Prior to your camper’s first day of camp, please fill out a ‘Permission to Pick Up’ form located in your camp information package, listing and authorizing specific persons to pick up your child. Those who arrive to pick up a camper will be asked to provide a piece of photo ID matching the authorized person(s) before the camper is released from our care. If you need to update your Permission to Pick Up list throughout the week, please speak with your camper’s Supervisor.

Camper Code of Conduct

Coarse language, bullying, vandalism, physical and/or aggressive behaviour, and/or any other behaviour that is deemed inappropriate is strictly prohibited. Such activity will be recorded, reported, and may result in removal from the camp program and/or facility at the discretion of Management.

Swim Tests

Each camp will have the chance to participate in an hour of free swim at least once per week. Should your child choose to participate, a swim test may be required. A deep end swim test consists of swimming the width of the Uxpool (across and back), in a front crawl, without stopping. A shallow end swim test consists of only one width of the shallow end. A swim test is required if: the camper wishes to swim in the middle or deep end, or the camper is over the age of six and wishes to swim in the shallow end without a lifejacket. The passing of the swim test is at the discretion of the lifeguards only. Campers may either be granted full access of the pool, partial access of the pool (shallow and middle end only) or may be asked to remain in the shallow end.

Please note, campers ages 6 and under are required to wear a lifejacket, as per Uxpool policy, and are not required to participate in a swim test.
