For Immediate Release
Thursday, July 2, 2020 - Port Hope, ON
The Municipality of Port Hope is pleased to announce that day camp registration will begin on Monday, July 6, 2020, and camp is scheduled to begin the following week, on July 13, 2020.
“Municipal staff have done an extraordinary job of preparing detailed policies and best practices in anticipation of our day camps resuming this summer,” notes Wendy Meadows, Member of Council for the Municipality of Port Hope and the councillor responsible for the Parks, Recreation, and Culture portfolio. “While there have been many modifications made to our regular day camp programming in order to comply with government directives and to be mindful of the safety and wellbeing of our campers and staff, the camp will offer engaging, fun, and meaningful programming for many of our youngest residents this summer.”
Camp registration will be conducted by staff over the phone on a first-come, first-served basis. Registrations for day campers between the ages of 6 and 10 years old will be accepted each week until Thursday prior to the week of camp. Intent to register will be received via email to email@example.com each week. Parents are asked to email their intent to register including details of each child, their age and address. Staff will then call to complete the pre-screening and registration details. All registration steps are available at porthope.ca/day-camps.
In order to safely register, participate and enjoy camp, parents and caregivers will be required to read and agree to the Day Camp Parent Handbook, a guide that includes all of the day camp details for parents and caregivers. The Handbook is available for review on the day camps webpage.

To work within the regulations and to uphold safe hygiene protocols, the following modifications have been implemented to the day camp programming:
