Public Health directions are not yet clear on when day camps might be able to open so for now registration will be for a wait list. No payment will be processed at this time but a credit card will be taken to hold the place. Please also see our new cancellation policy below, When the provincial government and public health confirm opening and the conditions that will apply we will work from the wait list to confirm registration .
There will be some changes to how we run camp this year. One change, unfortunately, is  we will not be offering snacks and lunches. Campers will need to bring their own food.  As well registration will only be available  for the full week. These are not decisions we have made lightly, but it will help keep our campers and counsellors safe.
Here are some other steps we are taking with the current situation in mind:

  • Small ratios. Our ratio will be 1 to 8. Our counsellor will be assisted by a junior counsellor
  • Each group will have their own designated room. Social distancing will be made visually clear on tables
  • Groups will not not interact with other groups, but operate as a unit throughout the week.
  • Lunchtime will be split and two groups at a time will be supervised in the Cafe.
  • Additional cleaning procedures in place, with sanitation for any craft supplies.

*You may register your child for up to a maximum of 3 weeks of camp
