A note on electronics: One of the goals of camp is to provide campers with unique experiences at McMaster. Electronic devices - games, phones, music players, etc. - while great for individual entertainment, do not readily encourage socialization at camp and often present challenges, especially when they go missing. We ask that all electronics be left at home for the duration of camp, and promise to provide an awesome experience to keep campers engaged throughout their session!

First Day Check-In

Athletes are to meet in the Burridge Gymnasium in the Ivor Wynne Centre.

Your athlete will be assigned to a counsellor group, where they are to meet every morning for attendance and to prepare for the day. The athletes are to keep their belongings at their counselor group area. At the end of the day, athletes be signed out by an approved pick-up person, at their counsellor group, before leaving.  If you have given your camper self sign-out privileges, they can sign themselves out at dismissal.
