Our COVID-19 Re-opening Plan
As the Province of Alberta entered Stage 2 of its re-opening plan on June 10 and has met the threshold to enter Stage 3 on July 1, we are busy preparing for a potential re-opening of Camp Kindle on September 1.
We will not be offering our traditional summer camp programs in 2021. The health and safety of our children and families are our first priority. Because so many of our kids are immune compromised, we must proceed with the extreme care and attention as we move to re-open Camp Kindle. As you know, it takes months of planning and lead time to recruit, hire and train the right staff to run a safe and successful cancer camp. In a normal year, this begins in January.
While there isn’t enough time to safely re-open this summer, we are working on a plan to re-open Camp Kindle effective September 1, 2021. We have applied for funding to contract a public health care professional to review our current COVID-19 infection prevention and control measures. This will help to guide potential re-opening strategies for our fall programming and rental operations. If all goes well, we will be able to offer fall Family Camp. We hope your family can join us for this magical weekend.
For now, we will continue to offer Glamp Kindle—our three-day private family get-aways—throughout the summer. We are also planning an outdoor Family Fun Day for August 28, 2021, at Camp Kindle. We will update you on our plans soon. In the meantime, please save the date!
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we prepare to safely re-open Camp Kindle for our traditional camp programs.
