““My daughter normally does not like to attend camps or activities where she does not know anyone. She was apprehensive to attend the music camp at Kid Zone last summer but ended up having a blast. The staff engaged her right away and she loved getting to know the musicians and band. She also loved being able to climb on the climbing wall. I am sending her this year for sure.” – Katie (mother of an 8 year old girl)

Financial Assistance

No child should miss a camp experience because of money.  That’s why we offer assistance to those whose financial circumstances would otherwise prevent them from attending camp.  Our goal is that every kids would be able to experience at least 1 week of camp in 2018.
 
Process
Families or individuals who require assistance pay what they can afford based a ratio of their total household income and number of children. This amount is determined in the application process based on a sliding scale.  
 
You will be asked to provide one or more of the following items for each person in your household:
  1. Taxable income based on prior year’s Notice of Assessment from Revenue Canada or prior year’s Income Tax Return
  2. In the case of those who do not file Tax Returns, please attach the last three pay stubs for those in the household earning income
Once your application is reviewed and approved, we ask that you provide payment as agreed to during the application process.
 
Lets work together so that every child has a chance to have a great camp experience, no matter what their income is!

Frequently Ask Questions

What time do I need to drop off my child?
  • Registration will open at no earlier than 9:00am and will close after 9:15am. Please make sure to drop off your child during this time period.
 
What if I need to drop off my child before 9am or pick them up after 4pm?
  • Before and after camp extended care is available for $60 per week flat rate.  Extended care is available 8:00-9:00am and 4:00-5:30pm.  Please pay at time of registration.
  • Late pickup after 5:30pm is charged at $1 a minute according to our clock.
 
What if I want to cancel a camp registration?
  • Cancellation Policy: To cancel your camp experience, notification in writing must be received no later than one week prior to the start of your camp in order to receive a full refund (minus the non-refundable $35 day camp deposit).  Written cancellations may be sent to camp@churchinthevalley.ca
 
Will my children receive meals as part of Kids Zone Day Camps? No (except for Cooking Camp)
  • We are trying to keep our camps as affordable as possible, so families are asked to bring their own peanut free lunches (except for Cooking Camp in which kids will be cooking their own healthy lunches – YUM).  Healthy snacks WILL BE provided as part of our programming for every camp.  Please notify us of any allergies or special dietary needs of your child.
 
Can I volunteer to help with the camp program?
  • Volunteers are a key part of keeping our camps affordable.  There is a application process including criminal background check and interview.  Contact us to find out more.  We reserve the right to accept, deny, change roles or remove any volunteer or staff at our discretion according to our staff policy.  Child safety is our first priority.  To learn more about volunteering,  email camp@churchinthevalley.ca
 
What if I want to register for a camp that is already full?
  • You can either register for a different camp that still has room or be put on a waiting list.   All  summer camps are capped at 60 children per week except for Sports Camp which is capped at 50.  First paid, first served.
 
What happened Sports Camp 1, July 3-6?
  • There is was a challenge in funding for that week, so we had to cancel that week.    Our actual cost for camp is about $300/child/week, so we can only run camp at $150/week if we get the necessary grants.   We do not have a grant for July 3-6, so we had to cancel that week.   
 
The camp facility is a church.  Will religion be forced on my child?
  • No.  All positive religious views will be respected.  This camp is provided as a community service by Church in the Valley and Acts of Kindness.  There will be positive character teaching from a Christian perspective including prayer and songs.  Theological teaching beyond “there is a God who loves you and has a plan for your life” will take place at our Saturday Church service, not our day camps.  There will be no unique SDA teaching at camp.  A summary of our teaching for each camp will be available for parents upon request.  Families desiring deeper religious instruction are welcome to contact us for in home Bible studies or to attend our weekly church services which happen every Saturday from 9:30am-12:30pm.   See www.churchinthevalley.ca  
 
Can I trust my child to your staff?
  • Our carefully selected staff is sensitive to the needs of the individual camper.  All full time staff are screened and oriented by our experienced leadership certified in CPR and first Aid.   Most staff are experienced in working with children.  We aim to have a 7:1 child to staff ratio or better.  All volunteers and staff must pass our application process including a criminal background check.  Your child’s safety is our top priority.
