Registration for summer programs is open!

Zatzman Sportsplex Summer Day Camp Update: June 15, 2020

On June 12, 2020 the Government of Nova Scotia released a set of guidelines for summer day camps.  To read the news release, please visit their website.

These guidelines advise that physical distancing must be maintained at camp in order to ensure the safety of children and staff. We have carefully reviewed the advice of Dr. Strang and consulted with programmers and parents to help inform our decision.

We have decided to cancel summer camps scheduled for the weeks of July 6, 2020 and July 13, 2020. Your child’s safety is our top priority. We do not see a way to safely and effectively maintain 6-feet between every camper and staff member, at all times for 8+ hours, while still delivering the engaging and exciting day camps you have come to expect from the Sportsplex.

This was not an easy decision, and we understand the potential impact that this will have on families. Since these situations can evolve quickly, we are not cancelling all our summer camps yet. Should there be changes to the Provincial restrictions and guidelines we will review the options to start camps.

We will make further decisions at the following times:

  • On June 29, 2020 an announcement will be made for camps beginning the week of July 20, 2020 and July 27, 2020
  • On July 13, 2020 an announcement will be made for camps beginning the week of August 3, 2020, and August 10, 2020
  • On July 27, 2020 an announcement will be made for camps for the latter part of August. Those that start: August 17, 2020, August 24, 2020, and August 31, 2020.
