What should my child bring to the camps?
Our programming takes place outside as much as possible. We don't let the weather keep us indoors. To make sure that your child has the best possible experience at camp, please be sure to send them with the following items:
- Extra snacks and a refillable water bottle; we work up a good appetite every day! Litter free is best.
- Closed-toed footwear
- Raincoat, splash pants and boots
- Coat, warm hat and mittens (for cold days)
- Sun hat and sun screen
- Rain gear, just in case!
- A full change of clothes and shoes.
Please check the weather each day and make sure that your child is prepared for the outdoors. Please label all belongings.
Where do I register, and who can I contact with questions?
After registering (register here) you will be sent a camp information package. This will hopefully answer all your questions but if you have any specific questions feel free to email ShadesMillNC@grandriver.ca.
What is the refund policy?
Full refunds will be granted if requested 7 days before the program. Refunds requested after that time will be subject to a $25 administration fee.
