Green acres optional illness insurance
$15/WEEK PER CHILD
At the time of enrolment, parents may choose to sign up for the Green Acres Optional Illness Insurance which covers against the possibility that a camper may have an extended absence or need to withdraw from Camp as a result of illness or injury (proof of illness may be required). If your child misses more than two consecutive days of camp, a refund will be issued for the third consecutive missed day and onwards, not including the first two days (ex. Your child misses Monday to Friday, you will only receive a refund for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday).
If coverage is desired, just add the Green Acres Illness Insurance to your camp fees at registration – this cannot be added once your Application for Enrolment has been confirmed.
One-on-one counsellors – “leisure buddies” (limited availability)
Our Leisure Buddy program is for campers who may be struggling in a new environment, find it challenging to follow group instructions or has certain exceptionalities. With the help of a Leisure Buddy, campers are able to successfully remain part of their cabin group at Camp. Under the supervision of the Camper Relations Team, the camper and their Leisure Buddy will follow the cabin schedule to the best of their abilities. Where changes need to be made in order for their experience to be more successful, the Camper Relations Team will work with the child and their leisure buddy to devise a tailored schedule. Parents can expect regular communication from the Leisure Buddy and the Camper Relations Team to have a better understanding of their child’s progress and experience at Green Acres.
A leisure buddy can be provided independently by the parent or hired by the camp for an additional $325/week if booked prior to May 1st, 2024 .
If you have specific questions about our program or would like to talk about the suitability of our program for your child, please call the camp office at (905) 887-1400.
