Forest Rangers - Day Camp 

Covid - 19: Our Commitment 


Greetings from Great Moose Adventures,


The Ontario government gave the go-ahead for day camps to run as long as our current health situation maintains or improves. In the case that we are allowed to open, we are confident that we can offer a Day Camp program that is safe, enriching, educational and fun - following all health & safety guidelines provided by the Ministry of Health.  Within these guidelines, we are prepared to meet social distancing guidelines of 2 meters, daily health checks and small group programs with one teacher throughout the day. We will also be discontinuing our food and bus services, so families can provide individual safe lunches and transportation to/from camp.  


We are accepting registration for Day Camp with a tentative schedule of 8 weeks (July 13 - September 4), however we are not asking for payments until we have confirmation from the Ontario government that we are allowed to open.  We will pass along more information as soon as possible. 


Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Forest Rangers Day Camp is the foundation and frame of our summer program - where all of our campers have the opportunity to experience a summer camp that is safe and exciting.   Our day camp focuses on providing children with fun, engaging play-based opportunities to learn and practice important social skills - while also participating in our unique outdoor educational programs.
