Dress up Days
For Blast and Discovery Day Camps, the campers are invited to participate in a dress up day that is based on the theme for that week. You will recieve more information about this during the day camp week.
Health Care and Special Dietary Needs
When campers register on Sunday evening, parents/guardians are required to provide Medeba with a day phone number in case of sickness or an emergency. If a day camper needs any kind of medical attention we will call the parent/guardian who will be required to pick up the camper. In case of emergency where the camper needs to go to the hospital, Medeba will make arrangements and then will call the parent/guardian.
If campers require medications while at camp we would ask that you bring enough for the whole week on Sunday evening. Medications will be administered by our Health Care Coordinator.
If a day camper is found to be with head lice we will ask the parent to make arrangements to pick up the camper. The camper may return when the head lice has been treated.
Provision is made for campers with allergies or special dietary needs. Please fill out the Restricted Diet Form and return it to the office. We provide children friendly meals with lots of choice, but do not cater to picky eaters.

Medeba does not permit gum-chewing on property.
Medeba is an allergy aware facility. Please do not bring any products with nuts or that may contain nuts.
Cell Phones, MP3 player, Tablets, Laptops, Gaming devices
Medeba desires to develop a healthy camper community. Personal devices take away from a camper fully immersing in our community and therefore the above-mentioned devices are not permitted.
Campers are expected to treat one another respectfully, without put downs or rough horse play. Medeba strives to resolve behavioural problems with campers promptly and effectively but reserves the right to dismiss a camper for behavioural problems at the discretion of the Directors. No refund will be made for dismissals due to disciplinary action. Parents will be responsible for the removal of the camper due to dismissal.
