Why On-Site Medics Camp?
We want Medics Camp to be a unique experience for all that attend. Our program tends to attract like minded kids so whether virtual or onsite, you’re likely to meet some new friends. For some of you, Medics Camp may be the first step in your medical journey and we are excited and honoured to be a part of your future.

Leaders in Training (LIT)
Medics Camp LIT is a different kind of leadership course. We're looking for youth ages 13-15 who are interested in the medical field, like working with kids and want to expand their leadership skills in ways that will help them at school and in their communities and careers. They will participate in a Red Cross Standard First Aid & CPR level C course while attending camp and be eligible to receive certification upon successful completion of the program. They will have fun meeting new friends and being part of the Medics Camp team.

ONE WEEK ONLY! Join Medics Camp August 23-27th at the Kids Cuckoo's Nest in Aurora for our only on-site camp of 2021. It's only available to kids ages 5-8.
We expect public health measures to still be in place to some extent in late August but hopefully at the green level or better. We will only be accepting 20 Munchkins and 20 Mini Medics at this time. If spaces are full (and we do expect them to go fast), please put your name on the waiting list in the registration system when prompted. That way if we are allowed to have more than 50 people in the 10,000 sq ft building we can contact you if spaces open up.
Doctors wear masks at the hospital to prevent the transmission and spread of germs and everyone at the Medics Camp clinic will too! If your Medic is unable to wear a mask while at our onsite camp this summer, we recommend they register for one of our virtual camp sessions instead. A welcome email will be sent to parents the first week of August with details on our sign-in and sign-out process and other safety protocols.
Before & After Care: Kids Cuckoo's Nest will be offering this service. Hours, pricing and other details will be emailed in a couple of weeks to those who have registered for camp. We understand that you may not know your work schedule this summer so we'll check back with you closer to camp for extended care registration and payment through Kids Cuckoo's Nest.
