Changes or Cancellations:
A fee of $10 will apply for cancellations up to two weeks prior to your camp start date. There will be no refunds issued after that date.
Parents/guardians are required to have documented the name and phone number of who will be picking up their camper on the sign in/out sheet. You can add an alternate pick-up for your child, by calling or emailing us from a number/email address that we have on your Camper’s file, or by adding someone to your camper’s file in the morning when you are dropping them off. Camp staff will not allow an adult that's not listed on your camper’s file to take the camper home. Picture ID is required for all adults picking up campers at the end of every single day.
Spark works to ensure that all campers get the most out of their experience. Camps are designed and tested to be challenging enough only for the specified age range. Spark is happy to allow campers to attend any camp, provided they turn the minimum age required by the first day of camp. Campers under 5 years old tend to find our full day camps too challenging, so it is encouraged for parents of kids under 5 to check out the half day camp options at some of the other camps in the city.
PD Day Camps run from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. Before and after care is included in the cost of PD Day camps and runs from 8:00 am – 9:00 am and 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm. You are welcome to drop-off and pick-up campers any time during those one hour windows.
If a parent/guardian requires taking their camper out early for any reason, just let the camp leaders know in the morning at drop-off. When you arrive for early pick-up, please check in with the front desk staff who can help you locate your child’s camp.
Doors open for Day camps at 8:00 am. You are welcome to drop off your Campers anytime between 8:00 am and 9:00 am.
Please ensure that your child is dressed for the weather forecast. We often run programs outdoors if the weather permits and we always include an outdoor recess in the Brainasium. Please dress for a bit of mess as well; we suggest you bring an extra set of clothes for younger campers in case your child gets their clothing wet while experiencing activities at water tables. You won't need to send any supplies with the campers, other than two snacks (for morning and afternoon breaks) and a lunch. When packing a lunch and snacks for your child, please ensure that they are peanut-free.
A camp staff or volunteer will greet parents and campers at the front door in the morning and help you locate your camper’s room. There will also be numerous signs to assist you in wayfinding.
Our primary concern is for the safety of our campers. In the unlikely event that your child requires emergency medical attention while they are in our care, it is vital that we have their Alberta Health Care number for medical professionals.
The first 30 minutes of parking is free for parents and caregivers dropping off and picking up campers. Parents can simply not worry about activating a parking session during pick-up and drop-off hours. If you are dropping a camper off late or picking up a camper early, simply activate a 30 mins free parking session on the Park Plus machines. If you plan to stay at the Centre beyond pick up and drop off hours, all members have free parking otherwise, parking is a $7 flat fee for the day.
Please be prompt and give us a call should there be an outstanding circumstance that causes you to be late. If you have not arrived to pick up your Camper by 5:00 pm, we will contact you via the numbers listed on your child’s registration info. If we are unable to reach you and we haven’t heard from you by 5:15 pm child services will be contacted.
