Summer Camps 2021
Camps at Sheridan College have not been confirmed and most likely will not happen. We will have an update posted here beginning of May. Our closest location would be the Streetsville or Mississauga location. You may book at one of these locations and transfer over to Square One if that location opens.
We will be taking the following precautions this summer:
- Follow all guidelines by public health
- Follow all government recommendations
- Reducing camp numbers in half or more by location to ensure physical distancing of 6 feet between campers and staff is adhered to
- Taking daily temperature of staff and children
- Having all kids wash or sanitize their hands upon arrival and throughout the day
- Sanitizing all commonly touched areas several times per day
- Parents will not be permitted inside the camp. There will be a check in table at the door.
We will be running camps from July 5th to Sept 3, 2021.
