Winnipeg, MB – Select City of Winnipeg summer day camps for preschool, children and youth are expected to start the week of July 6. Registration for limited day camps will begin on Friday, June 26 at 8 a.m.
A limited number of summer day camps will be available for youth aged 3–15 years during July and August. The majority of these day camps will be a week long and offered with options for a morning or afternoon class. Participants must register in advance.
The summer day camps will focus on outdoor activities, so participants should come prepared and dressed accordingly with proper footwear, a nut‑free snack that requires no preparation, a hat, sunscreen, bug repellent, and drinking water. Indoor facilities will be used sparingly as the washroom and meeting sites for day camps; social distancing and hand sanitization protocols will be adhered to when using these facilities.
Participants in the day camps will be required to practice physical distancing, and all participants must maintain a distance of at least two metres from every other individual. Participants will be required to complete a self-assessment for COVID-19 prior to attending each class, and to stay at home if ill with symptoms of COVID-19.
