Activity Clubs 

Q - Does a parent/guardian need to be present during activity club? 
A - While a parent/guardian does not need to be on camera with the child, there does need to be a responsible adult in the house with the child at all times. 

Q - How long are activity clubs? 
A - Activity clubs run every Monday-Friday (except weeks with a statutory holiday) varying in length between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on camp and age group, see Camp Schedule and Fees for more information.

Q - Can multiple children participate in an activity club from the same computer? 
A - Yes, children can share a computer if they are in the same camp. However, each child must be registered for that week of activity club separately. This excludes campers registered in any of our Cyber Chase camps. Cyber Chase campers must each have access to their own computer during activity club.

Q - What kind of supplies do activity clubs require?
