Age and Grade Guidelines

Age and grade guidelines have been set to be appropriate for the developmental stage of the child, the facility in which the program is held and the program goals. Your child’s safety and enjoyment of our programs are of paramount importance to us and we ask that all parents and guardians adhere to these age guidelines.

In programs for 4 – 7 year-olds, the child must be the appropriate age by the first day of camp; this is for the safety of all campers and staff, particularly around swimming and supervision. We will not accommodate any requests for age exception in these age groups and we reserve the right to ask for proof of age.

In all Camp U of T programs for children ages 8 and older, the participant must be the appropriate age BEFORE December 31, 2024.

If your child is too young to participate this year, we look forward to seeing him/her in our programs next year. If you would like to enroll your older child in a program that is set for younger children, please contact us to discuss the specifics.

Withdrawal Requests & Refunds

All camp withdrawal requests must be made 14 days before the start of the camp week. A partial refund, less a cancellation fee of 10% of the registration fee, will be issued.

No withdrawal and refund requests will be processed within 14 days before the start of the camp, with the exception for medical reasons. A medical note is required. 

No partial refunds are issued for days not attended. The refund policy applies to all camp programs and extended care. 

Withdrawal requests can be made in person, by telephone at 416-978-3436, by emailing the Sport & Rec team, or by emailing the Camp U of T team.

Transfer Requests

Registration transfers are able to be processed between camp offerings and weeks, at no additional charge, as long as space permits. 

If the camp into which you are transferring has a higher registration cost, the difference will need to be paid in person or over the phone, before the transfer is complete.

If the camp into which you are transferring has a lower price AND the request is received at least 14 days prior to the start of camp, you will receive a refund of the difference. There will be no refunds for transfers to a lower priced camp if not requested 14 days in advance.

Please email Sport & Rec or call 416-978-3436 to make a transfer request.

KPE Policies

Your Safety: Inherent Risks

All participants are expected to recognize and accept the risks inherent in their activity. Part of the risk involved in undertaking any activity or program is relative to the participant’s own state of health (physical, mental or emotional) and the awareness, care and skill with which the participant conducts himself or herself in that activity or program. The specific risks vary from one activity to another. All participation in programs and services is voluntary and each participant knowingly assumes all risks associated with his or her own participation.


For life threatening circumstances contact 911 directly.

The yellow call phones/code blue phones located throughout the facilities will link you directly with U of T police and should be used in the event of threats to personal safety and criminal acts.

Public access AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillators) are available at both the Athletic Centre and Varsity Centre in the event of an emergency.
