Overnight summer camps will be allowed to operate in Quebec this summer.
The Association des Camps du Québec (ACQ) said it learned it was given the green light late Thursday, with COVID-19 health orders in place.
Day camps, meanwhile, had already been given permission to reopen earlier last month.
On Thursday, the government added camp monitors to the list of essential workers, allowing them to be vaccinated against COVID-19 more quickly.
“Government authorities are currently working to finalize the health protocol assigned to summer camps and will unveil the measures in the coming days,” the organization said in a statement.
According to the press release, the complete set of rules and regulations for all camps will soon be unveiled by health authorities to ensure the safety of the children.
In the meantime, the ACQ is asking the Quebec government for $10 million in financial assistance to pay for the increased expenses needed to abide by health protocols.
