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.
Field Trips / Children's Outings
Field trips will take place on Thursdays (and some Wednesdays). Shorter outings may occur daily, however full day trips will be held on Thursdays (check your summer calendar for more details). Permission form will have to be sign prior each trip. The form will be available on the Monday of the trip.
Every Tuesday, the Huron Superfriends Kindergarten program will be doing an outing to Jean Sibelius park for a picnic in the park day. The children will bring their own lunches, and the staff will set up activities for children to do in the park.
*** Please make sure your child/ children have a water bottle and hat as we will be outside for a long time ***
