Young girl running outside summer

The Town of Aurora intends to offer in-person day camps this summer with registration tentatively set to open in June. Our decision to run camp programs is pending legislation and guidelines from the Provincial government. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our campers, staff and community members.

We are currently working hard to prepare for an exciting, memorable, and safe camp experience that you have come to expect from the Town of Aurora. With this said, we know there has been a lot of change over the last few weeks and we know more is likely to come before summer arrives. We will continue to adapt programming as needed, engage with York Region Public Health on all safety protocols and hope to provide you with an update on our plans for camp operations by the end of May.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to plan for a safe summer ahead. Continue to check back for the most up-to-date Summer Camps information.


Take Home Kits

The Town of Aurora has created a variety of exciting and interactive Take Home Kits to enjoy in the comfort and safety of your own home. From preschool to children, youth to adults, we have something for everyone. Kits must be purchased online. Please visit our Take Home Kits webpage for full details.
