As we work towards Summer 2021, our planning for COVID-19 will be an ongoing process. While we hope for the best, we are planning for COVID-19 to be a part of our lives for the foreseeable future. We appreciate your patience as we work towards summer and the trust that you hold in us. More than anything, we hope to be together, safely, on Beausoleil Island in 2021. We will be sure to keep you updated in the coming months as our planning continues.
Over the winter months, we will:
- Work with Public Health, other YMCA Camps, and the Ontario Camps Association to determine what measures are needed to safely operate.
- Plan for enhanced cleaning and sanitizing, screening measures, frequent health checks, and other measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- Determine the necessary additional staff training and policies and practices for our staff team.
- Examine what other changes might be necessary (dining hall setup, busing, overnight canoe trips, and other aspects of camp).
While there are many changes to plan for, we are confident that we can provide a safe, healthy, and fun camp experience in 2021. We will update you as the planning continues, but if there are any specific questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us.
