Is your Week 9 Registered Children not staying for the party?  Can I change my mind or decide on that day?
Children not registered for tickets will still enjoy their regular day  but will not receive food and will be returned by bus to the regular WDHS pick-up location (leaving at 4:30pm, expected arrival approximately 5pm) to be picked up as usual by 6pm.  All children remaining at Cedar Springs MUST be pre-registered for BBQ tickets and picked up there by a parent/guardian with a pre-registered ticket by 6pm. They will not receive food until picked up by their parent / guardian.

In order for us to be able to order food on time, all online registrations must be completed (or cancelled) by 5pm Wednesday August 27th. Any child who does not have family registered tickets will need to return to WDHS on the 4:30pm bus.

We would love for all our families to join us as around 4pm, or as early as possible before 6pm, then we will be able to eat and play together!

Who can come? Can my child’s Grandparents / Aunt / Neighbour be the pick-up and can siblings come?  Can I join my family later?
All immediate family members (or a designated adult pick-up) and siblings of WDCC / Camp Waterdown registered children can pre-register for tickets and attend.  Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate other friends. You may pre-designate an alternative adult pick-up for your child following our standard procedure which is to have the registering parent make a request of the Camp Director, and the designated pick-up adult (or any unrecognized adult pick-up) must present government issued photograph identification and tickets.  So long as you have your own entrance ticket AND your child is accompanied by an approved adult by 6pm, you can join us up to 7pm. This will help accommodate parents / guardians wanting to meet up at the BBQ.

What if I can not make it to Cedar Springs by 6pm? And is there a shuttle bus to the party?
If you can not pick up your child at Cedar Springs by 6pm, then they MUST take the bus back to the WDHS program pick-up location (bus leaves Cedar Springs at 4:30pm) as they will be considered unaccompanied since our care program ends at 6pm. We cannot provide child care for unaccompanied children after 6pm and late arrival protocols will take affect.

No, unfortunately we are not able to provide transportation for families, other than to bring children participating in the Week 9 program that morning.

My child is not Registered for Week 9.  Can I drop them off or bring them to Cedar Springs early?
The fun begins at 4pm.  All children not registered for the Week 9 program must be brought by, accompanied and in the care of their parent at all times in order to join the fun with us at our Cedar Springs BBQ, and may not enter the facility before 4pm.

Can we come and go from the facility?
No, unfortunately we can not provide for families to be able to leave and return to the facility.

This program is available to all families that have been registered either with Camp Waterdown OR our WDCC Toddler / PreSchool Care. If you have a registered login with us, please sign in first to associate these tickets with your Member Account.  Otherwise a preliminary account will be auto-created for you.

EMAIL WARNING: We are currently having some issues with our ticket emailing system.  Please check your SPAM / JUNK folder if you don’t receive your confirmations in 10 minutes. You may also print your tickets from the Events Tab in your Family Registration page if logged in.
