CMU Summer Camp Policies

Transfer Policy

We will endeavour to accommodate requests to transfer Campers from their original registered program to another program week, provided the request is made at least one (1) week prior to the first day of their requested program’s start date, subject to space availability.

Refund Policy

Families may cancel their registration no later than four (4) weeks prior to the first day of their requested program’s start date. They will receive a refund, minus a $100 cancellation fee. Refunds are not available for cancellations made within four (4) weeks of the requested program’s start date

Drop Off/ Pickup Policy

Campers who are dropped off prior to 9:30 AM or picked up after 3:00 PM may wait in the foyer (front lobby) of the college or in the courtyard outside the front door. The summer camp Instructor or CMU staff member will meet Campers each day in the foyer at 9:30 AM CMU does not provide sign in/sign out or supervision outside the summer camp hours (9:30 AM to 3:00 PM).

Lunch and Breaks

Campers will be given a one-hour lunch break each day. Weather permitting, the instructor will accompany campers to a nearby park, or if they prefer, campers may go offsite for their lunch break.

Safety and Student Behaviour

CMU staff is dedicated to creating a positive, safe, and inclusive learning environment for all students, including participants in our summer camps. At the commencement of each camp, we will host a brief orientation during which we will review the rules and expectations for behaviour and participation.

Staff are instructed to inform our Student Services department of inappropriate behaviour. Our leadership team may contact parents when behaviour is especially concerning. In extreme cases, matters may be escalated to CMU senior management who will determine an appropriate response, which may include dismissal from the program. In cases where a participant is dismissed from our summer camp and asked to not return, refunds are not available.

We have referenced the Ontario Safe Schools Act to formulate our rules and expectations for the summer camps. They include:

  • Respect and follow the law
  • Tell the truth and be honest
  • Make everyone feel welcome and included
  • Respect the differences and rights of other people
  • Treat everyone with respect, even when you do not agree with someone else
  • Show care for the property and equipment belonging to the college, and to other students
  • Help others when they need it
  • Listen to instructions and directions from staff
  • Ask staff for help so that problems can be resolved peacefully
  • Do not use swear words
  • Try their best in all activities

Participants in CMU summer camps must not:

  • Bully other people, either in person or through technology such as cell phones, social media, or email
  • Touch people in a way that is unwanted or makes them feel uncomfortable
  • Use any object to threaten people or make others feel uncomfortable
  • Bring cigarettes, drugs, or alcohol to Camp
  • Take things that are not theirs
  • Hit or hurt someone else, or encourage other people to hit or hurt someone else
  • Say things that hurt other people or might make them feel uncomfortable
  • Engage in any activity that compromises the physical or emotional safety of themselves or others
