To prepare to re-open for Summer 2021, we have carefully considered how we can safely host camp during a pandemic, while maintaining all the benefits of the Camp Kirk experience. Please read our COVID Safety Plan document for information on how we have adapted our programs and practices to best protect our campers and staff.
We expect camp will be operating this summer, but this is dependent on the government’s decision to allow camps to operate come Summer 2021. To ensure we are prepared to host camp, we are progressing with enrolment as usual. Rest assured, families will have the option to receive a full refund of camp fees if we are not permitted to operate (please refer to our Payment Terms & Conditions for details).
Getting to Know your Child
To ensure a successful camp experience, we need to assess whether we have the appropriate environment and level of support for your child. For this reason, we have put together a comprehensive application process that requires information from the family and teacher. (NOTE: only the family portion is required for Returning Campers). It takes some time to fill out the application, but we are here for help and support if you need it!
Avoid the Waitlist
We work on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you are interested in Camp Kirk for the upcoming summer, please send your application in today to avoid the waitlist.
Personal Camper Meeting for New Families
Once we receive a New Camper Application, we will contact you to arrange a personal camper meeting. The purpose of this meeting is for us to gain a clearer understanding of your child’s needs and to assess Camp Kirk’s ability to meet them. This is also a wonderful chance for your family to get a better sense of Camp Kirk- who we are and what we do!
If a child is eligible for Camp Kirk, we want to ensure they are not left out due to financial constraints. Any family is welcome to use our Financial Aid program, and we use a ‘pay-what-you-can’ model. We work on an honor system with families and do not require ‘proof of need’. To apply, simply fill out the Financial Aid section of the online application. To learn more about our fees and Financial Aid requirements, please head to our Rates & Dates page.
We look forward to the prospect of meeting you and of having your child with us next summer. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at your convenience.
