OTTAWA – With sights set on better days ahead, the city’s Summer eGuides are now online.
“Offered in English and French, peruse our COVID-modified summer camps, outdoor activities and virtual offerings,” city staff released in a statement Monday (April 26). “Registration takes place online starting Wednesday, May 5 at 9 p.m.”
The start of in-person camps and activities will be subject to the prevailing COVID-19 restrictions being relaxed sufficiently to allow for the program to operate. However, it is important to provide residents enough lead time, especially parents and guardians, to plan for this summer.
COVID-19 modified in-person programming at select locations
- Low-ratio summer camps: Fun and creative physically distanced sports, games and crafts for children and youth between the ages of 4 and 12. Activities will be held outdoors whenever possible and enhanced safety measures will be in place.
- Outdoor recreation activities: Cycling and tennis for children and adults.
- Inclusive recreation activities: Activities for children, youth and adults with disabilities.
