2021 COVID-19 Implications

The Township of South Frontenac has made the difficult decision to cancel Swim and Day Camp programs for the 2021 season due to the ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19. This is the second season of traditional Township summer programs to be cancelled because of the pandemic.

The cancellation of the Swim & Day Camp comes after careful consideration from the Township’s Emergency Control Group (ECG) regarding the safety of South Frontenac residents and staff. Similar to last years’ decision to cancel the programs, the ECG felt the programs would impose unnecessary risk for the community. As well, these programs are staffed by students and youth and there is continuous concern regarding the added responsibility that would be required of young staff to ensure participant safety.

We will miss our Campers, Swimmers and Staff, but we all need to do our part to keep South Frontenac safe. For more information, please see the media release regarding the decision.
