2021 Covid-19 March Break and Summer Camp Information 
Appleby Camps is hopeful and committed to offering quality camp programs in 2021 that follow all Public Health and Government Covid-19 guidelines and safety protocols.  Thus, we have  adjusted our camp framework for 2021 to provide a variety of exciting combo-camp options while maintaining the highest safety standards to protect our camp community during these pandemic circumstances.

Our camp operations in 2021 will include:

  • Small groups with minimal interaction with other groups (separate designated indoor, outdoor, and eating locations)
  • Maximum capacities, physical distancing and safety signage
  • Mandatory mask policy for all campers and staff 
  • Increased hand washing built into camp schedule
  • Daily screening procedures
  • Individual equipment, supplies and lunches, where possible
  • Consistent and thorough sanitization and cleaning protocols

As we plan for 2021 in this evolving landscape, we appreciate your patience and confidence in our team and promise to communicate openly about our planning and any changes that need to be made.  Please click here for our current FAQs for families regarding the 2021 season. We will update this document as needed and we will always provide you with details and time to make an informed decision should plans need to change.  

We are here to answer any further questions you may have, please reach us at any time by email camps@appleby.on.ca.
