Do you have a Lost & Found office?

Our Camp Office is our lost and found! The Camp Office is in the alleyway leading up to the Children’s Garden. Please write to camp@evergreen.ca if your camper has forgotten or lost any item at Evergreen Brick Works. See here for our visitor map.

 

Please note, we strongly encourage campers to avoid bringing items deemed as valuable to camp. Evergreen is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Does camps and clubs run in inclement weather?

We’re outside as much as possible! That being said, in the case of extreme or unexpected weather such as thunder, lightning, hail, extreme heat/cold, we will be moving camp programming in a sheltered space or indoors for campers to continue having fun while staying safe.

 

In case of flooding at Evergreen Brick Works, or other unforeseen circumstances, Evergreen has the right to cancel camp programming as weather conditions may change unexpectedly, cancellation may be issued after camp programming has started.

Can my camper be in the same group as their friend?

Building a fun, friendly and accepting group of campers is a key goal for Day Camps, and to ensure this, we accept friend requests only if the campers are in the same age group and camp session. We limit the requests to one per camper. Friend requests that are not in the same age group and camp session will not be considered.

 

If you’d like to share a friend request, we strongly encourage you to contact our camp office at least 14 days in advance to your registered camp session. This gives our camp team enough time to accommodate for any late adjustments or changes to our camp planning. Please include your camper’s full name and registered camp session along with their friend’s camp information. We will try our best to accommodate, however, know that we are unable to guarantee friend requests.
