About our Summer Day Camp program

The Municipality of Leamington is committed to providing quality sport and recreation programs for children that promote healthy growth and development. Our programs are designed to be age appropriate, safe and fun.

We maintain a 10:1 camper to counsellor ratio.

 ePACT - Enrolment is Mandatory 

We use an online Day Camp Information system called ePACT. ePACT offers a contactless, paperless method for us to securely collect, manage and access essential participant information and updates. This includes emergency contact information, medical forms, waivers, consent forms and personal health and safety needs. ePACT ensures we have a way to contact you in the event of an illness, injury, or other emergency.

With ePACT, you will only need to enter your child’s information once, regardless of how many days he/she will be attending. Information entered is secure and can be updated at any time. Parents/guardians will be required to upload photos of their child and their approved pick-up contacts directly to ePACT.

All invitations to ePACT will automatically be sent with your initial registration in our summer Day Camp program. Parents will need to create an account if they haven’t already signed up for an account in previous years.
