Camper information form

Please complete the Camper Information form and have it ready at check-in on the first day of camp. These forms provide us with important information about your child, including:

  • emergency contact information
  • authorized individuals for end of day pick-up of campers
  • health information about your child

Inclusion and additional support

All Camp Aliquam programs offer inclusive programming for children. If your child needs help navigating camp, we've partnered with Dufferin Child and Family Services (DCAFS). DCAFS can assist families with matching support staff and children.

You are responsible for setting up support staff for your child. Children may attend camp with their own support person or you can contact DCAFS to set up a support person for your child.
