COVID-19 Summer Camp FAQ

Will summer camp happen in 2020?


Summer Camp programs will not be running this summer. The announcement on May 19, 2020 by the Ontario Government confirmed that overnight camps will not be operating in Ontario.


Will there be summer camp programs in 2021?


We believe summer camp will be needed more than ever in the months and years ahead. Children have been inside, isolated from friends and missing all the various ways they usually gather. Camp provides them with a place to be outdoors, among friends and leaders who will help them grow in social skills and personal and spiritual health.  Continue to check our website for Summer 2021 dates and rates! 

Can I come visit camp?


Currently our camp property is closed under the non-essential emergency order.  Until we have further instructions on congregate gatherings, we ask that you not visit camp at this time.

I have registered for camp already and paid fees. Now what?


Your full fees will be refunded with the following options:


Donation: If you are able, your registration fees can be changed into a full or partial donation. This would be a significant help to us in this very difficult season


Defer Balance: Camper fees that have already been made can be applied to the 2021 season.


Full Refund: You may request a full refund of fees paid to date, and all cancellation fees will be waived. 

What does this announcement mean for the fall bookings?


We anticipate being operational this fall.  We are continuing to monitor the information provided by the government and public health department.  If you have a current booking or have questions or concerns, please contact our Guest Group Registrar Laurie Russell at: [email protected]

How can I support camp through this difficult time?


Pray: Please join us in praying for a quick resolution to the COVID 19 crisis.  Follow us on Instagram at Pray4Pioneer for prayer requests.


Make a Donation: If you’re in a position to support Pioneer Camp financially, now is a great time to do that. You can learn more on our Donation page. Please do not feel any obligation from us – we know that finances have become precarious for many people.
