Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the GRCA has made the decision to cancel its day camps for the summer of 2020.
The GRCA continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and follow the guidance of federal and provincial governments and public health authorities in Ontario. On June 2, 2020, the provincial government released its public health guidelines for the safe operation of day camps in Ontario. Upon review of the guidelines, the GRCA has determined that the restrictions would significantly impact its ability to deliver quality day camp programs in the current COVID-19 environment.
“This was a very difficult decision,” says Tracey Ryan, Manager of Environmental Education and Restoration. “We know how much our campers and families enjoy the nature activities, games, and outdoor experiences offered at our camps, but the health and safety of our campers and staff remain our highest priority.”
