City Of Windsor Advertised Summer Programming Cancelled

The City of Windsor’s Recreation & Culture Department has cancelled all of the advertised programming planned for the summer of 2020 due to COVID-19.

Recreational programming restrictions, social distancing and approved gathering numbers are all factors in cancelling this year’s summer programming.

“Even when the City of Windsor enters Stage 2 of the framework to reopening our province, recreational activities will be restricted at indoor facilities, therefore it limits the type of programs we can offer. Until we have more provincial clearance and a better idea of what we can and can’t offer our residents, we are disappointed to announce that the 2020 summer programming will be cancelled,” said Ray Mensour, Executive Director of Recreation and Culture.

The City of Windsor is investigating options to operate a modified summer day camp that would include a reduced capacity and other COVID-19 safety measures.

To accommodate social distancing in our local programs, modified camps would not include field trips but would incorporate more arts and crafts and host activities within a consolidated area to ensure everyone’s safety. Only a select number of centres may offer this opportunity due to COVID-19, and camps would run at a weekly rate of $151 per child or a daily rate of $33 per child.

A short survey has been created to get feedback. You can find that here.
