FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Below you can find FAQs regarding our Day camp program. Questions regarding on our
Boarding Programs? Please visit www.internationalschool.ca
 
1. Can I register on-line? Or over the phone?
Yes, you can register for camps online. Sorry, but we CANNOT accept registrations over the
phone because the medical informed consent must be signed or approved by the registrant
without the use of an intermediary. You may however ADD additional camps for a registered
camper if you have already submitted a registration form or registered online for other camps.
 
2. What are recreation (rec) stations or periods of recreation?
Each campus runs a variety of recreation stations to expose students to an array of healthy
activities. There are a total of 6 instructional hours each day. Typically students receive 3 or 4
hours a day of theme instruction in the particular camp they’ve chosen. The remaining 2 or 3
hours are scheduled in one hour increments at a particular recreation station. The stations at the
two campuses are:
• Circus skills: balloon tying, face painting, stilt walking, balancing, plate spinning and parachute
games.
• Theatre sports: a variety of drama activities that involve non-verbal expression and
socialization skills.
• Gym games: minor games involving small equipment and gross motor skills. Doctor dodge ball
is a favourite!
• Arts n’ crafts: students paint, decorate, glue, cut and colour a variety of take home projects. •
Field sports and games: minor outdoor games or traditional team games that promote healthy
activity and cooperation.
• Aquatics: organized games, skill building activities, and a chance to cool off in the hot weather!
Alternative activities are available for students who do not swim. (NOTE: Junior campus camps
that are advertised to include 4 or 5 year olds will NOT go to the pool.)
• Escape room: two groups of campers will create their own escape room, and put their critical thinking
skills to the test as they attempt to crack the code. 
• Board games: with so much physical activity, this is a quieter station where students play a
variety of board, card, and problem-solving games.
• Nature Walk: Our instructors will lead students on an interpretative nature
walk in Pacific Spirit Park, from the 29th Avenue & Imperial entrance.

12. Is lunch provided? Is there somewhere my son/daughter can buy a lunch?
Day camp registration does not include lunch service.  Each child should arrive at camp with a packed lunch from home.  Only the Senior school has a small cafe' where snacks can be bought; however, since there are long lineups at the cafe' in the summertime we strongly recommend that students not rely on the cafe' for lunch options.  The Junior school has no such cafe'.
 
13. Why does St. George's not allow group* registrations for day camps?
The mandate for St. George's Summer Camps is to provide students in the local community with
fun and tactile summer camp opportunities. We do not allow international agents and/or groups to register for our day camp programs.  If a group is identified as registered in camps, St. George's reserves the right to cancel the registration of all associated campers.
*Groups organized by an agent and registering students from multiple different families.
