How much are our Summer Programs?
Our Summer Young Children’s Program is $30 or $45 depending on which program you choose. Our Summer Camps are $120/week
What does a typical Summer Camp Day look like?
While every day of camp looks different, we try to keep the daily routine as consistent as possible. Between 9am-3pm, the campers do big and small activities such as crafts, games, STEAM activities, our bubble slide, water activities, free time, etc. that are consistent with the weekly theme. These are scheduled before and after each snack and lunch time.
We have two snack times, one at 10:30am and another at 2:30pm for 15 minutes. Campers eat lunch for 1 hour at 11:45am.
There are some days when all age groups come together for some bigger activities. Trip days are on Fridays, so Fridays are different from a typical day at camp.
Are there any trips during the week?
We try our best to book a theme related trip while at camp! If we are unable to have an offsite trip, we have activities come to camp to do with all the campers

How does online registration work?
Once registration starts on February 18th, you will email Emily that you are interested in registering.
She will confirm that you are a part of the Fiddlesticks catchment and will send you the registration instructions.
Once you have received the email instructions, two documents are required to send back to her filled out and signed in order to send an invoice. After the invoice has been sent your spot is not secure until payment has been received.
You have until 10am the following day to pay for your spot. If it is not paid by then your invoice will be canceled and you will have to email to re-register.
Why do you wait until Tuesday to process registrations?
We wait until Tuesday to process as Monday after registration opens falls onto Family Day.
What boundaries are for the Fiddlesticks Catchment?
Our boundaries are Franklin Blvd, Townline Rd, Clyde Rd, and Pinebush Rd
Can I register if I live outside the catchment? Will you open outside the catchment?
When registration opens on February 18th, you are not able to register outside the catchment just yet.
We will open to outside the catchment on Saturday April 15th
What does my child need to bring to camp?
Hat, Refillable Water bottle, Change of clothes, Towel, Spray sunscreen bottle for reapplication, 2 snacks and 1 lunch (nut-free), 3 Layer Mask in labeled bag, Hand sanitizer, Epi-pen (if required)
What does program ready mean? (listed on back of the SPIAF)
In order to support the success, safety and inclusion of all individuals registered and participating in Fiddlesticks programs, it is
important that participants attending these programs are indeed “Program Ready”. To assist in determining if a participant is
“Program Ready”, the following criteria have been developed:
able to take direction and instruction from a staff person
comfortable and able to interact in a group environment
able to participate in the program. Participation, interaction, and inclusion into programs are based on a child’s individual needs. However, it is asked that the participant can demonstrate the basic skill and participate in a minimum of 50% of the program.
School-aged participants are able to attend school successfully without specialized classroom support
Participants interact and participate in the program in a manner that is safe for themselves and others
Do you offer varying rates for multiple children or multiple weeks?
Not at this time
