COVID-19 Policy

The health and safety of our staff and participants is our number one priority at National Kids Camps. As we all play a role in preventing the transmission of Coronavirus, we are asking our entire National Kids Camps family to adhere to the recommended guidelines. We thank you in advance for your diligence in helping to maintain a healthy community!


Since COVID-19 is a very fluid and constantly changing situation and while many public health and safety measures are being lifted in Ontario, provincial guidance and directives do remain in place for some sectors and should continue to be followed.  The government allowed business to make their own choices. We always strive to keep our camps as safe as possible but understand that many of you have grown tired of these restrictions. 

As per the Mandatory vaccination:

The requirement to be fully vaccinated has been suspended. We continue to strongly encourage you to get fully vaccinated and to get booster doses as soon as you become eligible, in order to protect yourself and the people around you. Based on the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and in alignment with the National Advisory Committee on Immunization. 

Although masking is no longer mandatory in Ontario, we highly recommend campers continue wearing a mask indoors especially when physical distancing may not be possible or proves to be challenging in crowded areas. Campers who take the bus to our Camp Fortune Facility will continue to wear a mask.

Please do complete a health-screening questionnaire  daily.
