Summer Camp Transformed for the Modern Family


Sumer Camp 2020 may look a little different, but we are so grateful for the opportunity to run an adjusted day camp program for Medicine Hat families this summer! 

First thing first, the following list of COVID-19 Health & Safety specfic information will explain how different our operations will be and how serious we take your childs health and safety:
  • Camps will run in cohorts of 8 children and 1 to 2 staff
  • Each cohort will have separate entrances and rooms
  • Each YMCA facility will have one cohort of ages 5-9 and one cohort of ages 7-12
  • There is a strict no-attendance policy for anyone experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, headache, or a general feeling of being unwell.
  • Parents and guardians are to check the temperatures of their children daily before coming to the program
  • Staff will conduct active symptom screening of each child every day with the parent or guardian as they drop off their children
  • New drop off and pick up procedures will be in place
  • Where possible, physical distancing practices and activities will occur
  • Unfortunately, due to the health and safety restrictions our gymnasium, pool, and climbing wall will be closed 
  • For more details about all the Covid Public Health Requirements we are implementing, please visit: https://www.alberta.ca/assets/documents/covid-19-relaunch-guidance-day-camps.pdf
