Camp Spaces & Parking: Construction Notice

In addition to new construction popping up on the McMaster campus each summer, construction began on the Student Activity Building and Fitness Expansion at David Braley Athletic Centre (DBAC) and Ivor Wynne Centre (IWC) in October 2018.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we adapt and grow in response to these circumstances. A few of our camp spaces have changed, but our commitment to Fun and Learning is still the same. 

Please consult the tabs below to see how the construction has affected our camp spaces and parking for pick-up and drop-off. If a camp is not listed, please expect the camp location and spaces to be similar to the previous summer.

Camp Spaces & Parking: Construction Notice

Parking for Pick-Up and Drop-Off

Camper Drop-Off & Pick-Up

  • Camper Drop-off will remain in Parking Lot H for all camps. Check out our camps map HERE!
  • During Arrival & Dismissal times, you will have a 30-minute no-charge parking period in Parking Lot H.
  • Arrival: Each morning there will also be a kiss & drop Arrival Tent set-up just inside of Parking Lot H, so you can drop & go, as counsellors will be there to escort your campers to their home base for the day.
  • Dismissal: We ask that those coming to pick-up their campers come in to their camp home base for dismissal, unless you have given your camper Self-Sign-Out privilieges. You can update this in your registration. Please let our offices know if you have done so within 1 week of the start of your session.
  • McMaster Parking staff will be onsite daily to assist for ease of access.
  • If you require any parking accessibility accommodations, please contact our camps coordinator: Maggie Cockburn - / 905-525-9140 x26639

Camp Busing:

Due to construction our camp bus arrival & drop-off has been relocated from the front of the Ivor Wynne Centre to the loop in front of Hamilton Hall.
Not to fear, Campers will be escorted to and from the new bus loop by camp staff daily.

Sport Fitness School

Due to the construction around the David Braley Athletic Centre & Ivor Wynne Centre buildings, several of our activity spaces have changed - however all sport activities will remain on Athletics & Recreation property.

SFS Activities:
Due to construction and a lack of safe space to play, we have lost a couple of camp activities this summer. We will also not have access to the indoor Rock Wall, but will continue to use our Alpine Tower for climbing. However we are excited for their return upon completion of construction, tentatively set for summer 2021! Have suggestions for new activities for us to offer once our new spaces are complete? Please let us know when filling out your feedback survey post-session!
