Changes in the Summer Camps Offered by the City of Ottawa


The City is cancelling its originally-planned summer camp programs, scheduled to run from June 29 to August 28, and is replacing them by a new summer camp program that is reformatted around COVID-19 public health measures. Details on registration, dates, location will be announced shortly and will be conditional on the Provincial government permitting such programming.

This new summer camp program will follow physical distancing guidelines and emergency orders under the direction of the Province of Ontario. As a result, enhanced and strict safety measures will be in place when the City camps begin, which will include:

  • Smaller camp groups
  • Additional staff to assist with maintaining physical distancing requirements and sanitization
  • Screening protocols for campers and staff

For parents who currently have a child registered for a camp, the program will be automatically cancelled and a credit will be placed on their account. Once the account is credited, they can use it to register for a future program, including the newly formatted camp; save the credit for future use; or they can login to and request a full refund.
