City will offer modified summer day camps

(Barrie, ON) The City of Barrie will offer modified summer day camps this year called Camp Barrie, with limited space. Registration will open on June 18 at 9 a.m. The camps will run for 8 weeks starting July 13.

The Province recently released the guidelines for operating day camps safely. Staff have reviewed the guidelines and developed modified programming for City camps. These additional health measures include physical distancing, smaller camp sizes, daily requirements for staff and camper health assessments, and extensive cleaning procedures.

Camp Barrie will be held at several outdoor locations across the city. Camps will run daily Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:00pm. The fee for a one-week camp will be $199. Activities will include arts and crafts, sports, and camp games.

The City is in the process of refunding all registrations for the previous 2020 summer camps. Anyone registered previously, will have to register again for the Camp Barrie. To register, visit
