The Town of Newmarket is dedicated to ensuring all campers have a successful camp experience. There are times when a child requires more support than our program ratios are able to provide. In these cases, we strongly recommend consulting with us about our support options.

Additional support is required if:

  • Extra support is required at school
  • A disability exists that could affect the safety of the participant or other participants
  • Extra support is required at home for basic care
  • The participant is associated with a support agency and/or program
  • The participant has a safety plan with their educational institution
  • There are behaviours to be managed (ie. biting, scratching, pinching, etc)

Families are required to complete an All About Me Package and provide an IEP and Safety Plan to help camp staff with any program adaptations. When considering a recreation experience, please consider the individual's needs, and that the recreation integrated setting may not be suitable for all persons. Health and Safety of participants and staff is paramount, which could result in participants being denied access to the program. 

To discuss camp integration and support needs for upcoming camp programs, please email inclusion@newmarket.ca or call 905-953-5300 ext. 2821.

To help serve you more efficiently and save time, camp information will be submitted during the registration process through our Camper Information Questionnaire. Prior to camp starting, you will receive an email to complete your child's medical paperwork, if needed. You will only need to complete this paperwork once for the entire summer! You will also be sent a Safe Dismissal Consent Form. This form needs to be completed and submitted to the Camp Director on you child's first day of camp. Camp forms can also be found below!

To verify that your email is correct in our system, please contact our Customer Service department at 905-953-5303 or check your Xplor account online.

We require all parents/guardians to sign their child in and out of camp daily. Parents/guardians should be prepared to show photo ID daily at sign out. All authorized individuals permitted to pick up your child must be listed on your weekly Safe Dismissal Consent Form. You may choose to give your child permission to arrive and leave camp on their own on their Camper Information Questionnaire. The Town of Newmarket would prefer that children aged nine and under be signed in and out by a parent/guardian.
