FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
1. How many kids do you need to run Camp Odyssey?
Answer: In order to cover costs and make this the best possible experience for your children, we need a minimum 10 registrations for each day the camp runs. If we are unable to secure the minimum necessary we will be contacting registrants and providing a full refund by 6 days before camp runs.
2. What happens if it rains?
Answer: We will play in the rain! Camp Odyssey will run rain or shine. In the case of inclement weather, a backup indoor space will be available, but it is our priority to be outdoors and appreciate all conditions. Please check the forecast and send your child with appropriate clothing and footwear. Extra socks and gloves/mitts are always a good idea, even in the summer.
3. Who will be leading my children? Can I trust them?
Answer: We are lucky to have two experienced Environmental Educators Kim Urbaniak (Ms Kim) and Patty Kolesnichenko (Batty Patty), leading camp activities, with 25 years combined experience. These educators have current Criminal Record Checks in good standing, valid First Aid Certifications, access to a cell phone and all necessary emergency numbers.
