    Daycamp FAQs

    What can my child expect every day?
    Children should come to camp ready to try a variety of new activities and experiences both indoors and out! All camps incorporate plenty of opportunities to explore and create, as well as unstructured free playtime. Specific themes and activities are subject to change, and some may be weather-dependant.

    My child doesn't know anyone, will they be ok?
    Many of our campers don’t know anyone when they first come to camp. We emphasize the importance of friendships and encourage campers to make connections with new and old friends.

    What should I send with my child to camp?

    • bathing suit (camp-dependant)
    • healthy lunch
    • snacks
    • sunscreen and hat (weather-dependant)
    • towel
    • water bottle
    • weather-appropriate clothing and footwear for messy and/or outdoor play

     Do not send

    • money
    • electronics
    • phone
    • valuables

    Can I send nuts to daycamp?
    Our daycamps are “nut-aware”, which means that campers are requested not to bring nuts or nut products to any camp. This is for the safety of all campers.

    Should I send my child’s phone or other electronics?
    Electronics can be a distraction for all participants and are discouraged at our camps. We think it is important for all campers to be active and engaged, and we support them to make connections with other children at camp.

    Can I register my child for just one day of camp?
    Unfortunately, we have cancelled all daily daycamp registration.

    Will my child go swimming?
    Yes, every Thursday we will swim at Al Anderson Memorial Pool (Funtastic Daycamp Only)

    Will my child go on a field trip?
    Yes, each Friday, we will be on a field trip. (Funtastic Daycamp Only)

    What if my child doesn’t like camp?
    Who doesn’t like camp? We have tons of fun and find that once campers are settled in, they usually don’t want to leave. However, if they aren’t having fun, talk to us. We can recommend other camps or provide a pro-rated refund for the remainder of the camp.

    What is Extended Play, Before and After?
    Need more schedule flexibility on days your child is in a Daycamp? Take advantage of this program offered from 7:00 - 8:30am and 3:00 - 6:00pm at an additional cost.

    My child has a support worker at school, do they need one at camp?
    The City of Langley is committed to supporting children with developmental disabilities or delays to successfully participate in Langley City Daycamp programs. If your child requires extra support, please contact the Recreation Supervisor at 604-514-2865.

    Can I send a support worker or aid with my child?
    If you have your own support worker, we are happy to have them within our program. However, the support worker needs to complete a Police Information Check. Please contact us two weeks before the camp starts so we can provide you with the paperwork. This police check is needed for any adult participating in the program with the child (including parents).

    On the first day camp, the leaders will meet with the support worker to discuss how to work with the participant.

    What if I cannot get there to pick my child up on time after a day camp?
    You may be subject to a late pick-up fee. If you need some flexibility in your schedule, consider our Extended Play options.

    What is your refund policy?

    Unless otherwise specified,

    • If less than 5 business days’ notice is given, 50% of the fee will be issued
    • If notice is given on or after the start date of a program, a refund will not be issued
