Online registration for a modified summer camp will begin on June 29, 2020, with the first week of ‘Camp Caledon’ starting July 20, 2020. It will run for seven weeks, until September 4, 2020 at the Caledon Centre for Recreation and Wellness, Albion Bolton Community Centre and Mayfield Recreation Complex.

Camp is intended for children ages 4 to 12, and from 8:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. for Caledon residents. Full details are available online: Summer Camp.

Several health and safety measures will be in place to protect campers and staff.
