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: Caregivers will receive a mandatory phone call before camp starts. Staff will:
- review procedures
- do a pre-camp health check

- Completing the call with staff is required for your child to be admitted to camp..
Arrivals and Health Screenings: CYM day camp will have an outdoor camp drop-off routine, weather permitting. With caregivers (age 18 and older with knowledge of the child’s health) present, staff will conduct a camper daily health screening that involves caregivers answering screening questions. 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.
