The Municipality of Clarington says their popular summer camp programs are back– with a lot of extra health and safety measures.
The actual camps will launch at select sites on July 20.
Due to strict physical distancing requirements, there will be a max of eight kids and two councillors per camp.
Five of these modified camps will run every week. They’ll be at the South Courtice Arena, the Courtice Community Complex, the Bowmanville Indoor Soccer Centre and the Diane Hamre Recreation Complex.
Each site will only host one group per week, except for the Diane Hamre Rec Complex, which is large enough for two groups at a time.
All campers will undergo strict screening for COVID-19.
Your kids won’t be able to take part if anyone in their household has symptoms of the virus, has been outside of Canada in the last two weeks, or has spent time with someone who has tested positive or is suspected to have the virus.
Limited spaces are available. Camps are open to all children ages six to 12, including siblings who live in the same home.
“The health and safety of all campers and staff is our main priority,” said George Acorn, Director of Community Services. “We realize that this year, camps will be different, and activities will be modified. But I am confident that our highly-trained staff can offer children the best possible experience.”
