Winter Break Camp 2020

Gymalaya Newmarket is excited to announce that we will be offering our popular Winter Break Camp. 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). 

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.

Important guidelines we will be upholding:

  • Drop off is available from 8:50AM – 9:10AM
  • All campers must be dropped off by 9:10AM as the doors will be locked at 9:10AM
  • No individual other than staff and campers will be permitted to enter the Gymalaya facility
  • A screening station will be located outside of the main entrance
  • Pick up time is between 2:50PM – 3:00PM
