This cohort or group will be together all throughout the day and week. -Meals will be eaten with their cohorts and 2 meters away from other cohorts within the dining hall. Spacing will be calculated from the back of chairs rather than tables.

If providing your own transportation 8:45am is the drop off time at camp. -There will be two different drop off and pick up locations for the busses. -Downtown Prince George Location: Drop off time: 7:00-7:15 am Pick up time: 8:15-8:30pm Connaught Youth Centre 1491 - 17th Avenue, Prince George, BC V2L 3Z2 (Right beside Ron Brent Elementary School) -Hart Location: Drop off time 7:45-8:00am Pick up time: 7:30-7:45pm Hartland Baptist Church 6599 Driftwood Road, Prince George, BC V2K 4E4 We will meet and exceed the COVID-19 policies and procedures used by the school district.




Do we Accept Friend Requests?


YES- If you request your child to be with a friend we will (do our best to) put them in the same cohort for their week at camp together. Our Day Camp model will be using cohorts in place of our usual cabin groups. Our Day camp model will be using cohorts in place of our usual (male and female) cabin groups.




How do Friend Requests work for Bussing


Cohorts or cabin groups sit together on the bus, so we will load cohorts accordingly from back to front.




If my Child is not feeling well, will I get a refund if they are sent or stay home?


If your child only gets to attend 2 or less days of camp, because of them not feeling well, we will offer a 50% refund. If your child attends 3 or more days of camp and then gets sent home because they are not feeling well, there will be no refund. In consideration for the camp staff and other campers, if your child feels sick, please keep them home.




What if Camp is Cancelled Again?


-Our cancellation policy is as follows: Camp fee (less the $100 deposit) is refundable only if cancellation is received 14 days prior to the first day of camp. The deposit is non-refundable. No refund will be given if cancellation occurs less than 2 weeks prior to your camp week, except for medical reasons. No refund will be given for a dismissal due to home-sickness, disciplinary action, late arrival or early departure. -We will all be devastated if this happens again, but if it does you will be given a full refund.




What if we get a Case of Covid?


-We will follow the protocols and recommendations from our local health authority. This likely could mean that camp will be cancelled until it is safe to resume.




Will there be Free Time or Skills?


-Free Time and skills will look different this year. Campers will not have the usual Free Time block to run around on their own time to do whichever activity they please, but throughout the week they will be given the opportunity to do every activity available during Free Time.(Yes you will get a chance to do the Zipline) Same goes for skills, they will get an opportunity to do many of our skills rather than just choosing a few during registration. Our Day Camp schedule has a rotation of which skill you will do on which day, everyday there are two skill blocks, and at the end of the week each camper will have done 10 skill blocks.




Will Campers and Summer Team be required to Wear Masks?


-With continuous changes to the public health orders, we can not say with certainty if masks will be required in June. However, we will follow and enforce the latest health orders regarding wearing masks (Our hope is by June masks will not be required.)




What if my Child needs Medications Everyday?


-We will have a Health Attendant every week who will be in charge of medications and first aid. On the first day of camp please bring enough medication for your child's entire week of camp, the Health Attendant will organize and distribute your child’s medication to them while at camp throughout the week when needed. - Medical Administration Schedule




My Child has Dietary Restrictions, how does Camp Accomodate that?


-Our Kitchen Team is always happy to help accommodate any dietary needs your child has. Please just fill out the form online as you register your child for a week at camp.




What Food Service will the Camp be Providing?


-We will be providing lunch, supper and snacks throughout the day. Note: morning snack provided upon arrival. Please provide any special dietary needs in the medical form during the registration process.
