Access to the Medics Camp Online Clinic via Zoom
Lunch Room Lounge Access from 12pm-1pm. Medics are invited to bring their camp lunch and join their friends virtually in the doctor's lounge for a daily "move and groove" event. It might be a dance party, yoga, fitness fun or Tai Chi. Each day will be a different lunch time event.
We know that many parents are still working from home and keeping their kids actively engaged in a fun educational camp experience is important. All campers will receive in their materials kit a daily "warm up" that we encourage kids do prior checking in to camp each morning. The "warm up" gives them a jump start on the daily medical theme. This means they can start their camp day a little earlier and for work at home parents, think of it as free virtual before care.
NEW! Registration Deadlines: In order to ensure enough time for packaging and delivery of your child's camp materials kit, you must register by the deadline date shown below. If your shipping address is outside of Ontario or a rural postal code, we recommend registering at least 3 weeks prior to your first camp week.
We'll be using Canada Post pre-paid boxes so we don't expect any issues but we strongly recommend that you register as early as possible to ensure that your kit arrives in time for camp. Medics Camp is not responsible for shipping delays and there are no refunds if your kit doesn't arrive in time for camp.
NEW! Curbside Pick-UP Option: We heard you! When you register using our new system, you'll have the option to avoid the shipping fee and guarantee that your child has their material kit in time for camp by picking it up yourself.
NEW! Camp Orientation Sessions: We want the first day of camp to be easy and stress free for both the camper and their parent or caregiver so we'll be holding several camp orientation sessions by Zoom in the weeks ahead. These sessions are a great opportunity to find out how to prepare for our virtual camp and ask any questions you may have. We have designed our program so that even parents or caregivers who don't normally feel comfortable with technology can easily sign their camper in each day and many kids will even be able to sign themselves in using items found in their materials kit.
We're excited to announce the launch of our new registration system on June 8th. Now, families will be able to easily register for multiple weeks, sibling discounts will automatically applied at checkout and you'll even be able to print off your tax receipt from the portal. The new system will even make it faster to register for future camps or programs.

Q: Are the camp weeks all different?
Q: If my child attended Medics Camp in the past, will Medics Camp online be the same or different?
A: A new version of Medics Camp was created in preparation of the onsite 2020 camp season called "Explore!". If your child attended Medics Camp in the past, they would have enjoyed our original version which we now call "Discover". We will indicate beside each camp week which version it's based on (Discover or Explore). Remember, if your child has attended camp with us in the past and are moving up an age group, the Discover version of camp would still be a new experience for them. As kids move up in age groups, the theme based activities get more advanced.
Q: Are there any prerequisites for camp sessions?
A: No. Each camp is designed to be stand alone. Kids can register for week 2 for example without having joined us for week 1.
Q: When you choose a half day camp, is it the morning or afternoon?
A: The half day session is currently only being offered in the AM.
Q: How do you know which topics will be covered?
A: Click on the "online camp" tab at the top of this page to view our our weekly themes. Note that depending on the age group and whether a child is in a half day or full day session, will determine how much time is spent on a particular theme.
Q: I work at home, will my 5 year old be able to attend camp on their own?
A: Yes, that's the goal. We're creating tools to make it easy for even our youngest campers to attend camp. These tools will be provided to registered families in their material kit and through email.
Q: How do we get our materials kit?
A: If you are unable to pick up your camp materials kit at our curbside location in Newmarket you can choose the shipping option when you register. The fee is a flat $20 per camper per week. We regret that we are unable to offer any shipping discounts at this time.
