Jays Care Foundation Virtual Summer Camp
St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club has partnered with the Jays Care Foundation to provide a new kind of camp experience.
Our virtual camps will provide a good mix of educational and fun activities that will allow your child to be social with their peers and our camp staff. Your child will dive into a world outside their home for 45 minutes per day and engage in highly interactive and remarkably fun sessions tailored to their age, and each week is assigned to a fun theme. Virtual camp is a great way for your child to connect with friends, make new friends, while being creative and learning new skills.
Your child will need access to a computer or tablet during the session. We will be using the platform Zoom. You will receive a link prior to the session, along with a password, through which you can join the meeting – no Zoom account is required to do so.
We will only use material that you have at home. Generally plastic bags, towels, rolled up socks, paper, crayons and color pencils. Also recycled material like egg cartons, glass containers, etc. Prior to each week of camp, a list will be sent out.
Virtual camp is $40/session.

CampAlbans – On site summer day camp
We are happy to announce that we will be able to offer in person camps for children ages 4 to 12 years old this summer. Our camps will have a different look to them, with the safety of our members and staff at the forefront.
We will offer a camp experience that will include outdoor physical activities, active and quiet games, arts and crafts and much more. To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, our camp programs will meet the health and safety guidelines and will be in alignment with provincial government and local public health guidelines. Guidelines include lower ratios and capacity, physical distancing, mandatory health screening and enhanced facility cleaning.
Therefore, we will have limited spots, and our camp days will be shorter to ensure proper cleaning and sanitization of our building. Camp groups will be smaller with a ratio of 8 children to 2 leaders, per cohort. Each cohort/group of children will stay together with their 2 leaders for the day and will not interact with other groups.
Before entering our building all children and parents will go through a wellness check. Once both parents and child have successfully passed the wellness check, only the child be allowed to enter our Club. Parents or caregivers will not be permitted to enter the building during drop off or pick up times, the Club will assign a staff/leader to accompany the child into and out of the building during these times.
We are hoping to have more information posted on our website by Friday June 19th and open online registration by June 24th.
We have not finalized all the details yet, however at this time, we are looking at a start date of July 6 and an end date of August 14th.
Other details that are not finalized:
- Camp day 9:00am-4:00pm
- Cost is $300/child for each 2 week session.
The number of camp groups as well as start and end dates will be partially determined by the needs of the community, therefore, if you are interested in sending your child for one or more sessions this summer, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
