Kids On Track COVID Plan

The health and wellness of Kids On Track families continues to be our highest priority. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Canada, utilizing trusted sources such as Alberta Health Services and Health Canada.

Now more than ever we recognize the importance of building community with one another. We also recognize that it is not a simple thing to accomplish in light of the guidances and recommendations from Alberta Health Services. We want to assure you that great attention has gone into our program plans. We learned a lot from navigating programming this past year. With so many changes happening, you can be confident that one thing has not changed- the staff and volunteers at Kids On Track care deeply about you, our KOT families. Every effort is being made to ensure safety for our participants as well as for our teams.

How We Are Keeping Each Other Safe at Day Camps

  • Capacities are limited to restrict mass gatherings
  • Commonly touched surfaces or objects are sanitized frequently
  • Contact information for all people on-site (including casual volunteers and event operators) is collected and kept for two weeks. Time stamps for entry and exit of all participants are recorded and kept for reference in the event of contact tracing required.
  • Masking (medical or non medical face mask, covering the nose, mouth, and chin) is required in all indoor spaces, such as community leagues and busses. Programs will take place primarily outdoors, where masking will not be mandatory.
  • Staff, volunteers, and participants are required to pass an AHS screening questionnaire at the beginning of every day that they attend. Should they answer ‘yes’ to any of the questions, or develop symptoms during the day, they will not be allowed to attend programming. Participants exhibiting symptoms will be separated from other participants, masked, and kept separate until parents can pick up the participant.
  • Participants who develop symptoms will be subject to the isolation requirements as defined in CMOH Order 35-2021, which states that children under the age of 18 who exhibit a core COVID-19 symptom (fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste/smell) will require either a negative PCR test with a decrease in symptoms, or a 10 day isolation before returning to Kids On Track programming.
  • In the event of a participant receiving a COVID-19 diagnosis, the program will be shut down and all close contacts will be notified. Due to expedited isolation requirements for fully-vaccinated Albertans, the program may be able to restart sooner than 10 days after contact.
  • Prorated refunds are available for participants who are unable to complete their selected days of Day Camps due to COVID-19 symptoms or contact with a positive COVID-19 case.
  • All COVID-19 safety policies are subject to change based upon provincial and federal health regulations.

Some staff continue to work remotely and are not in the office during regular office hours. If you need to get in touch with a staff member, we ask that you call or email us. Visits into the office remain by appointment only.

Cancellation Procedures

Kids On Track reserves the right to cancel any programs with insufficient registration. Participant withdrawals made up to 7 days before the start of a program will be refunded subject to a $10 withdrawal fee.  

Should the Government of Alberta restrict or cancel day camps due to COVID-19 public health orders and guidelines, a participant contracts COVID-19 prior to coming to the day camp, or is required to self-isolate, a full refund will be issued. If a day camp is cancelled part of the way through the week or a child cannot attend the full day camp week due to required self-isolation, then a prorated refund will be given less the $10 withdrawal fee. 

Kids On Track reserves the right to alter programming based on restrictions, weather, or other unforeseen circumstances. If this affects the participant, parents will be notified. For example, if weather is not permitting to have the day camp outdoors, and restrictions allow, we will move the day camp indoors. If restrictions do not allow for indoor gatherings, the program will be cancelled for that day.
