Day Camp General Information


As we all know, we continue to face uncertain times due to the global pandemic. Our goal is to run a safe camp program for Summer 2021. This MAY look different than other summers, as we explore our options.

We are committed to providing a summer camp experience for 2021. This may be overnight camp, day camp or the return of Medeba-in-a- box. There are a lot of factors that will go into this decision, so for 2021 we are providing a RISK FREE registration!

Log-on to your my.medeba account and only pay a deposit. This deposit is 100% refundable in the event that our summer camp plans change. We will be making a final decision on May 1st, with information from the Ontario government, the Public Health Unit and the Ontario Camping Association.


Sundays at 6:00 pm

Orientation & Instructional Activity Sign-up

During registration on Sunday, there will be a time of orientation for the campers and their parents, lasting approximately 1-2 hours. Discovery and Venture Day Campers will sign up for their instructional activities for the week and recreational activities for Monday at this time. It is important to be at Medeba for this evening. If this is not possible for your family, please call the office prior to the week the camper will be attending.

If a camper cancels day camp:

  • Prior to May 1st - full refund of your deposit
  • May 1st to two weeks before the program date - full refund, less $25 for administrative fees
  • Less than two weeks prior to the program date - fees and deposit is non-refundable, unless written explanation from a doctor is received, in which case $25 is non-refundable for administrative fees.
  • No refund will be made for late arrivals or early departures.

Medeba reserves the right to cancel any program or activity due to a lack of participants.

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

Health Care

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. Please fill out a medical form for them and return it to our office.

Head Lice

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.

Dietary Needs 

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.

What the Camper Should Know Before Arriving

Medeba is a smoke free facility. Smoking by anyone is prohibited.

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.

Behavioural Expectations

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.
