Camp COVID-19 safety measures
Our programs will ensure compliance with current regulations as set by the Province of Ontario and Waterloo Region Public Health and are subject to change.

  • Campers will be required to complete daily COVID-19 screening (details on this will be shared before the start of program)
  • For the safety of our campers, their families and our staff programming will adhere to current health and safety measures, including reduced class sizes and cleaning protocols
  • Some campers may need support or an accommodation to adhere to safety measures, such as masking or social distancing
