Your children will participate in an abundance of interactive stations to discover many tools and techniques used by indigenous communities and those of the past to transform maple sap into syrup!
- Friday June 7 (STEM at Guy B. Brown)
Today’s activities will involve Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics! We will also be walking to the Waterdown library where children can have some quiet time to look at books and time to work with a small group engaging in research for the theme of the day. There we will be exploring all aspects of STEM with interactive hands on activities, an abundance of books, iPad learning games and relaxing play time. When we return we will be building catapults, tunnels and bridges & practicing our art skills by carving and crafting with apples.

Changes & Additional Days
Making changes is easy. But DON’T try to use the registration form link.
For changes (switches, cancellations and additions) you can either email us the change (make sure to mention the child’s name and program) at email@example.com, OR you can use the CLICK to Change Request link found under each Registration in your Family Registration page. Space is limited so we recommend registering early.
Making additions is also easy. You CAN use the same form link to ADD days not already booked.
For adding days you can either contact us as above, or you can re-use the registration form. Just be careful to ONLY add the new dates and not select the days you already booked (the form doesn’t know that and you will be billed twice). Check your Current Registrations tab on your Family Registration page first to see what you have already booked and paid for.
Some families choose to only select one or two days of program at a time. That is ok, just be aware that we may sell out space by the time the last PA Days roll around (particularly trip days).
No refunds for cancellations will be given for Program Fees within 15 days of the Program Day start, and a 50% refund is given for cancellations within 30 days of the program start.
Due to the high demand, limited enrolment and need to secure program resources; we require our families’ full commitment upon registration. Credits or refunds are not given for illness, absences or program / facility closures due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
Registration and Wait List Policy
Space in our programs is limited (and we adhere to Ministry guidelines for safe and effective Adult/Child ratios). We reserve the right to refund and cancel enrolments as needed if an accidental overbooking or program cancellation occurs.
If the programs do fill up, parents will be offered a spot on our Waiting List; in case we are able to open another group, or spaces open up due to cancellations. Wait List priority is not guaranteed as we do not take deposits, and we normally offer available space first to families previously enrolled in one of our programs.
The registration process consists of these steps:
- Login or Create a New Membership (using the form at the very bottom of this page), if you haven’t already got on.
- Create or Review a Parent Record and Child Records (IF they need to be updated)
- Use the Program Registration links that will appear under your child’s name in your Child Record & Program Registration tab.
Our registration forms also allow a “Save and Continue” link function so that you can save your place while you look for information or answers.)×
Credit Card payments will be processed immediately through PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account). You will be given instructions on the form and in an automated confirmation email for submitting other types of payments.
Please add “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your Contacts / Address Book so that your confirmation emails don’t get flagged as “junk.”
You may return to your Family Registration page at any time to review your registrations or to check on their status. This is also where you will find your Tax Receipts at the beginning of each year.
