Upon review of the Ontario public health guidelines regarding summer day camps, and with the health and safety of our campers and staff in mind, the Elora Centre for the Arts has decided that the restrictions would significantly impact our ability to deliver quality day camp programs in the current COVID-19 environment.  It is with sad hearts that we must cancel our day camps this summer.  We know how much our creative camp programs mean to families in our community, and we are so disappointed that this is the outcome.  All families will receive a full refund.
