Statement on COVID-19
Summer 2021

Below you will find highlighted the significant elements of our operational plan. This plan will be updated as needed to comply with Public Health guidelines. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us via email at info@snidermountainranch.ca  or by phone at (506) 432-6362.

Drive-thru drop off & pick up:​

  • Drop off: Please review the screening questionnaire prior to arrival. You will drop your camper off at the door of their cabin and have the opportunity to meet their cabin leaders. We ask that ONLY campers enter the building.

  • Pick up: You will drive up to your camper's cabin for pick up after signing them out. Please note, we will not have Rodeo on Fridays again this year.

Cabin groupings

  • Your camper will be assigned to a cabin for the week. They will participate in most camp activities, as well as meal times and morning/evening bathroom times together.

  • Physical distancing will not need to be maintained within each grouping. There will be minimal mixing of groupings. 

  • Transparent vinyl has been installed at the head of each bed to prevent the spread of germs.

Health & hygiene practices:

  • Campers will be reminded regularly of good hygiene practices (ie. hand washing, coughing/sneezing into a tissue or elbow, physical distancing from other groupings).

Cleaning & Disinfecting procedures:

  • We have a dedicated cleaning staff, who will thoroughly clean and disinfect the building regularly.

  • Bathrooms will be disinfected twice a day, as well as between scheduled cabin times in the morning and at bedtime.

  • Tables will be disinfected between uses during mealtimes.

  • High-touch surfaces in cabins will be disinfected twice a day.

Meal times:

  • We have installed plexiglass in front of the serving window (think Subway).

  • Tables will be set up to maintain physical distancing between cabins.

Program & Activities:

  • Recreation staff will maintain physical distancing unless doing so jeopardizes the safety of a camper or staff (ie. assisting campers mount a horse).

  • All program equipment will be sanitized twice daily and when soiled.

Does my child need to wear a mask?

No, children are not required to wear masks at summer camp.

What does "minimal mixing of groups" mean?

Cabin groupings will participate in most camp activities, meal times, and scheduled morning/evening bathroom times together. Some outdoor activities may include mixed groupings of cabins, such as evening games and free time.

What happens if my camper has symptoms?

  • Prior to arrival, be sure to review our screening questionnaire. Anyone arriving with or developing 2 symptoms (or 1 symptom if that symptom is purple toes or fingers) will be sent home, and parents will instructed to self-isolate the child and call 811 for direction.

  • A up-to-date list of symptoms can be found here.
