Welcome to Camp

We have compiled a list of 10 things you should know for an enjoyable week of camp.

  1. Pick Up and Drop Off Locations & Times

Your child’s day begins at the location and times noted below. Children will be dropped off at their camp’s QR Code sign in table. A parent/guardian must accompany the child to this table to sign them in.  On the first day of camp, the sign in process can take a few minutes as we confirm registration and emergency contact information, please be patient with the process. 

Pick up will occur from 4:15pm to 4:30pm (or 12:00pm to 12:15pm for half-day AM Tennis Camps). Each child must be signed out by the person indicated on their sign-in sheet, or by one authorized to do so at the time of registration with the personalized QR Code. If you would like your child to sign themselves out after camp, please print off the QR Code for your camper to present to the coach. If you indicated that your child would be able to sign themselves out at the time of registration, you will be asked to verify. Supervision will be provided until 4:45pm. After 4:30 pm coaches will begin to contact parents to confirm the pick-up details for their child if they are still at the camp.

  1. QR Codes - Personalized for Sign in and Sign out

Camp participants will begin their day at the Pick Up and Drop Off location associated with their camp location (see above). A parent or guardian must accompany camp participants to sign them in on the first day of camp. Drop off begins at 8:30am. All children need to be at the designated drop off area by 8:45am. On the first day of camp, please arrive early as there are a number of administrative steps to complete. (Tennis Half Day camps have different drop off/ pickup times).

Parents will receive a personalized QR Code for each camp participant, specific to that child and their registered camp from our sports@ualberta.ca account on each Friday before camp starts. Parents will need to show this QR Code either on their phone in the email, saved as an image on their phone or printed. This QR code system has improved our camp safety and security as well as sped up the sign in and sign out process during drop off and pick up periods, since we implemented it in 2019.

Presenting the QR Code on your phone

Printed Paper copy (Colour or Black/White)

If you do not have the QR code you will need to provide Photo Identification for sign-in.

  1. Late Drop-off or Early Pick-up procedures

If you are late arriving at camp, proceed to the Drop Off location associated with the camp location (see above). If your child’s group has already departed for their first activity in a different location, camp staff will make arrangements to have your child join their group. If you cannot locate a camp staff member, proceed to the nearest Customer Service Desk. If possible, please call us at 780-492-7171 and leave a message on the voicemail or email us at sports@ualberta.ca to let us know if your child will be late or absent.

If a family does not inform a staff member of an absence by 9:00am on the day the camper is absent, the Green & Gold Summer Camps Administrative team will follow up with the family.

If you know you will be late or early on a future day of camp due to scheduling conflicts, let your camp coaches know at drop off or pick up and they can let you know where camp will be on the day you are arriving early or late.

  1. Lunch & Snack Information

We ask that lunches and snacks are nut-free to keep our camps safe for those potential camp participants with severe food allergies. GGSC Staff cannot guarantee that the environments will be nut-free. Parents, please make sure coaches are aware of any allergies your child may have at the start of camp.

The campers are very active during the day at camp, we encourage parents to over-pack snacks and lunches at the beginning of the week and then make adjustments during the week. This helps keep campers fueled and energized for their activities during the entire day.

There are no merchants available to make lunch and snack purchases during camp. The facilities we use do have some vending machines, however, we ask that you do not send money for kids to purchase from the machines during camp. We do not have the supervision in place to deal with potential issues with lost money, broken machines, stuck product, etc. If you have any questions please email sports@ualberta.ca.
