Registration opens to the public on Monday, March 1, 2021.

Camps will run Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Extended Hours at 8:00 – 9:00 AM and/or 4:00 – 5:00 PM are available for an additional fee
Camps will run from Monday, June 28, 2021 to Friday, August, 20, 2021 - for a total of 8 weeks.

Cost for extended hours is $45 for a 5 day week and $35 for the weeks of June 28 - July 2, 2021 and August 3 - 6, 2021

Age groups for camp are 4 – 10. We will run two separate groups. Siblings and family members will be grouped together first to mitigate covid-19 transmission.

Camps will run with 8 children and 2 camp counsellors, and the groups will not change whatsoever during the week.

We will be following guidelines from the City of Ottawa 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.

A pre-program declaration of health will need to be completed electronically before your child can begin attending camp. The form will be updated before camp begins to reflect the most recent changes.

Children and family members will need to complete a daily health screening prior to arrival. The screening will be updated before camp begins to reflect the most recent changes.

If anyone begins to show symptoms 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 will be accommodating 16 children each week, ages 4 – 10.

Should the province 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.

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

Experienced camp counsellors will be trained on proper doning and doffing of PPE and how to assist anyone who may become symptomatic while in their care. All counsellors will have experience working with children and will work to provide a safe, fun, positive and lasting impression.

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.

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. 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 a healthy, waste-free & nut-free snack and reusable water bottle. A hat and sunscreen are strongly recommended. 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 and a towel. Because camp will take place almost entirely outdoors - please send your child with appropriate rain gear on rainy days. We will remain outside unless there is inclement weather.

Does your child have an anaphylactic allergy or carries life saving medication, such as an epi-pen or asthma puffer?

Children with life saving medications must arrive at camp with their medication clearly labeled. Children will not be permitted on the premises without their epi-pen, asthma puffer, etc. Before a child may attend camp, parents are required to fill out the  paperwork below and submit it electronically to the camp Supervisor if their child has a life threatening or anapylactic allergy and/or carries a life saving medication. Please complete both forms, including a photo of your child.

Notice of Risk:

When children from multiple families attend a day camp, there is an increased risk of the COVID-19 virus coming into the camp. Children who are infected with the COVID-19 virus are more likely than adults to have very mild infections or to have no symptoms at all, but these children can still transmit the infection to other children and to adults at the camp. This means that children can bring home an infection acquired in a camp and put other persons at risk. Even if a day camp has a screening process to help detect infections when there are symptoms; this screening process will not detect infected children or adults who do not have symptoms at the time of screening. The risk of serious COVID-19 infection increases with age, which older day camp staff should consider in terms of the risk to themselves personally, particularly if working in day camps with children from multiple families.
