Summer Camps 2020
We have decided to run two limited COVID-19 adapted Summer Camps to accommodate families requiring care in our community. This year's camp activities will all take place in the Jack Purcell Community Centre, both indoors and outdoors. Activities will themed around be good ol' fashioned summer fun, with sprinkler activities, crafts, yoga and sports --- all while making sure kids stay healthy and happy! Check out our sample day schedule here! Weather permitting, we have also secured camp-only access to St. Luke's wading pool, to cool off in the summer sun!
We will be running weekly camps from July 6, 2020- August 21, 2020.
Please note that times have changed! We will be starting the intake process at 8:30 a.m. everyday; parents and children are to line up 2 meters apart outside and come in one at a time for our intake assessment each morning. Temperatures and health check-ins will be done each morning.
Intake will only be from 8:30 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. any late arrivals will not be permitted entry to the camp for the day.
Children can then enter the camp which will run from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. (Hours may be subject to change due to COVID-19 restrictions)
*We will not be allowing parents into the building at any point*
What to Bring?
Items from home will be limited to:
*Label all items you send your child with daily, do not send them with anything else.
The cost will be $260/per week per child. (no discounts of any kind except for families on our subsidy program).
First come first serve, registration is now open online.
Please note that ACTIVE Net, our registration portal does charge service fees. Apologies, we do not have control over these fees.
Ratios and Camps
We will have two camps running in the building for ages 5 -12 and will divide the children based on ages after registration. Each group will include two staff and no more than 8 children and each “bubble” of 10 will not cross paths with any other group.
*Once everyone has registered, we will divide the children, siblings always need to be in the same cohort of 8 children. You will receive an email as to which camp your child will be participating in prior to the start date.
Health and Safety
We will be putting children on waiting lists once camps are full. If the camp is full please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be put on the list in a first come first serve manner; you will be contacted if there is a spot.
Please note that due to volume of email, we will not be able answer emails requesting status on the wait list -- we apologize for this.
If your child is exhibiting any signs and symptoms of illness, they will be put into an isolation room and you will be called. Parents must come immediately and pick up their child; if they do not come in a timely manner, we reserve the right to remove the child from camp for the rest of the summer.
Camps are subject to change at any time due to COVID-19 restrictions.
