HEALTH AND SAFETY ARE TOP PRIORITIES FOR US!
It takes a lot of trust to send a child away for a week and we don’t take the responsibility lightly! At Camp our first organizational priority is the safety of our campers. A safe environment is the foundation for a fun summer camp experience. We have a great team working year-round to provide a safe and exciting place for your children.
At Camp Mini-Yo-We, the health and safety of our campers has always been our highest priority. During this COVID season, we have been working to ensure that we meet the guidelines of Ontario Public Health and the Simcoe Muskoka Public Health Unit. On top of the “new normal” guidelines of social distancing and extra cleaning protocols, we have pivoted our programs to keep guests in family cohorts. We are thankful that we hosted nearly 2,000 guests during the COVID period with ZERO transmissions of COVID.
As we look to the summer of 2022, some parents have been wondering about what our requirements around vaccination, masking and other COVID-19 requirements will be. We will continue to follow the guidelines of public health officials and meet whatever requirements are in place so that we can host as many campers as possible for next summer.
The most recent update from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health indicated that the province believes that all public health restrictions will be removed before the summer of 2022. This is fantastic news for us as we look to welcome campers back for an incredible summer.
We will continue to monitor this situation closely as we approach the summer. We will communicate with our community if anything changes. As a reminder, every camper that is registered for this summer can receive a 100% refund of their fees if they cancel before June 1st, 2022.
on site every week
of the summer
We aim to have three or more medical professionals on site every week of the summer. This team administers first aid, distributes camper medication, and deliver an opening day safety talk with all campers on sun safety, hydration and safe footwear. Positions exist for nurses, doctors and paramedics. Find out more about joining our team.
How We Do Things…
All medication is given to our team during check-in. Nurses administer prescriptions at meal times and in the evening as necessary. Campers are not permitted to keep medication in cabins.
Early week each core program performs a routine practice drill. This ensures everyone knows what the alarm sounds like and where to go in the event of a missing person or emergency situation.
Every year our summer team is trained to know how to deal with bullying, emergency situations and camper injuries. Our staff training is a week longer than other camps on average.
