Summer Camp

Summer is right around the corner!

In a few short months, school will be out and The Makers Club has you covered! Our full-day program opens at 7:30am, and closes at 5:30pm. We go on a field trip every day, explore our amazing city, and spend time at nearby parks. This program is for students 5 years of age (or going into Kindergarten) through 11 years of age (or 5th grade.)

Registration Opens
8am March 1st 2021!

We will be limiting our 2021 group size to 30 students each week – 3 groups of 10. We will try to group according to grades – Kindergarten & 1st grade, 2nd & 3rd grade, 4th & 5th grade. 

This fills up every year. Sign up early. 

The Details
  • Drop off is between 7:30am-9am. 
  • Pick up is between 4pm-5:30pm.
  • We leave for our field trips each day at 9:30am. We can’t wait if you are running late, and we can’t meet you somewhere at our destination.
  • We typically return from field trips between 2pm-3:30pm, depending on the day
  • We provide breakfast (choice of cereal or oatmeal, fruit, and milk) until 9am
  • We ask students to bring lunch from home
  • We provide an afternoon snack
  • Camps are weekly commitments. We do not offer partial weeks, and tuition remains the same regardless of how many days your child attends

We take safety very seriously at TMC. We take the following precautions to keep our students safe each day:

  1. Students read and sign (a simple:) Student Handbook with their parents, outlining expectations while at camp.  
  2. We will go over these expectations every morning.
  3. Students are checked in every morning.
  4. Students must wear a safety bracelet, and school shirt or safety vest every time we leave TMC.
  5. Teachers continuously count heads throughout the day.
  6. Teachers will carry a backpack & first aid kit at all times when not at TMC, along with emergency contact information for each student.
  7. We message parents via Brightwheel when leaving the school, we message when we have reached our destination, we message when we are leaving our field trip location, and we message when we have arrived back at TMC, so that parents know at all times where their child is. 
  8. Protocols for using public restrooms are in place (A counselor must accompany the child, look in the stall first, and then wait at the bathroom door so they are able to see the stall door at all times)
  9. Teachers are constantly aware of their surroundings, and cell phones are not allowed unless being used to communicate with parents, or in an emergency.
  10. Water – When at Madison Park beach & Mounger Pool, two Teachers are in the water WITH the kids, while the others are constantly watching our students. Life guards are also on hand at both locations. Students who can not pass a swim test must stay in the smaller pool and wear a life vest.
the Counsellors
All are certified lifeguards.
All are certified in
CPR/First Aid/AED.

Cost & Billing Policy

Tuition is $275 per week

Due to Covid, we will be handling this a little differently. 

We will not collect deposits until May 1st. We first want to see that 1B Tier 2, of the Covid vaccine schedule, opens this spring. This tier allows child care providers & Teachers to get vaccinated. We also want to see that Covid numbers continue to trend down, and that we are in fact able to host students this summer. 

May 1st
50% deposit due. 

Cancel before June 1st
100% refund of deposit.

Cancel June 1st or after

*All summer plans pending a decline in Covid. It looks like things are finally trending in the right direction, and we are very optimistic about being able to once again host our fabulous summer camps!

*All field trips are subject to change based on transportation, staffing/ratios, weather conditions, and ages of children attending that week, however, we do our absolute best to honor our schedule.
