2020 - Coronavirus

Updates in response to Coronavirus

While the summer still seems far away, rest assured that we are planning ahead to ensure a safe and still fun camp experience for our campers and their families. This page serves to keep you informed about the different steps we are taking to:

a. Support our camp families during these uncertain times

b. Ensure we can deliver a safe summer camp experience  

c. Prepare a camp program to provide what will be a much-needed fun environment where our children can spend time with friends and discover new things.

New peace-of-mind booking conditions

March 15th, 11:00 am

In light of the current developments of the global coronavirus pandemic, we changed our deposit requirements for new bookings. While we usually ask for full payment at time of registration, you are now able to book with only a 10% refundable deposit. The remaining amount will be due by April 30th. With this action, we hope to support families with the financial burden of summer camp during these uncertain times while still securing their summer camp spots.

If you decide not to complete the payment by April 30th, you will be issued a full refund of the deposit paid.

In case the full payment is completed by April 30th, our regular cancellation policy comes into effect which still allows for a full refund (minus a $35 administrative fee) up to 30 days prior to the first day of your weeks booked. 

Will camp happen?

April 25th, 1:00 pm

The short answer is YES. However, most likely not in the traditional way. I have great exchanges with many other Camp Directors and we all have one thing in common: We really want camp to happen! But... it's not entirely up to us.

We depend not only on Public Health guidelines but also on the fact that we want camp to be safe for campers, parents and our staff. We also want to offer our high-quality programming and for camp to simply be fun!

While this is a new situation for all of us and each camp is planning differently, here is what we have in mind at Toronto Kidz Summer Camp:

We want to run "in-person camp" for as many weeks as possible!

If we don't deem it safe or we can't offer quality programming in-person, we will offer a virtual camp.

Already registered campers would get the choice of joining us for virtual camp at a lower price point or to simply receive a refund of the fees paid.
