UPDATED JULY 28, 2022 – Please note that due to the evolving situation, mandatory mask-wearing has been re-instated at CAMMAC, along with other adjustments to the previous protocols (details below).

Please note that this information is subject to further change at any time, based on current government regulations, as well as any additional guidelines that CAMMAC management deems necessary for the well-being of our guests and employees.

Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that their children follow applicable guidelines at all times, without exception.

HEALTH MEASURES APPLICABLE DURING CAMMAC PROGRAMS AND FOR GROUP RENTALS

Due to the evolution of the current pandemic, in compliance with the recommendations of the Association des camps du Québec and government regulations, CAMMAC’s Board of Directors has decided to implement the following sanitary constraints:

  • Masks are now mandatory in shared indoor spaces. The only exceptions are when seated to eat meals, when drinking in the bar area and when playing a wind or brass instrument.  Teachers may also remove their masks during courses, and must maintain a suitable distance from the participants when without their masks.
  • Vaccination is strongly recommended but no longer mandatory.
  • Participants should ideally have two negative antigen tests (rapid tests) before coming on site.
  • Participants must arrive symptom-free.
  • Participants that develop symptoms during their stay will be asked to leave the site.  If their symptoms later disappear and they test negative, they may return to the site.  The nurse must administer a rapid antigen test before they can resume participation.
  • Teachers and staff members who notice anyone with apparent symptoms listed below will advise the nurse who will assess the individual, including administering a rapid antigen test (if deemed appropriate). If symptoms are confirmed, the individual will be notified that they must leave the site.

DURING YOUR STAY

 

Good Participant Code of Conduct:

  • You must be without symptoms of COVID-19 when you arrive on site.
  • Prioritize outdoor activities or activities in well-ventilated areas.
  • Hand washing is mandatory in transitional zones: change of floors/circulation in the central stairwell, change of studios, entrance to the dining room.
  • Store personal belongings properly to avoid mixing personal belongings with those of other people.
  • Keep accommodations clean and tidy.
  • Ensure proper respiratory etiquette at all times, and wash hands frequently.

 

Food Services:

  • The hot and cold buffet service has been completely removed. Food will be served in individual portions on trays, cafeteria-style.

CAMMAC HAS YOUR WELL-BEING IN MIND

 

Changes have been made to the facilities to protect everyone’s health and safety:

  • Hand soap dispensers have been added in common areas to facilitate disinfection when moving between areas.
  • The ventilation systems are routinely verified and maintained. They are operated in “always on” mode and at maximum capacity. Air will be drawn from outside whenever possible.
  • The large multiseat sofas in the common areas have been replaced with captain-style chairs to encourage distancing, even during gatherings or group activities.

 

Housekeeping and cleaning:

  • No housekeeping will be done in the rooms and private bathrooms during a guest’s stay. Depending on the length of the stay, additional supplies will be left in the room.
  • Housekeeping of common and shared spaces will be carried out according to frequency of use:
    • Basement and ground floor bathrooms: 2 times per day.
    • Bathrooms on the accommodation floors: 2 times per day.
    • Concert hall and studios: once per day or as needed.
