The City of London is offering modified summer day camp program this year.
The modified summer camp program follows guidelines and health precautions set out by the Province of Ontario and the Middlesex-London Health Unit, including physical distancing and group size restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Children will take part in active and quiet games, arts and crafts, nature-based and outdoor activities, when space and weather permit, among smaller camper groups of eight. Each group will be assigned its own space for defined activity periods, with enhanced cleaning and disinfecting in between groups, with camp counsellors staying with the same group of children all week.
Core programming will run 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and families will be assigned drop-off times between 8:15- 8:50 a.m. and pick-up times between 4:15-4:45 p.m.
Registration will be available starting Monday, June 22 at 8:30 a.m. online or by calling 519-661-5575. In-person registration will be available at City of London offices, second floor of 355 Wellington Street (Citi Plaza), Suite 248 on Monday, June 22 between 8:30 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
