Important information for summer, 2021

Please read the following regarding COVID protocol for summer camp

Here at Frenda, we will naturally be following the direction of provincial and local health authorities as we plan for our summer camp program. 

  • Masking while indoors will likely be a reality, if it is still deemed necessary for this age group by the summer.
  • Our staff will be on site 2 full weeks before our children’s camps begin, and they will be receiving special training during our orientation week, to fully abide by all COVID protocol and precautions. 
  • Our programming day will likely be adjusted to allow for staggered mealtimes.  This will enable appropriate distancing in our cafeteria. 
  • All our meetings and campfire events will be held outside, weather permitting. 
  • In the event we have to meet indoors, both the cafeteria and fireside room will be used, to space out campers and staff appropriately.
  • We will most likely be registering reduced numbers this year for our camp weeks as well, which will make distancing easier in our cabins and activities.  
  • As the situation evolves throughout the Spring, we will determine if we require a negative COVID test prior to arrival, or whether we will simply do a temperature check and symptom/travel questionnaire prior to admission in the main building.
  • If travel restrictions are still in place, campers from the US will only be permitted if they can demonstrate that they have arrived in Canada 14 days prior, have isolated according to regulations, and will provide a negative COVID test taken at the end of their isolation.
  • We will have medical staff on site all summer, and will have dedicated rooms for isolation, should anyone manifest symptoms of any kind. 
  • We are also training our summer and full time staff regarding extra cleaning, sanitizing, and use of our new equipment (Victory Sprayers), which will be utilized constantly throughout the day.


Kindly note that Frenda is not open to unscheduled visitors during this time.  Please refrain from coming on site, as we are not able to accommodate visitors.
