checklist when packing.

                                             GENERAL INFORMATION

   Registration begins at 5:00pm on Sunday and takes about an hour. Please do not arrive more than 30
minutes earlier, as there will be no staff available to greet and assist you.

   Pick-up is at 11:00am on Saturday. For safety and security reasons, all people picking up campers must
show photo ID and be listed as a parent, guardian or approved alternative on the Camper Registration Form.

   Laundry is only done on the weekends so be sure to have enough clean clothing for a one week period.

   Please label all items with a permanent marker (eg- P.Klose). We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.

     Please call (905)983-8217 for camp information or camper inquires. Messages are picked-up and calls
returned every day between 7:30pm-8:00pm. Do not call the Jungle Cat World office. It would be appreciated if
parents/guardians do not call to inquire about the status of their children. If you don't hear from us, then everything
is fine! It is made clear to the campers during orientation that they are allowed to call home if necessary.
