Camp Structure

Modified Summer Day Camps will run for six (6) weeks starting July 13 and ending August 21, 2020.

Camps will run Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm based out of the Trenton Minor Sports Community Centre (Trenton Rink, 75 Park Road, Trenton).

Staff to child ratio is 9:1.

Children will stay in the same small groups with the camp leader for the duration of each session as they move through various activity stations.

Siblings will be assigned to the same small group when reasonable. Siblings are not required to physically distance from each other, even within the same small group.

Planned Activities

Camp activities may include activities such as arts and crafts, sports, fitness, music, dance, outdoor activities, and nature.

Many camp activities will be provided in an outdoor setting. Please come to camp prepared for outdoor activities with appropriate dress, footwear, hat, water bottle, and previously applied sunscreen.

Outdoor sun safety policies will be followed. Water stations for filling personal water bottles and additional sunscreen will be provided during the camp.

Camp activities will vary each week.

Physical Distancing

All camps will operate with physical distancing rules in place, with group activities spaced throughout available outdoor greenspace. Within each small group, camp attendees will maintain a two-meter physical distance from each other.

The use of non-medical masks (cloth or home-made masks) within the day camp setting is not required where physical distancing is maintained. However, some children may choose to bring and wear a nonmedical mask while at camp.

Group sizes will not exceed the maximum gathering limit of 10, including both campers and staff.

Drop off & Pick up

Trenton Rink Parking Lot will be sectioned off and labeled to adhere to social distancing guidelines.

All parents will enter from the same entrance and proceed towards the morning check in area.

Once parents are at the front of the line, they will park their vehicle and the Supervisor will approach with a questionnaire that the parent and child will answer each morning.

Once all the questions are answered and the Supervisor feels the child is safe to participate in the day’s activity the parent will then drive to 1 of 2 drop off locations (depending what group their child is in).

Illness

If a child develops symptoms while attending camp, the child will be isolated from other children andthe parent/guardian will be notified to collect the child immediately.

If a child requires close contact and care, staff will continue to care for the child until the parent/guardian is able to pick them up.

Personal Hygiene & Protective Precautions

All camp spaces will have designated entrance and exit plans, and washroom use will be monitored to limit capacity within these spaces.

Frequent hand washing or hand sanitizing by campers and staff will be taught, reinforced and monitored.

Campers will be reminded to cover coughs and sneeze with a tissue. If a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into elbows, not hands.

Campers will be encouraged to avoid touching their mouth, nose and eyes during the summer day camp.

Equipment and/or supplies will be managed and cleaned with appropriate disinfecting cleaner before and after use, and between use by different cohorts.
