For general workplace guidelines, please refer to COVID-19 Workplace Information. All businesses operating in Saskatchewan must be in compliance with these guidelines. The information below provides specific guidelines for operators of child and youth day camps in Saskatchewan.
Day camps are permitted to open and must follow all requirements in the public health order and operate in compliance with all other applicable legislation and licensing requirements. Activities at the camps must align with the allowable services permitted within the Re-Open Saskatchewan plan. Overnight camps are not permitted.
All day camp services are limited to a maximum of 15 children per building space. This may mean 15 children per facility or, in the case of larger facilities where area permits, a facility reconfigured to allow a maximum of 15 children in one defined area. These areas must be separate for each group and need to be separated by a barrier (floor to ceiling barriers not necessary) that can prevent children, toys and other items from crossing over.
Groups of children and staff members assigned to them must stay together throughout the day and cannot mix with other groups. Staff should remain with the same group. Groups must be within in the same room/space at the same time, including pickups and drop-offs, meal times, playtime, outdoor activities, etc.
If a day camp is located within another facility (i.e. special care or personal care home), they are subject to all general restrictions for that facility and must ensure there is no interaction between children and staff/individuals in the other facility.
