PA Day Camps

This interactive, hands-on camp will challenge children to create using a variety of materials and methods. Each daily workshop includes open studio time for children to explore materials, group challenges to encourage innovation, and a STEM lab so each camper has something to take home and remember their awesome day at TinkerLab! 

Our upcoming November 25th P.A. Day will be our annual Gingerbread House making workshop. All children will build a keepsake Gingerbread House and decorate an edible House as well. This workshop is hosted to children 4-10 years.

Frequently Asked Camp questions

Anchor 2

We follow the Provincial Camp Health and Safety Guidelines and all of our counsellors are pre-screened. Please read our Safety Plan to review our health refund policy and the precautions we are taking to ensure a healthy and safe program for your child. 


  1. What are we doing to keep a clean and safe environment?

We are committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for all children attending our programs. All children and staff are monitored for illness upon entry into the studio. If a child is found to be ill they will be denied entry into the studio and are not allowed to participate in programming until he/she is symptom free. 

We have a number sanitizing policies put in place. We have invested in a disinfecting machine, UVC light wands and child safe sanitizing products to clean and disinfect all furniture, surfaces, utensils, electronic and coding materials as well as an air filtering system.

2. Is my child expected to wear a mask while at camp? Who will provide the mask?

In accordance with Halton Public Health regulations, TinkerLab no longer requires all adults or children to wear a face mask or covering while in the studio. We encourage children to wear a mask but understand that many children are not comfortable with wearing a mask at this time. We do have paper masks that are available for all children and adults and these can be decorated (to make wearing the masks a little more fun). 


3. If a member of our family comes into contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 can my child still attend camp?

Children are welcome to attend camp as long as they are negative for Covid and do not have any ill symptoms. *Families can use the health refund policy or transfer their registration to a friend or family member.


4. What happens if someone in the camp develops symptoms of COVID-19?

If a child attends camp and during his/her time at camp receives a positive COVID-19 test TinkerLab will contact Halton Public Health and follow all recommendations set out. 

Children will not be able to attend camp if he/she has any of the following:

-elevated temperate over 38.0 degrees C. 

-acute cold (severe green nasal discharge and/or severe coughing)

-undiagnosed or contagious skin rash or infection

-lice, ringworm or other bodily infestations

-if the child is lethargic and cannot participate in the usual daily routine. 



*A sick child needs to be symptom free or on antibiotics (prescribed by a doctor) for 24 hours before returning to TinkerLab for all illnesses


5. How will meals and snacks be delivered at camp to ensure safety?

All children bring their own snacks and lunches to camp every day. Desks are cleaned and sanitized prior to the start of every snack and lunch.


6. What will happen if TinkerLab is forced to close due to COVID-19 or another emerging respiratory virus?

If TinkerLab is forced to close due to COVID-19 or another emerging respiratory virus parents will be able to use the fees already paid (for in studio camps) for programming between January 1st, 2023 and December 31st, 2023. Refunds will not be issued to families if camps are required to close due to COVID-19. Unused fees can be used for any type of programming activity including camps, birthday parties (in studio, at home or virtual) or classes.


7. Can I receive a refund if my child is sick?

We want to assure families that they will not be charged for missing camp due to illness. It is the policy of TinkerLab that if a child is unable to participate in camp programming then he/she will be able to make up the missed day by December 31st, 2023 in any of our camps (based on availability). Parents/guardians must contact the studio prior to the start of the day to notify the staff of an absence. This refund can be used for up to 2 missed camp days in any one full week of registered camp (full day or half day) during the summer. PA Days and single day camps (Winter Break Camp or March Break Camp) are not eligible for refunds due to illness. *Camp sessions can be transferred to family or friends without penalty. 


8. What happens if it rains?

TinkerLab is an indoor camp. Our camp runs rain or shine. We do go outside each day if the weather permits but in the event of rain or extreme weather we are able to stay inside (and dry!)

9. What does my child need to bring to camp?

All children are required to bring two snacks, a full lunch, refillable water bottle and a complete change of clothes EVERY DAY. We also ask that you send closed-toe walking shoes. We do go outside most days and children need to have comfortable shoes for outdoor play. Please send your child wearing clothes that can get dirty and stained. We love to get messy and use a variety of mixed media art materials, glue, etc.
