For the summer of 2021, the Community Safety Village of York Region is rolling out a series of Virtual Summer Camps! 

These camps are free of cost and registration can be completed online.

Due to the large amount of interest in our virtual programs, we ask that you are a resident of York Region. At this time we are limited to one camp per child, so if your child is selected for a particular camp they will not qualify for any others. Selection is based on a first-come, first-served basis. Please select only one camp per child so that we can provide this opportunity to as many children as possible in York Region.
