The Town of Newmarket is dedicated to ensuring all campers have a successful camp experience. There are times when a child requires more support than our program ratios are able to provide. In these cases, we strongly recommend consulting with us about our support options.
Additional support is required if:
- Extra support is required at school
- A disability exists that could affect the safety of the participant or other participants
- Extra support is required at home for basic care
- The participant is associated with a support agency and/or program
- The participant has a safety plan with their educational institution
- There are behaviours to be managed (ie. biting, scratching, pinching, etc)
Families are required to complete an All About Me Package and provide an IEP and Safety Plan to help camp staff with any program adaptations. When considering a recreation experience, please consider the individual's needs, and that the recreation integrated setting may not be suitable for all persons. Health and Safety of participants and staff is paramount, which could result in participants being denied access to the program. This includes safety measures related to complying with COVID-19 Provincial and Regional Safety Guidelines.
To discuss camp integration and support needs for Summer 2022, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 905-953-5300 ext. 2821

To help serve you more efficiently and save time, we will be sending all camp paperwork through email. Prior to camp starting, you will receive an email to complete your child's camp paperwork. You will only need to complete this paperwork once for the entire summer! Camp forms can also be found below and emailed into email@example.com when completed.

We require all parents/guardians to sign their child in and out of camp daily. Parents/guardians should be prepared to show photo ID daily at sign out. You may choose to give your child permission to arrive and leave camp on their own on their Camper Information Form. The Town of Newmarket would prefer that children aged nine and under be signed in and out by a parent/guardian.
If your child will be absent from a day of camp please call the Camp Central Line at 905-953-5300, ext. 2825 or 2826. If your call goes to voicemail, please leave your name, phone number, your child's first and last name, and the camp they are attending. We will be sure to get the information to the proper camp.
A $2 late fee will apply for every 5 minutes that your child has not been signed out once camp has ended. Late fee payments are accepted online through your Quik-E Link account, or at your nearest Customer Service Desk.
