New dates set for Summer Camp

We have been monitoring the Covid-19 situation in Greater Sydney closely, and with vaccination rates increasing and lockdown measures easing this month, we hope that Summer Camp will still be able to go ahead, but at the later date of Monday 24th– Thursday 27th January 2022.

We have made the decision to move the dates from December to January to allow for more certainty and stability around government restrictions and to give everyone more time to be fully vaccinated. If we can go ahead, Summer Camp will be held at the usual venue of The Sydney Academy of Sport and Recreation at Narrabeen.

We will be monitoring updates and health advice from NSW Government to ensure we’re fully compliant and proceeding only if the risk of exposure is deemed minimal.

What you need to know

We will have a Covid-19 Safety Plan in place, which will be regularly updated with the latest health advice and information to ensure the safety of everyone attending Camp. This will include the following three rules, which are important to note:

  • For the health and safety of all campers, carers and staff, we have concluded that all camp attendees (12+years) must be fully vaccinated. We will be asking all attendees to provide their vaccination information prior to Camp.
  • All people attending Camp must have a negative Covid-19 test result in the 72 hours preceding the start of camp.
  • We will be asking all carers and staff to wear masks when indoors and providing any direct care supports to campers.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this uncertain and very challenging time, and we are very grateful for your support and trust. The health and safety of your child, and of everyone attending our camps, is our number one priority. We hope we can see this plan through and run a safe and fun Summer Camp for everyone!

Please let us know as soon as possible if you are interested in sending your child to Summer Camp on these new dates and we’ll be in contact.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Mitch, Camp Manager, at mitch.taylor@mdnsw.org.au or speak to a member of the Client Services team on 1800 635 109.

We cannot wait to see you all again!
