The Town of Newmarket is dedicated to ensuring all campers have a successful camp experience. There are times when a child requires more support than our program ratios are able to provide. In these cases, we strongly recommend consulting with us about our support options.

Additional support is required if:

  • Extra support is required at school
  • A disability exists that could affect the safety of the participant or other participants
  • Extra support is required at home for basic care
  • The participant is associated with a support agency and/or program
  • The participant has a safety plan with their educational institution
  • There are behaviours to be managed (ie. Biting, scratching, pinching, etc)

Families are required to complete an All About Me Package and provide an IEP and Safety Plan to help camp staff with any program adaptations. When considering a recreation experience, please consider the individual's needs, and that the recreation integrated setting may not be suitable for all persons. Health and Safety of participants and staff is paramount, which could result in participants being denied access to the program. This includes safety measures related to complying with COVID-19 Provincial and Regional Safety Guidelines.

To discuss camp integration and support needs for Summer 2021, please email inclusion@newmarket.ca or call 905-953-5300 ext. 2821
