True North Climbing is perfect for day camp fun for kids aged 7-12. Our camp offers a fun and safe environment for children to rock climb, boulder, and slack line in our indoor facility. Children will also do arts and crafts, and a variety of indoor sports. We provide a counselor for every 5 kids, to give them plenty of time to climb and keep them well supervised. The camp runs from 9:00am – 4:00 pm on Monday to Friday; half days are also available. We run our day camp during March break, Passover break, all summer long and over the 2-week winter break. We can also arrange day camp on any school PA/PD days on request, with a week’s notice or more, for 2 or more kids.
We will be offering the following day camps during 2015:
March Break Camp: March 16th – 20th
Passover Break: April 6th – 10th
Summer Camp: June 29th through September 4th
Winter Break: December 21st – 31st
Camp is not held on statutory holidays. Children are required to bring: running shoes, athletic clothing, lunch & snacks. There will be a Pizza Lunch each Friday of the full weeks (except during Passover).
Note: Every child must arrive with a properly completed Minor Waiver form signed by their parent. Another child’s parent cannot sign their form. The form is available at the gym, or can be completed online at http://truenorthclimbing.com/climb-with-us/waivers
This year at day camp we are kicking it up a notch! We will have a number of activities planned each day that the kids will love. They will get 3 hours of climbing and climbing related games over the course of the day but will also get to enjoy other activities like soccer, creative arts, volleyball, C.A.T.C.H. (a group of non-eliminating games that keep kids moving) and many more.
From time to time (subject to sufficient kids booked well in advance), True North will bring a special guest into the gym. Some will be bringing their furry and scaly friends with them and others will be doing arts & crafts, music or science experiments. Kids will be very hands-on with the special guest activity of the week. Guests will normally be in the afternoon for about an hour.

Early drop-off or late pick-up:
Please pick up your child on time. We schedule our staff for the camp period, and they have places to go when their shift is over. There is an additional fee of $5 + HST per child for each quarter hour of additional care. Please tell us in advance if you know you will be picking up your child late.
Scheduling staff to provide appropriate supervision for your children gets complex, especially when bookings are made or cancelled on short notice. We do not cancel scheduled shifts for our staff on very short notice. Please note our policies regarding cancellation, refunds and changes:
- If you cancel a session with at least 48 hours notice you will receive a refund of the amount paid, less a $15+ HST administrative fee.
- If you cancel or reschedule a session with less than 48 hours notice, you may receive a credit of the amount paid towards future services (less a $15 + HST administrative fee), or your payment may be forfeited, depending on the impact of your cancellation. There is a $15 + HST administrative fee for all schedule changes (e.g. change days, change full day to half day) made between 48 hours and 1 week before a session. With more than a week of advance notice, we allow changes without extra charge, subject to availability.
Please talk to the staff at the front desk or email daycamp@truenorthclimbing if you have any additional questions about this program.
