Updated May 27, 2020
We wish to keep you informed of updates regarding Town facilities, programs and events as information becomes available. The Town will continue to take our direction from Federal and Provincial Governments and York Region Public Health in an effort to protect the health and safety of our staff and community.
The Town's existing summer camp program is designed and structured in a way that cannot be delivered in line with current Provincial requirements for social distancing and gatherings. Based on this reality, the Town must cancel all camps and refund all fees paid. The Town is looking into the potential for a modified camp program which may be offered only if the Town is able to deliver it in a meaningful and safe manner.
The Town will continue to work with the Ontario Camping Association and Parks & Recreation Ontario to gain insight into industry best practices and procedures being developed across Ontario.
Everyone registered for a Town of Newmarket Summer Camp will receive a full refund. Registrants will receive an initial, automatic credit to their account. Residents are asked for their patience at this time as staff work quickly to process refunds, which may take up to eight weeks to complete. For those who paid by credit card, refunds will be processed to the card. A cheque will be issued to those who paid with cash or debit.
Registered Summer Programs
All registered programs have also been cancelled. In line with summer camps, it is not possible for the Town to safely offer its planned registered programs, including swimming lessons, fitness and cultural programs.
We look forward to being able to provide camps and programs again. Until then, please be safe, practice social distancing and continue to be vigilant in your efforts to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
