We at SPG are set to have a fantastic summer with your children.
Below are a few notes that will make summer run smooth as silk.
1. Apply lots of sunscreen before you arrive at SPG each day. SPG staff members will coach children in reapplication throughout the day. Please take some time at home to teach your children how to apply their own sunscreen safely.
2. Ensure your child has plenty to drink each day. Please send them with a personal water bottle even if they have juice.
3. Pack a morning snack with your child’s lunch (SPG provides a snack each afternoon.)
4. Please send a SUN HAT everyday labelled with your child’s name.
4. For Adventure Camp field trips, departure time is 10am – UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED ON WHITEBOARD OR CALENDAR. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to departure time. Our field trip return time is 3:30pm – UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED ON WHITEBOARD OR CALENDAR.
Early Departure Dates for Summer 2020
- Golden Ears Park Tuesday July 7 8:45am
- Sea to Sky Gondola Friday July 17 8:45am
5. Theme Camps at SPG start at 10am each day (MOVIEMAKERS at 9am) and wrap up at 3pm each day. Care between 8am and 6pm is INCLUDED in your weekly fee.
6. Please check calendar for days when Field Trip Fees apply. These fees need to be paid at the time of drop-off or in advance. (Kayaking $25, Fish & Chips Day $5).
7. Please do not send hand-held video games to SPG. Check calendar for days when money may be allowed. Please do not send money on days when it is not noted on the calendar. Any cell phones must be stowed throughout the day. If contacting parents is necessary, participants are welcome to use the SPG phone.
8. Pack your child’s swim gear everyday (in a separate bag), rain or shine. You never know when we’ll get wet.
9. Dress appropriately for the planned activities. We will be travelling farther by foot this year. On days when we are hiking…wear good walking shoes (NO flip-flops, please). Ensure your child can carry their own pack comfortably. Once again, no flip-flops. These are our worst enemy 🙂
10. Hours of Operation are from 8am to 6pm. Please do not drop off before opening and there is a $1 per minute charge for late pick up. PLEASE TEXT SPG AT 604-261-0515 WHEN YOU ARRIVE TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD AND WE WILL BRING THEM OUT TO YOU. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AS WE WILL HAVE TO GATHER THEM FROM THEIR ACTIVITY AREA AND HAVE THEM WASH HANDS BEFORE DEPARTURE.
11. Finally, please understand that we will do our best to stick to planned events. There may be spontaneous changes if we arrive at outdoor locations that are too busy for us to stay, or other opportunities may yet arise as restrictions are lifted. Please know that as changes are made, it will always be with the welfare of the children in our care at the forefront.
TEXT SPG (604) 261-0515, if your child will not be attending on a scheduled day.
