La Pêche cancels its day camp
June 3rd, 2020

La Pêche, June 3, 2020. After a long deliberation, the municipal council has made the very difficult decision to cancel the day camp that the Municipality holds every year, from the end of the school year to mid-August.

After careful consideration of all options, council had to decide to cancel the camp. Council members took into account security concerns, pressure on human, material and financial resources, and the declining interest in the camp (compared to previous years). Meeting government requirements for the four key indicators - physical distancing, emphasis on outdoor activities, adherence to health measures and individual activities - was also considered. Several municipalities made this heartbreaking decision.

Council is aware of the challenges that this decision may cause to the community and is currently examining the possibility of offering one-time outdoor activities to assist families.

Thank you for your understanding.
