Over the past year, our accreditation body, the Ontario Camps Association (OCA), has been busy working with the government and public health departments to identify the best procedures, practices and policies required for camps to run a safe 2021 season. As with everything else during this pandemic, we expect there will be modifications, adjustments, updates to these plans as new knowledge and information surfaces regarding the direction the virus and the variants are taking.
Because of these inevitable and ongoing changes, to avoid any confusion with our parents, campers and staff, we feel it best to wait to share our plan until we have certainty with what will be put in place. This way, we hope to provide a single, unified update to everyone and answer everyone's questions.
We are fortunate that IMC occurs at the end of August after Camp Manitou has completed their season. They will have already learned from the experiences of the summer and will have protocols and routines in place to share with IMC.
We remain optimistic that IMC will run this summer and are busy planning an exciting season!
