Winter Day Camps

 

Welcome to Today’s Family Winter Camp Program!

Today’s Family is a non-profit charitable agency servicing children and families in and around Hamilton, Halton and Haldimand Norfolk. We offer a wide range of early learning and child care programs as well as parental support programs to help you and your child every step of the way. It’s professional, caring support that makes a real difference in the, physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of children.

Today’s Family programs are built around the Emergent Curriculum, which means our activities are always driven by your child’s interests and passions. So, when it comes to trips to exciting new places, our job as a camp is to plan where to go. What actually happens after we get there, though, is up to your child. That means no fixed schedule, no counselors making plans based on what they think your child will like; your child is king (or queen)!

Available on a first-come, first-served basis, you can register for Today’s Family camp by completing the online camp registration form:

Do we have to sign up for the entire winter break?

No, you can sign up on a week-by-week basis. Please note that you will be charged for absent or sick days.

 

What is the cancellation policy?

Parents/guardians must give two weeks written notice of intent to withdraw from the program. If notice is not received, full program fees will be charged.  Our terms and conditions can be found in parent handbooks for the location which your child is registered for.  Parent Handbooks can be found here: https://www.todaysfamily.ca/locations/

 

What is a family meeting, why is this required?

To ensure success of all children in our programs, Today’s Family holds Family Meetings as part of the camp registration process.  This allows us to show the child and family the location where they will be attending camp, allow your family to get to know the Program Supervisor and for us to get to know your child.  It helps to ensure a great transition into program!  Family Meetings are in person, and may be group sessions.  You can request an individual appointment, should you want to discuss your child’s needs or require accommodation.  Please reach out to [email protected] for more information.
