COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR SUMMER CAMPS

We have received permission from our provincial government to run summer camps and are SO excited to see you this summer!

As we approach summer camps at NPCC, we ask all parents and caregivers to monitor the health of children every day. Campers may not attend camp if they display any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, headache, and a general feeling of being unwell.

We ask that you equip your child with the following every day: sunscreen, hat, light jacket, comfortable shoes, water bottle, snacks and lunch as campers are unable to share any food or personal belongings. Campers are asked to bring their food in reusable containers and take home all uneaten food and refuse. Lunches must be ready-to-eat as our kitchen facilities remain closed. Campers should not bring peanut/nut products. We ask you to refrain sending children to camp with toys. Cell phones are to be safely stowed away.

Please see below to view our full health and safety plan. Please note that as further information becomes available changes to the camps may become necessary. We will keep you updated with any relevant information.

Your team at NPCC

 

 

COVID-19 RISK MITIGATION

SAFETY

  • NPCC will exclusively accommodate summer camps while operating Monday through Friday, 7:30AM-5:30PM from July 6 – September 4, 2020. Adult programming and art exhibitions and events have been postponed or rescheduled.
  • Two or three summer camps (cohorts) will run concurrently at NPCC at any given time, each contained in a separate studio/gallery.
  • A cohort is defined as a group of children and staff members assigned to them who stay together throughout the day.
  • Each camp may operate with 8 campers, 1 teacher and 1 counsellor, for a total of 10 per cohort.
  • Two or three summer camps (cohorts) will run concurrently at NPCC at any given time, each contained in a separate studio/gallery. The notable exception is the week of August 17-21. Due to the popularity of "Imaginarium" and "Stop-Motion Animation" we will be running two "Imaginarium" classes and 2 "Stop-Motion" Animation" classes, for a total of 4 camps with 8 campers in each cohort. Each camp of 8 students will work in a separate studio all week.
  • Cohorts will not mix with other cohorts or be within the same room room/space/studio at the same time.
  • Staff members, parents or guardians and children will not attend the program if they are sick, even if symptoms resemble a mild cold. Symptoms to look for include: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, headache, and a general feeling of being unwell.
  • Parents and guardians must check the temperature and wellness of children daily before coming to the program. Parents and guardians will be reminded of this requirement when children are first registered for the program and through visible signage at entrances and drop off areas.
  • Staff must conduct active symptom screening of each child every day with the parent or guardian as they drop off their children.
  • Programs must keep daily records of anyone attending the day camp who stays for 15 minutes or longer (e.g. staff working each day, children, etc.). Records must be kept up-to-date and available to facilitate contact tracing in the event of an outbreak.
  • All visitors or special guests will also be documented.
  • Any program connected to a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19 will be required to close for a minimum of 72 hours to allow contact tracing, and then adhere to recommendations from City of Toronto Public Health.
  • Camp participants must bring their own sunscreen for outdoor activities as sunscreen will not be permitted to be shared.
  • Regrettably, we will be unable to offer end-of-week exhibitions and performances for parents. However, we are planning on a Summer Camper Exhibition, Sept. 6-16 in our Parkview, Emergence and Founders Galleries, provided that we are able to move forward with small events.

ILLNESS

  • If a child develops symptoms while at NPCC, the child will be isolated, away from other children and the parent or guardian will be notified to come and pick up the child immediately.
  • If a child requires close contact and care, staff will continue to care for the child until the parent or guardian is able to pick them up. Staff will wear a mask during all interactions with the child and will avoid contact with the child’s respiratory secretions.
  • Staff will wash their hands before donning a mask and before and after removing the mask (as per mask guidance), and before and after touching any items used by the child.
  • All items used by the child while isolated will be cleaned and disinfected as soon as the child has been picked up. Items that cannot be cleaned and disinfected (e.g. paper, books, cardboard puzzles) will be removed from the program and stored in a sealed container for a minimum of 10 days.
  • Camp participants will be reminded of hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette.
  • If a staff person develops illness while at work, they will immediately remove themselves from any contact with others, notify their supervisor and go home.
  • If a COVID-19 case is suspected, parents will be notified immediately. The local public health unit will be contacted to notify them of a potential case and advice will be sought regarding the information that will be shared with the public.
  • Camp participants or staff that are exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19 will be excluded from the program setting for 14 days. Public health will be consulted for procedures on testing before being permitted to rejoin the program.

DROP OFF AND PICK UP PROCEDURES

DROP OFF BY CAR

Please drive up to the walkway at the front entrance and stay in your car. A staff member will come to your car, have you sign in your child and will then escort your child into the Centre.

PHYSICAL DISTANCING

  • Two or three concurrent camp programs will be offered and separation between programs maintained.
  • Where possible, physical distancing practices will occur within each cohort.
  • In the classroom, children will sit 2 metres apart from each other. Each child will receive his/her own 2 square metre camper space, delineated by floor markings. All belongings of each child will remain within the camper space.
  • Avoided will be close greetings like hugs or handshakes and encouraged will be physically-distant greetings such as “air fives” and waves.
  • Staff will plan physically distant outdoor activities such as shadow tag and avoid activities that require clustering around a particular item or small area.
  • Where a shared outdoor space is used such as Neilson Park or its playground, cohorts must maintain a distance of 10 metres between groups.
  • There will be no non-essential visitors at the Centre. Parents or guardians will be unable to enter NPCC unless for emergency purposes.
  • Communication with parents will be by email or telephone call, if necessary.
  • Signs will be posted reminding persons not to enter if they are sick (even if symptoms resemble a mild cold).
  • Children may bring face masks to camp if the family desires. When possible, staff will reinforce that these campers wear masks.

