SUMMER 2020 DAY CAMPS
Camp Chestermere is holding social distancing Day Camps for the Summer 2020 season - Enough! We have worked closely with both AHS and CHEMA in order to provide programming that will ensure the health and safety of all participants, while still maintaining a fun and exciting camp experience. Campers will be in cohorts of 8 children with two leaders. Cohorts are divided up by age so that campers are with others who are similar in age. We will have all campers run through pre-approved activities including Archery, Target-shooting, Power-tubing, Kayaking, Beach Time, Arts & Crafts and so much more. Activities will be tailored to the campers' age group. We will be diligently following the expectations laid out by AHS as the safety of your children is paramount. We are incredibly thrilled to bring Day Camp to you during this difficult time, and we hope that this experience can bring you and your families some reprieve. Thank you for continuing to be a part of this organization and allowing us to maintain Camp Chestermere as A Place to Belong.
