Camper activities

Swimming 

Please send your campers with a bathing suit and towel and shoes that can get wet for swimming and water games.

Campers will be swimming at the pool – their schedules will vary, so please check their camp specific days for swim.

Campers age 4-6 years and those who cannot swim will be swimming with a counsellor and will require a lifejacket in the large pool.

Campers age 7 years and older may take a swim test; if they pass, they can swim independently.

We supply lifejackets for those campers that require them.

Behaviour expectations

Disruptive or uncooperative behaviour spoils camp for everyone. Each parent and camper must sign a behaviour expectation form. Campers who do not adhere to expectations may be asked to leave camp permanently.

When considering a recreation experience, please consider the individuals needs, and that the recreation integrated setting may not be suitable for all persons with disabilities. Health and safety of participants and staff is paramount, which could result in participants being denied access to the program.

Please note that the Town of Huntsville does not offer 1:1 support for youth programs or youth campers. Children who require an Educational Assistant at school or 1:1 support for success are asked to provide their own caregiver at youth programs/camp. Please contact our Community Services Recreation staff for further information, to communicate your child’s needs and/or how to bring a caregiver for your child.
