Summer Camp (2020)

Gymalaya Newmarket is excited to announce that we will be offering summer camp from July 13th – September 4, 2020! Camp this year will look different to accommodate all the new guidelines and protocols. Therefore, camp is open for children ages 6-10 (5 year olds may attend if accompanied by an older sibling). Also, according to the guidelines, all campers must be registered for a full week (no half day or flexible day passes available).

Gymalaya is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all our employees and customers. In order to provide the highest level of safety, we have developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan. The recommendations from the York Region Public Health and the Ministry of Health are constantly changing due to the evolving COVID-19 situation. We are committed to monitoring these changes and adapting our safety protocols as needed throughout the summer. 

Registration starts on Thursday July 2nd, 2020 at 9:00AM. Limited spots for each week.

  • Drop off is available from 8:50AM – 9:10AM
