Summer Camps - COVID-19 Update (6/2/2020)

Due to the ongoing risks associated with COVID-19 and in the interest of public safety, the Town of Aurora has made the difficult decision to cancel all 2020 Summer Camp programs as originally published and scheduled.

Full refunds will be issued to all registered participants. Registrants who paid by credit card will be refunded back to the same credit card. All other payment methods (cash, cheque, debit) will be placed on account as a credit to be used for future Town of Aurora Recreation Programs. If registrants wish to receive a refund opposed to a credit on account, please email your request to our Customer Service Representatives at rleisure@aurora.ca 

With direction and assistance from the Province and York Region Public Health, Town of Aurora Recreation staff are working on modified summer camp options. Town staff continue to look into the possibility of offering these new day camps in compliance with provincial guidelines regarding social gatherings and physical distancing. Town staff will continue to work with the Ontario Camps Association and Parks & Recreation Ontario to gain insights into industry best practices and procedures being developed across Ontario. The Town of Aurora will consider whether it is feasible to offer any modified summer camps and if programs can be delivered in a safe and meaningful manner while still adhering to these provincial guidelines. If the Town of Aurora decides to run these alternative camp options, a new registration process will be opened up.

The health and safety of our campers is always our top priority and we will continue to work with public health officials to determine what additional health and safety measures can be put in place to protect campers and staff, should camps be allowed to proceed.

Please note refunds may take 4-6 weeks to process due to volume. Thank you for your patience and support as we work together to keep our community safe.
