IMPORTANT: If there is any reason why you need to drop your child off earlier or pick them up later, WE MUST BE NOTIFIED BEFOREHAND, and we will try to make arrangements.

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

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 506-XXX-XXXX and let us know. If you arrive late, please stay outside in the drop-off area and call 506-XXX-XXXX 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. 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-XXX-XXXX when you arrive and a staff member will bring them out to you.

If your child is 12 years of age or older, and you would like them to sign themselves out of camp, please inform us and sign the appropriate section of the Parental Form (coming soon).

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.


A limited number of scholarships are available for students in financial need. Parents wishing to obtain a scholarship should initially contact us on (506) 458-7259 or musicamp@unb.ca.
