COVID-19 Summer Camps Update


We are encouraged (and hopeful) with the Government of Alberta’s plan for the Phase 1 lifting of restrictions related to COVID-19 that includes summer day camps (with occupancy limits) . As such, we are keeping the majority of our summer programming schedule intact for the time being. Since early April, various U of L departments have been working collaboratively to come up with viable options to address the evolving environment surrounding COVID-19 and its effect on our summer programming – online and in-person (with restrictions).

Our teams are currently working on scenarios and activities that can be accommodated under current provincial guidelines, how to safely check campers both in and out of the University, what facilities might be available and how to evolve the strategy should the province move into Phase 2 or 3 as the summer progresses.

We will continue to monitor the Government of Alberta reopening schedule and guidelines as they evolve and are prepared to alter, adapt or cancel our summer camps as required. If your in-person summer camp is cancelled, all registrants will receive a full refund of their paid fees.

All the while, our teams are continuing to create a new Mini U online camp for the summer — registration details to come. Registration is free for households and the program will provide a camp experience at home. Campers will be able to use at-home supplies or purchase full kits with all the supplies they need for an awesome week of learning and fun! They will have the opportunity to meet with other campers and instructors online to participate in hands-on, engaging activities. They will also be able to work at their own pace on various other projects provided throughout the week. Destination Exploration, the Art Gallery, the Conservatory of Music and Horns Sport & Rec are excited to come together to offer this amazing summer experience!

We know your children enjoy the U of L summer camp experience as much as we do and we are doing all we can to bring them the same engaging, enriching summer experience they’ve all come to expect.

We will continue to provide regular updates on our websites and send updated information to you directly (via email) as the situation evolves. Please stay connected and stay safe.
