Recreational Camps

Recreational Camps are regulated under the Health Protection and Promotion Act. Ontario Regulation 503: Recreational Camps defines them as “a camp for recreational activities on a site in which sleeping and eating facilities are provided for temporary occupancy, with or without charge, for five or more persons who are under eighteen years of age or persons who have special needs.”

Southwestern Public Health inspects camps within Oxford and Elgin County to make sure they are meeting the regulation and providing safe, healthy camp experiences!
