Day/Overnight Camps

With children’s summer camp season approaching, operators of day and overnight camps are required to prepare an operational plan respecting Public Health guidance. Day and overnight camps do not need to be inspected before opening, but they must have an operational plan that can be provided to officials.

A COVID-19 Recovery Phase: Guidance to Early Learning and Childcare Facilities and Summer Camps document has been developed to provide clear direction to these operators. The goal is to create a safe and healthy environment for staff and children by making the necessary adjustments to help limit the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

Information on public health recovery phases, measures and guidelines is available online.
