COVID-19 UPDATES

As our Public Health experts begin to share plans for the cautious re-opening of our province, it has become increasingly apparent that organizations will need to practice physical distancing and limit the size of gatherings throughout the summer and into the fall. Due to these restrictions, we have cancelled our Summer and Fall 2020 day camp program.  An announcement regarding Winter PD camps will be made in January 2021.

For complete details on all Day Camp announcements related to COVID-19, please visit our COVID-19 Updates page.

Day Camps

PD camps

– are for children currently in Grades PR-6.

UPDATE: As the start of school approaches, we wanted to provide an update as to the status of our PD Day Camp program.  The Mount continues a phased, return-to-campus approach. With the health and safety at the forefront of planning, access to our campus remains limited. We know parents and guardians are eager to finalize their childcare plans for this Fall, and with our limited campus access, we have made the decision to cancel our PD Day Camp program for fall 2020. We remain hopeful we will be able to offer PD and March Break Day Camps in the winter and spring of 2021.  An announcement on those camps will be made in January 2021.
