YOU ASKED. WE ANSWERED.

 

Where is the camp located?

SU Camps are held at churches and schools across Ontario. Find the camp nearest you by visiting our locations page.

Are there extended hours?

Each location has their own times and decides if they are able to offer extended hours. Find your location and check their page for details.

What is included in the cost?

In addition to a full week of fun, every camper receives a t-shirt, water bottle, camper playbook, Bible and Kisko freezies (twice a day).

How do I register?

Each camp location has their own registrar – go to the Locations page to find a specific camp for more details.

What is the online refund policy?

For cancellations made to online registration prior to June 1, 50% of total fees are refunded. For cancellations made after June 1, the full registration fee is non-refundable unless, and only when, a medical certificate is provided. There is no adjustment in fees for partial attendance and no substitutions are permitted.

What do camp arrivals and departures look like?

Safety is an important part of SU Camps – so every camper must be signed in and out by a parent/guardian. Please let the sign-in team know if another authorised individual will be signing your child in or out.

What are the ages? 

Please check your camp location for ages. While we love kindergarteners – experience has shown they’re a little too young for a full day of sports camp. Children must be going into grade 1 in the fall to be eligible to attend camp.

What if my child only wants to play one sport?

SU Camps are multi-sport. We understand some kids may favour one sport over  others – but we’ve rarely had a kid not enjoy trying “new” sports. Studies have shown that developing skills in multiple sports as a child is greatly beneficial for athletes.

My child has played a sport for several years, will they still enjoy learning the basics?

Every year at camp we have children with varying skill levels. Our coaches are trained in spotting higher skill levels and working alongside them to improve their skills (and they are often used in demonstrations). Going back to the basics is actually really helpful for children. Whatever level your child is before camp, you will see them improve by the end of camp.

What does camp look like?

After a group warm-up game and stretching, campers divide into squads based on age ( to play against others their age) and rotate between the sports. After the sports sessions, we have “Team Talk” which includes a big group and small group time – during which we talk about the greatest coach ever, Jesus. SU Camp traditions are a big part of camp too – look out for ACE (Attitude, Concentration and Effort) awards, SU Jumping Jacks, Camp Cup awards, squad challenges, Pick-a-Box, and much more!

What do I need to send with my child to camp?

  • SU t-shirt (provided on first day of camp)
  • water bottle (provided on first day of camp)
  • hat/cap
  • sunscreen
  • running shoes
  • swimsuit and towel (on water fun day)
  • lunch and snacks (freezies are provided twice a day)
  • backpack
  • medication → for more information on medical stipulations, click here
