Keeping COVID out of our Camps

The health and safety of our campers and staff is our top priority as we plan for summer 2021. While it is difficult at this time to know exactly what the city and provincial guidelines for camp will be down the road, for now, we are planning to run our programs in relatively the same manner that we did for summer 2020, which was a success. All of our camp programs will adhere to the most current City of Ottawa and Province of Ontario COVID-19 guidelines and we will pivot as necessary to ensure a safe yet unforgettable summer experience for all our campers.

This summer Day Camp and Sports Camp (for obvious reasons, we are not able to offer Travelling Sports Camp) are being offered in two-week blocks.  You must sign up for a two-week session. Each camp does offer a four-day option the first week of August and all Specialty Camps are one week.


SJCC Members Save on Camp

In order to benefit from Member pricing at SJCC Summer Camps you must have an SJCC Family Membership at the time of camp registration and you must remain a member for the duration of your child’s stay at camp. No refunds will be issued for the difference of the member/non-member price when the membership is purchased after the program registration has been confirmed.
