We have new camps this year! The Marlins plan to run camps for 8 weeks July 5-Aug 27. There will be no camp August 4th and we will offer a reduced rate that week. Each camp is subject to cancellation or change if there is not sufficient registration. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic there are some changes to camp schedules and camps may have to be reduced or canceled if there are changes to public health guidelines.
Due to COVID-19 and limited space all camps will be half day camps. Specific start and end times can be found in each camp description below. We only have time in the pool/ on the pool deck from 8:00am - 11:00am Monday, Wednesday and Friday and from 8:00am - 10:00am Tuesday and Thursday. We do not have any more indoor spaces for camps. For this reason and unpredictable weather camps will be half days. If the weather is permitting we will do some outdoor activities, and if the weather is poor all activities will be done in the pool/ on the pool deck.
Each camp will remain in their camp cohort, and masks MUST be worn when possible. We will be following the guideline outlined in the following link: https://www.gov.nl.ca/covid-19/information-sheets-for-businesses-and-workplaces/sport-guidance/
To register, find the appropriate camp on our Events page and click Register Online. If bad weather persists causing earlier pick ups the fee will remain the same. There will be no refunds for weeks partially attended, or for member cancellations with less than 14 days notice. Please see camp descriptions below.
