Welcome and Greetings from Unicamp!

Thank you for registering for our 2020 Children’s Camp season!

Our themes for Children’s Camp this year are:

Week 1 (July 5–11) Fractured Fairy Tales. Stories and fairy tales characters are all mixed up this week at camp. There are dragons in the dining hall, toad knights, and mythical creatures all around! Who knows who we’ll meet this week at camp. Imagination, storytelling, and adventures abound.

Week 2: (July 12–18) Wheel of Themes. Each day at camp we will spin a GIANT WHEEL to decide our day’s wild theme. Favourites from 2019 included Pride Day, Backwards Day, Winter in July and more! Expect the unexpected during this fun filled week. Do you have a suggestion for the wheel? We’d love to hear it!

Week 3: (July 19–25) Wizarding Week. Potion making, Quidditch Tournaments, Wand Building, Capture the Dragon’s Egg, and surprising visits from magical characters are some favourite Unicamp wizarding activities! Grab your cloaks and join us for the most magical week of the year!

Week 4: (July 26–July 31) Out of This World. Have you ever wondered what is out there in outer space? This is a very special week as Mike “the Star Guy” Cormier returns to Unicamp! Mike will once again be bringing his telescope and enthusiasm for all things space! Looking to the skies, we will explore, imagine, wonder and learn together! In addition to star gazing we will experiment with science, build model rockets, and journey to infinity and beyond!eking to explore the galaxies far far away…

Children's Camp Cabin-MatesAll of our Unicamp staff are excited about another great year at camp.  Something that can only happen with YOU here to join us.

If you have not already completed your forms or payment, please go online to your account to complete this.  We are loving the new online camp registration system! While there are a few tweaks we will be making to enhance its functionality, we are excited about how it has simplified the process, including your check-in when you arrive.

Our camping packing list is available online here: Unicamp Camper Packing List

Important Information for Smooth Check-in and Pickup:

Drop off times: Sunday, 2-4pm.

Pick up time: Saturday 1pm, with a talent show starting at approximately 1:30pm. If you are not able to attend the talent show please let your child know ahead of time as they often get upset once they see other parents arriving.

What to expect at check-in:

  • All paperwork and payments are to be completed online before arrival.  We anticipate this change and the online nature of our registration system will significantly improve our check-in process and speed.
  • Lice check.  We ask that you please carefully check your child for lice BEFORE arriving for camp, and take the measures required to ensure there are no lice or nits present on your child.  We will do a lice check when they arrive.  Please note: We will not be allowing on-site lice treatments due to awareness around our water system and the impacts of such products.  The “Lice Lady” Andrea has agreed to be on-site to treat your child without the use of chemicals for $80.00 per treatment.  This amount will be paid to her directly. We can check your child into camp once they are nit and lice free.
  • There will be a check-in table. Once we have checked your child in, we will let you know what cabin your child is staying in and you can go meet the counselor and get settled in.


Our focus is to ensure hearty meals and snacks for all kids. If your child has allergies, is vegan, gluten free etc, we will seek to accommodate and we also welcome you sending with your child some snacks or desserts that they prefer. We will also have a snack box available, including fresh fruit for those hungry between meal and snack times.

Please do not bring dogs to camp for drop off and pick up.  We welcome dogs on property during Dog Friendly Weeks only, in an effort to accommodate those with furry friends and those who have sensitivities to dogs.  Thank you for your help with this effort.
