Inclusion Services

The Township of Scugog provides integrated experiences for eligible children requiring extra support. To ensure a recreational or camp experience is provided to as many participants as possible, a minimum of four (4) weeks’ notice is requested to allow adequate time to assess and arrange for program support.

You may need extra support if:

  • Extra support is used at school
  • Extra help is needed at home for basic care
  • You have a physical, medical, behavioral and/or developmental disability that could affect your safety or ability to participate

The Township of Scugog has the right to remove participants from a program if they cannot follow the code of conduct. The Township of Scugog Refund Policy will apply.

To make a request for inclusion services please contact the Recreation Staff.

Camper Code of Conduct

Each camper will be asked to agree to a code of conduct while at camp. Campers who are unable or unwilling to follow the camper code of conduct may be asked to leave camp to protect the safety of all participants. 

Communication

We will continue to use the communication app ClassTag for photo sharing and communication throughout the day. Once you have downloaded the app instructions on how to sign up will be delivered via email. ClassTag is only used for Summer, March Break and Winter Camps not for PA Day camps.

What to Bring

Campers should bring a nut free lunch, snacks, refillable water bottle, non-mark running shoes, and extra pair of clothing. All items should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. Personal belongings and toys will not be permitted at camp.

Sunscreen 

Please apply sunscreen to your child(ren) every morning before drop-off as staff are not permitted to apply sunscreen.

In the Event of Illness at Camp 

If a camper falls ill while at camp, they will be placed in a quiet room with a staff person and isolated from the rest of their camp group. The parent/guardian will be contacted to pick up their camper immediately.
