we are still planning on having camp should we be able to do so. We genuinely believe that our families need camp and should things change in the summer months, we would love to see our campers, regardless of what that reality will look like. We are prepared to follow the government and health officials guidelines once this information is provided.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and hope to have more information for the summer months in order to make camp happen. As we get closer to summer, we will be providing new updates on this webpage.

Q. If the government mandates camp cannot occur, what financial alternatives are provided?

If childcare services are not permitted and we are unable to run our camp operations as scheduled, for families who have already paid and registered their children for summer 2020, we can offer the following financial alternatives:

• Rollover registration and paid camp fees to 2021. Camp fees can be used as a credit towards any programs Laurus offers, including March break 2021, summer 2021 and towards any Laurus offerings. Credit will not expire and can be used indefinitely.

• Donate some or all your 2020 paid camp fees to support underprivileged youth from low socioeconomic families and provide them with a camp experience.

• Refund of the registration with a cancellation fee. Refunds can be made in full minus the cancellation fee. We have reduced our cancellation fee from $75 per week cancelled to $25 per week cancelled.

Q. How do I cancel my registration?

If you would like to cancel your registration for this summer, please contact info@laurussummercamp.com and we will issue a full refund minus the reduced cancellation fee of $25 per week registered.

Q. How old are your counsellors and what training do they have?

Our counsellors have an age range of 17-27, they go through background checks, CPR training and are fully trained prior to the start of camp. We have a ratio of 5-1 (3-1 for juniors) of campers to counsellors which is a lower ratio than most other camps.

Q. Do the junior campers get to nap?

Yes! Our junior campers (age 3-4) have a nap time for 45 minutes right after lunch but parents can opt out if they wish.

Q. What do the kids do during extended care hours in the morning/evening?

During check-in and check-out and extended hours our campers are supervised in the gym for free play time.

Q. What Language does the camp run in?

All of our camps activities and games are run in English. Our counsellors however are all bilingual.

Q. Do the kids go to the pool?

We don’t have swimming or anything that involves the head being submerged under water as we feel the risk is too high. We do however have weekly water activities such as sprinkler, slip-n-slides and water balloons.

Q. Does Laurus accommodate children with special needs?

If your child has an aid during the school year and needs one on one attention, parents will have to provide a shadow to accompany them at camp.

Q. Where do we hire a shadow for our son/daughter?

You can visit this website. We would need a background check from the shadow

Q. How does registration work?

Registration is completed through our website, just make sure you have selected the correct location! You will receive a confirmation email once you have registered.

Q. What are the weekly themes that I see on your website?

Our weekly themes are incorporated into as many camp activities as possible all week long! Everyone gets to experience the theme of the week regardless of which STA you sign up for. Superheros, Under the Sea and Nature are examples of themes you can expect your child to explore at Laurus!

Q. Does your camp still run on holidays? i.e. Canada Day & Jean Baptiste?

Yes, our camp runs 5 days a week every week in the summer even if there is a holiday.

Q. What is your cancellation policy?

We understand that things come up and sometimes weeks need to be cancelled so we are as flexible as possible!

If you need to cancel a week a refund is made in full minus the cancellation fee. Before May 1st the cancellation fee is $25/week cancelled. May 1st and after the cancellation fee is $75/week cancelled. For March Break that date is February 1st.

If you need to switch a week in summer to another date that is no addition cost.

However, the deadline to switch or cancel weeks (and STA's) with a partial refund is the Thursday at 4pm prior to the week of camp. After this time no refund is able to be made due to cancellation or absence, as camp is 3 days away, staff are scheduled and materials purchased.
