Frequently Asked Questions

What COVID-19 measures are you taking?

Keeping your campers safe each summer is always our top priority.  We know that the foundation of delivering amazing camp experiences is ensuring camper safety and we plan carefully for this.  The global pandemic has led us to carefully examine all of our policies to respond appropriately.  Over the pandemic the health risk has changed, and we will be keeping the policies that were improvements regardless of health threat and tightening or loosening policies based on health risk at the time of camp.

Our leadership team of physical education teachers are currently delivering physical activity based programs in Ontario schools and have developed best practices for meeting and exceeding public health guidelines, provincial mandates and Ontario Camps Association guidelines.  For this reason we believe that we are best situated to deliver a safe, but still robust sports program during these difficult times.

Visit our Covid-19 Policy page for specific measures that we are taking in 2023.

Due to the nature of our short programs, there are no refunds for missed days. See our cancellation policy for more details.
