What to Bring to Camp
Camp OC Rules
Okanagan College is fully operational during the summer months, which means we have many people coming and going on Campus. The campers are always supervised, but it’s important for the campers to follow the rules:
- Stay on Campus - campers are not allowed to leave the campus on their own. They need to be signed in and out or have written approval from a parent/guardian for other arrangements.
- People – such as your instructor, fellow campers, Camp OC staff and yourself.
- The facilities – such as the classroom, computers, cafeteria and trees and bushes.
- Have FUN!
On the first day of camp, please accompany your child to their designated homeroom. Parents and campers will meet the camp instructor and sign in for the day. At the end of the day, campers will be signed out and picked up at their homerooms.
To ensure the safety of campers at Camp OC, children in grades one through six will need to be signed in and out by a parent/guardian each day. If a camper is to be picked up by someone other than a parent/guardian, please include their name on the Parental Consent form and notify the camp instructor in advance.
If your child is biking, walking, taking the bus or have alternate arrangement to get home at the end of the day, please indicate that on the Parental Consent form.
Our Commitment to You
Camp OC is committed to offering your child a fun and educational experience. We will make every effort to ensure that your child’s camp experience is positive by providing quality content, instructors and facilities. If something is not meeting your expectations, please let us know as soon as possible and we will do our best to fix the situation.
If your child will be absent, please notify camp staff by calling the Continuing Studies office (see phone numbers under “Contact us”) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org It is the parent’s responsibility to make sure that their child gets signed in at the start of the day. You will not be notified if your child is absent from the program.
Note: Refunds will not be given for missed days.
To withdraw from a camp, contact us by phone, fax, mail, email or in person. Full refunds will be given if the request to withdraw is made at least five business days in advance of the camp start date. Requests made less than five business days in advance of the camp start date, will be refunded 50 per cent of the registration fee. No refunds are given after the camp start date or for days missed. Refunds can take between two and four weeks to process and will be mailed in the form of a cheque.
Behaviour and No Bullying Policy
Okanagan College expects all campers to behave in a respectful way towards other campers, camp staff, equipment, and camp facilities. Parents will be notified if their child’s behaviour is inappropriate. If the inappropriate behaviour continues, Okanagan College holds the right to remove the child from camp, without a refund.
Parental Consent Waiver
Please make sure you fill out and return the Parental Consent form electronically, at least one week prior to camp starting.
