How will camp in 2021 look like?

Same as in 2020, we will be following Toronto Public Health guidelines for summer camps, once they are finalized. We expect cohorts to be at least 15 campers, compared to only 8 in 2020. We will again offer a modified program as much as necessary in order to adhere to all the guidelines. While we hope to be allowed to run our field trips again this year, the final decision will lay with Public Health.

Furthermore, we will draw from our experience in summer 2020 and build on the systems we implemented last year. Besides enhanced health & safety guidelines, we will adapt our program, staff training and logistics accordingly.

 

Even though summer 2021 might still not be a 'normal' summer, we are confident that we will once more be able to offer our campers a fun and enriching experience with the safety that is required to keep everyone healthy.

Here you can find the answers to some of your most important questions. And if you have any other doubts, questions or input, please never hesitate to reach out to us directly!

Frequently asked questions for 2021

Q: Will camp happen in-person for sure?


A: Day camps are allowed in all 5 coloured stages of public health measures. So we are very confident that we can offer a great in-person camp again, same as we did in 2020. Of course final guidelines are not published yet and are expected to come out in May/June.

Q: Will field trips happen?


A: Field trips to High Park will always happen from our High Park North and our Roncesvalles location as we can walk there. All other field trips will depend on the decision of Public Health if they allow day camps to use group transportation. 

In case we aren't allowed to do group transportation, we will create a fun special day with a visitor coming in for a show or a presentation, extra activities and games, all related to the weekly theme.

Q: Will I get my money back if summer camps won't be allowed to run?

 

A: Yes, absolutely! We would never ever hold back your money if we can't deliver what you've signed up for.

Q: What if I change my mind and don't want to send my kid(s) to camp?


A: We offer a 'no questions asked' full refund policy until March 31st, 2021. After that, we charge a $35 admin fee per cancellation until 30 days prior to the start of the week you signed up for. After 30 days, only 50% of the fees will be refundable.

Q: How big will the groups be?

A: In 2020 the campers were in cohorts of 8. We expect the cohorts to be bigger this year and are planning for 12-15 campers per cohort. 

Q: Is before and after care available?


A: Yes, before and after care is available at an extra fee from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
