KOSC Summer Mega-Post!

Hello KOSC families!

Summer is just around the corner, and we are looking forward to more fun in the sun! KOSC staff have worked hard to put together a fun and engaging calendar of field trips and activities. Check it out!

Summer Calendar 2018

Please make sure to read over the following Summer Registration Policies carefully.

KOSC Summer Policies 2018

Here is the sign-up form for the KOSC Summer Camp program. Early Bird Registration will start on Friday May 4th for current members with at least one regular space in Before or After School Care and on Friday May 11th for all other families. Please note that there are separate Early Bird deadlines for Weeks 1-4 and Weeks 5-9.

Summer 2018 Registration Form

The form above is just the sign-up form for summer. All children attending our programs must also have a full registration package on file, so if your child has never attended KOSC before, please ensure that you complete the following forms, attaching all necessary documentation (photo, immunization records, etc) and submit it along with your summer registration form and PAD authorization.

Registration Package Final 2018-19

If your child will be starting kindergarten in September 2018, they may still attend KOSC Summer Camp; however, as they are not yet considered “school-age” until their first day of kindergarten, we will need to apply for an exemption from Vancouver Island Health Authority. In order to complete the application, we will need you to submit a letter stating why you feel that it will be beneficial for them to participate in the program. Here is a useful template for composing the letter.

Exemption Letter for Pre-Kindies 2018

Our Youth Adventure Program (YAP) is open to children who will be going into Grade 4 or higher in September 2018. Our programs are licensed for children up to the age of 12; if your child will be turning 13 over the summer, please speak to the Program Manager or Youth Coordinator about obtaining an exemption. Registration dates are the same as for KOSC Summer Camp.

YAP Registration Form 2018

All families registering for KOSC Summer Camp or YAP will need to complete a Summer PAD Authorization Form. If you have previously submitted a PAD form and your banking information hasn’t changed, you do not need to attach a void cheque or official bank statement of account.

August Early Bird Deadline Reminder

Hope everyone’s summer is off to a great start!

If you are registering/ have registered your child(ren) for summer camp, this is a friendly reminder that the early bird deadline for August (Weeks 5 through 9, including July 30 and 31) is today.

If you have any changes to the days you would like your child(ren) registered for this month of summer camp, please let us know by end of day today by email/in writing to avoid charges. After this date, any days in Weeks 5 through 9 will be nonrefundable. Additionally, after today, any additional days of care requested will be considered drop-in spaces. This means that the rate will go up to $40/day, and spots will be dependent on space availability.

Confirmations for August will be sent out within the next week.
Have a good day!

Change of plans for Pro-D Day today

Due to the generally un-summer-like weather today, we have changed our field trip plans for the day. Instead of going to Island View Beach, we will be going to Star Cinema to see Incredibles 2. We will be leaving KOSC at around 12:30 and returning by 3:30.

While we are off-site, you can get ahold of us on our KOSC cell phone at 250-415-2035.

Email Update

Our email seems to be working again; however, Telus reports that customers may continue to experience intermittent connectivity issues, so calling the phone is still probably a better bet at this point if you need to get ahold of us.  🙂
