To reconsider a council decision, one of the councillors who voted in the majority must move to reconsider the matter and get the support of a majority of seven members of council to put the matter back on the agenda. Why would the majority of Town council support that when the opportunity for public input already existed? Hinton Town Council values your timely input as your opportunity on important issues to provide feedback between elections. Sometimes, citizens assume a proposed motion or by-law will get support, and therefore don’t submit their comments before a decision is made. This can lead to disappointment after the decision” is made. Please don’t assume the proposal will be supported. Public comments supporting and not supporting a matter, preferably with reasons, should be provided. Particularly when public feedback was invited, Hinton town council will not reconsider the matter. It’s easy, simply go to Town’s main website under “Hinton Listens” and-then “share a concern”, or phone your favorite councillor, or answer a Town survey, etc., etc. Bottom line, to be heard, please submit your comments in a timely fashion when invited to do so.
If your concern is of an administrative nature, Town Council does not rule on these matters and the Town Manager has the final decision.
Sign-out occurs starting at 4pm in the same place. On the registration form there is a spot for you to indicate who is authorized to pick up your child(ren). If this has changed prior to the week of camp, please notify the Camp Coordinator. The authorized people are the only people that we will send your child(ren) home with. Photo I.D. will be required at the time of pick-up. A handwritten, signed note is required if your child may leave on his/her own at the end of the day (if we have not yet been notified).
When parents are late picking up their children, we are required to pay our staff for extra time worked. A staff member is required to stay until all children are picked up. Any parent picking up after 5pm will be charged $5 cash for every 15 minutes they are late.

Stages of discipline for inappropriate behavior: 1. Child is given a verbal warning and instructed that their actions are not acceptable at Discovery Camp. Child receives a time-out if behavior continues, a Coordinator is involved, and the child’s parent is informed at the end of the day that if the child’s behavior continues, the child will not be welcome at Discovery Camp for either a short period of time or the rest of summer.
2. Child is isolated from the activity and a parent is asked to come pick their child up. The child may be suspended or permanently dismissed from further camp days and fees for the missed days will be reimbursed.
3. Extreme misbehaviour such as bullying, use of inappropriate language, physical violence, ignoring or disrespecting Camp Staff, stealing or destruction of property may result in a decision between the Camp Coordinator and Recreation Coordinator to bypass the above steps.
