The instructors:
We have a talented group of young people with a passion for both children and art as part of our crew.   Our staff to camper ratio reflects our commitment to safe and high-quality supervision. Our regular camp ratio is one leader to nine campers (1:9). Our camp leaders are also supported by responsible volunteers and all Museum Staff to maintain the safety and wellbeing of your child. 
 
All leadership staff goes through a thorough screening process which includes formal interviews, reference checks and vulnerable sector screening. All leaders have a Standard First Aid & CPR-C Certificate and attend thorough pre-camp training sessions which include topics such as program planning, child development and understanding child behaviour, as well as OMAH’s emergency procedures and policies. 
 
Drop-off and Pick-up:
Campers may be dropped off between 8:45am and 9:00am.  Pick-up starts at 4pm. Campers must be picked-up by 4:30pm, there is no after-care is available. To ensure safe arrival and departure, guardians will be met at the door and will be asked to sign their children in and out of camp in the morning and afternoon. 
 
On the first day of camp you will be asked to fill out a Safe-Release List, this is a list of approved adults who can pick up your child. OMAH will not release your child to anyone who is not on the Safe Release List. Photo ID will be required at the time of pick up.
 
With written guardian permission, campers over the age of 10 can sign themselves in and out of camp. Please ask to fill out a self-release form for your child.  
 
Camper Information Forms & Medicines at Camp:
An information form must be filled out for each child in attendance. These will be e-mailed to you a week before camp start, but will also be available in hard-copy on the first morning of camp. Please ensure that the medical section is fully completed. This section includes your family doctor’s name, healthcard information, and an emergency contact that can be reached during the hours of 7am-6:30pm. 
 
Campers requiring medication at camp will need to have a Request to Administer Medication form signed. Medication must be in its original container and will be stored in a secure location by camp staff. Request to Administer Medication form will be available in hard-copy during camp-sign in. 
 
Lunch:
Campers will have 2 snack breaks and a lunch break each day. Please pack nut-free and litter-less lunches. Please bring a reusable water bottle so that campers can keep hydrated during our camp adventure!
 
What to Wear:
Campers should dress for mess as we will be using paint, plaster and more! 
 
What not to bring:
Leave all electronics (phones, tablets, iPods) and any other toys or gadgets at home please. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen items. Please ensure that everything your child brings to camp is labeled with their name. 
 
Going off site:
At Lunch Break we will be visiting Victoria Park or by the lake for some outdoor play or art activities. Please ensure that your child has weather-appropriate clothing. Should we have inclement weather, we will adjust our plans and play indoors.
