NO-RISK REFUNDS, in light of COVID-19



An Important Note on COVID-19:

As we enter summer camp registration season, YouthWrite is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak. Though our programs are three months away, we are committed to maintaining safe and healthy camps for our youth participants and employees. As such, we are watching updates to the guidelines and recommendations of Alberta Health Services and the Public Health Agency of Canada. 


Despite schools being closed throughout the province, we remain hopeful that the Bennett Centre and Kamp Kiwanis, our two summer venues, will be able to operate in early July for YouthWrite River Valley and Peak Experiences, respectively. Both venues assure us that they are taking extra cleaning and sanitizing precautions. And currently, our camps fall under the “low importance” concerns for mass gatherings as our capacity is around 60, well under the maximum 250 individuals.
We recognize this is an evolving situation and will make updates to this statement as information from Alberta Health Services and/or The City of Edmonton, Edmonton Public Schools/Metro Continuing Education and Kamp Kiwanis changes or becomes available.


We want to encourage you to continue to register for any of our summer camps. Please be assured you will receive a full refund should COVID-19 circumstances further evolve, requiring that we cancel/postpone camps. In the two weeks prior to camp, if your child or anyone in your family is feeling ill or at risk, or if you believe your child should self-isolate, give us a call and let us know – we will be happy to provide a refund.
