Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the city has decided to cancel the summer program session, which includes summer camps and July events.

In order to prioritize the safety and health of residents and staff, and in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the city has cancelled the summer program session, including summer camps and the outdoor playground program.

Additionally, all city-led events, sporting events, tournaments and community event permits are cancelled for the month of July.

Community members who enrolled in a summer program will automatically receive a refund in the form of a credit for any program fees paid to their activeOshawa account.

Over the coming weeks, city staff will be contacting all program registrants, and individuals on waitlists, to discuss questions relating to program cancellations and refund options.

Permit holders for community events in July will be contacted by the facility booking office with more information regarding special event permit cancellation. Also, facility permits for indoor spaces remain cancelled until further notice.

The city will continue to monitor and evaluate facility closures, services and programs to provide updates about any modified program offerings, as information is available.
