FAQ's

When will my bag be ready for pick-up?

Your Camp in a Bag program will be available for pick-up depending on when it was ordered and what pick-up/delivery date you chose. Please reference the charts under Basic Bags and Deluxe Bags and chose the appropriate code for your desired pick-up or delivery date. 

What age is Camp in a Bag for?

Each Camp in a Bag program is designed for children aged 4 to 16 years. Each Camp in a Bag option comes with a suggested age range for reference. 

Do I need to purchase a Camp in a Bag for each of my children?

Each Bag is built to accommodate one camper. 

Can I gift a Camp at Home Bag to a friend?

Yes! Families can only purchase bags through their own e-Play accounts. Upon purchasing a bag, you will be prompted for a camper name and a delivery address (if you selected the delivery option). If you would like the bag to be delivered to an address that is different from the address listed on the account, you can indicate so there. 

My camper has a disability and/or unique need and requires modified Camp in a Bag options. Can accommodations be made?

Yes, accommodations to the Camp in a Bag contents can be made on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the cmabrucco@aurora.ca outlining your camper’s restrictions to discuss an inclusive Camp in a Bag option for your child’s unique needs.
