Hello, Campers and Caregivers!

I am sure you are all anxiously awaiting a new update on Camps. We have received news from the Province that has directed us how we are to proceed with camps this year.


Will there be a Grundy Camp this year?

The Province of Ontario has cancelled overnight camps for 2020. Unfortunately, this means that we will not be able to offer Grundy Camp Programs this year.

Will there be Day Camps this year?

The Province of Ontario has mentioned that day camp programs will be discussed as part of “Phase 2” for 2020. Unfortunately, this means that we still don’t know if we will be able to offer face-to-face day camps this year.

We will continue to plan for some potential face-to-face opportunities. We are currently working together to make sure that if we do get the go-ahead, we do so in a safe and responsible way. As previously stated, we have not received any dates or guidelines from the Province. Once we do, we will be able to provide a definitive answer to you.

What are we doing instead?

We will be offering a virtual camp for campers age 6-16. Campers will receive a camp kit with materials needed for activities and will have programming each day via Zoom.

When can I send in an application?

Online applications for virtual day camp will be available May 25 on our website – www.nativechild.org  Applications are due by June 5. 

Please note, not all applications will be accepted, status of application will be communicated via email June 12.

Is there a cost for virtual camp?

No, there is no cost for virtual camp.

In the meantime, please stay safe and continue to wash your hands frequently and maintain social distancing. Be assured that you are all in our thoughts as we go through this challenging time TOGETHER!

Please continue to check our website for updates, including information on other virtual programming offered by Native Child and Family Services of Toronto.

In unity,

Greg Flynn,
Cultural Camps Supervisor
