COVID-19 Registration is open for our 2020 summer eCamps!
The COVID-19 crisis has created, in our opinion, a situation which prevents us this summer from offering the safe and fun experience to which Camps Garnier and Marion participants have become accustomed. We therefore regret to inform you that we have cancelled our camps at our Whitby (Garnier) and Pickering (Marion) locations.
However, our team has worked very hard in the last few weeks to plan and develop ONLINE eCAMPS for July and August. Our camp counselors cannot wait to share this experience with the campers for a summer filled with laughter, surprises and adventures !
Please see below for further information on our eCamps.
(Please note that, due to these exceptional circumstances, not all activities or other information on our website will apply.)

How Our eCamps Work
As our camp locations are closed for the summer, our eCamps will come to you!
Just like at our usual camps, eCampers will be placed in their age group on the first day. Each group will be hosted by two counselors for the week. Special guests will visit for specific activities.
Interactive online activities each morning from 10 am to noon
eCampers will participate in a variety of fun, interactive activities each day of the week and will be able to communicate with other eCampers in their age group. All activities will be delivered in French by our dynamic team of trained counselors, and will be in keeping with the week’s theme and the age range of the group.
Examples of activities:
• A daily brain teaser
• Sports and physical activity
• Scientific experiments
• Learn new songs
• Friendly competitions
Afternoon Video Activity:
At the start of each afternoon (Mon-Thurs), eCampers will receive a pre-recorded video with an activity that they can do on their own or with their family.
The Online Platform
Camps Garnier and Marion eCamps will be delivered through the secure Google Meet application. In order to participate, your child will need the following:
• Access to a personal computer, tablet or other mobile device
• A good internet connection for video-conferencing capacity
For security reasons, we will send a password to parents and guardians which eCampers will need in order to be connected.
How to Prepare for eCamp
• The eCamper should get ready at 9:45 am so that he/she is connected and ready to participate at 10:00 am.
• Find a quiet spot where your child will be able to fully participate with minimal distractions.
• We will use items easily found around the house for crafts. You will receive a list of materials needed in advance.
• Some physical activities will require a little more space around the computer or mobile device.
• Please remember to provide a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle should your child wish to participate in the eCamp outside in the yard.
