Frequently Asked Questions
My child wants to attend the Granary Road camp, but they are either too young or too old. Is this okay?
While we’d love to accommodate all kids our camps are designed for specific ages to ensure that your child will get the most out of them!
What do I need to pack for my child?
Each Camper will receive a red Granary Road t-shirt as part of their camping experience but please send your child with weather appropriate clothing, sun screen, a hat, refillable water bottle, snacks and a lunch. We know that summer is a busy time, so Granary Road has both snack and lunch options available. Please see the Snack and Lunch order form for more information.
Is Granary Road a nut free facility?
Granary Road is not a nut free facility as we have multiple food vendors and a restaurant on site. We do ask that parents not send food that contains tree nuts or peanuts.
My child is on medication and requires someone to provide them with the appropriate dose. Is this possible?
Please ask for a Medical Release form from our staff and we will be able to assist you. All Campers are required to have a separate Medical Information Form filled out prior to starting camp. Staff will be able to care for EPI Pens and Inhalers if required.
What about inclement weather?
Rainy day? No problem! We have 2 pavilions, 11 learning kiosks, a 3 bay greenhouse, a 20 000 square food market and our Camp Directors to keep your Camper warm, dry and entertained!
I see you have a great Public Market, can I send my child with extra money to purchase items?
We ask that you take your child to visit our public market after Camp is over for the day. The market is open until 5:30pm on Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
Can I drop my child off early?
Our Camps start at 9:00am. We ask that your child arrives no earlier than 8:55am as there will be no supervision before then.
What if I’m late to pick my child up?
Campers need to be picked up at the end of Camp day, 4:00pm. While we understand that there can be delays in traffic, we ask parents to leave a bit early to accommodate for any unexpected circumstances. Late pick ups will result in extra charges, as we have to pay our staff to stay with your child.
What is your refund policy?
Should your plans change, and your child isn’t able to attend our Granary Road Summer Camps, please let us know as soon as possible. Refunds will not be permitted within 2 weeks of the Camp start.
