Welcome to Kalalla.com!

HIP HIP HURRAH!!!

Registration for Kalalla 2022 will open March 11!! 

The camp committee has been working very hard to develop plans and safety protocols to allow the girls to be on-site at the camp for the first time since 2019! A big thank you to all the volunteers who have given so much of their time and energy in this endeavour! We are just putting the finishing touches on the registration and health forms and they will be available in the next week.

The dates and fees for camp this summer are as follows: 

Campers: July 17-24 $620 
LITs: July 16-24 $665 

(Please note, we are considering some different formats for the LIT programme that might include more time at camp before the 16th. Please be in touch with us if you are considering enrolling your camper in the programme so that you can be a part of the conversation!) 

Of course, we are monitoring Public Health Information and government guidelines regarding COVID-19. We hope that the situation when it comes closer to the time, will allow for us to run in-person and on-site (overnight). We are making plans for an on-site overnight camp with the understanding that again this year, we will have to be nimble and flexible. 

If the camp is not able to be run on-site overnight, we are making alternative plans for a daycamp in the city July 18-22 along the lines of last year. The fee for this will be $260. If camp does not run on-site overnight, you will be given a full refund, or if you would like to enroll in the daycamp, we will refund you the difference. 

At this time, we have taken direction from the OCA and Public Health officials to review and refine our vaccine policy. Following that advice, this summer, the COVID-19 vaccine (as many of the vaccines and boosters for which your camper’s age group is eligible) will be included in our list of vaccines that are required for camp (as either staff or camper). This is not a decision at which we have arrived lightly; we are a small camp and every person in our camp family is important to us. We trust that this updated policy will help you feel secure in attending Camp Kalalla.

Work Weekend Fun! June 11-12

With no one having used the site for quite some time, there is lots of work to be done… and with all the isolating we have been doing, it would be great to have an opportunity to gather with our camp family in a covid-friendly way (in an outdoor setting).

The Management Committee (Mocha, Lambchop, Dennis and Jeff) along with our indefatigable Rob will be addressing some of the major tasks over the spring, but there are definitely some jobs that will be left over. So, as long as covid restrictions allow it, we invite you to bring yourself, your camper, your family, your friends to one or both of the days, as we meet and work together to get our beloved camp ready for use again… more details to follow, but please pencil it in!
