General theme of program is fun, social enrichment, outdoor life, physical fitness and arts.  We have made several modifications to our day camp programming - with the safety of campers and staff at the fore thought in every activity.  We have divided the camp sessions into six one-week sessions (total of 6 weeks starting June 29th through August 7th.)

COVID-19 Modifications
  • **Important Please Read**
  • Campers will be limited to 105 participants.
  • We will not be able to provide transportation to/from camp. There will be designated drop-off/pick-up locations - by age groups - utilizing the facilities throughout the park. Designated locations are TBD.
  • To eliminate congestion Parents/Guardians are strongly encouraged to complete the daily screening form. Your child/children will not be permitted out of the car until a daily pre-screening is complete - to be verified by a member of the nursing staff on site. A screening will need to be completed (per-camper, per-day, per-week).
  • We will not be able to offer swim lessons. We do not see how we can offer lessons within the guidance of distancing regulations safely.
  • We will not be able to do day trips but will schedule a variety of activities as a substitute.
  • Campers and staff will be reminded to follow CDC guideline - frequent hand washing, coughing & sneezing etiquette (into a tissue or elbow), maintain a 6ft distance whenever possible and wear a mask when it is not.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available when hand washing is not - under the control of the group leader - on a limited use only. DO NOT send your child with his/her own supply of hand sanitizer. We recognize the concerns of sanitizer use/abuse amongst children and encourage you to speak with the nursing staff if you have a concern or send a note with your child.
  • Multi-used items will be sanitized between groups (ie. sports equipment and picnic tables) or single use kits will be provided (ie. craft supplies).
