Modified day camps now permitted to operate in Brampton
At a June 24 conference, Mayor Patrick Brown announced that as of today, the City will be moving into Stage 2 and as a result, modified day camps will be allowed to operate this summer.
Today's conference featured Mayor Patrick Brown, Councillor Martin Medeiros and Dr. Lawrence Loh, Interim Medical Officer of Health, Region of Peel.
During the announcement, the mayor emphasized that because of everyone’s cooperation, the City will now be able to join the other regions across the province that have already entered Stage 2.
“I know a lot of people have been waiting for this day and certainly, it’s good news for our community,” said Brown.
“I’m pleased to announce that the city of Brampton will be offering modified summer camps starting July 13 for ages 4 to 10.”
According to Brown, camp programming has been modified to include more individual and outdoor activities.
Additionally, Brown explained that the City has taken some initiatives to ensure that personal protective equipment will be worn by all those working in the camp setting including all the camp leaders and instructors.
Camps will be allowed to operate in groups of a maximum of eight participants and frequent cleaning and disinfecting will take place in all facilities.
They will also feature portable hand sanitizing stations that will be available in all high-traffic areas of the facilities.
“Camps are a special time for children. It’s an exciting part of the summer,” said Brown.
“During this time of isolation, it is even more important for children to stay active, learn new skills and have a safe place to play.”
Registration for camps in Brampton will begin on June 29, 2020.
