Outdoor Adventure/Wilderness Camps
Participation in WinSport’s Outdoor Adventure Camps (the “Program”) is subject to completion of WinSport’s Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreements (the “Waivers”) by the participant or their parent/legal guardian prior to the first day of the Program. PLEASE READ THESE WAIVERS CAREFULLY! By signing, you will waive or give up certain legal rights including the right to sue for negligence, breach of contract, or breach of the Occupiers’ Liability Act or claim compensation following an accident. In the event the Waivers are not completed, participation in the Program shall not be permitted and a refund will be provided.
Our Wilderness camps are committed to spending as much time outdoors as possible; we will only use indoor spaces if the weather presents a hazard to our staff and campers’ safety. Please bring clothes that can get dirty. If your child is not dressed appropriately for the weather, they may not be able to participate in their camp that day.
Please be sure to bring:
- A backpack that can be worn all day
- Sunscreen (please apply before arrival, and provide a bottle for reapplying throughout the day)
- Bug repellent
- Rain jacket
- Clothes that do not restrict movement and can get dirty
- Waterproof jacket
- Change of clothes
- Closed-toed athletic shoes
- Minimum two 1-litre water bottles
- Any required medication
- Pocket snacks, lunch (no microwave or refrigerator will be available)
When to Get Here
Check-in starts at 8:30AM with our camps beginning at 9:00AM. During this half hour your child will become acquainted with their instructors and other campers.
WinSport offers complimentary before and after care for your child when you sign up for one of our summer camps. Before care starts at 8am where your child can expect many fun games and activities before their camp begins.
To take advantage of Before Care, simply let your instructor know on the first day of camp.
Where to Park
Parking is free across from the Markin MacPhail Centre, next to the Canada Sports Hall of Fame.
Where to Go
Check-in will take place in the Performance Training Centre Field.
At the End of the Day
All camp groups will return to the Performance Training Centre field for checkout at 4:00PM. Your child will stay with their instructor until a parent or guardian signs them out by using the password chosen the morning of the first day. Please ensure that whoever collects your child knows the password.
If your child is aged 12 or older and you have signed the required self sign-out form, you will not need to be present to provide a password for check-out. Instead, our instructors will give the all clear to your child so they can leave camp.
As with before care, WinSport offers complimentary after care between 4:00PM and 5:00PM. Your child can will enjoy casual games and activities during the hour after camp. Please ensure your child is picked up no later than 5:00PM.
