Make sure to check YES or NO when filling out your child’s registration form if you agree to the reasonable use of a photo of your child in promotional material.
Camper Photo IDs
Every camper upon arrival at camp will have their picture taken. These pictures are for internal purposes or for an unlikely emergency situation. They will be kept secure and will not be used for promotional purposes.
We understand that sending kids to camp is expensive, but we do not want a child to miss out on an amazing week. We have churches and individuals from local churches that give financially to sponsor children to go to Camp.
If you are in need of financial assistance to send your child to camp please complete the Camper Sponsorship Application Form and then go ahead to register your child for Camp. You will have to select the "Sponsorship" option when you get to the payment section.
We have over 50 apply for camper sponsorship. Please fill out the portion that you can contribute as well--every bit helps.
The Shiktehawk Shack is the place to purchase Camp t-shirts and hoodies, water bottles, and who knows what else you’ll find there.
We have the Shiktehawk Shack open during registration and pick up times.
Tuck is a sweet treat time for the campers! Parents pay ahead of time so the camper gets to go pick out their favorite snack every day.
Maximum $4 a day.
REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS:
If a camper goes home because of homesickness, health or personal issues, a refund of the remaining camp fee shall be granted to the person who paid the camp fee.
The refund shall be calculated on a proportional basis of time spent here. The $40 deposit fee is non-refundable and is not included in the calculation.
Any camper sent home for disciplinary issues will not be granted a refund.
The safety of the children and teens that attend Shiktehawk is of the utmost importance to us. We reserve the right to send home a camper for inappropriate or harmful behaviour without refund.
Make sure you show up to camp with everything you need, and nothing that you shouldn't bring. We've put together a helpful list:
ALLERGIES AND DIETARY NEEDS:
At Shiktehawk, we try our best to accommodate to all needs. Make sure to fill out your child’s registration form well with all the necessary information required for any allergies and dietary needs. Don’t hesitate to call and chat with our head cook if you have concerns. Camp is a nut free zone and we frequently cook for different allergies and intolerances.
We have epi-pens on site in case of an allergic reaction.
Every Camper, Staff and Volunteer, upon arrival at camp will have their head checked for lice and nits by our trained staff, in an effort to give every camper an awesome week at camp, and to avoid the spread of head lice amongst all the campers.
We suggest parents check their children a week before arriving at camp.
Please leave the campers personal belongings in their car until they have finished the Head Lice Check and had their photo taken.
If any lice or nits are found at that time or at any time during the camping session, the camper will be asked to return home. Each person in that child’s cabin, as well as any siblings that are attending camp will also be checked for head lice. We will also notify the parents/guardians of children who have come in contact with the affected camper.
The campers cabin will be vacuumed and any cloth materials will be either washed in hot water or thrown in the dryer. Anything not able to go in the dryer will be sprayed with lice spray. Once the camper is lice and nit free, they have the following options:
Choose another week- Parents can bring their child back for another week of equal value during the current summer, if space is available.
In the event that another week is not available you may choose a refund (2/3rd of the fee) Apply 2/3 of the current year fee towards your child’s camp the following season.
We want your child to get the full experience at Camp and we definitely don’t want them to go home early!
If a child does go home due to homesickness a refund of the remaining camp fee shall be granted to the person who paid the camp fee. The refund shall be calculated on a proportional basis of time spent here (the pre-registration fee is non-refundable and is not included in this calculation).
All medications or medical equipment go to the Camp Nurse at the time of registration with the instructions. At which time, it will be documented and distributed when indicated.
Cabin leaders will be notified of any campers in their care who have medications, medical needs, allergies or special needs prior to registration of each session. The Camp Nurse and Executive Director will also be provided with this information prior the registration of session.
It is the responsibility of the cabin leader to take the camper to the Nurse for medication but it is also the responsibility of the Camp Nurse to make sure that this is not overlooked.
All medical and medication distribution records are to be kept confidential and on file in the Nurse’s Cabin.
