As you are likely aware, the most recent announcement from the provincial government has established a framework for the reopening of Ontario. Within that framework, overnight camps fall under the second stage. As a result, Hurontario has to change our session lengths in July. While we still await details from our Government Health Authorities on what will be required of us to open and operate, we are now nevertheless excitedly proceeding with all the necessary arrangements required for us to be ready to open.
In the course of now being able to better schedule our preparations, we have determined that we have to make a minor adjustment to our opening date in July. This date will be dependent on the provincial government’s first stage of reopening having reached its goals. Should there be a need to make further adjustments, we will be in touch with all of our families accordingly. Our June 30 opening date will now move to July 6. Further, we will adjust to two 9 day camp sessions in July and one 18 day camp session in July. Please see our dates and rates page for details. These adjustments in our scheduling ensure that all those registered for July will be able to experience their July camping adventures! We hope we will have your important continuing support on this. And, given the COVID protocols that will be in place for the safety and health of our campers and staff, it is necessary for us to adjust the dates of our IntroCamps accordingly. Both July and August Introcamps will be 5 days in length and will run from Tuesday, August 24 to Saturday, August 28.
Please also note that travel plans as found on our database remain unchanged. We are unfortunately unable to offer bus transportation to and from camp this summer, given the need to maintain our cabin cohorts. We will be sending travel details to all our families outlining specific arrival times for each family.
The safety and health of our campers will remain our top priority. Our health and safety protocols have been drafted and we await protocol requirements from government health authorities.
Your support and understanding in these COVID times is extremely important and is greatly appreciated. Hurontario’s 75 year tradition of providing campers with an excellent outdoor camping experience where each child can grow and learn will continue this summer and into future summers.
Please contact us with any questions.
Best to all; stay safe.
