General Information

Hopefully, the following information will answer any question you might have about our camp programs. If you still have questions, please feel free to contact us! 

Virtual Summer Camp Cost

Costs vary depending on what is included in each kit ranging from $100-$200 CAD. For example for the specialized coding camps some students will receive a micro bit as part of their registration. Postage is included in the cost of your camp week unless you are located outside of Canada - if this is the case our team will reach out to you to discuss an additional fee to mail you your kit. 

Virtual Camp Hours: Monday to Friday (except for Holidays)

All camps will include two hours of synchronous learning (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) to accomodate family schedules. In addition, asynchronous activities will be included for students to complete throughout the day.

Extended Care (available for virtual and in-person programs)

Extended care is available for both early drop-off (8:00am to 9:00am) and late pick-up (4:00pm to 5:00pm). During both times your child will be supervised by our staff and will be able to participate in a variety of activities that are both educational and fun. The cost for early drop-off or late pick-up is $20 for the week, if you chose to request both it would be $40 for the week.

Pick Up and Drop Off (applies to in-person programs only)

Pick up and drop off procedures for ALL locations will be as follows:

Campers must be signed in and out each day with the Discovery Western Staff. Regular pick up and drop off times are 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. respectively. If you have registered for extended care you may drop off your child starting at 8:00 a.m. and must pick them up by 5:00 p.m. Families who are late picking up their child will be charged an additional fee for the extended period of care.

Discovery Western Staff will be checking ID during pick up, at the end of each camp day. Please let an instructor know in the morning who will be picking up your child at the end of the day. During pick up, we will require a government-issued photo ID to sign out a camper.
