HEALTH AND SAFETY

COVID-19 GUIDE

The safety of our campers, staff, and families are our top priority. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our policies and procedures. Our protocols adhere to Toronto Public Health guidelines and have also grown out of case-studies of successful operations of our summer day camps held during the summer 2020, and our day camp held in summer 2021.

Given the evolving landscape of COVID-19, we will continue to revisit and update this guide. 

 

  • Daily Temperature check and screening for all staff and campers at the designated drop-off points or prior to entering our campsite.

  • Covid-19 awareness and prevention training of all staff.

  • Robust and frequent cleaning and sanitization of our campsite, including all high touch surfaces at each activity. 

  • Sanitization standards and respiratory etiquette for all campers and staff. 

  • Appropriate face mask or face shield to be worn by all campers and staff when physical distancing is not possible

  • Maximum of 15 people per group (including staff)

  • Each group will have their own “cabin” (personalized indoor classroom space)

  • Ensure physical distancing between groups

  • Campers remain with their designated group for the duration of the camp day.

  • Large gatherings will be avoided.

  • Minimizing the sharing of materials.

  • Designating ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ bins, which will be used to ensure materials are cleaned between users.

  • Drop-off and pick-up will be staggered. A detailed plan regarding safe arrival will be communicated to you by late spring.  

  • While we welcome you to see our camp in action, visitors will not be permitted to enter the building without making arrangements in advance through the camp office.

  • Staff and campers are not to come to camp if they are ill.

    • If a camper or staff begins to experience symptoms of COVID-19, they will be brought to a supervised isolation space.

    • If a camper or staff tests positive for COVID-19, we will follow the recommendations of Toronto Public Health, begin a deep-clean as directed, and investigate known points of contact. Toronto Public health is responsible for determining if an outbreak exists, declaring an outbreak, and providing direction for next steps.
