Greater Vernon Recreation summer camp registration now open online

News

Greater Vernon Recreation Services has been working diligently to develop summer day camp options that provide great recreation experiences, while continuing to follow provincial health guidelines to keep participants and our community safe.

Registration for summer camps is now open online.

Summer day camps provide recreation opportunities for hundreds of Greater Vernon area children each year with safe, informative and fun activities throughout the summer months. Recreation Services day camps help encourage physical activity, healthy living and a community of connectedness for children and families, which is particularly important during this difficult time.

Recreation Services has worked in collaboration with surrounding Okanagan municipalities and the BC Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA) to develop risk reduction mitigation plans for the provision of camps. The plans have been approved by the provincial government and details of the plans are available on the Greater Vernon Recreation website.

With these new resources and best practices in place, Recreation Services is ready to provide safe and fun activities, while continuing to encourage sound hygiene practices and physical distancing by all participants and camp leaders.

We will continue to adjust and adapt our practices as required, based on notices and guidance from the BC Centre for Disease Control and B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer.
