(view google sheet)
  • How can I check my child made it to camp if I send them alone?
    Many of the older children ride to camp on their own, so if they do not arrive by 9:30am, parents will be contacted by phone.
  • My child is going to be late or absent one day, what should I do?
    Please phone Director Olivia Petroff at 416-819-4533. We do not always spend our day on site so it is important to call so a staff member can meet your child at the Balmy Beach Club if we are elsewhere along the beach.
  • My child requires special accommodations, how can I let the staff know?
    If your child requires any accommodations, be it for special needs, allergies, asthma, diabetes, or anything else, please email Director Olivia Petroff at sportscamp@balmybeachcanoeclub.com to set up a meeting to discuss how your child’s needs can be met. It is important to us that all children have the opportunity to enjoy Sports Camp without being limited by their individual needs in any way!
  • What level swimming is required for Sports Camp?
    Sports Camp goes swimming at the Donald D. Summerville Swimming Pool at least twice per week (subject to weather conditions). Campers are required to have Red Cross Ultra Level 4. Deep end tests and swimming are available but not required if a camper prefers to stay in the shallow pool.
  • My child’s bike is too small; can I send them with a scooter or rollerblades instead?
    Only bicycles will be permitted for children to ride to our various locations along the beach (the pool, paddling, Kew Gardens Park, etc.). Children are also required to bring a properly fitted bicycle helmet and wear it at all times while we are biking.
  • I plan to drive my child to camp each day, can I leave the bike overnight at the Balmy Beach Club?
    Yes! At the end of each day, campers will be instructed to unlock their bikes and staff will bring them inside our facility if you desire. Bikes must be taken home on the final day of your child’s enrolment at Balmy Beach Sports Camp.
  • What qualifications do the staff have?
    All Sports Camp Staff are local young adults who have a passion for various sports as well as working with children. Staff are 18 years or older and attending or planning to attend post-secondary education. All staff are certified in CPR/AED/First Aid and have completed a Vulnerable Sector Screening with the Toronto Police Service.
  • I am going to be late to pick up my child, what should I do?
    Please call our Sports Camp Director. A staff member will always be on site for extended care until 5:30pm. A $10 charge may apply for extended care if you arrive between 4:30-5:30pm.
  • My child wants to go home with another camper and their parent today, is that allowed?
    Children will only be allowed to be signed out by designated guardians as listed on their registration. If you want to allow your child to leave alone or with another parent/guardian, written consent is required to be texted or emailed from a designated guardian to the camp Director.
  • Since you are a Canoe Club, is my child required to have experience with paddling?
    Not at all! Sports Camp goes paddling (canoeing, kayaking, SUPing) twice per week (weather permitting) and all campers receive introductory instruction from certified paddling coaches hired by the Balmy Beach Canoe Club. Emphasis for this program is on learning the basics of paddling and having fun out on the water!
  • My child is enrolled in a field trip week, is there anything I need to know for the trip?
    We are very excited to offer field trips off-site this summer! If you are registered in a field trip week, a detailed info email will be sent to you prior to the field trip. Some important information to know before registering for trip weeks includes: 1. TREETOP TREKKING TRIPS - Treetop Trekking has a height restriction of 4'7" and an age restriction of 9+ years old on their high ropes and zip lining. Campers who do not meet this requirement are offered an exciting adventure through the Treewalk Village area and Discovery Kids Course. More information is available at https://treetoptrekking.com/activities/ 2. Transportation - All Field Trips include chartered school buses taking the camp to and from the off-site location. 3. Lunch - A packed lunch and snacks is mandatory on all camp days, including field trips.
  • What does my child need to bring each day to camp?
    It is absolutely mandatory that your child be sent with a full lunch and snacks for the day. There will not be opportunities to purchase food at camp. Campers must also bring: a swimsuit and towel bicycle and bike helmet sunscreen water bottle closed-toe shoes (runners are preferred, no sandals or crocs allowed). A baseball or sun hat. Swim goggles (optional but recommended) Quarters for pool lockers (to be submitted on Monday morning at sign-in) Optional – we offer jumbo-freezies for $1 per day at the end of each day. This is not required but we find campers enjoy a nice cold freezie after a day on the Beach!
  • I need to cancel a registration that I have pre-paid for, what is the Sports Camp Refund Policy?
    You will receive a full refund minus a 10% administrative fee up to 24 hours before the first day of your registered week. Any cancellations after the registered week has begun will not be refunded.
