The Town of Pelham is dedicated to providing a safe, exciting, and FUN camp experience for all our campers. 

Camps and COVID-19

Camps will not be running while in the level GREY Control, or while there is a stay-at-home order in effect. 

 

However, once Niagara is back in the level RED Control, Camps and Activities will be able to proceed. Please see below for all details.

 

There are several adjustments that have been made to our camp programming this year to better ensure the safety of all participants. The following outlines the current changes according to government guidelines. 

 

Drop off/Pick up

Campers will be picked up and dropped off by a parent/guardian in the front lobby of the Meridian Community Centre (MCC). All parents and children must have a face covering on to enter the building. We ask that you remain with your child until they are screened by our camp staff. Please be aware of the markers on the floor and maintain your physical distance while waiting to be screened. 

 

A screening tool provided by the Niagara Region Public Health Unit will be used to screen campers upon their arrival. Campers will then be directed to their camp room by their camp leader. We ask that parents do not enter the building past the screening desk, but if they must, they will need to go through the screening process.

 

Camp Groups

Our camp programs will operate in cohorts of 10 or fewer individuals at all times, with an 8:2 camper to staff ratio.

 

The camp groups will remain consistent throughout the duration of the camp, keeping siblings and those already in a social bubble together. Rooms will be fully disinfected by cleaning staff before any room changes are made.

 

Physical Distancing

A physical distance of at least 2 meters between campers as well as staff will be encouraged at all times possible. Campers will engage in games and activities that allow for this distance, as well as activities that limit sharing of common items and equipment. Each camper will have their own table space that will allow for maintaining a safe distance while eating and doing activities such as crafts. 

 

Cleaning

On site disinfectant staff will be fully cleaning all camp rooms every morning, evening, and whenever else necessary. Hand washing will be regularly incorporated into the daily camp routine between all activities and before meals and snacks.

 

Face Coverings

All staff and campers must wear a non-medical face coverings or face mask at all times unless when eating or participating in strenuous physical activity. 

 

Our goal is to provide a safe, yet still fun and exciting environment!
