Overview 

This web page was developed to provide easily accessible information and recommendations to support campoperators in transitioning to mitigation and symptom-based management of COVID-19.  

Keeping COVID-19 transmission low in the community is important to help prevent the introduction of the virus into settings such as camps, schools and child care. The primary goal is to make camps as safe as possible. Parents, OPH and camp operators each have a role to play in keeping children as safe as possible.
