What happens if public health restrictions don’t allow for group gatherings?
We’ve got a plan! In fact, we’ve got Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, etc, depending on what restrictions may be. Most of our camp time will be spent outdoors, with canopies to keep everyone comfortable rain or shine. Each week of camp has a limited number of spaces, and cohorts may be used to make group sizes even smaller.
The health and safety of your kids and our staff is our number one priority. We have adapted our programming over the last year to make sure we are complying with all public health guidelines, and we won’t stop now!
What happens if day camps are not allowed to run?
If day camps are not permitted to run, you will be issued a full refund, or you may take a credit for a different week of camp if future camps are able to run.
Do you plan to run virtual day camps if in-person camps are not allowed to run?
While we had a lot of success running virtual classes over the winter, we do not plan to turn Summer Arts Day Camps into a virtual program. We want our camps to get your kids active and creative while being safe and healthy! To us, this means giving them an opportunity to engage in awesome activities with our Camp Directors, Instructors, and other campers, not sitting in front of a screen.
Is each week of camp the same?
While each week will contain the same elements, the activities will be different each week. Different science experiments, different games, and different crafts means a camper who comes to all seven weeks of camp will have a different experience every day! Of course, some camper favourites will be included each week – like the splash pad and swimming!
Are masks required?
Masks are to be worn at all times while indoors. They may be taken off during lunch on days when we are eating inside but the children will be socially distanced. While outside, masks are not required when the kids are socially distanced, however they are to be worn during activities where they may be in close proximity with each other. Kids are also free to wear their masks at all times if they are more comfortable doing so.
What happens in the case of inclement weather?
Weather can be unpredictable, but we have preparations for inclement weather. We will have tents set up in case of rain during day camps. If the weather becomes dangerous, we will not keep the children outside. In case of very hot weather or a thunderstorm, we have a big enough facility that we will be able to space out the children and be able to keep them safe inside the building. When inside the building, the children will be required to wear their masks.
When will I receive the camp schedule for the week once registered?
A welcome letter with a camp schedule and all the information you need for your week of camp will be emailed the week before your registered week of camp.
