Toronto Parks and Recreation offers emergency day camps for children affected by TDSB school closures
  
Parks and Recreation -- Toronto Parks and Recreation announced today that it
will offer emergency day camps for elementary school students aged 6 to 13
affected by Toronto District School Board school closures.

Camps will be offered at 45 select recreation centres from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
daily. Pre-registration for the camps is mandatory. Registration by telephone
only will start on Sunday, April 22 at 8:30 a.m. There is no registration at
the centres where camps are offered. Parents should call 416-338-4386 to
register. Camp fees are $50 a week. Low-income families who cannot afford to
pay camp fees can apply to have the fees waived under the City's Welcome
Policy.

A limited number of spaces will be available at these emergency day camps
offered to help families that do not have any other child care options.

On the first day of camp, parents must accompany their children and complete a
medical and emergency contact form. They will need to provide health card
numbers for their children, special medical needs information and emergency
contact phone numbers. Campers are required to bring their own lunch.
