  • Lunch and snacks (no nut or shellfish products)
  • Re-fillable water bottle
  • Hat
  • Masks (2 or more)
  • Sunscreen (please apply some prior to leaving home)
  • Appropriate clothing for artwork and playing outdoors

Please do not bring any electronic devices or cell phones to the camps. Any devices found will be kept in the office until the end of the camp day. Your cooperation is appreciated.

  • A memory card
  • A USB cord (comes with your camera)
  • Extra batteries (cameras should be charged each evening)

During summer 2021, drop-off and pick-up will take place outside Memorial Hall on the UNB Fredericton Campus.

Important: On the first day of camp, please bring all forms filled out and signed, unless you have already sent them to us electronically. We cannot allow your child to join the camp if the forms are not submitted to us on or before the first day of camp.

Drop-off time is between 7:45 a.m. - 9 a.m.

When you arrive, you will see a large green tent beside Memorial Hall. Our camp staff will meet you there to get your children signed in. Please allow for extra time at drop-off on the first day.

If you are running late or your child will not be attending camp on a certain day, please call and let us know (506-453-4623). If you arrive late, please stay outside in the drop-off area and call 506-453-4623 (or 506-452-6360) and someone will come out to meet you.

Pick-up time for children is between 4 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Pick-up will occur at the same location as drop-off (i.e. the green tent). Please make sure to sign your children out at the end of the day.

If you need to sign your children out early, call us at 506-453-4623 when you arrive and a staff member will bring them out to you.

There is a $10 late pick-up fee for any time after 5 p.m. (within the first 30 minutes) and $10 for every half hour after.


Cleaning and sanitizing

  • All camp spaces will be cleaned and sanitized daily.
  • Deep cleaning and sanitizing will take place before and after each week of camps.
  • Children will receive a package of materials to use throughout the week that will not be shared with other campers. Any reusable materials in the packages will be cleaned and sanitized at the end of the week, before the next camp begins.
  • Frequent hand washing will be done throughout the day.

Camp bubbles and masks

  • Each camp will be its own bubble with a maximum of 15 campers. Each bubble will have 1 instructor and 1 camp assistant.
  • Masks will be required in all common areas, even when the child is with their camp bubble. However, masks are not required in the camp classroom.
  • Each camp will have its own designated outdoor play area.
  • There will be no sharing of food, water bottles, snacks, etc.
