Fun for EVERYONE. Day camps offer a fun and safe environment for kids from ages 5-12 to experience a variety of outdoor physically distanced activities with a focus on fun, making friends, arts and crafts, sports, and camp games.
Registration for Summer 2022 camps is open as of March 1, 2022. Browse and register available camp offerings via play.barrie.ca.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, City of Barrie camps have introduced several new safety procedures.
Detailed information will be shared with all registrants prior to the start of camp. Our camps will be following the camp guidelines released by the Ontario Ministry of Health and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit. Caregivers will receive an email prior to camp to review these procedures.
If the City of Barrie Day Camps are cancelled under the direction and guidance of the Province of Ontario and/or the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, full refunds will be issued to registrants.
Our staff to participant ratios reflect our commitment to quality program supervision. Our camps operate with a ratio of 1 leader for every 10 campers. All staff are certified in First Aid, CPR C and require a criminal reference check. In addition they are trained to interact with children in a positive and developmentally appropriate manner as all camp staff are certified in the HIGH FIVE - Principles of Healthy Child Development.
The goal of the City of Barrie Day Camps is to ensure all campers have a rewarding, memorable, safe and fun experience while participating in our program. Providing a safe environment is a collaborative process. We ask that parents/guardians share the following camp rules/guidelines with their child/ren:
If the above guidelines cannot be met, our Fair Play Follow Up process will be implemented. Parent conferences may be required to address concerns at any step in this system.
Physical aggression towards another person or oneself may require a temporary or full suspension from camp(s).
Sometimes you need a little flexibility! For age override requests and camp transfers please email Recreation.Information@barrie.ca.
Cancellation of a camp prior to the start of the program is a possibility, if requested. In these cases you are eligible to receive a full refund minus a $15 administration fee. Please email Recreation.Information@barrie.ca for more information.
Campers 10 years of age and under MUST always have adult supervision during morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Please ensure that regular escorts and emergency contacts are recorded with your registration. Only those adults listed will be permitted to pick up your child(ren). Please notify the staff team if your child will NOT be attending camp that day, or of any change in your child’s pick-up routine. Children are NOT allowed to leave the program without written consent from a parent or guardian. A late fee of $5/15 minutes will be charged for late pickups.
Participants experiencing disability and other participants with support needs that are not met by large group supervision ratios are welcome to register with one-to-one support. Support workers may provide redirection for safety reasons, allow opportunities for breaks, assist with personal care (e.g., feeding, toileting, changing, etc.).
Participants can register for one-to-one support provided through the city or bring their own external support worker. Separate registration is required. For more information on how to register with one-to-one support, please see Inclusion Services.
