COVID-19 Policy

In accordance with Provincial and York Region safety guidelines, we are dedicated to providing a safe environment for both camp staff and participants this summer. As such, we are enforcing a number of policies to ensure that everyone remains healthy and safe:
 

Masks

The wearing of masks or other face coverings by both participants and staff is mandatory.

 

 

 

Social Distancing 

In order to aid with social distancing efforts, we have installed floor markers throughout our location, and ask that parents/guardians take the time to discuss this with campers prior to the start of a session. For visual reference, the floor markers will appear as follows:

 

  

Daily Screenings 

We will be conducting daily pre-screenings at drop-off and it is mandatory that parents/guardians be present to answer questions relating to their child’s daily health, regarding potential symptoms.  

 

Symptoms

It is strongly recommended that any client/participant exhibiting signs/ symptoms of COVID-19 stay at home. Symptoms can include:

 

Common

-Fever (temperature of 37.8 degrees C or greater)

-New or worsening cough

-Shortness of Breath

 

Uncommon

-Sore throat or difficulty swallowing

-New smell or taste disorders

-Nausea, diarrhea, and/or abdominal pain

-Runny nose or nasal congestion (unrelated to seasonal allergies, postnasal drip, etc)

 

There are also a number of less-common symptoms of COVID-19. For an up-to-date list of

all symptoms, which changes as we learn more about the virus, please visit york.ca/covid1

 

If a parent/guardian answers “yes” to any of the above symptoms regarding their child, they will be not be allowed to attend camp, and urged to:

 

1. Return home immediately

2. Seek assessment and testing as early as possible at a COVID-19 Assessment Centre

3. Self-isolate for 14 days (including any members of your household or people you had

close contact with from 48 hours before symptoms)

 

For more information on COVID-19 and COVID-19 Assessment Centres, visit york.ca/covid19 or contact York Region Public Health at 1-800-361-5653.

 

Supplies and Materials

Each participant will have their own designated activity area, spaced at least 2 m from the nearest neighbour. Additionally, each will receive their own supply kit as a measure to prevent the sharing of materials and potential spreading of germs between participants. Staff (after washing/ sanitizing hands) will provide all additional materials/supplies which will be set up prior to each session.

 

Additional Measures  

Work areas will be cleaned after each use using industrial strength (non-toxic) disinfectants. We have also installed hand-sanitizer dispensers in key areas of our location and will be encouraging regular handwashing between activity periods and after snacks/lunchtime (when applicable).