USE OF SHARED SPACES

  • Outside play structures that are used by more than one group can only be used by one cohort at a time and must be cleaned and disinfected before and after use by each cohort. Children not within the cohort are forbidden to use structures until the cohort has left the facilities. Each cohort must clean and disinfect equipment between cohort uses.
  • Each cohort will have regulated visits to the washrooms, preventing mixing of cohorts. Washrooms will be cleaned between cohort visits. We understand that irregularities and unplanned occurrences are common during summer camp. In the event that a camper should need an unscheduled bathroom visit, those areas used will be cleaned and disinfected.
  • Cohorts that utilize a space that has other user groups will ensure the space is cleaned before and after using the space. Cleaning will be done by one person within the cohort directly before the group enters the space and after it exits the space. A cleaning log will be posted and used to track cleaning.

PROGRAM PLANNING

To help plan activities, staff will consider the following questions to determine the risk of the activities and whether they are allowed to proceed.

  • Does the activity violate a public health order?
  • Does the activity involve shared surfaces or objects frequently touched by hands?
  • Can an activity be modified to increase opportunities for physical distancing?

LUNCH AND SNACKS

  • There will be a “no food sharing” policy.
  • NPCC will not distribute food, water or snacks of any kind to campers.
  • All campers MUST bring their own water bottles.
  • Participants must label personal belongings.
  • Where possible, children will practice physical distancing while eating.
  • Utensils should be packed with lunch as to discourage eating with fingers.
  • Everyone will thoroughly wash their hands before lunch and snack time.
  • Each cohort will eat separately from the other.
  • Boomerang lunches and snacks will be observed where campers are asked to bring their food in reusable containers and take home all uneaten food and refuse.

CLEANING

  • The Centre will engage in frequent, thorough cleaning and disinfecting each day.
  • When possible, tools that have been used such as paint brushes, pencils, etc. will be disinfected at the end of the day.
  • Where possible, toys and equipment will be made of material that can be cleaned and disinfected regularly.
  • Hand sanitizer poses a potential risk for alcohol poisoning particularly for children, instead, all children and staff will participate in scheduled hand washing events throughout the day.
  • Staff will have access to alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol content and will use it frequently throughout the day.

Helen McCusker
A graduate of Sheridan’s Illustration Program, Helen has been making art for more than 40 years. Her main focus is on Figurative work – creating Expressionistic drawings and paintings that speak to movement, energy and the deeply personal.
 
Helen’s Figurative work always begins with drawing from live Artists’ models – looking for the elusive ‘something’ that carries the work beyond the skill of the drawing. It is mostly created in-session, using models with whom she has worked closely over many years. She sometimes brings in outside elements – found imagery, which is then incorporated into the work to create a narrative. Helen also works with Paper Engineering as counter-point to her drawing and painting, creating Abstract Pop-Up sculptures incorporating hand-painted papers and collage.
 
Helen instructs at Visual Arts Mississauga, Halliburton School of Art & Design and Neilson Park Creative Centre.

Steve is a graduate of Ontario College of Art and Design with a major in drawing and painting. He has exhibited his work in over 70 shows and has a diverse and experienced background as an artist/educator. His work is collected in private and corporate international collections. There are three main areas of interest to the artist, those being non-objective painting, life drawing and printmaking (generally in the medium of lithography).
 
In addition to active independent studio practice, Steve enjoys teaching and lecturing on art and art history as well as constantly taking workshops such as his life drawing sessions every Wednesday evening for the past 17 years. Steve is also involved in mentoring less experienced artists and various artistic collaborations. On a personal note, he has a heartfelt desire to obtain a MFA designation either in Canada or abroad. 
 
 
Bruce Sherman
Bruce Sherman has been painting for many years and especially enjoys painting outdoors. In the mid-90s, his twin brother talked him into directing his artistic enthusiasm into the “eternal animation project.” Along with this playful endeavour, Bruce has fallen upon many stories in life, whose very existence required “cartooning.” Whether tales of his own or those of his active children, the lighter side of life has provided an abundance of subjects for visual quips and characterizations. Last summer, he was commissioned to draw 10 cartoons depicting a series of comedic analogies. The cartoons seen here are a compilation of personal images and work for that client.
 
Marjan Verstappen
Marjan Verstappen’s practice encompasses drawing and sculpture, photography, and working with communities. Through these actions she explores concepts of mystery, truth, and how narratives about a place can be woven through objects and drawings.   
Recent exhibitions include Life, Onions and Hotdogs on Parade (Zalucky Contemporary), Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood (Art Gallery of Ontario), Gallery Galleria (Galleria Shopping Centre, Toronto), and the Fung Wah Biennial (Flux Factory, NYC).
Verstappen was born in New Zealand, where she received her BFA in Sculpture from Dunedin School of Art. She moved to Canada in 2012 and graduated from OCAD University with an MFA in 2014. She lives and works in Toronto, where she is co-director of Younger Than Beyoncé (YTB) Gallery.

Louise taught art voluntarily for ten years at her daughters' elementary school and has taught all ages in regularly scheduled classes and workshops at Neilson Park Creative Centre since 2002.
 
She has also taught at the Koffler Centre and continues to teach small and private art and art history classes at her studio. Louise is a member of the Colour and Form Society, and a member and facilitator of the Milkweed Collective. She has overseen the design and production of several large works of art by youth artists, one for permanent installation at NPCC and one for St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto.
