Nut-Aware

 

Question: Is Olympia a Nut-Aware camp? 

Answer:

Peanut & Nut Policy-Olympia a Nut-Aware Camp
Due to variables outside our control, Olympia does not claim to be a peanut-free or nut-free environment. We consider Camp Olympia a nut-aware facility by taking the following proactive steps:
  * Olympia does not knowingly serve food that contains nuts. We do however permit the use of products that list “may contain traces of peanut products” or “may contain traces of nut products” in the ingredients.
* Our tuck shop does not knowingly stock or sell products that contain nuts. We do however sell products that list “may contain traces of peanut products” or “may contain traces of nut products” in the ingredients.
* We request that campers, staff, coaches, and guests do not bring products containing nuts onto our facility.
* If found, staff are instructed to remove products containing nuts from the property.
Campers prone to anaphylactic reactions are required to bring an epi-pen and always carry one on their body. Olympia does have several epi-pens located strategically throughout the camp. Parents of campers with a known anaphylactic allergy must disclose this condition on the camper’s medical forms during registration. We encourage parents to talk with the medical staff at Olympia’s Health Centre and their children’s cabin leader upon their arrival. Olympia, takes every step possible to make our camp a nut-aware facility, however Olympia does not assume any liability for adverse reactions to food consumed, or items one may come in contact with while eating our products.

 

Tuck & Pro Shop

 

Question: Is there a Tuck and Pro Shop?

Answer: The Tuck Shop is our camp store which sells a variety of different products for purchase.

Each camper has their own account with a pre-paid amount that has been set up by the camper’s family. Each time your camper makes a purchase, the amount will be deducted directly from the account.

 

At the end of your child’s stay, any unused funds remaining in the account over $5.00 will be refunded back onto the card that was originally used to set up the account. No money will be returned to the camper.

 

We ask that you complete the account set-up BEFORE your child’s arrival.

The following list will give you an idea of the items available in the Tuck and Pro Shop.

 

  • O.S.C. Hoodies ($45.00)            
  • Shorts & T-shirts ($20.00)
