We may not be able to be at camp together this summer, but you can still bring a little bit of camp home with you with Medeba-in-a-box!

 

What it looks like:

Summer Camp is about connection. That's why we wanted to be able to bring a bit of Summer Camp home. It may seem strange to be using technology at Medeba, but we want our campers to have a chance to interact, to do some fun activities and to bring some of the spirit of camp into a week of their summer!

This program is designed for 8-12 year olds. It will still require parental supervision, depending on your child's age and ability. We will be in contact with more information as it comes.

The cost is only $69+HST! And $59+HST for additional boxes in the same week for siblings.

Safety is still our priority! Read below for details on how we plan to keep your children safe while on our online platforms.

At-home Activities

We'll be sending home instructions for 2 exciting at-home activities for each day! Our goal is to make these as fun and engaging as possible. In the box, there will also be supplies for some of the activities and more Medeba-themed fun.

Cabin Time

Cabin Time is going to be a great way for your kids to connect with other kids and past staff. We know that its been difficult staying at home and that your kids just want to hang out with other kids. We'll create cabin groups for the campers to be able to hang out and have some fun!

Safety is a priority!

 

Your child's safety is still our priority. We have done our research and have planned a few things to ensure that Medeba-in-a-box will safe and fun! Here are a few of them:

Each week will have a private Facebook group and the campers enrolled in that week will be sent an invitation.

For any online meeting, there will be check-ins to ensure we know everyone attending. Each meeting will also include a minimum of 2 trained staff for facilitation and supervision.

We will be sending out clear guidelines for online use, so everyone will be on the same page before we start the program.

Please let us know if you have any feedback or ideas to make Medeba-in-a-box even better! This is new for us too! Please have patience for us as we figure out the details.
