We hope this letter finds everyone in good health.
As with last year, we are once again monitoring the third wave of the Covid virus. While the current circumstances that Ontario finds itself in are not where anyone hoped to be, it is anticipated that taking these drastic measures now of shutting things down and addressing the vaccinations should decrease cases significantly. As we did last year, the RHCC Day Camp will be extending the dates for full refunds, and final payments set out in our brochures.
Therefore, we are extending our worry-free cancellation date to the end of the stay-at-home order of May 20th, 2021. We are also extending the full payment date to May 20th from May 15th.
IN ADDITION, camp fees after May 20th will continue to be fully refundable if the Government does not allow camps to operate OR shut down camps mid-season due to Covid-19.
The Ministry of Health provided Summer Day Camps with approval to open in the Summer of 2020, and our Camp was able to open and operate successfully with ZERO Covid-19 cases. This format has been proven and will be followed again this year. In the event of a delay in the permitted operating we may be required to shift the Camp start date as we did last year. We are confident that the focus is on being able to operate safely. If the Province decides to close camps this year, all payments will be fully refundable.
Lastly, if there is a positive case of Covid-19 in your child’s cohort , which results in your child not attending Camp and must self-isolate for 14 days as per public health guidelines, you will receive a refund for the days missed.
We know this past year has been challenging for everyone. We continuously hear from parents that Camp is top priority for them to provide a fun packed environment for their children and we remain focused on being able to deliver an exciting, safe summer program for your child(ren).
We promise to continue to update you over the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
