INFO

Our program is developed from childhood development studies that cater to both the intuitive, learning side of a child, as well as the creative and free flowing nature of their personality.  At Summer Shake, our priority is having fun, and providing your child with the tools they need to develop useful skills and abilities.

LUNCH PROGRAM & FOOD POLICIES

  LUNCH PROGRAM 

 Every Tuesday we offer a Pizza lunch at $2.50 a slice.  Forms must be submitted Monday morning

. Every Thursday we offer a sandwich lunch program provided through Subway for $5.00 a sub

 

FOOD POLICIES

 Due to medical allergies of many campers who come through our doors, nut products of any kind are not  permitted on the premises.  If food containing nuts is discovered, it will be taken away and replaced with an  alternate snack at the parent's expense.

  • We take pride in offering some of the most affordable child care in the Ottawa region.  Our rates are based on our operating and program costs.

  • Because our goal is to offer affordable, quality care to our community and not create profit, we are pleased to offer our camp at : $180/weekly.  In addition you may add before or after care for an additional $10 each week, per child.

OUR RATES
OUR HOURS
  • Before Care - 7:30-8:30AM (Additional $10 per week)

  • Drop Off - 8:30-9:00AM

  • Regular Programming - 9AM-4PM (Closed Door Policy)

  • Pick Up - 4:00-4:30PM

  • After Care - 4:30-5:30PM (Additional $10 per week)

 
RATIOS
  • Maintaining great ratios help Summer Shake ensure the safety of every child, no matter the situation.

  • On-site we maintain a minimum 1:10 ratio.

  • Off-site in a controlled environment we maintain a 1:8 ratio.

  • During out trips, we aim to maintain a 1:5 ratio or less.

AGES
  • Our program is currently designed to care for children aged 5-12 years old.

  • Unfortunately, swimming and off site restrictions do not allow for us to be flexible with these ages.

 
MEDICATIONS

We recognize that some children require regular administration of medication, so we maintain a very strict procedure for medication administration.  If your child requires medication while at camp, please be sure to complete a Camp Medication Form on site upon arrival.  We will only accept enough medication for one week and it must be in the original prescription bottle with the child's name and prescribing physician.  All medication (even Tylenol) must kept by Lead Coach.  Please speak with our Directors about special exceptions such as asthma inhalers. 

 
 
SWIMMING

Each Wednesday, our camp travels to the Nepean Sportsplex for an afternoon of swimming.  Due to the nature of the activity, we take extra precautions to ensure safety, such as minimizing ratios, swim tests and life jackets for children who can't swim.  Summer Shake takes pride in surpassing the City of Ottawa requirements for camp group ratios.  These ratios vary by age and are non-negotiable.

 
DISCIPLINE
  • As a camp, we're committed to enable and coach children into becoming the very best they can be.  Conflict situations are very important for a child to develop the necessary problem solving skills they'll use later on in life. 

  • Because of this, Summer Shake implements a one of a kind Behaviour Intervention Plan that coaches a child through problem solving to enable them to find their own solutions.

  • You can download the most recent copy of our Behaviour Intervention Plan here.

  • On vary rare occasions, after all viable options have been attempted, a camper may be expelled from camp.  In this case, no refund is issued.
