Connections' Response to COVID-19 - Queen’s Summer Camps Cancelled

Given the current public health environment and challenges presented by physical distancing, Queen’s has made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person youth camps normally delivered throughout the summer. As a result, Connections Engineering Outreach is unable to facilitate our on-campus programs this summer. We understand that this news comes at a difficult time, but the health and safety of campers and camp staff is the university’s top priority. Although we are disappointed that we are not able to run our on-campus programs, our goal is to provide safe, engaging, and enriching virtual content throughout the summer. We ask for your patience as we continue to work out the details of these programs. For those who have already registered and paid for one of our summer programs, a full refund will follow within the next two weeks. We will also send a confirmation email once the refund has been processed. If you have any concerns or questions regarding the refund process, please contact desuree.degagne@queensu.ca The university knows that the camp experience is an important one for children and counsellors. Queen’s camps have been a popular tradition in Kingston for years, and the university looks forward to maintaining that tradition once it is safe to do so.
