We encourage our campers to travel to and from camp by the buses. All buses leave and arrive at the Westmount High School parking lot. Buses leave promptly at 2:00pm and return at 12pm. If you are driving your child to camp it is important that you arrive between 3:30pm - 4:00pm so that your child’s transition into camp is a smooth one. If you are picking up your child, you must notify the camp office at least 2 days in advance. Pick up is at 9:30am.
If you have to change your child's transportation plans either before or during camp session, please notify the camp office immediately so we can make the necessary arrangements.
Drop off location:Westmount High School
NOTE: BUSES DO NOT WAIT FOR ANYONE!
Has your child’s behavior changed since he or she returned from camp?
Yes it has. She was a very shy little girl who did not have much self esteem. I have noticed a big changes; she is able to communicate more of her feelings as well as being more open to new ideas. I have also noticed more independence.
What great memory did you take with you when you left camp?
At camp, I learned how to use my talents and skills to give of myself to others. Creating friendships and establishing trust with my campers was a heart touching experience. I gained confidence working with children of all ages including how to lead teenagers in becoming great camp counselors. There are an abundance of C.A.M. memories but one that I hold dear is the last camp fire of the session, when all the fun has been had and what remains is the goodbye the following morning with a smile on your face and tears down your cheeks. Your heart grows a little more each time as you hope to see those faces again soon.
How was your child’s first time away?
Thanks you to all the members of Camp Amy Molson for giving our daughter the experience of a lifetime. She couldn’t stop talking about all her experiences at camp! It was her first time away from home for such a long period and I truly feel she has matured in some ways and is more appreciative.
What has Camp Amy Molson taught your child?
My daughter has experienced things at camp that she never would have done at home. She has good memories, she will never forget. My daughter has been going to Camp Amy Molson since she was 5 years old. She is now 11 years old. In this time she has earned many things. She swims very well thanks to the camp. She has also learned to be more independent which was hard to do at home as she was an extremely sheltered child. It has also taught her to accept other children for what they are, etc. Thank you Camp Amy Molson.
The camp does not assume any responsibility for lost, soiled, or damaged items. All clothing and sleeping bags should be CLEARLY LABELED with the child’s full name. Many children find comfort in bringing along their favorite teddy bear or stuffed animal; again please make sure items are labeled. Your child may also want to capture their camping experience on film, feel free to send him/her with a disposable camera.
The following is a list of the minimum articles your child will need to bring to
Only send your child with enough toiletries to last the session. Most of the time, the child will not return with them. You can find travel sizes at the dollar store or pharmacy.
Camp Amy Molson is not responsible for lost or stolen goods. Camp Amy Molson does not encourage bringing iPods, gaming devices, cellphones and things of this nature. These items are often misplaced or damaged and considering the high cost of these items, bringing them to camp is not advised.
