TEEN LEADERSHIP Summer 2020

We have the green light to open up our day camp this summer and we have lots of exciting challenges and outdoor activities planned.  

We are just waiting for final confirmation from the City of Montreal that we have our summer permit to open Benny Center (located in St. Monica School). 

This summer we will lead each camper in the discovery of different individual sports, new leisure activities and challenging outdoor pursuits, while moving our activities outdoors, initiating physical distancing activities and increasing everyone’s hygiene routines. Our detailed parent and campers guide to our new routines and health practices will be available next week.

Youth and staff will remain in the same group for the 7 weeks of summer camp and extended program. Any staff and children showing any health symptoms will not be permitted to come to camp. 

Focus this summer will be on co-operation, flexibility and teamwork as we all navigate our new day camp challenges together! Hope to see you on June 29th.

The Quebec government has just announced that summer day camps will be permitted to open this summer under specific COVID-19 guidelines that will be published next week.

Jeunesse Benny is working in partnership with the City of Montreal CDN-NDG Borough to explore different ways to organize a summer activities that will respond to your family’s needs in a COVID-19 context.

We will be offering a teen summer program this summer, implementing all Government health and safety measures to protect all children and staff.  In order to put physical distancing measures in place, we will however be reducing the maximum number of children registered in camp.  This summer’s re-organized Day Camp activities will be available as soon as we have Quebec’s public health guidelines for summer camps.
