Summer Camps

  • We’re pressing play on active summer fun with 2 camps each week starting July 20th. In anticipation of welcoming summer campers, we are implementing a number of safety measures to ensure all members, users and campers have a safe and healthy experience at the CGC:
    • Summer Camps begin with small groups of 8 campers and 2 leaders
    • Campers will be kept separate from other users of the facility
    • Campers will use a separate entrance and exit for drop-off and pick-up
    • Campers will be accompanied by a staff member while travelling throughout the building to ensure social distancing
    • Each camp will be set up in their own rooms and will use separate change rooms to access the Aquatics Centre
