The Ministry of Health does not have specific COVID-19 Guidance for camps at this time. Strawberry Point Christian Camp is working with our local Health Unit to comply with regulations that are applicable to camp. The following policies and procedures are based on current guidance and trends in the province, however they may need to be modified if new guidance is released.
1. All campers are welcome regardless of their vaccination status.
2. Parents are asked to monitor their child’s health for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days in advance of arrival at camp.
3. Anyone traveling from outside Canada must follow federal and provincial requirements and guidelines for quarantining, screening, and testing prior to camp. Refer to COVID-19 testing guidelines, the federal Quarantine Act, and federal travel guidelines: https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid
4. Camp staff should be made aware of documented seasonal allergies or pre-existing conditions that are not COVID-19 related (eg: chronic congestion) prior to the camper’s arrival at camp.
1. Parents/guardians will be asked to complete an online COVID-19 screening (based on the school and childcare screening tool: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/ each time a camper is dropped off at camp (once on drop off day for overnight camp, and every day for day camp). If the camper fails the screening, the camper should not attend camp, and should follow the advice of the screening tool.
2. Strawberry Point Christian Camp has staggered drop off times for overnight camp. These include:
3. Overnight camper parents will be permitted to exit their vehicles during sign-in and sign-out in a designated area. Camp counsellors and staff will be available to meet campers and parents. Only campers will be permitted to travel across to camp by boat.
4. Day camp drop off and pick up will occur at two locations (Gore Bay and Dad’s Sales at Hwy 540 and Robertson Rd). There is a designated area to park if parents need to exit their vehicles.
1. Campers and staff will not be required to wear masks. We are mask-friendly and campers who want to wear a mask are welcome to do so. Staff will wear masks while serving meals.
2. Campers will be asked to perform frequent hand hygiene.
3. Frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned at least once daily.
4. Reusable equipment will be properly cleaned and disinfected as needed.
1. Strawberry Point Christian Camp has staggered pick-up times for overnight camp. These include:
1. Persons who have symptoms will be isolated and parents/guardians will be made aware of symptoms. The COVID-19 School and Child Care Screening tool will be used to determine if the camper can remain at camp.
2. Please provide a complete medical history for your camper. Pre-existing conditions must be noted before camp begins if they are to be considered as a potential cause for symptoms.
3. If a camper needs to go home, parents/guardians will be required to pick the camper up as soon as possible on the same day.
