Frequently Asked Questions

All COVID-19 policies are subject to change, and will be updated as new information emerges from the Ontario Camps Association & Public Health.

Will lodgers need to be vaccinated for COVID-19 before coming to Camp?

  • It is advised that all lodgers undergo vaccination when they are able to. This will help us increase capacity, and may allow us to modify some restrictions safely.

  • Please let us know as soon as you are called to be vaccinated, so we can update our records. If lodgers need to leave Camp to be vaccinated, please let us know and we will work with you to make sure that can happen

What will we need to do before Camp starts?

  • We are waiting on guidance from the Ontario Camps Association for pre-Camp preparations for lodgers.

  • It is likely that you will need to get a COVID test at your local testing site, and self-quarantine prior to Camp session.

  • Your lodger, and everyone in the car to drop them off will need to pass on-site screening tests.

  • We will be in touch with more details and information sessions closer to the start of camp about the requirements.

What if there is a COVID-19 case at Camp?

  • We will be regularly monitoring all lodgers and staff for COVID-19 daily throughout the session, including temperature checks and daily symptom screening.

  • In the case that there is a suspected case or positive test for COVID-19, our COVID-Coordinator (Head Nurse) will isolate the lodger(s) affected, and their activity Group and Cabin Group will be isolated as well. The Covid-Coordinator will then execute the COVID Response Plan to keep all other lodgers safe.

  • In the event that your lodger is a positive or suspected positive case, you will be required to pick your lodger up from Camp so they can recover in the comfort of home. We are unable to provide care for a COVID positive/suspected case for long periods of time, while keeping the rest of Camp safe. The lodger may be able to return to Camp after a negative COVID test.

  • If your lodger is in the same Cabin Group as a positive/suspected positive case, you will be called and updated on the situation regularly.
