Parents will receive a Summer Day Camps in Manor Park Handbook electronically prior to their child attending camp. Parents will be expected to read and understand the Handbook. 

Eligible children, must have received 2 Covid-19 vaccine doses and be fully vaccinated by the first day of attendance. Proof will be required.

Children will be grouped based on age. At the point of registration you will register your child into their age group. Should you wish to have your child grouped with their sibling, please make your request through the camp supervisor. We will try our best to accommodate sibling group requests.

Camps groupings will be between 10 - 20 children and 2 camp counsellors. Camp groups will be designated 'cohorts' and will not change whatsoever during the week.

Camp Counsellors will have had 2 Covid-19 vaccines and 1 Covid-19 booster prior to their start date. Camp Counsellors will complete and pass a Daily Active Healty Screening prior to reporting for work each day. All counsellors are emergency first aid and CPR certified.

We will be following guidelines from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Ottawa Public Health to ensure that we are providing a safe environment for all participants, staff and family members.

Parents, care-givers, or other family members not attending the camp are not permitted inside the building and will not have access to washrooms.

Parents will need to complete a Daily Active Health screening for their child prior to arrival and check in with an MPCC representative upon arrival to confirm the screening has been completed and passed.

If anyone begins to show symptoms of illness while attending camp, they will need to be picked up by a parent immediately. The participant will wait in an isolation area to be picked up.

We hope to accomodate between 40 - 80 children each week, however, this may change based on guidance from Public Health. Chidlren eligible to attend are ages 4 – 10.

Children can expect to enjoy the sports field, multiple climbing structures and swings. Active sports and games will be included along with art, crafts, creative exploration, dramatic play, quiet time and story time. The splash pad and water toys will be available for those who attend already wearing their bathing suit. Changing in and out of wet clothes will not be permitted again this season.

All activities will take place outside, unless inclement weather. If we anticipate that heat or extreme weather will be an issue, we reserve the right to cancel the camp on that day without notice. A refund will not be provided in this case.

Should the province of Ontario Ministry of Health say that summer camps are not able to run, we will put a credit on your Amilia account and any refund requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Litter-Less Lunches at Summer Day Camps in Manor Park:
Help keep our green space green! Litter-less (waste-free) lunches are highly encouraged at Summer Day Camps in Manor Park. Not only is a litter-less lunch great for the environment but also encourages healthy eating and keeps trash and food wrappers from ending up on the ground and in the grass. Whenever possible, it is encouraged to send campers with reusable lunch bags, waterbottles and food containers.

Campers should bring:
Campers should label ALL of their items and keep personal belongings to a bare minimum. Campers should arrive with 2 healthy, waste-free & nut-free snacks and reusable water bottle, as well as a healthy lunch. A hat and sunscreen are strongly recommended. Campers should arrive in clothing that is okay to get dirty. Those wishing to play in the splash pad must come wearing a bathing suit as changing clothes will be prohibited on site due to covid-19. It is recommended to apply sunscreen before arrival whenever possible or provided for the camper to apply themselves. Flip flops, a towel, 2 face masks. Hand sanitizer is optional.
