Arrival and Departure/ Days of Closure
During the summer months, Huron Superfriends is open from 7:30 a.m until 6:00 p.m. Children should arrive at camp by 9:30 a.m as some of our fiend trips will take place in the morning (please check the summer calendar to make sure your child/children are dropped off on time for the buses) and interest groups will begin. Any parents/guardian picking up children must sign out on the attendance board and note the time out.
Children must be signed out of camp, by 6:00 p.m.
Due to the length of travel time and trip location, some field trips will leave camp earlier. A note will be posted in the Huron Superfriends entrance way to remind parents of earlier departures and/or later arrival times back at camp.
Huron Superfriends will be closed on Canada Day (July 1) as well on the Civic Holiday, and the last Friday of the summer holidays for cleaning.

Huron Superfriends Hats and T-shirts
Huron Superfriends campers will be sporting their own hat and t-shirt for the summer program. Every child in the program will get a hat and a t-shirt and your fees will be adjusted for the first week of camp with an extra $25.00. All children will must wear the hat every time we go on FIELD TRIPS. All hats will be labelled with each child name and the hats will be yours to keep at the end of the child’s stay at Huron Superfriends summer camp. Children as usual are required to bring their own hat every day-BUT-if they forget their own they will have to wear their Huron Superfriends hat when outdoors.
This will help us ensure that all children have and wear appropriate head cover, when spending many hours outdoor and make it easier for us to be identifying when we are in public places.
All children will be participating in swimming lessons, each Tuesday and Thursday and Friday morning. The swimming lessons are held at St. Alban's Boys and Girls Club, located on Palmerston Avenue. Children and camp staff will walk to St. Alban's, where we will enjoy swimming again this summer. Children’s swimming will not take place when the children are on field trips.
Field trips will take place on Wednesdays. Shorter outings may occur daily, however full day trips will be held on Wednesdays. Permission form will have to be sign prior each trip. The form will be available on the Monday of the trip.
Teacher Directed Activities (Crafts, Sports, and Other)
Three times a week the children will enjoy spending time in smaller groups (age appropriate) doing crafts and sport activities. Many different activities will feature (tennis, baseball, ringette, floor hockey, ball games, soccer, volleyball, basketball, painting, picture frames, wood art, paper mache, clay, plastercine, jewellery making, tie dyeing and much more).
Free Choice Time
During the day the children will have 2 to 3 free choice times. Unlike other camps we provide times for the children to choose their activities: play board games with friends, dodgeball, 4-square, drawing, playing tag, read a book on the bean bags, legos, computer games…moments to relax, make new friends, and enjoy their summertime!

A Drumming workshop, a Zumba workshop, a Curling workshop, Dancing and many more. All will take place throughout the summer camp, all our workshops will be hosted on Mondays.
