As we move through the challenges of COVID-19, we are both proud and excited to be able to welcome your children into a safe and engaging environment, through our new Alternative Camps. 

  • The camps will run at various locations throughout the city for children 6-12 years of age, and operate from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm in groups of four children, accompanied by a staff person. Children will maintain physical distance from one another in their groups, as well as other groups. Please note that transportation or extended hours will not be provided.
  • The City will also be offering a virtual “Camp-In-A-Box” experience for children to participate in from home. Visit to access program details and online registration. Please call the Community Services Department with any questions or for more information at 905.420.4620. Visit for information. 


All in-person City events are cancelled until further notice. Visit for a full list of impacted events, some of which may take place virtually. Follow Pickering Events on Facebook to stay up-to-date on the latest!
