Covid-19 Program Modifications 

We’re listening to Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit every day to stay informed on the steps we can take to ensure our procedures follow all the public health recommendations like hand washing, physical distancing, monitoring campers and staff for symptoms and more. The plan we are developing follows all these recommendations so you can be safe and healthy at camp. 

  • Health screening: Prior to arrival to camp, camp families will sign a form when you get dropped off at day camp.  The form will declare that you:
    • Do not have a fever
    • Have not come in contact with a person with COVID-19 within the last 14 days
    • Have not travelled outside the country within the last 14 days
    • Are not experiencing a cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea and/or vomiting

  • Handwashing:  By now you are probably a pro at washing your hands for 20 seconds. We will ask you to wash your hands when you arrive at camp, throughout the day and before and after lunchtime and snacks. Handwashing stations or hand sanitizer with a minimum of 60%-70% alcohol will be made available.
  • Visitors will not be permitted inside camp: This helps to safeguard our efforts in screening campers and keeping everyone safe.
  • Physical Distancing: Where possible, we will help you have 2 metres of distance between you and other campers. However, due to the nature of camp and the need for our staff to closely supervise you and other campers, we will strive for this goal but it may not be achieved at all times. Activities that have a lot of contact will not be included whereas activities with momentary contact will played a lot!
