We believe camps are a fun, safe and meaningful way to spend the summer, school breaks and professional days.
Age requirements for full-day camps are calculated as of the child’s age on Dec 31 in the current year, as NVRC follows the same system used by schools. This is designed so that children are in camps with their school grade peers. For example, children turning eight during that year will be in the same camp whether they were born in March or September. Age requirements for part-day camps are calculated as the child’s age at the course start date.
The Camps Team
Our camp leaders are chosen for their experience, leadership and enthusiasm for working with kids. They are trained to make the camps safe, fun and inclusive. Camp leaders are trained in first aid, child development, risk management and emergency preparedness.
Once you've chosen a camp, please be sure to complete and sign our Camp Parental Consent Form. The form is fillable and savable so that you can fill it out once, save a copy to your computer, then print a copy off for each week that your child is in a camp.
- Open the Camp Participant Package
- Fill in your personal information and sign electronically
- Save the completed document to your hard drive
- Give the completed form to your camp leader on the first day of camp. Alternatively, full day camp participants will be provided an email address to submit an electronic copy in advance to camp.
NVRC welcomes participants of all abilities to our camps. While we do not provide 1:1 or individualized support, we have inclusion spots available in some of our full-day summer camps. Visit our access services page if your child would benefit from attending camp with a little extra supervision.
