When you register your child in a day camp or a stayover camp, the merchant must give you a detailed contract that spells out all of the conditions of the agreement. Make sure the contract accurately reflects the promises that were made to you.

Elements that must be indicated in the contract

The contact presents the rights and obligations of both the camp and the parents. It must indicate:

  • your name and address;
  • the merchant’s name and address;
  • the location and date of signature;
  • a description of the services the camp is committed to providing (activities, meals, etc.);
  • the camp’s business hours;
  • the dates on which your child is registered;
  • the cost of the services, on an hourly, daily or weekly basis;
  • the total amount you have to pay;
  • the terms of payment;
  • the clause that explains the contract cancellation terms. This clause is presented in section 46 of the Regulation respecting the application of the Consumer Protection Act.

The merchant must give you a copy of the signed contract along with a resiliation form. You can use that form if you want to cancel your contract.

Total amount of the fees

The total amount indicated in the contract must include:

  • the total cost of the stay or the services provided;
  • any fees pertaining to membership, registration, file creation, evaluation and administration;
  • taxes.
