Clay & Crafts Summer Day Camp 2021

We are planning to run our popular Summer Camp again this summer.  Currently it is being planned with the same smaller ratios that we offered last summer to maintain distancing and safety for our campers and our staff.  The weeks we will be offering are: July 5, 12, 19, August 9 & 16th.  We plan to offer a Teen Week the week of August 3, which may include the wheel if we feel it is safe to do so.  Registration and more details will be available soon.   If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Administrator.

Please note that the City of Peterborough offers a Recreation Fee Subsidy Program for camps for dependent children.  Should you require assistance covering the registration fees for any camp and live in the City of Peterborough, you could be eligible.  Please visit the City page for more information.

Covid-19 Preparations:

Physical distancing: Each camper will have their OWN table, tools, and supplies, at least 6 feet apart. Our tall ceilings provide excellent air flow. We also have access to a large green space for outdoor distance games and activities.

Designated space: The camp area is clearly delineated for use by campers and camp staff only. Campers will bring own water/lunch (n.b., no refrigeration available)/sunscreen/hat/ blanket (for outdoors). Lunch and snacks will be at each individual’s table.

  • Outside green space for fresh air and no-contact activities
  • Frequent cleaning and no shared supplies, according to Peterborough Public Health guidelines
  • Ratio of staff to campers is 1 to 3, with a maximum of 6 campers and a minimum of 2 staff.
  • PPE are part of the KPG emergency first aid kit should close contact be required.
  • Non-contact, outdoor check in and pick up procedure will be outlined prior to camp start date.

Contact KPG Administrator to make an appointment to see our wonderful, safe space and discuss our high quality program.

Registration is also available in person at the Guild during open hours.
