Mountain Bike Kids Camp- ***AMAZING RENTAL BIKE FLEET FOR 2022***
This is a fun-filled and exciting way of exploring the great outdoors. Riding a winding mountain trail through forests, up and over hills, across streams and old farmlands, will focus your attention on each maneuver you make!
Each day the group will ride trails, use maps, and explore the area’s trail system.
Along the way stops may be made for hiking, snacks, looking for frogs, and more.
We will have 1 bus that will bring children from Kanata, with stops in Nepean & and Ottawa. At a lower price, parents will have a choice to use the bus or not, coordinate carpooling and/or drop their children at Camp Fortune.
Since COVID-19 is a very fluid and constantly changing situation and while many public health and safety measures are being lifted in Ontario, provincial guidance and directives do remain in place for some sectors and should continue to be followed. The government allowed business to make their own choices. We always strive to keep our camps as safe as possible but understand that many of you have grown tired of these restrictions.
As per the Mandatory vaccination:
The requirement to be fully vaccinated has been suspended. We continue to strongly encourage you to get fully vaccinated and to get booster doses as soon as you become eligible, in order to protect yourself and the people around you. Based on the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and in alignment with the National Advisory Committee on Immunization.
Although masking is no longer mandatory in Ontario, we highly recommend campers continue wearing a mask indoors especially when physical distancing may not be possible or proves to be challenging in crowded areas. Campers who take the bus to our Camp Fortune Facility will continue to wear a mask.
Please do complete a health-screening questionnaire daily.
