The City of Red Deer will offer a number of summer day camps July 6 to Aug. 21 for children ages six to 12 years.
“We acknowledge that summer day camps play an important role for Red Deer’s families,” said recreation parks and culture manager Shelley Gagnon.
“We recognize that these programs are important for both the children’s well-being, as well as an important opportunity to socialize and make community connections. We are excited to be able to offer modified programming for children this summer.”
Small camp sizes will be offered in dedicated spaces at the Collicutt Centre, G.H. Dawe Community Centre and the Intermediate School (Culture Services).
Half-day programming will be available at each facility in the morning and afternoon, Monday to Friday.
“This will allow us to comply with provincial health regulations with a focus on safety and sanitization,” the city says.
Camps will provide summer activity for children to experience play, creativity and fun, while developing relationships and a sense of mastery.
Enhanced health and safety protocols will be in place to ensure the safety of staff, campers and families, says the city.
The preschool camps will not move forward this summer.
Registration for summer day camps is expected to start online Thursday at noon. Initially, the city said registration will begin Wednesday, but that changed due to technical difficulties.
