In light of recent COVID-19 developments, the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville launches a modified in-person summer camp program.
These camps will provide care, education and recreational activities for children ages 6-12 years of age.
The summer camps begin July 20 and run for seven weeks. The town is also implementing a take home “Camp-in-the-box” for parents and children wishing to conduct camp activities from their home. The “Camp-in-a-box” activities have several options to choose from.
Details about camp registration and locations are available online at townofws.ca/wsplayonline. Registration will continue until camps are full.
In addition to running summer camps, the town will also be opening the indoor pool at the Whitchurch-Stouffville Leisure Centre for residents. Residents will be required to pre-register for pool activities and programs at townofws.ca/wsplayonline.
The pool and the reception desk will be the only portions of the Leisure Center open to the public.
The in-person camp program will follow all guidelines and health protocols set out by the Province of Ontario and York Region Public Health, including physical distancing and smaller camp sizes. The town has developed an Operational Guide to support day camp operations to ensure that all necessary procedures are in place to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 among participants, staff, and other contacts. Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols will also be implemented.
