S U M M E R  P R O G R A M   F A Q

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 $135/week. Extended care is an additional charge.

 

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 . Please note that all trips are subject to change.

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:

Participant is:

  • 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?
