Camp Covid-19 Policies
MUST COMPLETE EVERY DAY!
DAILY COVID-19 HEALTH SCREENING
LAST UPDATED: JUNE 23RD, 2021
While we wait for further guidance of the Province of Ontario, we will host 2021 CAMP with program modifications that were put in place by the Ministry of Health in 2020 to keep campers, and staff safe.
See below for current details.
Updates will be highlighted as they are made based on Provincial guidance
Drop-Offs & Pickups
All Drop-Offs will take place outside of the building to support the required physical distancing. While we will do our best to ensure this is a quick process, please allow yourself time at each drop off for this to take place safely.
All families will be required to maintain proper distancing while waiting to sign in for each program.
Pickup will also take place outside. Parents will not be allowed to enter our indoor camp rooms/facility as per Ministry of Health guidelines.
Parents will be provided with contact information for any admin-related questions that come up during our summer programs. To support physical distancing requirements; and maintain a good flow to the process, Drop-Off and Pickup will not be the best time to have these conversations.
Direct email and cell phone information for our Camp Supervisor will be made available to our parents to discuss any questions or concerns that arise during our programs.
Our standard cancellation policy remains in effect:
Cancellations requested in writing 1 month prior to camp start date will be refunded in full. Cancellations requested in writing after the 1 month deadline, but 7 days prior to camp start date, will be refunded less a $45 administration fee per child, per week cancelled. No refunds are given within 7 days of start of camp. If your child cannot attend for medical reasons, please contact us immediately for consideration.
NEW to our cancellation policy:
Should your child be required to LEAVE our programs due to COVID symptoms and in consultation with Halton Health, Film.Ca is committed to working with you to provide credits or pro-rated refunds as needed.
Daily Screenings: All campers, staff, and any visitors will be required to complete a daily online screening form (the link to this can be found at the top of this page).
What you need to know: (updated June 2021, details subject to change based on Ontario guidelines)
- Programs will be divided into groups/cohorts
- Each group will have a maximum of 15 people
- These groups will be kept separate and will operate with no overlap of campers
- Each group will have its own indoor space available
- While outside, groups will maintain a minimum of 10 meters distance
- Each group will have their own filming equipment that will not be shared between groups
How do I know which group my child is in? How are groups determined?
- Groups will be assigned in advance by our admin team
- Children from the same household will be placed into the same group
- Campers who are needing aftercare will be placed into the same group
- *To avoid disappointment, please let us know right away if your child has signed up with a friend. If your child is in a “bubble” with another camper and does not need to be encouraged to maintain physical distancing, please let us know this as well.
Health and Safety
- Hand washing breaks will be followed throughout each day (see below for more details)
- Hand sanitizer will be available to each group throughout each day.
- Camp groups will have designated washrooms for the week. These washrooms will be sanitized throughout the day.
- Cleaning logs will be posted and monitored
Campers/students will be required to wear masks when indoors and when not able to physically distance outside. Our staff will also be required to wear masks while indoors.
While outdoors it will not be mandatory for children or staff to wear a mask. We will continue to encourage children to maintain the proper distance. If distance cannot be maintained, masks will be put on as needed.
Masks will be temporarily removed when:
(1) acting on camera in film (*only when needed)
(2) eating lunch/snacks (campers will be spaced out, outdoor picnics will be encouraged when possible)
During these instances, we will continue to encourage proper distancing is maintained.
In addition to campers and staff washing their hands at drop off, before snack time and after using the washroom, they will also wash their hands after snack and after sneezing or coughing into their hands or a kleenex. Hands are to be washed for 20 seconds to reduce the spread of germs.
Signs have been added to all washrooms with these instructions. Hand washing using antibacterial soap and water is recommended over alcohol-based hand rub.
When Your Child is Sick
Staff will complete a basic health check and screening to ensure your child is asymptomatic when they arrive. Your child will also be monitored throughout the day.
If your child is showing ill symptoms at home they are not to come to our program (fever 37.8 or higher, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, difficulty swallowing, taste or smell disorders, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain runny nose or nasal congestion). In addition, children may also have symptoms of fatigue, increased falls, delirium, chills, headaches, croup, pink eye, and rash.
If experiencing any symptoms, please follow the direction on the Ontario Self Assessment.
If your child becomes sick at our program, they will be separated in an isolation room and supervised by one of our staff members who will keep a 6-meter distance. We will notify you to pick up your child immediately. Our facility will be thoroughly disinfected once the child has been removed from each location.
If you have any questions, please reach out.
