Is Camp Seggie running this summer?
Yes! We will be open this summer for Day Camps! Overnight Summer Camps have not yet been given the go ahead to run. With this in mind, Camp Seggie has decided to run day camp programming only.
What does this mean?
We know that by switching to Day Camp only this will mean that Camp Seggie will not be an option for some families this summer, whether it be due to time constraints or distance. While we are disappointed to not run Camp as normal we are excited to be able to offer something for our campers who have had so many things cancelled and rescheduled during this difficult year.
What will Camp look like?
In accordance with the Public Health Measures, Camp Seggie will be following mass gathering guidelines of 50 person groups. Campers will remain in this group moving from activity to activity throughout each day at camp. Due to the ever changing nature of the COVID-19 situation and guidelines these procedures are subject to change in order to align with current Public Health guidelines.
Will there be physical distancing?
Yes, physical distancing in each cohort of 50 will need to be maintained as best as possible unless Public Health Measures change in this regard. We are following similar practices to those which have been put in place at daycares across the province.
What health measures are being taken throughout the day?
In addition to the measures already mentioned, some noteworthy practices include:
masks will be worn.
campers will be instructed at the beginning of the day and reminded regularly of good hygiene practices (ie. hand washing, coughing/sneezing into a tissue or elbow, physical distancing).
we have instituted strict cleaning and disinfecting procedures.
all program equipment will be sanitized after use.
Is it safe?
We believe we have taken every precaution to ensure the safety of our Campers and staff this summer. We will have dedicated staff to ensure the cleaning and sanitizing of each area of Camp and we have developed a comprehensive operational plan.
What will Day Camp look like?
Campers will participate in all of our regular summer activities each day; pool time, rock wall, chapel, crafts, sports, archery and many more just in their smaller groups. While camp will look different we believe we can still have a lot of fun and provide the same quality experience your camper is used to.
Families who register for Day Camp will receive an email containing more information about Day Camp procedures.
