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’s safety is the first priority. Each camp group will stay together for the entire week, and not interact with campers in other groups.

Campers:

  • must wear a mask/face covering indoors and outdoors
  • will practise physical distancing
  • have their own craft supplies and crafts will be sent home at the end of camp

CampTO will not be going on bus trips, using transit or going swimming.

Additionally:

  • Only registered participants are allowed to attend
  • Rooms have been reorganized to maintain physical distancing
  • Where applicable, only pre-packaged snacks will be available

Masks and Face Coverings

Everyone must wear masks while indoors.

Masks are not necessary outdoors if participants can, at all times, maintain:

  • a two-metre distance from others during quiet games and activities
  • a three-meter distance from others during physical activity and active games

If these distances can’t be maintained at all times, a mask is required.

Camper Code of Conduct

Each camper will be asked to agree to a code of conduct while at camp, including:

  • physical distancing
  • wearing a mask/face covering
  • respiratory etiquette
  • frequent handwashing

Campers who are unable or unwilling to follow the camp code of conduct may be asked to leave camp to protect the safety of all participants. As always, positive behaviour management will be implemented prior to asking any child to leave camp.

Cleaning

Cleaning of facilities will occur more often with special attention to high-touch surfaces like door handles and counters. Shared spaces and common areas like gyms will be cleaned between camp groups.

Pre-Camp Phone Call

Caregivers will receive a mandatory phone call before camp starts. Staff will:

  • review procedures
  • do a pre-camp health check
  • review health guidelines

Completing the call with staff is required for your child to be admitted to camp. Caregivers will also be sent a CampTO Caregiver Handbook.

Arrivals and Health Screenings

CampTO has an outdoor camp drop-off routine, weather permitting.

  1. Each camper will be given an arrival time to reduce crowding and to better manage the new arrival process
  2. Campers must be accompanied each day by an individual, age 18 or older, who has knowledge of the participant’s health to complete health screening and contact tracing sign-in
  3. Campers that have symptoms of COVID-19, their siblings and household family members will not be admitted to the camp
    • Caregivers will be asked to take the camper home and have them tested at the local assessment centre

If anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19, has been notified as a close contact of someone with COVID-19 or been told to stay home and self-isolate the camper must stay home.

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, once symptoms have resolved for 24 hours.
