How do I register?

Do I have to attend PA to go to the camps?

No, everyone is welcome! Students between Kindergarten and Gr. 12 can join our programs. PACE camps are intended to serve the community inside and outside of Pacific Academy.

Can International Students register for PACE?

Unfortunately we are unable to accept international student registrations at this time. If you are interested in registering for Pacific Academy’s international summer camp programming, please contact Jan Dirks at Pacific Academy.

My child is going into Grade 5; may he still go to a camp that is for Grade 6-8?

Yes. The grades/ages for the camps are recommended ages. If a child is within a year older/younger than the recommended grade for a certain course, he or she may still enroll in it understanding that the material will be taught at the recommended ages. Camps are available to students from Kindergarten to Grade 8.

Can I register my child on the first day of camp?

Yes, you can register on the first day of camp but only at the High School Gym foyer, and only if space is available.

What is your refund policy?

All requests for refunds must be made in writing. Cheque refunds, less a $20 administrative charge per cancellation, will be issued for all camp cancellations up to two weeks (14 days) before the first day of the camp. There are NO REFUNDS within the two week period before the first day of the camp.Pro-rating and refunds are NOT available for days absent, or for any other reasons.

What is your cancellation policy?

PACE reserves the right to cancel a camp by 5:30pm one week before the start date. In such cases, all fees for a cancelled camp/course will be refunded or transferred to a different course with space available. There will be no discounts for cancelled camps.

What is your course change policy?

Course changes must be emailed to the PACE account at pace@pacificacademy.net and a $25 administrative charge/course change will be issued. If there is then an amount owing, a notice will be emailed back and the participant will be switched into the new course selection upon paying remaining balance. There are NO course changes within the 2 week period of the first day of camp.

Can I still buy a T-shirt if I did not order one when I registered?

There will be a limited number of t-shirts for sale at the registration table for $15 (cash only), but once they are sold out, then there are no more available.

Where do the camps take place?

All camps take place on the Pacific Academy Campus at 10238 168th St., Surrey, BC (unless otherwise stated)

Is there a place for my child to buy a lunch?

No, all campers who are staying for both morning and afternoon courses need to bring a lunch with them or parents can drop off their lunch to the cafeteria at 12noon.

Where do I pick-up and drop-off my child?

For convenience, all drop-off and pick up will be at the Pacific Academy High School Gym entrance (next to the running track).

How come there is no before/after camp supervision this year?

In July 2011, there were only 2 families needing this, so it is not a big enough demand.

How early may I drop off my child before camp?

Supervision will be available starting 10 minutes before camp. If you must drop off slightly earlier, your child must remain seated quietly in the bleachers of the High School Gym and not be running around as the PACE TEAM staff meeting takes place there from 8:30-8:50am Tuesday - Friday mornings.

How do I know what to bring to my child's camp?

An email will be sent out prior to the start of each camp and if anything additional is required it will be included in this email. In general, all children should bring a backpack (clearly labelled with his/her name), a water bottle, a couple snacks, a lunch (if staying for both camps), a hat and sunscreen.
