We are happy to share that we were able to open over 95% of our camp locations this summer. That is over 140 different locations across North America. We would like to sincerely thank our facility partners that include school districts, community associations, churches, parks departments and even two shopping malls that rented us underutilized parking areas! These partners recognize the benefits of an outdoor summer program for kids and bent over backwards to facilitate our programs.
We are also pleased to share that through the hard work and diligence of our staff and the cooperation of all of our campers and parents, our camp safety precautions resulted in zero reported transmissions of the Covid-19 virus at any of our 140 camp and pool locations across 15 cities in Canada and the US.
There were many questions from parents, campers, and staff members this past year. We tried our best to respond promptly, accurately, and respectfully. It has been a challenging year for everyone and there has been lots to learn - and there are always opportunities for improvement.
WE ARE READY, PREPARED AND EXCITED FOR 2021!
At Pedalheads, the safety of our camp participants (campers, instructors, and supervisors) is always our first priority.
In developing and refining our COVID-19 action plan, Pedalheads actively monitors and follows the guidance of official public health agencies in the jurisdictions that we operate. These include the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) along with regional and local public health agencies.
See our list of FAQ’s below and keep up to date with the latest regional and program updates here.
This Fall we are currently operating our British Columbia Swim programs only. Our standard cancelation guidelines apply to all Fall and Winter registrations. We will be reviewing our policies as we approach our 2021 summer camp registration openings planned for January.
In the event of a program cancellation initiated by Pedalheads, we will offer a full "no hassle", credit or refund (without fee) to the original form of payment. All impacted individuals will be directly contacted by Pedalheads.
If you answered "YES" to one of the questions included under ‘Key Symptoms of Illness’ (excluding fever), the swimmer should stay home for 24 hours from when the symptoms started. If the symptom improves, the swimmer may return to lessons when they feel well enough. If the symptom persists or worsens, seek a health assessment.
If you answered "YES" to two or more of the questions included under ‘Key Symptoms of Illness’ or the swimmer has a fever, seek a health assessment. A health assessment includes calling a physician or nurse practitioner, or 8-1-1. If a health assessment is required, the student should not return to lessons until COVID-19 has been excluded and symptoms have improved.
If you answered "YES" to questions 2 or 3, use the COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool to determine if the swimmer should seek testing for COVID-19. If a COVID-19 test is not recommended by the health assessment, the student can return to lessons when symptoms improve and they feel well enough but only after 14 days of self isolation.
