Camp staff will modify scheduled activities as appropriate for inclement or hot weather conditions in order to ensure the health and well being of all campers. This may include frequent water breaks, less physical activity and the use of more shaded and cooler areas at the camp locations. Campers are asked to dress accordingly for the weather conditions.
All members of WEE and WOW are asked to abide by the following principles:
v We respect ourselves, each other, and the natural environment
v Each person will contribute to the success of the group
v We are each responsible for our own actions
What to Bring
Parents are asked to ensure that your camper is “dressed for success” and comes prepared for an active day outdoors. We ask that a camper always come prepared with:
v Hat, 1 litre water bottle, sunscreen, and insect repellent
v Jacket or covering appropriate for the weather
v Running shoes or closed toe shoes are more appropriate than sandals for most of our activities
After the first day of camp, your child will be sent home with a program schedule for the week. It will include details on any additional items that need to be brought to camp on certain days. WOW is not responsible for lost or stolen articles.
Please pack a lunch and snacks as appropriate for an active day in the outdoors. Please bring a lunch that is peanut-free and litterless to help protect our fellow campers and the environment.
The safety and well-being of your child is our number one priority. When you register, please complete the entire registration and camper information form. At no time has any camper been refused admission to camp because of a medical condition. It is our belief that every child should have the experience of camp and that our camp ratios (1:10) will give everyone a positive camp experience. If for some reason our camp does not meet the needs of your child we would like to help you find a camp that would be more suitable for your child.
Ways of the Woods is not considered a nut-free environment, since our parks are open to the public, but we can assure parents that we will not have any peanuts or traces of peanuts in any of the food served at camp. Campers are asked to bring nut-free lunches and as a standard practice, all staff and participants wash their hands before and after lunch and snacks. All other allergies are dealt with on an individual basis. If you have any questions please call Mountsberg and ask to speak to the Camp Director 905.854.2276
