The Town of Pelham is dedicated to providing a safe, exciting, and FUN camp experience for all campers. 
Camps and COVID-19

Please see the steps the Town of Pelham took to protect their campers during the 2021 Summer Camp season below.

 

There are several adjustments that have been made to our camp programming to 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 out front of the Meridian Community Centre (MCC). All parents and children must remain in their car until they are approached by a staff member, who will screen the camper before they enter the building.  

 

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, 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 10:2 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!

If a camp program states registration is full, please register to the waitlist as additional spaces will likely become available, pending restrictions, and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
