Camp looks different this year, but fun is still the goal! Experienced staff have been hard at work adapting games and activities to maintain physical distance between campers.

  • Each camper will have their own supplies for all activities to eliminate the sharing of supplies and equipment
  • Each group of campers will stay together for the entire week, and won’t interact with other campers
  • Camps won’t be going on bus trips or using transit but will be exploring local neighbourhoods and walking to parks

Adapted and Inclusive Services

If your child needs additional support at camp please contact Adapted and Inclusive Services at 416-395-6128 or aiscw@toronto.ca.

Camper’s safety is the first priority.

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, CampTO programs will meet health guidelines designed in consultation with Toronto Public Health and in alignment with provincial health guidelines for day camps.

Camper Code of Conduct

Each camper will be asked to agree to a code of conduct while at camp. It includes

  • physical distancing
  • respiratory etiquette
  • frequent handwashing

Those who can’t or won’t follow the camp code of conduct may be asked to leave camp to protect the safety of everyone. Positive behaviour management will always be used before asking any child to leave camp.

Masks/Face Coverings

In compliance with the City of Toronto Mandatory Mask or Face Covering By-Law 541-2020, campers and staff will be required to wear face coverings/masks while indoors.

Caregivers must:

  • send two or three clean face coverings per camper each day
  • provide two resealable bags to store masks in

The face-covering can be

  • a mask
  • scarf
  • bandana
  • other cloth covering
  • non-surgical paper mask

as long as it covers your camper’s nose and mouth.

Face shields are not a substitute for face coverings/masks.

Cleaning

Cleaning of facilities will occur more frequently with special attention to high touch surfaces like door handles and counters.  Shared spaces and common areas like gyms and washrooms will be cleaned between uses.

Drop-off

The caregiver who is dropping off the camper must be someone aged 18 years or older and has knowledge of the camper’s health

Staff will conduct a camper daily screening that involves caregivers answering several questions.

Campers that have symptoms of COVID-19 will not be admitted to the camp program and caregivers will be asked to take the camper home and have them tested at the local assessment centre.

Illness at Camp

If a camper falls ill while at camp, they will be placed in a quiet room with a staff person and isolated from the rest of their camp group. Caregivers will be contacted to pick up their camper immediately. The caregiver will be asked to take the child to a COVID-19 assessment centre to be tested. If a negative result is confirmed the child will be allowed to return to camp.
