 Class Size and Our Staff:

Classes are limited to 20 children. All breaks and lunches are supervised by PAMA staff.

PAMA’s Camp Educators are professional instructors with a background in art education, teaching and museum studies. All educators, teaching assistants and volunteers are trained to ensure a safe, fun and creative environment for campers. A staff member with First Aid training is available to assist in the event of any accidents or incidents.

What to Bring and Wear:

 A PEANUT/NUT-FREE lunch, snacks and drinks. While we cannot guarantee a nut-free environment, as we share public spaces, we make every effort to provide a safe environment for all campers. Please assist us in doing so by ensuring your child’s lunch is peanut-free and that they do not bring food to share with others. PAMA does not have food for purchase, nor are campers allowed to go off-site to purchase lunch. In the event a camper attends camp without a lunch, a PAMA staff member will call home for arrangements to be made.

  1. A refillable WATER BOTTLE.
  2. Campers should wear CLOSED TOED SHOES, preferably running shoes.
  3. Camp has the potential to get messy! We advise campers to come prepared to get a little paint on them with COMFORTABLE CLOTHES THAT CAN GET DIRTY. While materials used are non-toxic, they may not wash out of clothing.

*Please ensure all lunch bags, containers, water bottles and clothing items are labelled with your child’s name so that they can be returned if lost.

 General Behavioural Policies:

PAMA aims to provide an environment for creativity and exploration for all campers that is safe and positive. Campers who persist in behaviour that is harmful or dangerous to themselves or others may be asked to leave the program.

Cellphones & Electronics:

We encourage camp to be an opportunity for campers to unplug from electronic devices. PAMA is not responsible for the loss or damage to any phones, electronic devices or valuables brought to camp. If our educators or staff see these devices at camp, they will be asked to put them away. Should you need to reach your child while they are at camp, please contact 905-791-4055 for assistance.

Health & Safety:

Medical Information: we ask parents/guardians to provide all pertinent medical information for campers at the time of registration, so our staff can best assist your child in the event of an emergency.

Special Needs: If your child has any special needs, details must be disclosed at the time of registration. PAMA does not provide one-on-one supervision and staff may not be able to provide specific medical support. We do welcome campers who will be attending with a support person; please disclose this information at the time of registration and the support person must bring proof of a Vulnerable Sector Screen to the first day of camp.

Sick Campers: If your child is sick at camp, we will do everything we can to attend to them and keep them comfortable until a parent/guardian is able to come and pick them up.  If your child is too ill to attend camp, please call 905-791-4055 to let us know.

EpiPens: If your child requires an EpiPen while at camp, this must be indicated at the time of registration. We always require that EpiPens be carried by the camper; campers who arrive without their EpiPen will not be admitted to camp.
